15 Cute Laptop Bags That Are More Chic Than a Backpack

It's time to switch it up.

Design By Morgan McMullen

Listen, I have nothing against backpacks, but if I want to go to an event straight from the office without looking like I just came from homeroom (does this exist anymore?), I'm going to need a sturdy bag to carry my laptop that doesn't, uh, actually look like a laptop bag. Thanks to these gorgeous tote, crossbody, and shoulder bags that fit either a 13- or 15-inch laptop, ahead, I can do just that.

The Form Bag

Every time I arrive at my desk with my Everlane Form Bag, my co-workers are shocked that I whip out my entire laptop from inside of it. A snug fit means it's safely secured during my commute, and the gorgeous Italian leather exterior allows me to take it to events after work without it looking like an actual work bag. Ten out of 10 recommend.
