Whether you’re an hour long commuter, working close to home, or working from home, a good work bag is as essential as a good pair of comfortable and stylish work shoes. Work bags can be trickier to choose than other everyday handbags.
For most working women, your handbag must carry all work must haves: laptops, notebooks, chargers, and job-specific equipment. Not everyone has the same work set up though. The work you do may not even involve the work “must haves”. Sometimes we need a work purse that can hold diapers, toys, wet wipes, snacks, a first aid kit and more.
In other cases, we need a bag that does it all! For example, a purse for working moms must have the ability to hold everything from laptops and diapers to notebooks and wet wipes. Furthermore. all work bags must also stow all your everyday essentials that you’d pack in a normal handbag.
When you add it up, that’s a lot of stuff to hold on a day to day basis, and that’s why finding the right work purse is so important!
Work bags for women also have the added challenge of needing to look professional and chic, especially if you work in a business professional environment. An office bag is a working woman’s best friend, so purchasing one is a big decision. If you’re looking for the best work bags for busy moms, entrepreneurs, and all around girl bosses, here are our top picks.
