Sadly, we’re living in an era where we can’t be separated from technology for a long period of time without having mini panic attacks. We’re connected 24/7 either through our phones, computers, iWatches, or tablets. Even though some of these devices are very light and easy to carry around, others can be quite a burden (laptops, we’re looking at you). Dragging along our laptops has now become a part of our daily commute. Picture this: a medium-sized bag with our daily necessities — makeup, phone, keys, notebook — and an extra tote bag where we can fit the computer and the charger. Add a to-go coffee to that combo and we have a big problem. How do we manage to move around the city with so many things? This brings us to today’s story…
Lugging around heavy laptops can lead to back issues if not transported properly, so for that reason, we’ve decided to do some research and find the best laptop-approved backpacks that will simplify your life. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about bulky, unflattering backpacks (JanSport, you forever have a sweet spot in our hearts, but you didn’t make the cut). Instead, picture practical yet fashionable pieces that will also upgrade your look. Let’s do some shopping…
Perfect size, versatile, with punk band vibes. This Marc Jacobs black canvas backpack is the perfect accessory to wear on a daily basis. You can easily carry your Macbook 13” or 15” in it, too. You’re welcome.
Eco-friendly backpack with drawstring-cinched silhouette and flap closure. This is definitely a must-have, not only for its sleek and chic design, but also for the affordable price ($59!!). Thank you Urban Outfitters for saving our wallets yet again…
Yes, we know you’ve seen this Fjallraven backpack everywhere, but we can’t deny it’s a classic and it’s really cool. Designed in 1978 and still just as relevant today, give your outfit a pop of color with this fun (and practical) accessory.
Eco-friendly brand Matt & Nat has mastered the art of ethical (yet chic) bag making. This backpack is as comfortable as it gets: padded straps, extra grab handles, and inner zip pockets. We assure you your laptop will feel super cozy in here.
If you’re into colors and emojis (raises hands proudly), you might be looking for a more fun and vibrant backpack. Well, that’s why Anya Hindmarch made it to our list. This BOOM! backpack has been designed with comfort in mind, featuring padded straps and a pocket that’s big enough for an iPad. Pretty clever, eh?
Who knew the coolest brand of sunglasses made equally amazing leather goods? Yes, you heard right. Illesteva’s Jake Cognac backpack is perfect for work. Why? It has a zipped main compartment, laptop snapped section, iPhone holder, key clasp, and pen holder. A round of applause for the design team and their attention to detail (we’re only missing a special pocket for our pizza slice… just saying).
Calling all minimalists: this bag is what you’re looking for. Styled in refined leather, Shopbop offers this backpack with rolled top handle and adjustable shoulder straps. Super cute and super versatile, we’re loving this easy carry-all.
All your backpack dreams came together into this Mansur Gavriel piece. An italian calf leather bag in royal blue, with an interior zip pocket and adjustable straps. Io ti amo *to be read in Italian accent*.
