The Best Non-Tote Carry-Alls For Work

There's no wardrobe fatigue quite like that induced by workwear. As much as we love the ease of a shirtdress or the don't-think-about-it-just-pack-it convenience of the seemingly bottomless carry-all, sometimes it's hard to distinguish our Tuesday outfit from our Thursday ensemble. That's why we cherish simple, HR-approved closet swaps that can be effortlessly incorporated into our existing routine, but still feel different and special. And, today, that starts with our work bag.

One misconception we'll do away with right now: Not all good work bags are totes. In fact, there are many bag silhouettes worth your attention and investment: the classic top-handle, the ever-versatile cross body, and the oversize clutch, to name a few. So, ditch the shopper, and give your 9-to-5 look a refresh with one of the beautiful bags ahead.
