How We Chose the Best Laptop Bags

  • Size: Different sized laptops factor, but also some women might want to fit more than just a laptop and a cable in their laptop bag. A lot of the suggestions below feature extra pockets for items such as a mobile phone, a notebook or a diary, or even roomy enough for a makeup bag or your lunch box.
  • How It Looks: This is an edit of stylish laptop bags, so we wanted to choose the most stylish out there. Whether that’s the colour choice, the material or the shape, we want shoppers to feel chic and trendy en route to the office.
  • Practicality: Ideally, a laptop bag has two handles – one small and one long. We know there are times when you need to carry your laptop around in different ways. It also needs to be compact enough to fit next to your feet on a busy commute or overhead on a train.
  • Safety: Some internal pockets are useful, but making sure your laptop can’t be pinched from its carrier is of utmost importance. We were on the hunt for laptop bags that have the option to conceal the contents inside.

Why you should trust me 

I really wanted to do this feature when I found myself – post pandemic – having to commute from Leamington Spa to the HELLO! offices in London. It’s pretty much two hours door-to-door and lugging around my Apple MacBook just filled me with dread each week. I tried just a regular tote bag from the high-street but it just wasn’t right; it slipped off my shoulder, it flopped to the floor when I placed it down (that was my biggest bugbear) and I knew I needed something a little more serious for my weekly trips to the office. 

As we prepare for our office trips in 2024, here are some great investments… 

The best women’s laptop bags to shop now 

  1. VSNOON Laptop Backpack In Black

    Specifications

    • Weight: 1.82 lbs;
    • Volume: 23L;
    • Size: 17″H x 11.8″L x 7.5″W
    • Primary Material: water resistant and durable polyester fabric

    I’ve chosen this one because the reviews were too good to scoff at, and just look at it! It’s giving me major Chanel vibes – but for a whole lot less. I think this is a multi-function laptop backpack to take note of to be honest. The main area has separated compartments and pockets which can provide roomy space for your laptop (15.6inch) as well as your tablet, power bank, A4 files, wallet, and even clothes (I don’t know about you but I often shove my heels in my laptop bag). It features an elastic pocket at each side so you can hold your umbrella or your water bottle. What’s more, there’s also a USB charging port extended on the side of the backpack and built-in charging cable inside. I think this is pretty genius, especially if your bus or train is delayed and you just want to look at your phone, you needn’t have to worry about it running out of phone battery.

  2. kate spade new york laptop bag for women

    Kate Spade New York Knott Commuter Bag In Black

    Specifications

    • Size: 11″H x 15.75″W x 5″D
    • Primary Material: Pebbled leather Faille and Spade Flower Jacquard linings
    • Fits up to 15″ laptop

    Kate Spade New York often is a go-to destination for work bags and this one is done in soft pebbled leather to withstand scratches. It’s a universal size so it fits all laptops, which means you won’t have to upgrade when you get a bigger or smaller computer. The Kate Spade website has a handy ‘what fits inside’ feature and you can drag items into a virtual bag – things such as a water bottle, a purse, two different sized phones and a card holder. Very clever! If anyone from Kate Spade is reading, you should also add a laptop in the list as well. One happy customer reviewed the bag, writing: “It’s a pretty purse that fits my laptop. It has enough space to fit my other essentials without looking bulky.”

  3. antler laptop bag for women

    ANTLER Chelsea Everyday Backpack In Blush

    Specifications

    • Size: 37cmH x 26cmW x 17cmD
    • Primary Material: Durable nylon water resistant
    • Fits up to 15″ laptop
    • Colours available: Blush, Slate

    I haven’t tried this backpack, but I am a fan of Antler in general and think their products are well made. On the website there are lots of photographs showing how clever this laptop bag is. There are plenty of handy features; a back sleeve that slots over a suitcase handle (again, if you travel with a suitcase, it’s so ideal), a full zip opener for easy packing and access, a zipped front pocket with card sleeve and key clip inside, a 16.5” laptop pocket, and an elasticated side pocket for a water bottle. I love the space for a water bottle, I do think this would be great if you cycle to work and you can hydrate on the go. Oh, and another great feature – inside the backpack, there’s a removable packing pocket for shoes or a change of clothes. Great if you want to store your running shoes or after-work gym kit in there. 

