Six Work Bags Under $100

July 14th, 2009

What do you look for in a work bag?  We look for a bag with it all.  A bag that can take a bit of a beating (or is cheap enough to replace once beaten).  A bag that can hold all your stuff…from your notebook and papers to your laptop and keys.  And of course, a bag with style.  We searched high and low for work bags that fit the bill (and don’t run up your credit card bill).  Here’s our six favorite picks for work bags under $100:

Modena Tote | $28.80 at Forever 21

Reptile Leather Doctor’s Tote | $32.80 at Forever 21

Bucket Detail Shoulder Bag | $47.88 at ASOS

Marc B Plaited Holdall | $94.05 at ASOS

Melie Bianco Patent Bowler | $95 at Piperlime

Melie Bianco Woven Dome Tote | $99 at Piperlime

    I love all the bags! I just got a new work bag today. I busted my shoulder, so I have to use a hand bag or crossover bag (but even that hurts my shoulder after a while. I needed a bag that’s big enough to hold files, but with a short handle that won’t tempt me to put it on my shoulder.

    Luckily, I found a bag at the first shop I looked into that fits the bill! If anyone is in the UK or Ireland, I highly recommend this bag from M&S It’s cute, holds a ton and is not expensive at all!

    I sooo needed this post. I have such trouble choosing an affordable bag that isn’t boring yet goes with many outfits. I love the patent yellow Melie Bianco. It’s not too lemony and just enough goldtone to carry into autumn…literally…

    I bought that F21 bag “inspired by” the Foley+Corina City Tote that you guys posted a month or 2 ago. I love that thing. I’d buy another one if it was still available. You can fit anything in there.
