All you #girlbosses out there know how important your work bag is to your daily routine. At the very least, it carries the heels you wear around the office, a laptop, an assortment of makeup, and, of course, the essentials: your keys, cards, and cash. Still, despite its luggage-like qualities, your work carry-on needs to project polish, so we prefer the tote style (sorry, backpacks).
A tote bag is big enough to hold the above said items, but you also won't feel embarrassed taking it into an important lunch meeting. With that in mind, we scoured the market for 12 work tote bags that will help you ace the job you have, and possibly get the job you want!
Talk about the best bang for your buck. This is 50 bucks you won't mind spending.
