Listen, I have nothing against backpacks, but if I want to go to an event straight from the office without looking like I just came from homeroom (does this exist anymore?), I’m going to need a sturdy bag to carry my laptop that doesn’t, uh, actually look like a laptop bag. Thanks to these gorgeous tote, crossbody, and shoulder bags that fit either a 13- or 15-inch laptop, ahead, I can do just that—and so can you. If you’re heading back to the office, mark the occasion with a stylish new laptop bag to carry all your essentials.
