Marni Polka Dot Laptop Tote

Marni Polka Dot Laptop Tote Who says carrying around your laptop needs to be a boring affair? Marni has taken polka dots to the extreme in terms of size here, allowing you to manage tech on the go in style. This is one of my favorite briefcase alternatives. You can easily double it up as a tote for any purpose, or even a really small weekend bag.


ASOS Satchel Bag with Scallop Bar Detail

ASOS Satchel Bag with Scallop Bar Detail I am a massive fan of satchels, which is why they almost always appear in my bag posts. However, I particularly adore this one, because it comes in a few pastel shades. It has quite a smooth finish, which means it wipes down easily. That may not mean a lot to some women, but I am disastrous, which means I tend to spill everything on my bags.


Michael Kors Top Zip Tote

Michael Kors Top Zip Tote One of the reasons briefcases have been so popular is that they have a place for everything. Now that the modern day version of ‘everything’ can include a laptop, tablet, phone, e-reader, half a beauty store, we need much more space. This is something Michael Kors knows, which is why this zip top tote is so awesome. It comes in some more sensible colors, but I love the vibrancy of the blue one in particular.


The Michael Kors Top Zip Tote doesn't just score high on functionality; it's a bona fide style statement. Made from high-quality leather, it features a polished design to match your professional attire while keeping it fabulously fashionable. The spacious interior with pockets ensures your essentials are organized and secure. And for those who are always on-the-go, the robust handles provide comfort and durability. Whether you're dashing to a meeting or catching a flight, it's the perfect companion to ensure you look put-together and can carry your world with you. Who says work accessories can't be chic and practical?


Gucci Vintage Web Medium Boston Bag

Gucci Vintage Web Medium Boston Bag I do love to add a bit of vintage to my life. Clearly, this Gucci vintage bag isn’t entirely vintage, it is just a remake. However, I do think a good old vintage bag from pretty much any brand will boost your workplace outfit tremendously. Not only are they often more unique, they’re made from sturdy materials too.


Dooney and Bourke Pansy Leisure Shopper

Dooney and Bourke Pansy Leisure Shopper Oh I do love a good dash of floral. Dooney and Bourke have taken ‘dash’ to the extremes here, by literally plastering their shopper with pansies. This bag comes in yellow also, but I quite like the whole English garden vibe that these colors give off. Like any good shopper, it comes with plenty of room, so if you hoard on the go like I do it will be very useful.


Dune Deeley Frame Bag

Dune Deeley Frame Bag There is a bit of a mod feel about this bag. Thanks to the sensible blend of colors, I reckon it is suitable even for the most rigid of workplace dress codes. To me, that also makes it ideal for school! It even has an embossed luggage tag, so you can label it nicely and hope that a lovely stranger honestly returns it if you lose it.


Adidas by Stella McCartney Yoga Bag

Adidas by Stella McCartney Yoga Bag Finally, not all of us want to go flat out formal when it comes to workplace bag shapes. This is where Stella McCartney’s yoga bag goes in. If you love to work out before you work, then it is the right bag for you. It has plenty of room for just slinging your kit into, making it nice and casual.

When you are choosing your briefcase alternative, make sure you consider what you need to take to work. As someone who works from home, I don’t need one that often. However, when I need to leave the house I need my laptop for practical purposes, a tablet for entertainment, and my smartphone. Plus a bunch of beauty stuff. What sort of bag do you need to use for work?
