We love versatile styles — pieces that can pull their weight during the work week and fit in flawlessly on a night out with friends. And the same goes for GIFs. These little looping images are the perfect way to add panache to an email or text thread, but what if you don’t want to sweat the storage space to save a gazillion GIFs for every occasion? Focus on ones that do double duty! We found GIFs to suit some familiar work and play scenarios — check ’em out, and share your fave reaction GIFs (and the moments they capture) in the comments below!
