As the season begins to shift it’s time to upgrade that one thing you carry with you every single day… your work bag. SCS reader Lindsey R. asked us for our picks for the perfect fall bag that works for work.
1. Rebecca Minkoff Monroe Tote, $275
The class black tote. You can’t go wrong with this basic black tote. Roomy enough for a laptop, files, you name it. It’s your ultimate go-to to wear across the seasons.
2. Madewell The Lafayette Bucket Bag, $198
Did someone say casual Friday? I absolutely love the shape of this classic bucket bag. Paired with denim, a white tee, navy blazer and flats and you’ve got yourself the most pulled together end of week outfit to take you to right into the weekend.
3. Chloe Marcie New Leather Tote, $1,895
If you’re going to really invest in a great work bag, this is the one. The grey color is incredible and the leather perfectly soft. Wear it to work, wear it out. Please, wear this bag anywhere and everywhere.
4. Kate Spade Weston Avenue Brice, $598
The rich colors, bold stripes and suede texture adds instant chic to any professional look. It’s incredibly unique, certainly standing out from other professional bags. For now through the winter this bag is the perfect carryall.
5. Dagne Dover The Tote, $265
If you’re like me and always digging in the bottom of your bag for your keys or your lipstick, this bag is for you. There is a compartment for everything. And I do mean everything. Need a place for your water bottle. Check. Keys need to be attached to a latch? Check. Special spot for your laptop? It’s got that too. For all you organization freaks out there, this bag’s for you.
Tell me, which bag is your favorite?
