Multitasking Totes

Shoulder, clutch or hand-held? How to carry a bag has become the style question du jour, and the new wave of carry-all totes allows you to choose. Alexander Wang’s super-supple leather Emile bag and Marc by Marc Jacobs expandable holdall can be toted by their small, ladylike handles or worn hands-free, thanks to detachable cross-body straps. Deceptively roomy enough for all your city essentials, they are clever as well as covetable. All styles shown here can be purchased on Net-A-Porter.
