Does your briefcase add that extra bit of sass to your look? If it doesn’t, think again. Confident, chic, creative and sophisticated women shouldn’t be carrying boring black canvas laptop bags sold at office supply stores. If you mean business – make sure that your briefcase also reflects your own personal style.

Whether you are classic, funky, artistic, trendy, bohemian or retro – there’s a briefcase or laptop bag out there that’s perfectly stylish for you. An oversized, long and lean tote might also do the trick if you need to stow away books and papers instead of a laptop. You might even find a fabulous messenger bag to hold your professional daily stash if you work in a more casual setting. With today’s range of options, your stylish briefcase might double as your handbag during work hours.

The best assortments of briefcases are usually found online. Try sites like LeatherTree, LuggageOnline, BagsBuy and eBags. Brands like Coach and department stores like Nordstrom also have good online selections.