  4. Tory Burch laptop bag

    Tory Burch Perry Triple-Compartment Tote Bag In Black

    Specifications

    • Size: 11.4″H x 14.2″L x 5.3″D
    • Primary Material: Leather
    • Fits up to 13″ laptop

    Tory Burch’s designer laptop bag is called the ‘Perry tote’ and it has pockets for organisation, longer straps that fit comfortably over the shoulder and extra room — with a centre zip compartment that fits a laptop. Made of Italian pebbled leather, it has protective feet and comes with a removable charm, in tonal or contrast colours.

  5. stackers pink blush laptop bag for women

    Stackers Laptop Bag In Blush & Gold

    Specifications

    • Size: 12.4H x 2.6″D x 15.7″W
    • Primary Material: Faux leather and velvet
    • Space for a laptop (up to 15 inch)

    When I was on the hunt for my own laptop bag I couldn’t decide if I wanted a rucksack or a tote bag. I know that rucksacks are brilliant – and perfect for distributing the weight on your body – but sometimes they don’t quite work with your outfit. You can’t wear a linen shirt or a linen blazer to the office and expect to look polished if you’re all crinkled because of the rucksack you’ve been carting in. When I discovered the Stackers laptop bag, I knew I’d found the one. Talk about functionality! This can be worn as a backpack, handbag or a shoulder bag. It’s so ideal. Keep reading to see why I think the Stackers laptop bag deserves to be at the top of this round up.

    This bag is clever and has been well designed for a career woman. With space inside for your laptop (up to 16 inch), your phone, multiple pens, cables as well as a large zipped pocket, this bag is not only stylish but super practical. At the front there is a large zipped pocket for your charger, additional cables and accessories and a smaller zipped compartment at the back. The multi-wear laptop bag is made with a faux leather exterior and a soft velvet padded lining to ensure your laptop stays safe whilst on-the-go. I have the pink and I did worry it would look too babyish (I’m almost 40) but it’s a very muted blush shade. I think the black might have been a better choice as my pink one limits what I can wear with it. I also think it’s a very good price for how well made it is.

  6. away laptop bag for women

    AWAY The Everywhere Bag In Navy

    Specifications

    • Size: 25.9cmH x 41.4cmW x 18.5cmD
    • Primary Material: Water-resistant nylon and leather trim
    • Fits up to 15″ laptop
    • Colours available: Black, Navy, Coast

    I’m a big fan of Away in general, and I have been ever since I tried my first Away suitcase. I wanted to include this laptop bag because it’s new and the brand is known for being top quality. I love a lot of things about this bag; the top zipper will keep your belongings secure, it’s made with water-resistant nylon and leather trim, it fits up to a 15″ laptop and secures to any Away suitcase for a seamless travel experience. Another positive point is that you can put this to the test and make sure it’s right for you and if you don’t like it, you can return it anytime within the first 100 days of purchase. If you want to see it on, check out the picture of the model wearing it with her trench coat – very chic, I think you’ll agree. 

  7. stubble and co backpack

    Stubble&Co The Everyday Backpack In Matcha And All Black

    Specifications

    • Size: 46cmH x 30cmW x 14cmD
    • Primary Material: 600D Recycled PET
    • The body of the bag is made from waterproof materials, the seams have waterproof binding and features water-resistant zips
    • Fits up to 16″ laptop

    This 20l backpack features a compartment that will fit a 16-inch laptop, as well as a spacious organised bag interior. If you’re after a waterproof design as well, this is for you! It also has comfortable straps, and plenty of compartments. The colour selection includes a gorgeous matcha version as well as black and concrete. 

  8. Radley London laptop bag

    Radley London Essex Road Responsible In Black

    Specifications

    • Size: 28cmH x 39cmW x 5.5cmD
    • Primary Material: Grained leather
    • Fits up to 13″ laptop

    Radley London is a class act when it comes to handbags, and if you’re looking for a large laptop bag that looks sophisticated well made, this is the one for you. Perhaps you work in a corporate environment, and you carry your laptop bag to various lunch or dinner meetings and you want your bag to reflect how you style yourself and the way you do business. The Essex Road laptop bag, with its panels of soft grain leather, looks very expensive and is functional, as well.

