Although an everyday tote bag is a practical piece that comes in handy whether you’re going on a grocery run or need a little extra room for a laptop, there is something good about a smaller bag that holds exactly what you need and nothing more. Shoulder bags offer a variety of styles and features to fit your needs. From a smaller bag that forces us to pack light and live with the consequences to a little more spacious one that could be a work bag, we have brought together six shoulder bags that are perfect for all occasions—work, travel, play, and beyond.
Whether traveling to the office or on a casual trip, this over-shoulder travel bag offers built-in organization to store everything you need whatever the day throws your way. The bag is made from oxford, which is waterproof, scratch-resistant, and easy to clean. It is available in six colors. Snag the one you can’t wait to fill up now!
