If you’re often on the go with a lot of essentials, you’ll know the struggle of fitting everything you need into your everyday bag. Perhaps you end up carrying extra items that don’t fit in your handbag, making it harder to multitask whilst out and about, or you try to cram everything you need for your day into your handbag.
One of the most practical things to do when you have a lot to carry around is to choose an appropriate bag which will fit the things you need with ease. This will save you time in the morning, as you won’t have to worry about trying to make your essentials fit into a handbag that is too small. Plus, it will be more comfortable for you to carry a bag that fits everything you need in it.
If you usually carry a laptop and laptop accessories in your handbag, this can take up a lot of room and it can feel like a challenge trying to find the perfect handbag, that is super stylish, but also comfortably fits your laptop, laptop accessories, and all the other things that you need. So, we’ve compiled a guide of the best types of handbags that you can fit a laptop in.
What Types Of Handbags Fit Laptops?
If you’ve struggled with finding the perfect handbag that can fit your laptop in, it may come as a surprise that you can get some amazing fashionable handbags that will easily and conveniently fit everything you need. These include large leather tote bags or handbags with crossbody straps. However, if you aren’t sure what type of handbag is best for you, there are some things to consider.
First, you should consider the size of your handbag. If you need to carry your laptop, laptop accessories, and other daily essentials, such as a lunchbox, water bottle and more, a large tote that sits comfortably on your shoulder is likely to be the perfect option. Whether you are on your way to the office, a library or a study space, we think a spacious and sturdy yet stylish tote bag is a smart pick for a handbag that will fit your laptop in.
However, if you are frequently on the move throughout the day, or you need to multitask on the go, another handy option to carry your laptop is a handbag with a crossbody strap or a detachable long strap. You might enjoy the freedom that comes with a crossbody bag, especially if you venture into busy areas, as you know your handbag will stay secure. If your favourite handbag doesn’t have a bag strap but you would like to transform it into a convenient crossbody bag, you can purchase bag straps in a range of colours and styles to match the aesthetic of your handbag.
What Handbag Should I Get To Carry My Laptop?
One of the first things you should do before purchasing a handbag that fits your laptop is ensure that you know how big your laptop is. Start by finding the measurements of your laptop, and if you plan on packing extra essentials, ensure you factor them in too, to avoid your new handbag being too small.
You can then compare the measurements you need to the measurements of your new handbag. These are our top handbags for carrying your laptop and laptop accessories whilst on the go.

What Should I Do With My Laptop Accessories?
If you travel with different laptop accessories, you might be wondering how to make them easier to transport from one place to another. Especially if you are looking for a handbag with more space to fit your laptop in. We have picked some popular laptop accessories, and the best ways to transport them.
1) Bluetooth Mouse
Sometimes, there is nothing better than having a Bluetooth mouse for your laptop. Especially if you are required to move in between monitors when you arrive at the office, a Bluetooth mouse is the best option for unlimited freedom of movement. However, to save extra space when packing your laptop and your Bluetooth mouse in your handbag, opt for a collapsible mouse, or one that flat packs for travel, for extra space.
2) Wires & USB Cables
You will need to find room in your handbag for your laptop’s charging wire alongside any other wires you carry on a daily basis. Our top tip for packing wires in your handbag is to opt for a zip-up pouch or a new cosmetic or wash bag to ensure that your wires stay in one place securely and don’t get tangled up.
3) Laptop Stand
Laptop stands are a popular laptop accessory due to them being useful for elevating your laptop screen to be at a more convenient angle. If positioned in the right place, a laptop stand can reduce screen glare alongside being movable so you can choose where you want to position your laptop. This is especially useful if you are studying, perhaps in a library or a coffee shop, or doing work somewhere else.
However, if you are going to be carrying your laptop stand in your handbag, it is best to opt for a collapsible one, so it is more convenient to pack in your bag.
Overall, there are stylish and spacious handbags available so that you can pack your laptop and your laptop accessories with ease, whilst elevating your look. If you’ve been struggling to fit your daily essentials into your everyday bag, it might be time to opt for a brand-new handbag that fits everything you need for your day.
