Figuring out what to wear to work shouldn’t be a bore. To make your weekdays easier, welcome to Business Casual. Every Wednesday, we’ll highlight the best office-appropriate clothes, whether it’s for the job you have or the one you want.
Some bags are meant for having a good time — you want them perched on your wrist while shimmying and shaking with a cocktail in hand. And others are more practical. They’re the workhorses of your closet and take the abuse that comes with being used day-in and day-out. On any given weekday you’re rushing out the door with the contents of your life dangling from your shoulders. For some that means just a set of keys and a wallet while for others it’s all of that plus a laptop, makeup, and maybe a granola bar or two. No matter how much junk you need to schlep, you don’t need to spend a lot to get an office-ready, chic work bag. Scroll down to shop our favorites under $250 and save that extra cash for your next, much deserved vacation.
If you’ve always wanted a light-colored bag but feared ruining it, here’s an inexpensive one that won’t have you running away from glasses of red wine. Original Price: $58