  9. John Lewis laptop bag

    Specifications

    • Size: 26cmH x 36cmW x 2.5cmD
    • Primary Material: Polyester
    • Fits up to 15″ laptop

    Talk about stylish! Borg is having a cute moment right now and this laptop bag is an affordable way of jumping on the trend. I love a lot of things about this bag and it features a two-way double zip, a padded sleeve for up to 15″ laptops and a soft fleece outside with silver trims.

  10. ted baker laptop bag

    • Size: 40cmH x 28cmW x 28cmD
    • Primary Material: Croc effect leather
    • Fits up to 15″ laptop
    • Colours available: Black

    Made of croc effect leather, the Fabiann laptop bag is highly durable and adds a luxurious touch to your work outfit. The padded pocket holds a 15 inch laptop, while the main compartment can hold all of your papers and daily needs. The best bit? The case comes with a trolley slip, perfect for short haul travel. 

  11. amazon grey laptop bag for women

    Simpolor Laptop Case In Grey

    Specifications

    • Size: 37.9cmH x 30.8cmW x 5.6cmD
    • Primary Material: High-quality waterproof canvas exterior and soft lining interior
    • Fits up to 13.5″ laptop
    • Colours available: Multiple

    I haven’t tried this one but I really wanted to include a laptop bag that had multiple compartments. This would be great for a university student looking for a laptop bag for her lectures. This Simpolor bag (which I found on Amazon) has three compartments to meet all your needs well. The large tech compartment can fit a laptop sized up to a 13.3 inch, as well as your standard iPad. There are three sets of mesh pockets in small, medium and large. All of these pockets allow you to put your daily necessities conveniently inside. I scoured the reviews and they look really good. One happy customer wrote: “Everything works on this bag. It’s a great size, not too big but large enough for everything to fit in neatly. The handles and strap are comfortable for carrying. It somehow feels lighter than my previous bag and I love the padding and all the different pockets.”

  12. aspinal of london laptop bag for women

    Aspinal of London Regent Zipped Tote Bag In Black

    Specifications

    • Size: 11.4″H x 18.1″W x 6.1″D
    • Primary Material: Finest full-grain leather
    • Fits up to 14″ laptop
    • Colours available: Multiple

    I wanted to include a mixture of price points in this roundup of the best laptop bags for women, as it’s only fair. When I think of trusted British bag brands I always think of Aspinal of London – one of Princess Kate’s favourite bag brands – and this one looks perfect for the office (and beyond). Extremely elegant looking, the Zipped Regent Tote is the perfect companion for your work-to-weekend wardrobe. Handcrafted from full-grain leather, the semi-structured and lightweight design has a spacious interior with the capacity to hold a lightweight 14-inch laptop along with an open slip pocket for your valuables and two mobile slip pockets. I think this would suit a fashionista who likes a designer bag and wouldn’t be seen dead wearing a £30 Amazon one. The best thing about this bag is the zip-top closure which will keep your belongings secure, while the long shoulder straps ensure all-day comfort for a trip to the office.

  13. wat the brand laptop bag for women

    WAT THE BRAND Vegan Leather Shopping Tote Bag In Black

    Specifications

    • Size: 41cmH x 32cmW x 12cmD
    • Primary Material: Vegan leather
    • Fits up to 13.5″ laptop
    • Colours available: Black

    This is the laptop bag for all the fashionistas out there. You might prefer style over a dedicated compartment for your phone charger, and that’s totally ok. In fact, if my commute wasn’t so long, this is probably the bag I’d choose. The carryall tote is made from vegan leather, it’s lined in cotton, and is ideal if you’re after a chic laptop bag. Inside, you can hold everything from your laptop to your water bottle! There’s also a matching WAT vegan clutch. I will say that you can only carry this as a tote, there’s no strap for the shoulder so just bear this in mind if you decide to purchase. Having ordered from the WAT many times I can say that the customer service is brilliant and delivery is speedy, too. 

  14. Mulburry navy laptop bag

    Mulberry City Briefcase In Sapphire Heavy Grain

    Specifications

    • Size: 32cmH x 41cmW x 7cmD
    • Primary Material: Heavy grain leather
    • Fits up to 13.5″ laptop
    • Colours available: Sapphire, Chestnut

    I deliberated whether to include this laptop bag as all the options available were modelled on men and I wanted more from Mulberry. I love this brand, and I own many Mulberry bags, but they need to bring out some amazing laptop bags for women (or ultimately style them on women). The one I’ve chosen, regardless of it being styled by a male model, is very much unisex in its design. It only has one main zip compartment and one internal zip pocket, but there is one external slip pocket at the back.

