The 11 Best Tote Bags for Work (Or, Um, Life)

Because we all need pretty vessels to corral our sh*t.

When readers buy some of the products featured on Style & Living using the links below, we may receive a commission from each sale. Prices are subject to change.

Anyone who’s ever commuted to a workplace knows that there is a lot of stuff you need to cram in your bag. Headphones? Check. Water? Check. Lip balm, workout clothes, and your Kindle? Check, check, check. And if you’re like me, you’re throwing in a thousand last-minute items as you run out of the door (Where are my sunglasses?! I know I bought gum last week!). Which means you need a bag to fit all this stuff, and you also want it to look as sleek and sophisticated (or edgy, or cute) as you.

Here we give you 11 perfect options (starting at just $26!), and the great news is that these beauties aren’t just for working ladies—they’re equally functional for college kids and moms alike. Because let’s face it, we’re all jamming as much as we can into our bags as we head out the door, and we all need pretty purses to contain it all.
