The world of work is well and truly digital these days, and we all need a device to connect. If like us, the world is your office, then you will carry a laptop. This priceless piece of metal and glass is our connection to the world. So it is only fair that it gets the right bag to come along with you to your place of work

Whilst we love the tiny bag trend that is all over the fashion landscape right now, this just won’t do for work. We need a bag that we can get our laptop in, and possibly a few more essentials.

So keep reading for our ultimate list of pretty laptop bags for work, that you will actually want to use!

Zatchels Classic Satchel in Oxblood

Burberry Austen House-check canvas tote bag

If you want something a little more streamlined than a classic satchel; then a classic lightweight tote could be just the thing for you. We are a big fan of Burberry’s new direction under Riccardo Tisci, and this new style tote will soon be a classic.

This is a HUGE bag, that will fit your laptop in, and probably a small microwave. It will also ensure that you are the chicest at the cafe you work in on Wednesdays, eat that skinny Cappuccino Carol.

Cos Detachable-Pouch Leather Bag

If you are more of a minimal person at heart; then we recommend a high quality leather bag. Cos is the doyenne of minimal quality on the high-street.

This shopper-style bag is made from soft leather with a grained texture, choosing dark green over black will ensure you still have the edge in the style department.

Prada Vela studded nylon backpack

Want to go hands free? Well a good quality backpack could be the answer for you! We are huge fans of Prada’s new minimal backpacks. Offering you all the space you need, and you can grab life/work/colleagues with both hands.

If Prada is out of your budget, don’t worry, it is for us too! The high street has got us this season, see our picks of hughstreet backpacks below.

Pimkie structured woven shopper

Work can be hard, especially in the warmer months. If your head is well and truly in vacation mode, then indulge your laptop to the ULTIMATE summer bag. Yes the basket bag is your friend, it screams summer, is BANG on trend, and is genuinely really practical.

We are in love with this HUGE structured number from Pimkie. Coming in under £20, so you can actually still afford to book that 14 day cruise you really deserve!
