Be organized AND stylish with this trendy, convertible tote. Outside pockets keep your essentials within easy reach, and the handbag is large enough to fit your laptop. This bag makes functionality fashionable, not frumpy. Wear this bag with your favorite black suit for important meetings, or with a belted dress and pumps for a business lunch. For a great work look, pair a cropped jacket with a slim-fitting pencil skirt for a modern take on the traditional work suit. Mix colors and textures: try a leather jacket with a soft wool or silk skirt. Team deep red pumps with a rich purple blazer and a gray or black skirt.
