11 Actually Comfortable, Actually Stylish Work Bags

Designed by Kristine Romano.
Whether you've been going into work for the duration of the pandemic or you're just returning to the office, everyone knows the importance of a good work bag. It needs to be big enough to carry the weight of your work gear (laptop, charger, lunch, gym kit...) but not too bulky; comfortable enough that it won't dig into your shoulders but stylish enough not to look like you're off hiking on a Monday morning.
We've scoured the internet for bags that tick each of these boxes. Whether you're more drawn to a tote bag or dedicated to a backpack, there's a range of styles and sizes to suit every type of worker. Click through for our pick of the best.
