If you love bags, you know you need to have one that is appropriate for every ocasion. Since we’re spending most of our life at work (a bit of a depressing fact), we might as well choose a fab bag to be our trusty companion.
My top requirements in a work bag are:
- to be big enough for my essentials: a laptop, a bigger notebook + a water bottle
- to be somewhat classic looking. For my “work horse” I prefer something timeless
- to be hard wearing. It’s something that we wear 5 times a week, no delicate bags for me, thank you!
Here are my top designer bags that I consider to be perfect for the office:
Coach Swagger Satchel
Coach’s Swagger satchel has been a hit from launch. It comes in many different colors, hardware and sizes. The pebbled leather and classic look makes it the perfect office bag.
Not to mention the affordable price and shoulder strap, does it get any better?
2. Furla Metropolis Satchel
The Furla Metropolis mini cross-body bag has been all the rage this past season. If you like the aesthetic of it, look no further because Furla has an amazing, work-friendly satchel .
The super clean and classic design of this bag makes it look much more expensive than it is and it would make any outfit look 10x more polished.
3. Saint Laurent Sac de Jour
This amazing bag from Saint Laurent is one of my favorites. I can definitely see it as one of the new classics, a bag that can stay in your collection for years to come. The only downside for me is that it is not very secure as it does not have a zipper to close it. It does however has a zippered compartment, so you can keep some of your valuables hidden.
4.Prada Galleria Saffiano Tote
Price: USD 2450, Euro: 1945, get it here
This is probably the bag that I associate the most with “successful business woman” . Could it be Olivia Pope’s fault? It is an iconic bag, very professional and classic and something you really need in your collection. The downsides are the quality issues Prada is facing these days and maybe the overuse of the bag in a professional environment.
5. Céline Belt Bag
Price: USD 2500, Euro: 1850, get it here
The Céline Belt bag is a great alternative to the more traditional work totes. It’s stylish and classic looking with a twist. It also comes in different leathers and in many different colors and most importantly, it can fit a laptop. One known con for this gorgeousness is the closure which many have described as “cumbersome” or “annoying” .
Do you own any of these bags? Let me know what your favorite work bag is, I’d love to know.
