The Most Stylish Laptop Bags for Women

  • MORE

Most traditional laptop bags were not built with women in mind. These generic, black, boring, corporate, drone-looking cases offer little or no pizzazz. But that doesn't mean you can't find a supercute, fashion-forward tote that will also give your precious machine the protection it deserves. You simply need to know where to look: here at We've done the digging to bring you the best-looking shoulder bags that offer safety and style in a design you won't be ashamed to carry with you anywhere. 

Kelly Moore Pilot Backpack

While the canvas-clad Kelly Moore Pilot Backpack was designed to haul a DSLR and its accompanying lenses, what good photographer goes anywhere without his or her laptop (up to 15 inches)? The adjustable backpack straps will help ease the load. A large leather flap covers the drawstring top, and the antique brass hardware adds a touch of class.

Hedgren Goal Tote

Available in blue and brown, the Hedgren Goal Tote fits a 14-inch laptop and a 10-inch tablet, and looks great while doing it. The easy look is completed by the two smaller zip pockets on the water-repellent cotton front. Inside, you'll find several small pockets for odds and ends, including one for your smartphone.  

Knomo Mayfair Grosvenor Top Zip Tote

As with every Mayfair piece from Knomo, the Mayfair Grosvenor comes with a special compartment for the Knomo Leaf 5000-mAh battery ($132) for charging your smartphone or tablet. The refined and classy design is aided by the Saffiano-leather trim on top of the lightweight nylon exterior. A 15-inch laptop can sit inconspicuously in a quilted laptop pouch with shockproof protection.

McKlein Francesca

The McKlein Francesca is outfitted in black, faux crocodile. The clean lines exude classic and polished style, and are topped by a metal buckle on the front. The shoulder strap is removable, as is the 16-inch laptop sleeve. The zippered top pocket will keep your things stashed safely away from grabby hands. 

Ogio Hamptons ($65)

Firmly in the super-cute category, the Ogio Hampton's bag with removable belt comes in comes in Black, Red, Terra, Tide or Yellow for a mere $65. A flop-down compartment, cleverly hidden by the buttoned-up front, conceals a dedicated iPad compartment as well as space for pens, business cards, keys and whatnot. On the side sits a quick-access slip for your smartphone, and on the inside you'll find space for up to a 15-inch laptop, a zippered pocket for valuables and a separate space for files or other larger items. Meanwhile, the padded shoulder straps make all-day wear a cinch.

Targus UltraLife Thin Canvas Case ($59.99)

The Targus UltraLife Thin Canvas Case offers a modern, minimalist design in a slim and tapered profile with a pleated front design. This shoulder bag snuggly fits your 14-inch Ultrabook in the middle while the expandable front pocket with magnetic closure gives you the storage you need for on-the-go access to files, newspapers, keys and any number of other items. The exterior is made of soft cotton canvas with durable, leather-like accents while the interior is lined with soft micro-suede to protect against scratches. A discrete and retractable handle offers an alternative to the removeable shoulder. You can choose from black, grey or white for as little as $59.99.

Brooks Mercer Tote

You can pick a red, green, black or white exterior for the luxurious Brooks Mercer Tote, but the inside is lined in yellow to help keys and other small items stand out. A quilted laptop sleeve protects your 15-inch laptop from bumps and bruises. And when you need more space, a zippered compartment concealed on the inside can expand to hold more gear. 

iBagbar Canvas Messenger Bag

Any busy woman will tell you about the joys of a washable bag. The iBagBar Canvas Messenger is made of high-density cotton canvas. Subtle design elements include metal buckles and genuine leather zipper pulls that give it a little something extra. Inside, you'll find a total of nine pockets, including one for a 13-inch laptop. You can choose from gray, black or brown.
