How does one keep up to date with the latest fashion trends in technology, whether as a student or as a professional? To protect a laptop, a laptop carrying case is handy and essential. Laptop bags now can match the personality of the laptop owner.
While the briefcase style bags are still most popular among people who want to buy laptop bags, there are three notable developments in the laptop bag fashion department that provides owners with enough flexibility to reflect their personalities and lifestyles:
o Portable laptop sleeves or messenger bags perfect for students or individuals who are always on the move
o Bags that also have matching separate laptop sleeves
o Branded laptop bags that double as an equally stylish evening bag
Those students or young professionals in cities who are always on the run have latched themselves on to the trend of portable laptop sleeves that provide users an option of attaching a set of detachable straps provided. These have lightly-padded messenger bags that offer protection without the bulk. Laptop owners can choose to use a separate sleeve on the laptop to provide additional protection. These light laptop bags can also be used as regular everyday bags. Laptop sleeves, originally used on the laptop even when it is placed inside the laptop bag, now come with detachable straps. This allows the owner to flexibly choose to either put the laptop in the laptop sleeve inside the laptop bag, or attach a strap so as to carry the laptop sleeve as a shoulder bag on its own.
Laptop bags that also include matching, separate laptop sleeves have grown more popular today. These laptop bags are often lightly insulated. The removable sleeve that comes with it is also lightly padded to increase protection. Putting the laptop inside the sleeve is enough to have an easy time carrying the laptop as you go from one destination to another without the need for the bulky laptop bag. Moreover, the laptop bag can house the laptop even if it is not encased in the laptop sleeve.
There are alternatives to the laptop briefcase, such as fashionable totes and other bag styles that can provide laptop protection without looking bulky. These laptop totes use stylish designs and materials much like those used in other designer bags. Fine stitching, leather, and even clasps are used, such that these bags double as laptop bags and as fashionable handbags. Messenger and Baby bags from a variety of makers are perfect for this as these are naturally deep and long to suit their original function which lends itself to being a perfect tote for a laptop.
The one advantage you have in finding a bag that works well with you is that the designers probably carry laptops themselves while out and about and have based their designs within the constraints of what is functional.
