Now that it's officially September, it's time to trade in our bright, colourful summery pieces in favour of some rich, autumnal patterns and hues. Aside from investing in some new cable knits and duster coats for fall, one accessory that deserves an upgrade is your handbag.
Changing your handbag each season might not be common practice for everyone, but it's a great way to update your outfit for a more cohesive, season-appropriate look. One fall-ready handbag that can help take you through the season is the Reversible Faux Leather Tote & Wristlet by Street Level, an affordable option available at Nordstrom (shop here for Canada, shop here for U.S.).
Street Level's versatile reversible tote has is available in five different shades of soft faux leather to compliment your fall and winter looks. The spacious bag includes a matching wristlet for organization and a magnetic closure for easy access to your everyday essentials, including tech, makeup bag, wallet and more.
What people are saying
Street Level's reversible tote has earned an impressive 4.6-star rating based on more than 1,700 customer reviews from Nordstrom shoppers.
The budget-friendly tote delivers major style points and has been called a "great everyday bag" and thanks to it's versatility, "one of the smartest purchases" shoppers have made for their wardrobe.
"I ordered this bag as an everyday tote for to and from work," one shopper wrote. "The bag is high quality faux leather and cleans so well. It's big enough for everything you need— books, tablet, change of clothes, snacks etc. I had previously used a small satchel but this is so much easier to throw everything in and go."
"I love this bag," another said. "It's a great quality at a very reasonable price. I can fit so much in the bag. It's lightweight and durable. Definitely suggest this bag. I got the cognac colour- it goes with everything!"
Street Level's tote has been called an affordable dupe for luxe leather handbags, but there are some things to consider before you buy. Some shoppers have said that like leather, the faux-leather exterior of the bag can scratch easily.
Another thing to consider is the bag's size. Some shoppers were surprised by how big the bag is, which some said was "too big" for their petite frame. Another common complaint was a "smell" from the synthetic leather but some note that it could be caused from packaging, and usually disappears.
If you're looking for a catch-all bag to take with you to work or while running errands, Street Level's Reversible Faux Leather Tote might be for you. The spacious bag is affordable, roomy and delivers major style points without the hefty price tag of real leather.
