8 Styling Ideas for Beach Tote Bags
Summer is coming. Maybe not soon enough, but it will be here and we all need to get ready for those amazing beach days we so dream of. You can get ready either for an exotic seaside vacation or for a hot bachelorette party with your girls on the beach – it does not matter. All that matters is to start looking for some amazing beach tote bags you can match to your beach attire or you can style up to stand out from the crowd.
If you think about making personalized summer gifts as well, you have come to the right place, as we have 8 easy and fun styling ideas for beach tote bags. As long as you remember that excursions and beach days require large tote bags, you should have no other worries. Let’s get creative then, shall we?
1. Ride the Seahorse
Nothing evokes the cool tingling of the sea caressing your feet, the wind through your hair, the marine scent filling out your lungs, or the sun kissing your skin like a seahorse. Cute, whimsical, summery, and lighthearted, seahorse prints can turn a plain white beach tote bag into a work of art.
Make sure the print colors will not fade in contact with water and sun or due to long exposure to heat. Color printing canvas is an easy and affordable process, so you can make more than just one tote bag. If you plan a trip out with the girls, get such beach tote bags in bulk and print them as holiday’s gifts for them.
2. Slow-Paced Turtle Fun
If you feel your creative juices flowing and the upcoming summer filling you up with energy, then you may consider a quick and easy DIY project. A solid tote bag is perfect for the beach. Large, sturdy, and resilient to the elements, it makes a great addition to your wardrobe.
However, if you want to unleash your love for summer and everything marine, take your time and collect scraps of cloth. Then sew them on the bag to make a nice turtle companion for your beach days. You can also stylize the bag’s handles to make it a ruffle bag with an attitude.
3. You are the Style of Your Bag
If it sounds a bit odd, hear us out. Instead of styling the bag to match your beach outfits, personal style, and attitude, why don’t you choose a bag that goes with everything?
The only thing a polyester black solid beach bag needs is to accompany your superb summer dress to any beach party with your stylish friends. The advantage of such amazing large tote bags is that they work miracles with your mid-day swim suit or beach dress, while they style up a casual or a hip outfit for a summer’s night party.
4. Painters have nothing on you
If arts and crafts are your thing, then go wild for your own beach bag or for your friends’ ones! Pick heavy cotton two-tone beach bags (a combination of white and deep marine blue will help) and use dip dye color detailing to turn them into veritable works of art!
Make sure the color will not fade in the sun or wash away in contact with water, otherwise you can be as expressionist or impressionist as you want. One of the biggest advantages of these beach tote bags is their versatility: go grocery shopping early in the morning to the local farmer’s market in your beach village, then pick up your bathing suit and hit those waves!
5. Send a message on a… bag
Such personalized canvas zippered tote bags work amazing with a written label, message, or statement, especially when you and your ladies go on vacation together. They also make exceptional bridesmaids apparel if you girls are ready to party.
As we said above, totebags are extremely versatile and useful. You can clean them a little after the beach session and take them out as trendy casual bags for shopping or a night out.
6. Flower Power
If you carry a lot when you go to the beach for a day (and especially for a week’s long trip), an oversized jumbo twill cotton beach tote bag will be there for you to assist.
Pick a bundle and style them up with yo-yo flowers applications. All you need are some cloth scrapes, some buttons, and your sewing skills. You can make one for each of your girlfriends, for your lovely and beach-loving female family members, for your daughter, and so on.
7. Swim like a Fish
If you love the seaside as fish love the sea, then this style is the right one for you. Pick large poly zippered tote bags in vibrant colors (an electric shade of blue might be perfect) and start your creative project by applying buttons and scraps of cloth to create a marine landscape.
If you love Nemo or Dori, you can go wild and pick the exact colors to recreate the marine life you felt so in love with a few years back. It matters less the actual design as long as you have fun with your creative endeavors.
8. Bling in the Fun
Hobo style felt beach tote bags are all the rage right now: they look like baskets with more class and they look like purses with a less pretentious flair. In other words, they are perfect for bridesmaids, beach parties with your girls, and a full seaside vacation in a foreign exotic country, and so on.
One of the biggest advantages of hobo felt beach tote bags is that you can style them up any way you want. For this entry, we love keychain charms or keychain colored pom-poms attached to the handles. They add color, texture, a bit of necessary beach bling, sound, and entertainment.
