When it comes to conquering the work day, you need a roomy tote. That’s if you’re a normal person and not an Instagram fairy who is able to bend the time-space continuum, shoving her belongings onto a shelf located in the 10th dimension, accessing it via a wormhole that called into existence by whispering the name “Carolina Santo Domingo”. Hashtag #LifeSkillz.

Look, we love the “less is more” philosophy that minimal bags force you to adopt. But when it comes to work, a girl travels with the essentials (wallet, phone, cards, keys), sometimes even a laptop or exercise gear, and food containers (we’re trying to be kind to the environment).

Yes, we recognize that you need something oversized. Our handbag wishlist includes pieces from Loewe, Balenciaga and Roksanda. The looks fit the bill for the career-minded woman, and a designer name means well-made and long-lasting. One last thing — don’t go for boring black. We haven’t, in our list!
