It's a great way to make leftovers more appetizing!

No matter what we do for a living, there's one universal question that we all ask: What's for lunch? Sure, you can run out and grab something really fast, but the most budget-friendly option (and often the healthier option, too!) is to pack your own lunch each day. But if the thought of carrying your leftovers in a dreary ol' plastic bag makes it feel like an unappetizing chore, may we suggest getting a cute bag to tote along with you? These are some of the most stylish lunch bags for women out there right now.

Of course, lunch bags serve more of a purpose than just looking nice. They are reusable, which is better for the environment. Plus, most of them can carry quite a few items. You can pack a main meal in a food storage container, plus a drink and perhaps a few healthy snacks for throughout the day. And most importantly, all the picks here are also insulated. That means you can keep your food warm if there's no way or time to reheat at work or keep it cold when it’s not in a refrigerator. (That's super important for food safety!)

And naturally, with a go-to bag to grab, you don’t just need to tote it to work. You can always take it on a picnic, when you go camping, or to your next tailgate, too. Whether you’re looking for something small and affordable, large and in charge to last you throughout the day, or something super stylish that will keep you motivated to bring all your meal prep recipes, we've got you covered!

You can thank Ree Drummond for this pretty and super useful set. It includes a large lunch tote, small accessory bag, aluminum water bottle, and matching ice pack. If you have a lot to carry, it might as well match!

There's a lot we love about this option beyond the adorable print options. It has a zipper closure to keep food secure and cooler for longer, an interior mesh pocket to fit an ice pack, and an exterior pocket to stash napkins and utensils.

Do you love lots of pretty options? We do, too. Click on over to see the selection but stay for the durable handles, secure zipper, and insulated interior that holds food for up to six hours without refrigeration.

For under $10, you get a lightweight, foldable yet insulated tote that can easily fit a few stacked containers. It has a wide mouth opening and a velcro closure for easy packing and unpacking. Check out the dozens of fun print options!

If you like the idea of having a lot of space but want something more colorful, try this large capacity option! It has two large separated interior compartments, several outside compartments as well and a shoulder strap. Need a visual of how much it can hold? Think 16 soda cans!

If you like the look of an old school paper bag, we found an excellent reusable and water resistant replacement! It has a secure snap closure, a durable handle, enough space to fit six water bottles, and a spork included. Opt for a fun message or get a plain one!

Want something super chic? This Vera Bradley is a little more money, but boy, you'll love it! It has a large capacity and comfortable shoulder strap, an extra mesh side pocket for more storage, and of course, Vera's signature quilted padding and pretty prints.

It may not be the boldest choice, but what it lacks in character it makes up for with utility. The spacious interior (think: 12 soda cans!) is split into two compartments so you can divide up your treats how you see fit. Plus it is waterproof, has an extra exterior pocket, and a comfortable shoulder strap.

Want some flexibility in how much you carry? Consider an option that expands. Just unzip the side and you get an extra two inches of space! It has has an internal mesh pocket to fit an ice pack.

For more of a hard lunch box look, try Hydro Flask. Two layers of insulation keep your food extra cold, plus there's a mesh pocket for an ice pack. The capacity could easily fit a large lunch or try the smaller size if you have less to carry.
