“I travel a lot for work,” writes a reader named Heather, “and I’m desperately searching for a nice looking carry-on bag that will also transition to being a work bag when I arrive. Here’s the big hitch—I really want a bag that can slip over a rolling suitcase. I’m having an impossible time finding an option that doesn’t make me look like a stodgy businessman. I’m fine with it being tote shaped or even a backpack, just want a reasonably stylish option!” I’m thinking that what you want here, Heather, is a bag that will sit upright on top of your carry-on (I’m certain you will all let me know if there’s another feasible interpretation here) with the straps looped over the suitcase’s handle. So I’ve included the following.
Everlane’s Form Bag was just introduced recently (I showed it to you back then in the green, which is now backordered) and I think it’s perfect for travel—not too big, but big enough to fit an ample amount of stuff.
