You can’t go wrong with a timeless favorite. L.L. Bean’s zip-top tote is customizable right down to sizeand monogram, and right now the beige tote with camouflage handles is 12 percet off. Its handles can hold up to 500 pounds—not that you’ll be carrying a load that heavy, but it’s always good to know your goods are secure. The bottom is reinforced, too. This nautical tote works at the office, the beach, or just every day. It’s the bag you’ll never get rid of.

Is there anything more elegant than beige linen? Correct answer: no. This relaxed shirt keeps the sun off your shoulders while paired with your favorite pants for dinner outside. Available in four colors, the more you wear it, throw it in your bag, or tie it around your shoulders, the softer it will get. The best part is you can pop it in the wash to keep it fresh without the expensive dry cleaning bill that your other linen items require.
