The Laptop-Friendly Tote That Won't Make You Look Like a Schlub

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked National associate editor Kenzie Bryant.

Madewell double-handle tote, $88 at

One of the hard facts about fashion blogging is that your laptop will insist on being your plus one to post-work events. So it's important that the bag in which you cart it around is (a) sturdy, (b) functional in a work environment as well as a cocktail hour environment, and (c) not embarrassing to yourself, the company you represent, and potentially the family that raised you better than to carry some ratty old tote. I do not have one of those bags. I would very much like to have one.

This double-handle Madewell tote in canvas is a top contender these days. It's simple, roomy, and light enough to go with most warm-weather outfits. Plus, it's not painfully expensive, so I won't have to be precious about schlepping around my laptop lifeline.
