The Anatomy of The Perfect Back-To-Work Bag

When the post-holiday blues run rampant, a little bit of back-to-work shopping can be quite the cure. On the top of that list? Your new work bag.
|

How is the first few days of the year treating you? A little “ehhh”? Still having those holiday season withdrawal symptoms? Yeah, we feel you. Unfortunately, while brain might still be popping poppers and sipping bubbly, life still goes on and work isn’t going to magically clear itself. While the back-to-work blues are inevitable, there are ways to make things feel just a teeny tiny bit better.

You know how way back when first days of school mattered? They were simultaneously miserable and exciting, because while it signalled the end of the holidays and the start of work, it also meant you got to show off your new duds. We’re not in school anymore, but the same sitch applies. New year, new office gear, new back-to-work bag.

Not any bag will do, of course. Careful consideration needs to be done if this bag is going to rough it out with you for the rest of the year. It has got to be spacious, possibly large enough to fit your MacBook or at least an iPad, and it has to be able to hold the weight, so no skinny straps. Bonus if there is more than one way to carry it. If you look into it, you should be able to see where everything is at once, like a doctor’s bag. While we love colour, this bag is going to be used on the daily, so practical colours are reasonably necessary. Think about versatility, too.

Finally, it has to look polished. Practical, but polished. That means shiny leather or clean suede. And, sure – sleek, office-approved backpacks exist, so your aching dominant shoulder doesn’t have to cry anymore. Pick your new work bag below and feel those back-to-work blues dissipate by the minute.
