Spacious and versatile, tote bags are the must have for any lady looking to carry all their collegiate gear while still being organized. Stash away your note ridden binders and pads in a hot pink tote or a sophisticated black. Get the same kind of storage from an everyday striped or flirty lacy alternative.

The classic method of hauling textbooks and loaded binders gets an update in a cute polka dot and muted floral pattern. You could also try this sturdy teal bag or lively zebra print. Now that you’re in college you want a book bag that will compliment your everyday look. Think about how much you have to bring to class and whether you want to invest in something that will last all four years.

With the versatility of a crossbody and the compartments of a tote bag, the satchel is the more mature handbag for any young woman. The top handle provides a sturdy grip on your belongings, while the strap offers a hands free release from your handbag. A faux black leather satchel oozes class, and a slick blue will brighten up your look. A charming polka dot stands out, or go punk with a stark white. Neutral of muted styles of satchels will last you for years to come, while bright colors or motifs seem more youthful. Whichever style you chose, let your refined handbag lead the way into your young adult life.
