It can be difficult figuring out what to wear to wear to work on a hot summer morning, especially if you're pressed for time. The easiest solution? Your work dresses with the addition of a bright tote to give your look a lift. Trade in your everyday black or mahogany brown in favor of a bright marigold yellow carryall for an instant pop of color or a subdued pastel style for subdued sophistication. The key to keeping it workplace-friendly is to offset the fun shade with a structured silhouette.

We get it, though—​it's hard to justify shelling a ton of money for a colorful tote that won't give you the versatility or timelessness as black. That's why we scouted the market and rounded up a selection of vibrant office-appropriate bags that all ring in under $250. You're welcome.
