Carrying your papers, laptop and phone in a briefcase may be professional in the working world, but they are often oversized and clunky. Instead, you may want to opt for a work tote.
A work tote is more than a big purse. They are tote bags that look professional, while still looking stylish. You can carry your laptop, phone, files and folders, and everything else that’s traditionally in a purse, like a wallet or planner.
That’s not to say work totes can’t be cute and trendy. They can! And all while getting important jobs done.
