Gym bags don’t have to be boring—in fact, they should be just as swanky as their common counterparts: briefcases, weekend bags, and crossbodies. It’s time to ditch the standard nylon duffel bag and cloth drawstring and make way for sleek new options. Haute Living has rounded up the six best workout bags that are bound to impress at the gym, the office or the beach.
Still attached to the classic drawstring gym bag? No worries—Alexander Wang has managed to meld comfort with couture ($695). With neon straps and a deerskin exterior, this drawstring will definitely stand out from the other gym sacks.
Ralph Lauren’s roomy and chic calfskin bag can just as easily fit workout gear as it can swimwear, so take this weekender bag to the Hamptons once you’ve finished your workout ($4,950). Thanks to its rich and vibrant hue, this staple will go with anything.
Kick it old school with Giorgio Armani’s canvas backpack ($1,850). Who said backpacks are just for books?
Simple and spacious (oh, and Yves Saint Laurent, too). Check out this extra large duffel for extra style and extra room for sneakers, a change of clothes, and more ($3,290).
Count on this Gucci shoulder bag for serious workout inspiration ($1,270). Dress it down with running shorts and sneakers or dress it up with a suit and tie.
If “Hermès” weren’t convincing enough, consider the alluring combination of dark denim canvas and black ever calf calfskin silver ($4,250). With adjustable handles, five inside pockets, this bag can’t disappoint.
