Ella Basketweave Tote
"While basic black and tan leather totes are my typical go-tos for work bags, I'm eyeing this ultra-chic navy option from Tory Burch. The quilted satin material is so luxe, while the bag itself is super spacious, sturdy, and — most importantly — functional." — Angela Melero, executive editor, TZR

“While Loewe is known for being a bit artsy and conceptual, the Spanish label makes surprisingly laptop-friendly work bags. I like the large styles from the Flamenco line best for the playful knotted details — something that stands out in a line-up of standard commuter totes.” — Alison Syrett, deputy fashion editor, TZR

Soft M Hobo
"I needed a cute work bag that I can also bring to fashion events (especially to NYFW) and Mansur Gavriel's Hobo style fits the bill perfectly. The slouchy style gives it a nonchalant look, the straps don't fall off my shoulders, and it fits my laptop!" — Marina Liao, senior fashion news editor, TZR

"I like to travel light so I tend to gravitate towards bags that will fit my laptop, wallet, phone, and a few snacks, but not much else. This Wandler bag is not too big, not too small, but just right. Plus, the sleek, minimal shape will complement any outfit." — Erin Lukas, deputy beauty editor, TZR

"Yes, I was suckered into the ironic embroidery LL Bean tote TikTok trend. This beast holds my entire life, always keeps its shape, and makes me feel like a boarding school kid. The embroidery reads "Says Who?" which never fails to make me friends at the airport." — Amanda Ross, beauty editor, TZR

“I tell everyone about Cuyana’s super-sleek leather backpack — it’s that good. There's a designated pocket to store my laptop and plenty of extra space for the rest of my everyday essentials (agenda, chargers, embarrassing amount lip products, etc.). Not included: Shoulder pain.” — Kelsey Stewart, associate fashion editor, TZR

“I tend to overload my work bag, so I prefer a structured style that will keep its shape. I love the spring 2023 detailing on Loewe's classic Anagram tote — the buttery smooth leather comes in a gorgeous tan with white accents for a little pop. It can also be carried with a top handle or shoulder strap, making it multifunctional.” — Rebecca Iloulian, director, newsletter revenue and marketing, BDG

“Though I love my trusty canvas tote, I've been on the hunt for a durable, structured, purse/work bag hybrid with a strap that doesn't dig into my shoulder. As soon as I saw this new Baggu style, I knew I had to have it! I usually go for color but basic black is perfect for ripping and running through the city.” — Samantha Scott, newsletter editor + strategist, BDG
