Stylish Backpack from Work to Evening

I am looking for a backpack that is big enough for a laptop (15”) but chic enough to wear to drinks or an art opening in Chelsea after work. I’m also hoping it will look good with my winter coat…a black cocoon one from J.Crew last year. I’d be willing to spend up to $500. Thanks!”

Who says a backpack can't be stylish! These options offer a variety of flavors, colors, and versatility. As backpacks tend to do it allows you to carry more and place it right on your back or over one shoulder and go. You can wear either of these bags with many different outfits. These backpacks can easily transform from a daytime/everyday casual look to hanging with friends after work hours and perhaps carry on the weekends!”

Thanks Elishia! I love the Leather Faux Pony and weave backpack. The others are adorable too but way too small for my laptop! Such a challenge to find something that fits. I think I might try the Leather Faux Pony one though…. love that print.

You’re welcome! That’s true it might be a little snug for your laptop, but I think the ASOS with the prints you like might work. I love the print as well! Hope you find a great bag that suits what you are looking for.
