Searching for a new summer bag? This popular Coach tote is the accessory you'll use every day

Coach shoppers love the simple, yet durable City Tote Bag — it's roomy enough to stash a laptop, shoes and more whether you're traveling or going to work.

Tote bags never go out of style — that's why they're such a good investment. In fact, I've had the same leather Coach tote bag for over 10 years and I still get compliments on it. I use it to run errands, carry my laptop to the office, take sneakers to the gym and hold sunscreen on vacation — a good bag can do it all and look good doing it. If you're in the market for a timeless tote this Memorial Day weekend, I found one I think you're going to love. Meet the City Tote Bag. More than 2,000 Coach shoppers described it as "versatile," "roomy," and "simple, yet elegant."

It's rare to find a tote bag this good — especially one from Coach — for just over $100! And if you consider the cost per wear, you'll definitely get your money's worth.

The City Tote Bag comes in over 10 different colors so there's something for everyone. Choose from neutrals like white, tan or black, or go for something brighter for the warm weather months ahead — I spotted fun shades like lavender and yellow. No matter which one you pick, you can carry it from season to season and for years to come — yes, years. Like a lot of Coach's bags, the City Tote is super durable. There are two high-quality material options depending on the color you choose: double-face leather or the brand's signature coated canvas with leather handles.

"City totes are excellent workhorses," said one loyal fan. "I use it for work, travel and weekend store runs. It holds up so well under heavy weight, dirty kiddie fingers and my own carelessness. I have a few in different prints so I can rotate amongst them. A must-have."

This five-star reviewer agreed: "I've had my City Tote for a while. ... I've gotten so any compliments. It's a year-around tote for me!"

Besides durability, the City Tote Bag is functional. It has 10-inch long handles so you can comfortably carry it over your shoulder. Inside, it has a single zip pocket to store your essentials, like your keys, wallet, phone, etc. Other than that, the rest of the bag is open to fill it with whatever you'd like — think a water bottle, umbrella, Kindle, makeup, sunglasses or shoes depending on your day's outing. It has a single snap closure at the top, but you can keep it open if you have a lot to stuff inside. For reference, it fits a 13-inch laptop, but according to reviewers, it can fit so much more.

"This is a perfect work bag," shared one shopper. "It is the perfect size for files and papers. I just went to Florida and it made a great 'purse' for getting on an airplane too."

Another happy customer wrote that it "fits everything I need for work every day, including my lunch and sneakers."

"I originally bought the tote for travel. Since I've returned home, I've continued to use it," said a fellow fan. "I love the quality and size. Almost anything can fit in my bag."

Shoppers also can't help but comment on how beautiful the City Tote Bag is. Like a crisp white button-down shirt or a pair of perfectly fitted jeans, this bag is the epitome of understated luxury. It's a staple that may not stand out with flashy prints or big logos — instead, people will notice its craftsmanship, elegance and sophistication.

One shopper who said they "absolutely love the bag" is stocking up in multiple shades. "I've ordered it in a few different colors. It's high quality and looks luxurious," they said. "Perfect for sleepovers, travel and work!"

"This is just a beautiful tote. ... It looks high-end and for the spring and summer — a perfect addition," said a five-star reviewer. "I ordered the matching wallet. These totes are becoming my favorite bag. Another home run from Coach!

With that in mind, if you're looking for an effortlessly stylish bag to carry this summer, consider the City Tote Bag from Coach. From shopping trips to beach excursions, there's nowhere this tote bag can't help you go.

If you have a collection of neutral handbags, consider switching it up this season with this lavender hue. "This bag is purple inside and out!" shared one shopper. "Coach really hit it out of the park with this color — the website does not do it justice. Do not hesitate. It's beautiful."
