Cutting the amount you carry to work or school could be as easy as switching up the type of bag you use. Kate Spade’s Nylon Calista is right on the mark with using their designer style – their signature nylon and 14-light gold plated hardware – to make the perfect laptop crossbody bag. Yes, you can carry it as a handbag or shoulder bag; that detachable leather strap meets my requirements for a functional everyday bag. And, on top of storing a 15-inch laptop, the bag boasts a middle divider (perfect for storing papers and notes) and two side pockets to hold onto your wallet, flash drive, makeup, you name it! Available for $328 at Kate Spade.
