When I think of a bag I’d call a “best bet,” it’s a useful, simple design that could fit into a lot of different women’s lives and that comes at a reasonable price for what you get. The Vasic Collection Steady Satchel fits that perfectly: the brand new bag from one 2016’s contemporary brands to watch is a total workhorse for a three-figure price tag.

The first thing that attracted me to this bag is the color. There are plenty of black, tan, grey and burgundy totes out there for good prices, but navy blue is an often-overlooked color for bags. That makes any design a little more interesting, but it does it without changing the design in a way that would make it inappropriate for even the most conservative office. Navy is neutral and sophisticated, after all; it just isn’t quite as widely used on handbags as its fellow neutrals.

What really hooked me, though, were the bag’s dimensions. The bag is a little deeper than the average tote of this size, though, which makes the bag’s internal capacity exponentially more flexible for day-to-day life necessities like your lunch Tupperware. All in all, this bag makes for a pretty great work tote.

You can pick up one of your own for $600 via Shopbop.
