With gift-giving occasions abound for the incoming college freshman and summer upgrade opportunities luring the seasoned student, there may be one concern plaguing the fashionable student’s mind: “How can I carry around my computer and still look cute?”
Indeed, the sea of bland grey and black laptop bags available at most electronics stores aren’t the most pleasing to the eye... so what is a girl to do? Little does the average college girl know, there are laptop bags to suit every style while still being functional. Whether you’re a traditional girly-girl, a bohemian spirit, or a crisp-and-clean honors student with style -- there is a chic carrying case out there for you.
There are some of us out there who still want to be princesses when we grow up, and these bags are the perfect option. The Golla Dallas pink laptop sleeve is super lightweight and features a detachable shoulder strap for easier portability. Its bright pink color makes it a great option because of its simplicity, as well as the bag’s functionality. The gorgeous Vera Bradley bag is a definite go-to for its variety of floral and paisley designs, among others from the line. The Sherpani Nau bag is a good option for those with small laptops, but it has lots of pockets for your odds and ends. For those who are obsessed with florals, but have a darker side to their sweetness, the Dakine Ella bag is perfect. It’s very roomy and can fit everything you would need with your laptop -- all with style, of course.
Etsy for some of the craziest, funkiest and totally creative laptop cases you’ll find out there. In addition, it’s likely you won’t see a lot of other people carrying the laptop case you purchased from Etsy, which is always a plus! If you often find yourself surfing the web aimlessly at coffee shops, go for the geometric, hipster-chic laptop case from Modcloth. If you’re an indie soul but want something a little different, then look no further than Hadaki Hannah’s wild paisley or Obey’s terrific tribal look to tote your laptop with flair.
There’s something out there for every young woman who wishes to rule out the ugly laptop case. Your laptop is an extremely valuable tool while you’re in college -- not to mention your connection to entertainment and most social media -- and it’s your duty to make sure it gets put in tote-ally awesome case or bag!
