When I think of laptop backpacks for women, the first thing that comes to my mind is a boring backpack, usually in a black color that looks like something you’d take with you on your next hike or ski trip. A backpack that is anything but stylish.
Yes, I agree. The ones I’m talking about are also roomy and have many pockets to fit anything your heart desires. However, I like to keep things on the minimal and simplistic side. Practicality is always important, but I like to pick items that also look good.
I’ve been on the hunt for a backpack for a month now, and you’re probably thinking, who takes that long to pick a simple laptop backpack? Well, me. I do.
I am specific about what I want, which is a great thing but makes it difficult to find such particular items on the market. For example, I have a 16in laptop, which is a big issue because most of the stylish laptop backpacks I find fit smaller laptops. I also need a backpack that I can wear with my sneakers, a pair of booties, or even a casual dress. Something that can fit my work essentials but will look good if I go to happy hour with friends after work. Affordable one and good quality. Should I go on?
I decided to compile a list with all backpacks that I found because I can’t be the only person going through pages and pages of different stores online, trying to find a stylish laptop backpack that works for my needs and look good.
Stylish Laptop Backpacks for Women
This backpack was my first choice. I love the square-ish shape, and it comes in so many different colors. It’s a great option to wear with jeans and sneakers or a cute dress when going out for drinks after work. Stylish and functional with enough pockets to fit all necessities. The laptop compartment fits laptops up to 15in, which is why it didn’t work out for my specific needs. In the meantime, I’ll be waiting for Calpak to design a larger size of this same style.
This backpack is a bit on the sportier side, but I think it’s fun. The textured material makes it interesting, and although it says that the laptop sleeve fits laptops up to 15in when you look at the dimensions, it appears that you can easily fit a 16in MacBook pro in it. That’s a win!
This Dagne Dover Neoprene backpack is water-resistant and comes in different colors and different sizes. The medium size fits most laptops up to 13in, while the large size fits most 16in laptops. Based on the reviews, it’s also very roomy and lightweight, which makes it another great option.
This one is very sporty, but I love the clean design, and I can see myself wearing it with jeans, a leather jacket, and booties. It even has a zippered pocket on the bottom, which is perfect for your gym clothes or shoes. The most versatile colors, in my opinion, are dove gray and chocolate.
This Uma Backpack is ideal if you’re looking for a lightweight backpack. It fits a 16in laptop comfortably, and it’s very spacious. It’s a bit on the pricier side, but I’ll consider this an investment, especially if you’re looking to use it daily when commuting or traveling.
I love the color combination of off-white and brown. It’s made of vegan leather, which means it will be easy to clean. It also looks very stylish, and it fits laptops up to 15.6 in.
This is another sportier option, but I have to admit, I like Fjallraven’s products quite a lot. This particular style fits laptops up to 17in, which makes it an ideal size. I like the neutral gray color, but the Ochre is a fun way to add a bit of pop of color to any neutral outfit.
