The 5 Best Work Bags For Your Summer Internship, Post Grad, and Beyond

By: Tehila Sole

Marc Jacobs Tote Bag

Congrats! You secured the summer internship, or maybe you’re starting your fancy new corporate job after graduating. Whichever transition you might be going through, it can be tough to put together a professional wardrobe that is cute, functional, and not over your budget. The most important piece of the puzzle is the one that holds it all together or holds everything inside, your work bag. Finding a work bag that holds all the things you need and will last for years can be tough to find, so we put together a list of the top 5 choices sure to make it through everything that comes your way. 

Longchamp Le Pliage 

Longchamp totes are a forever classic. Made in a million colors and patterns from durable nylon, the Le Pliage will get you through the years to come. If the initial price tag scares you a bit, you are also able to find them in amazing condition, secondhand (and they’re sure to be a little more unique that way too!).

A Second Hand Leather Tote

The bag that I currently use is a vintage leather tote. I found it second-hand, in great condition, and it is the perfect bag for what I need. Online, and in stores, there are a multitude of amazing leather totes that you can choose from, both second-hand and from niche brands. The best tip is to find one made of a natural material, like leather, and not synthetics, and it will wear and last for what feels like forever.

Marc Jacobs “The Tote Bag”

If you are like me and carry your entire life with you wherever you go, the Marc Jacobs “Tote Bag” is the perfect bag for you. It fits a laptop, notebooks, and an outfit change, all while looking chic and put together. It also comes with a crossbody shoulder strap for extra comfort. 

The Office Siren Tote

If you have been on the same side of TikTok as me, you have seen everyone styling the Polene Tote bag. While a girl can dream of buying this bag for work, it is probably more suited to buy after your first paycheck comes in the mail. In the meantime, if you want to recreate the look for less, check out the Amazon dupe that gets the job done, for less than a quarter of the price.

Banana Republic Bucket Bag

If you are the functional type when it comes to office attire, the Banana Republic bucket bag is an amazing stylish option. Made from different materials like suede and leather, throw it over the shoulder with everything you need fitting comfortably inside.
