I’ll admit it: While I do love my current WFH situation (hellooo sweatpants all day, every day), I can’t help but anticipate the Big Return to the Office—and specifically, what I’ll be wearing when I’m making the Big Return to the Office. Blame it on #StayAtHome monotony, or blame it on my raging shopaholism, but looking for fresh office clothes has become my new hobby. And currently, I’m hyper-fixated on finding the best work bag money can buy.
What qualities does the perfect work tote have, you ask? Well first, it needs to be big enough to fit a laptop, yet not so gigantic that it’s basically a weekender bag. It also needs to look profesh, yet not too stiff. Oh, and it needs to have lots of organizational pockets to hold all the miscellany I’ve convinced myself I absolutely need to get through a workday and all of my commutes (i.e., books, various types of lip balm, snacks). Finding the right work bag may be a bit challenging—but not impossible.
If you’re in the market for a new office bag, too, (despite your “office” being your bed at the moment), then scroll through for 25 of the best work bags worth carrying. From sturdy totes to crossbody styles to roomy laptop bags with padded protection, find it all, below.
