Girls, whether you’re going from barre class to the bar, CrossFit to corporate meeting, or Pilates reformer to the farmer’s market, you need a cool gym bag that’s versatile enough to go the distance with you. This chic round-up of carry-alls won’t leave you empty-handed — or running empty on style. Check out these five gym bags that fit any budget.
1. Transcience Yoga Bag
For a bag that speaks to your inner yogi and artist, look no further than the Transcience Yoga Bag ($275). The black neoprene stunner features Italian lambskin details and a black nylon lining along with a detachable drawstring shoe bag and a hanging strap for the yoga mat. But, what we’re head-over-heels for is the gorgeous shaping of the bag.
2. Clava Three Gym Bag
This quilted nylon beauty from Clava caught our eye for its sporty and chic aesthetic — plus you can even personalize it with your initials. The Three Gym Bag ($160) certainly has more than three ways to be used (think gym time, travel carry-on, weekend hold-all, diaper bag, and more!). While it’s large, it is also lightweight. Four drop pockets inside can hold everything from water bottles to an iPad, and a removable pouchette can be carried as a grab-and-go handbag for last-minute essentials at the gym. It also comes in black and navy.
3. Charli Cohen Dressed to Kale Tote
We love a good tote to just toss everything in at the last minute. And this Charli Cohen gem ($95) makes us smile — after all, you know we had to go there with the cheeky wordplay. But, with this vegan leather charmer, you truly will be “dressed to kale.” And, the nice thing is that the lettering is embossed here in this monochromatic black bag, so the wordplay effect is more subtle but no less statement-making.
4. Fred Perry Classic Barrel Bag
It’s technically a men’s bag, but we can see plenty of women rocking this Fred Perry Classic Barrel Bag ($90). It truly is a classic, designed in a series of sleek colorways, with a double zip at the top, outer slip pocket, inner zip pocket, and a large zipped compartment at one end. Finished with shiny nickel hardware and gold debossed branding, this one will make any sweat session look more sophisticated.
5. Athleta Mesh Yoga Mat Tote
If you’re the ultimate yogi (and minimalist) and truly just need a bag to bring your mat to your next practice, Athleta has the one for you. The brand’s mesh yoga mat tote ($48) comes in a brilliant shade of silver metallic. Plus, it does have an external pocket for any of those essentials.
