    Just 16 Bags From Target That Are Both Stylish And Useful

    Turns out carrying one of these every day can make a *huge* difference.

    1. A mini square backpack that's begging to be taken on your next adventure. Also, it's the cutest thing ever! Not only does it fit just about everything, but it also has padded shoulder straps to make carrying it around as carefree as possible.

    2. A soft weekender bag because you should *always* have one at the ready for spontaneous vacays or overnights at your friend's place!

    3. A quilted satchel bag to be paired with all your stylish outfits. With gold-toned hardware and a single strap, it'll also stay perfectly in place when you're out so you don't have to worry about losing anything.

    4. A fluffy tote because it'll feel like you're carrying around an über-cozy pillow. Plus, the bag has multiple pockets inside so you can store all your everyday essentials like lip balm, your planner, and a bag of almonds.

    13. A fanny pack so you can remain unencumbered on your city adventures, at music festivals or just during your daily walks with your dog (you can use it to hold poop bags, treats, or other doggie necessities).

    14. A combination tote bag and backpack because sometimes you feel like carrying a tote and sometimes you feel like carrying a backpack. It comes in a variety of colors, patterns and textures and will keep your ID, laptop, credit cards, money, water bottle and punch cards in a secure place on those especially busy days. Plus, its many pockets and organized interior will put an end to digging around in the abyss of your purse for coins or misplaced credit cards!

    15. A striped wood-bead crossbody that's made specifically to hold your phone. Say goodbye to dropping it all the time because now you'll have a designated spot to hold it.

    16. A boho circular shoulder bag that'll make the perfect beach or farmers market companion. Throw in your towel and book or use it to carry home your small assortment of fruits and veggies.
