Getting dressed for work is something that women’s fashion magazines and websites tackle regularly, and with varying results. (Who thinks that putting a blazer over a crop top is going to fly as a good day-to-night option in most workplaces?) Because we spend most of our time thinking about a particular part of the fashion industry, though, we’d like to think that we can scope out good workwear with slightly more accurate results.
A lot of you sent in questions about selecting a solid work bag when we asked to hear about your fashion problems for Ask PurseBlog, so we thought it might be most expedient to tackle this issue en masse. Below, we’ve selected over two dozen bags that we think will fit in a lot of different work environments, beyond just your standard Prada Saffiano Totes and Louis Vuitton Neverfulls. Some are on the slightly more casual end, while others will pass muster in even the strictest of corporate headquarters, and we found good-looking options starting from just $240.
All of the bags will fit a small laptop (and if your laptop is bigger, many of the bags come in a larger size), and almost all can either be carried on your shoulder or include an optional shoulder strap. When it comes to a work bag, fashion means very little without the function to go with it.
