Can Our Brown Wool Tote Bag Go With Any 2021 Fashion Trends?


We finally made it to 2021, hooray! While the air is just a bit nippy, you still can’t help but want to stay on trend with your winter fashions. This year there are several new pieces of clothing that are fun and stylish for this year. You might not know the latest winter trends so we’ve got you covered. There’s that one staple that stays with us every year and that’s the “fit-everything” tote. But is there really a tote bag that can go with everything?


Take this 144 Collection brown wool tote bag, for example. Is it truly the most versatile handmade tote bag out there? This simple design guarantees that it can go with everything you can imagine. Yes, even what you would least expect! With sturdy straps and strong build, you can use this for any time of the year, especially if you’re on the go and not coming back home any time soon. Both efficient and stylish, get rid of the hassle of picking your next outfit and have us do it for you. Can it win several rounds of style matching? Let’s see!

Round One: Butter Yellow Anything


We know no one wants to associate their clothes with food, but before “butter yellow” turns you away, take a look at this soft sweater that could be a new staple in your wardrobe. This pale yellow will not only be the perfect transition from winter to spring, but will compliment the brown tones of your tote bag. Like black and white, yellow and brown are those colors that will always compliment each other.

Round Two: Ballet Flats


Need to be somewhere fast and still show off your fashion sense? A good fashion tip is to try to match their shoes to their top. With ballet flats coming back into style out of the simple need for all around comfort, add these flats to go with your butter yellow top and once you’re on the go, bring the tote to compliment your matching look.

Round Three: Denim on Denim on Denim


Denim, perfect to be popular for 70’s fashion and still popular to this day, will go perfect with your handmade bag. Both pieces are strong enough to fight off the cold and stay durable for each passing year. Let your look transcend time and keep both jeans and the handbag as your closet staple pieces. Whether your jeans are flair, patched or simply skinny, you can never go wrong with adding this tote to complete your look.

Round Four: Chelsea Boots


Chelsea boots have been on trend for a while and if you don’t already have them, they’ll be a good choice for your 2021 fashion. They’re a simple pair of boots while still adding that flair to your look with the mesh center. Like the tote, Chelsea boots are suited to be styled up or down. So put them with your best slacks for a professional look or throw on your jeans to be cute and casual.

Round Five: Cotton Face Masks


For this winter especially, protect yourself and others from the coronavirus. While you can’t use your bag to protect yourself, you can use it to carry everything that could protect you. Pair it with a monochrome cotton face mask from 144 Collection, throw on your coat and get going. Nothing can stop you from showing off your style, not even a pandemic.

Round Six: Puffed and Quilted Coats


You can’t have winter fashion without your warm coat! This year, fabrics like puffed or quilted coats are in. For the person who doesn’t like to shove everything in their pockets, take the tote with you. With two interior pockets, you’ll definitely have enough space for all your essentials. Paired with the wool of this tote, there’s no way you can’t be the epitome of warmth. Finally make other people jealous by cozying up with this tote, because you know they’ll ask you where you got the perfect winter handbag.

It’s the brown wool tote bag as the winner of 2021! So, take one less worry off of your plate by adding this handmade tote bag to your collection as you look to gather all your style choices for this year!
