Carrying your lunch never looked so stylish! Long gone are the days of brown paper bags, Ziploc bags or metal lunchboxes. A few designers have created fabulous lunch bags for hauling your sandwiches, veggies and snacks. This must-have accessory is not only fashionable but functional. Read on to see more of these chic bags that are perfect for toting your packed lunch in style.
This Jil Sander bag is in the classic shape of a folded lunch bag. But unlike the old-fashioned brown paper bag, this one is leather with gold details. The bag retails for $630, but unfortunately, it’s already sold out. And it’s not hard to see why. Great for fall, this carryall is so sophisticated you might not want to spill any of your food or drinks on the premium leather. Yet, it still looks better than a dull paper or plastic bag.
French leather accessories designer Marie Turnor has caught the attention of fashionistas with her beautiful lunch bags appropriately named for several dining occasions like “The Picnic,” “The Snak” and “The Dinner.” Made of leather and paper bag rolling mechanisms and invisible magnets, the lunch bag-inspired accessory ranges from $115 to $295 and some come in tan, white, red and black and two sizes.
As shown above, the mini version or “The Snak” also comes in metallic silver, gold, and tan with foil and eyelet details. And that’s not the best part. The bags have another stylish function. When you’re done with your lunch, you can use the bags as clutches to match your fashionable outfit for a night out on the town.
This is what we like to call keeping it classy and nutritional. These Juicy Couture lunch bags are $48 for the entire set of three and you can switch them up every few days to color coordinate with your wardrobe. With the vintage Juicy Couture logo on the front in a variety of colors such as pink, yellow and blue, these bags are stylish and chic for working moms at the office and adorable enough for kids. They’re also eco-friendly and available in bold blue, pink and purple hues with a unique sack-inspired shape and a fold-over top.
The Rachel Comey “Rally” bag mimics the insulated lunch bags all of us have carried at least once. But this one gets a style update from our cafeteria days and includes a soft suede surface and a rose gold bar detail. For $550, you can carry the “Rally” bag vertically, but it can also serve as a clutch to be carried sideways with a horizontal zipper. And not to mention it’s fully lined to keep your food fresh and warm.
And if you’re not thrilled by the idea of carrying food in such a luxe accessory, you may still be in need for something to hold your lunch money. The Rebecca Minkoff lunch money pouch comes in bone color with gold text on the front and a zip closure. And it’s only $55. Stylish, affordable and practical, this pouch is perfect for going out and grabbing lunch without toting a big satchel, handbag or wallet.
Do you think the new designer lunch bag trend is functional or sensible? How would you make the bags work with your work or school wardrobe?
