At the LA Kings game at the Staples Center, Kate Hudson showed off more than her hockey pride when she toted around a new embroidered printed hobo that took her sporty look to bohemian-chic heights. The actress topped her game-day outfit — gray silk blouse, tan suede jacket, and wide-leg denim — with her eye-catching tote, as well as an official LA Kings cap ($28) to show her support.

It's no secret that we adore Sophia Bush's effortless style, so when we spotted the brunette beauty toting a new two-tone canvas Apolis bag ($218), it shot straight to the top of our Summer must-have list. While strolling through LAX, the actress worked her tote with a too-cool travel look that's easy to re-create. Later, she carried it with a more dressed-up look at an event. Shop Sophia's exact bag — bonus it's fireproof! — to work with all of your Summer ensembles, both overseas and local.

We usually associate canvas with beach totes and summertime fun, but times have changed and so have all things canvas. This earth-friendly textile has been waxed, dyed, and embellished for our fashionable pleasure. You can take the natural route and opt for lighter colors, or dare to try it with a fabulous faux finish — some even look like leather! I dig the light, textural quality and breathable nature. Let loose, try canvas.
Some slogans are painfully cheesy and some are downright brilliant. Guess which category this Dogeared Canvas Bag ($23) fits into? Ding, ding, ding.

Carrying this bag will not only make you look caring, but comical as well. Plus, imagine how many new friends it'll help you make.
