Pick up an oversized woven or cloth beach tote and get ready to hit the sand. Now we just need some sun!

Ready for relaxation? Us too.

While there are still a few weeks to go before we activate beach mode, there’s no denying a little shopping gets us in the vay-cay mood.

A classic straw, woven or raffia tote is the perfect option to lug the towel, sunscreen, book and bottle that are essentials for a day on the sand.

A cloth or canvas versionis a hardier option that might cope better with a wet swimsuit or heavy bottle of wine – just saying.

So stylish are these versions, many of them would also do double duty as the perfect accompaniment for a brunch, long-lunch or vineyard visit too.

Here’s what we’re shopping now.
