These 15 Work Bags Are as Professional as They Are Pretty

When it comes to work attire, we can all agree that functionality is key. From choosing an outfit that’s HR-friendly but still good for after-work drinks to finding shoes that won’t kill your feet while you’re running around the office, it’s all about finding balance in your 9-to-5 wardrobe. Most of the time, though, functionality and fashion don’t go hand in hand, and you may feel like some of your current options are lacking in some areas. This is especially true if you’re in the market to refresh your work wardrobe and looking for a new work bag. Is there no way you can avoid being a bag lady? Is there a bag out there for you and your workload? Well, yes. Yes, there is.

So to help you pinpoint what type of work bag works for you (pun intended), we’ve rounded up the best options. From laptop bags and tote bags to bucket bags and satchel bags, the options ahead are not only pretty and functional, but they’ll also make your work life easier. The bag-lady days are over.

1. Laptop Bags