  15. demellier laptop bag for women

    DeMellier The Vancouver Tote In Black

    Specifications

    • Size: 13.7″H x 12.9″W x 5.1″D
    • Primary Material: Soft, small grain cowhide leather
    • Fits up to 13″ laptop

    Both Princess Kate and Meghan Markle are big fans of DeMellier handbags and we think this new Vancouver Tote could be on their wish-list. Isn’t it just so unbelievably chic? Available in four different colours, this bag is going to be your new favourite. The iconic magnetic double-bar gold-plated lock is both a statement piece and practical fastening for the bag. It fits a 13” laptop and other work essentials – making it an ideal carry-all tote. You can wear this over the shoulder, in the crook of your arm, or in your hand with the leather handles. Lined with sustainably sourced cotton, the interior is spacious and neatly arranged with two slip pockets and a zip pocket ideal for a purse and iPhone 14 Pro Max. 

  16. green cambridge satchel company laptop bag for women

    • Size: 30.5cmH x 38.5cmW x 7.5cmD
    • Primary Material: Leather
    • Fits up to 15″ laptop
    • Colours available: Multiple

    The Cambridge Satchel Company’s leather bags are legendary for being durable and comfortable to carry. I own a couple of Cambridge Satchel bags I bought over 10 years ago and they still look good today, so I’m confident this would be a good choice for a laptop bag. The Music Shoulder Bag is large enough to fit a 15inch laptop and with the brand’s distinctive bar closure, which slips over its single top handle to secure the front flap, it’ll keep your laptop safe. Along with a choice of seven colours, you can also have the bag personalised with your initials for a small cost. I love that. Would also make a great graduation gift.

    • Primary Material: 100% Polyamide
    • Fits up to 15″ laptop
    • Colours available: Rose Black

    Kipling has smashed it out of the park with a bag that features the following: Multiple compartments, a bottle holder, a trolley sleeve, a laptop compartment, a key fob and an adjustable strap length. I love that it’s zipped, making sure your laptop is secure inside. With a handy removable pouch, a trolley sleeve and adjustable straps, you’ll be commute ready in no time. It’s also perfectly designed for cabin storage.

  18. Accessorize laptop bag for women

    Specifications

    • Size: 29cmW x 35cmL
    • Primary Material: Polyurethane (PU) 
    • Fits up to 13″ laptop
    • Colours available: Black

    Accessorize really is a great place to shop for every handbag emergency isn’t it? Need a beach bag? Accessorize. Need a last minute glam clutch? Accessorize! Need a practical laptop bag for the office? They’ve got you. An extremely trusted brand, so I think this £42 timeless backpack is the perfect workwear staple – and it will come in so handy for travelling, too. I’ve not tried this one or felt the quality but from the pictures on the website, it looks really stylish.  

  19. longchamp laptop bag for women

    Longchamp LePliage Green S Briefcase In Black

    • Size: 28cmH x 37cmW x 8cmD
    • Primary Material: Cowhide leather
    • Fits up to 13″ laptop
    • Colours available: Multiple

    Ok, I’m fascinated by this one. Look at how light it looks! This Longchamp document holder features a simple and classic style and if you’re already in the Longchamp fan club, you’ll no doubt be smitten. Designed to hold all of your documents, it can be folded up when not being used. According to the website, Longchamp drew its inspiration from origami when creating Le Pliage, a light, foldaway bag that has since become a cult object worldwide. It’s USP? Light as a feather, folds away to the size of a paperback, and is durable enough to keep all your essentials close to hand.

  20. etsy personalised laptop bag for women

    • Primary Material: Polyster, PU leather
    • Fits up to 14″ laptop
    • Colours available: Pink, Blue, Beige

    Ok, I’m a sucker for personalisation and I think that’s why I love Etsy so much (and I like supporting small businesses). I wanted to show you this laptop bag because it’s just adorable and, if you’re anything like me, things with your name on just sparks joy. It comes in different colours and different sizes. I scoured the reviews on Etsy and my favourite one was this: “The best communication I’ve ever had from a seller, amazing! The product itself is even better!” Isn’t that lovely? I think this would make a great gift for a teenage girl who’s off to school or university or her first job. Hell, I’m nearly 40 and I want it.
