Like the Gucci tote, both of these high street carryalls feature a bamboo handle detail for that chic wow factor, and if you are wondering about versatility, just take a page from Princess Diana’s book.

Timeless: The Princess' bamboo handle totes were a go-to wardrobe staple

The Princess styled her bamboo handle tote with everything from jeans and a blazer, to sleek and simple daytime sheath dresses and even her iconic workout look: an oversized sweatshirt and bike shorts.

Dune's affordable twist on the Gucci bag is selling fast at M&S though! Don't worry if they sell out -  you can find the totes at John Lewis and on the Dune London website, too.
