The Best Work Bags You’ve Never Heard of
Going to work cute is a must, and every girl needs a bag that can handle all of her work items and look cute at the same time. We have rounded up some of the best kept secrets in work bags and are sharing them with you!
Dagne Dover was created for the girl on the go. They strive to create the “perfect bag”. They focus on providing solutions to everyday needs so that people can spend time enjoying life! There are a few bags that make it to the top of the list here!
Their top selling bag is the Classic Tote. This tote is a perfect medium sized bag that can fit a 13” computer, an ipad, key ring and a bunch of other things!. It features a neoprene water bottle holder that clips right into the bag, and smart pockets for your lip gloss and phone. This has been our go to bag this season! - Price - $245
Another bag that deserves a look is their larger version of the Classic tote - the Legend tote. This bag really has everything, including room for a 15” laptop, ipad, phone, water bottle holder, and key ring. It's also much larger than the classic tote so you can also tote your tennis shoes if you want to hit the gym after work, or your work shoes if you don't want to wear your heels during your morning commute! Price - $265
A perfect complement to each tote is the Essentials Clutch wallet - We put this right into our classic tote and it fits perfectly. This clutch has room for 8 credit cards, a lip gloss, your phone, and of course your money! It makes it easy to just grab and go if you just need the essentials instead of grabbing your entire bag. The stylish wristlet makes it easier to carry than a traditional wallet. - Price - $125
We have been LOVING these bags, and while they may seem expensive, definitely wait until they have their sample sale. During the sale they sell their bags at 50% off!

Definitely check out the super cute Taylor tote by Gregory Sylvia. This tote has a classic look and is made from soft leather and gold-toned hardware. It also features a front zippered pocket and an interior zippered pouch for extra space. It doesn’t hurt that this must have bag is designed and sold by a black-owned business (win!).

Lo & Sons
We at heard of Lo & Son’s about 5 years ago when they were just newbies on the scene. Now it seems like people are definitely catching wind of their great work totes!
The TT - The TT is A lightweight yet large everyday carryall bag and 13 inch laptop tote. It is made out of high-quality water resistant nylon and features a padded laptop compartment, plenty of pockets for all your essentials, and a back sleeve for slipping over suitcase handles to help ease the load on your shoulders. This is a bag for those ladies who like a longer tote (read: laptop slides in long ways) rather than a shorter wider tote. This tote has tons of pockets and is sure to keep all of your things organized! Price - $260
The Seville Tote - This tote is a shorter wider tote and allows you to have a bit of flexibility in the look and design of your bag. It comes in a 13” and 15” laptop size and is made of leather. The unique quality of this bag is that you can actually change the look of the outside of your bag by placing the tote into different “shells.” The shells come in various colors of leather as well as lightweight nylon to make it easier to carry. Price $398 - $448.
The rest of their website is also worth a look with bags for men as well as super cute overnight totes and backpacks. Lo & Sons is another pricey option, but if you sign up for their newsletter you get 15% off of your first order. You will also be notified of upcoming sales if you sign up for their newsletter. Hint: big sales tend to happen with the changing of the seasons and releasing of new designs/colors!
