When winter is in full swing, Fashionistas tend to stow away all of their colorful pieces from the summer and fall and opt for a more neutral palette to get through the cold months. This can leave us all with a bad case of the winter blues. However, there are still ways to let your personality shine through even the thickest layer of your black parka. One option you can try: grab a printed tote to carry all of your belongings across campus.

This Fashionista has done an excellent job of driving away the dreariness November usually brings by carrying a quirky and unique tote bag with a granny-style cat motif. Her bag brings in a more vintage feel and it's easy to tell that she enjoys thrift store shopping. Another way to bring life into your bag is to choose one with a large print like this. When an outfit is made up of mostly neutral colors, adding a big and bright print can add a punch of interest. If you want to go out on a limb and really express your quirky side, opt for a tote like this. If you're minimalist about fashion, simply pick a tote in a bright or neon hue to give your outfit the perfect pick-me-up.

Tote bags come in all shapes and colors, so all you have to do is take your pick from the plethora of styles out there. Basically, beating the winter blues just got way easier.

Spotted: Stand-out totes are all over Kate Spade’s handbag collection.
