The north-south tote
Bold Leather Tote
Start with a true essential, the North-South tote, and opt for the sumptuously soft leather of Saint Laurent. This bag will outlast all the other handbags in your closet and it has more than enough space for your work necessities.
The knotted shopping bag
The Janessa Leone take on the leather tote bag is tailor-made for minimalists. Knotted straps are the only embellishment its clean exterior needs, along with a discreet brass hook to keep everything safe inside. At twelve inches wide and fourteen inches high, this tote bag can hold your laptop and a change of clothes for the gym without breaking a strap. It’s as chic as a weekend tote.
Cactus leather tote
The cactus leather messenger bag
Some of the best leather totes aren’t actually leather at all. Everlane’s latest work bag uses a prickly pear cactus-derived textile that’s eco-friendly yet no less soft and streamlined. You can find the material in everything from this mid-sized tote bag to a soft triangle tote.
Medium Osa tote
Khaite transforms the classic bucket bag into an elevated work bag in oversized proportions and buttery leather. Don’t hesitate to perch on a corner of your desk where everyone can see it: its round base will prevent it from tipping over, no matter what you store inside.
The Drawstring Tote
Mansur Gavriel has revisited one of his best-known bags to create his latest tote. The inverted shape has the same feel as its best-selling bucket bags, but the drawstring closure creates a whole new look, reminiscent of a blooming flower. While this bag can hold a 13-inch laptop during the workweek, it’s not bulky enough to overwhelm an off-duty spring outfit.
Cage tote bag in leather and canvas
When full leather seems too corporate, try a tote bag that mixes leather with another material, like canvas. This cage tote from Paco Rabanne has all the structure and space you need from a leather tote, but with a more casual look.
The mixed-material tote
Breton striped shopping bag
Embrace a warmer climate with a leather and raffia bag. This tote basket has all the Jane Birkin vibes, with wider dimensions and a sturdy leather strap for you (and your devices) to and from the office.
The compact tote
The little tote
For when you don’t want to think too much about your work bag, here is a functional tote bag in pretty navy blue leather with dimensions adapted to the tightest everyday outfits (computer, charger, phone, wallet). The interior includes two patch pockets and a removable pouch.
The sculptural tote
Mia Leather Tote Bag
Break out square totes with an unexpected shape. Wandler’s Moon Tote represents one of the biggest bag trends of 2022, with all the utilitarian features you need from an extra-large work tote.
Medium black faux leather triangle tote
Another way to experiment with your bags? Try a triangle silhouette. When you’re not carrying it over your shoulder like a work bag, the center handle folds down to become a soft pouch.
The zipped tote
Classic Leather Zipper Tote
Here’s a quintessential leather tote crafted from responsibly sourced leather in six neutral hues. This publisher offers the black version, but I like it so much I would consider buying the olive as well. For workdays, I hop into the separate interior organizer to store my essentials; when I travel, I carry it without the extra compartment.
The quilted tote
Medium GG Marmont tote bag
Classic shapes (the square tote) meet modern touches (the quilted exterior) in this perfect black tote bag. You don’t have to worry about storing your laptop in an extra case either, with the insulated exterior and microfiber suede interior of this bag in your closet.
The logo tote
Small Anagram embossed printed leather tote
Loewe’s striking pattern is the first thing you’ll love about this roomy leather tote bag. Seconds are its doubled handles, so you can alternate between slipping it over your shoulder or swinging it in your hand.
The weekend tote
The NL tote
If you value space above all else, Nili Lotan’s signature tote is for you. It’s one of the biggest totes on our list, but its leather is light as a feather, meaning it can double as both a work bag and a weekender.
The square tote
Shirley leather bag
Staud’s structured leather tote proves it’s pretty cool to be boxy now. Inside, you’ll find a coordinating leather pouch to separate your beauty touch-up tools from your laptop and work notepads. Choose from ten leather shades, ranging from cognac brown to pastel pink.
XL gathered leather tote
This extra large leather bag from Proenza Schouler can carry two laptops, if you need that much space. But the real appeal here is the distinctive crinkled edge. A black leather pouch inside holds your hard-to-track accessories like hair ties and AirPods.
Summer Fridays have been reincarnated as a leather tote. The Gabrielle Bag from Bembien features a single compartment with an interior side pocket to separate your small essentials from your work (or beach) gear. The woven leather exterior looks as casual as you’ll feel packing it in, knowing you’re sure not going to run out of space.
The all-in-one tote
Zipped transport tote
To call Madewell’s Transport Tote a crowd pleaser might be an understatement: the brand sold more than 2,000 last week. It’s all about versatility. The central compartment is so roomy, reviewers have used it as a work bag, travel tote, and even a diaper bag.
The Top-Handle Tote
The long handles of Maxi Montreal
Give your work essentials the royal treatment with a top-handle tote bag from one of Meghan Markle’s favorite brands. The Montreal satchel is all about clean lines and a second of organization, with customizable features including long and short top handles, a removable center compartment and an additional shoulder strap.
The pebbled tote
Coach’s signature grained leather is polished yet durable for everyday carry. Reviewers gave it an average of 4.9/5 stars, with particular praise for features that you can only check out to understand. (Exhibit A: A reviewer says this bag has enough structure that it won’t tip over if she puts it down.) If you want to stand out from other commuters on the train platform, you can personalize the bag with a monogram or an additional leather charm.
