Stylish work bags or laptop bags under £100 that aren't black or blue. Where should I look?

Budget up to £100
Must be able to accommodate a 13" laptop plus notebooks/papers etc.
Style wise I need something structured and not oversized.
Colour wise, no black or blue. Think Autumnal colour scheme.

Help please, I'd be forever grateful.

i like this but a bit masculine maybe

Oh nice, the tk maxx near me had a red version of that recently, worth a look.

there's a lovely red one from knomo that i really like but over budget for the moment.

nevergooglenevergoogle Fri 02-Feb-18 21:53:02

i'll check out tkmaxx too

Ooh I have just bought this one for this exact reason. I have the same size laptop as you, it fits in one of the zipped pockets, papers can go in the other one, and then still a load of room in the middle compartment to chuck all your usual work stuff in.

oh my! and a very decent price!

Eminybob Fri 02-Feb-18 22:15:10

I know! I was coveting a very very similar Ted Baker which was well out of my price range when I found this one.
I’ve only had it a couple of days, but took it on a training course today and was very pleased with it smile

i like.

this carvela bag is nice too

nevergooglenevergoogle Mon 05-Feb-18 23:10:04

also available in pink hope it's a dusky pink not a pastel pink.

Mia Tui bags are stalking me on Facebook at the moment, don't know about quality but they do have lovely colours.

TKMAXX Don't have many work bags but they are good ones.

NotMeNoNo Tue 06-Feb-18 00:18:29

Suggest checking Tkmaxx for Paul Costello too, I have a black leather work bag and looks like it's available in tan (Filton bag)

nevergooglenevergoogle Tue 06-Feb-18 14:25:36

Thank you.
I've spent my morning visiting two TKMaxx stores and didn't find anything i really liked.

nevergooglenevergoogle Tue 06-Feb-18 14:47:23

in my mind i want this kind of khaki but this is too small.

nevergooglenevergoogle Wed 07-Feb-18 23:31:23

decision made. i bought two bags, the large grey tote from carvela which isn't very large at all but at a squeeze fits my laptop, AND the khaki slightly smaller one for all my own crap.

they look very smart. thank you.
(Still fancy the red ASOS one but decided to go for neutral colours this time)
