As a woman (or fella) on the move, you probably have come to rely on the use of a tote bag or laptop bag to help you transport your technology and other essentials. Back in the day, I used to hate purchasing laptop bags because they weren’t very aesthetically pleasing. But now there is a hearty and robust selection of both stylish bags that are functional. I’ve compiled a list of fabulous tote and laptop bags that are not only work approved, but can be used for travel and daily use.
OGIO Hampton’s Women’s Tote Bag
I personally purchased this tote bag over a year ago, and I still get asked about it when I’m on the go. The bag is not only cute, but has a compartment for just about everything while still being streamlined and easy to carry. Since it’s a tote bag, you can also use it as a purse if you desire. And it’s roomy so you have space and pockets for everything—laptop, tablet, smartphone, digital camera, and more. I love, love, love, this bag and I’ve recommended it several times to friends, colleagues, and even on this site. For a full review of the OGIO Hampton’s Women’s Tote Bag, click here. It comes in a variety of colors to match your personal style. OGIO, $70.00.
Coach Bleeker Business Tote in Harness Leather
Fellas, I have something for you, too. This sweet leather bag from Coach is just what the doctor ordered. Visually stunning and amazingly helpful, you can make moves whilst showing you’ve got some style. You can hold the bag with the handles or by using straps, which can really help while traveling. Inside pockets allow you to fit in all of your essentials and tech items without missing a beat. Coach, $598.
Classic Herringbone Laptop Tote
When looking to purchase a bag for a friend of mine, I came across this beauty. What I like about this bag is it has that traditional business look with an “upscale edge” without breaking the bank. It is also very functional with a pocket for just about everything inside it’s gorgeous interior. The bag fits up to 16” of laptop hardware and also have pockets for writing utensils, smartphone, tablet, cords and chargers, and a side pocket too for even more storage. It’s a winner. $99.00, Mobile Edge.
OGIO Midtown Women’s Messenger
If a messenger bag is more your style, then this one’s for you. Similar to the Hampton’s Tote, this bag packs a punch but does so fashionably. The interior is quilted and padded for durability, and it fits a 15” laptop alongside your other electronic essentials. I am eyeing this bag for my next purchase. $70.00, OGIO.
Kalio Blue Flower Laptop Tote
Who says laptop bags have to be boring? This bag certainly proves that that is not the case. It’s floral design is a breath of fresh air, yet is still suitable for work. The bag fits up to a 15.4” laptop and has a padded laptop compartment. There are also spaces for credit cards, pens, even beverages. Pretty freaking neat! $79.99, Kailo Chic.
Lug Sprout Carry-All Tote Bag
Is it a tote? Is it a backpack? Is it a messenger bag? Well, it’s actually all three. Which is why I love this bag because it’s versatile and can accommodate many different uses. It’s also casual enough for personal toting and spiffy enough for the office too. It has padded shoulder straps for comfort and soft-lined inside pockets. Fits up to 15.4” laptops with ease. I like it! $87.00, eBags.
I hope my selection of Tote and Laptop Bags has something that catches your fancy.
