After what was a truly record-breaking summer, it’s finally time to stash away your straw beach bag and start thinking about a new shoulder bag for work.
Yes, September may mean back to work but that gives you an excuse to invest in some brand-new work outfits, footwear (we’re talking ankle boots
) and accessories – starting with a new handbag. Who says only the kids can enjoy that new term feeling?
We’ve scoured the shops at Union Square for you and hunted through the best work bags and found this gem. Say hello to the Michael Kors Whitney large leather tote: it’s a super-stylish tote handbag, which is also ultra-practical for the office too.
Now’s the time to splash out on an investment piece. And, when it comes to designer bags, there’s no more iconic brand than Michael Kors. Its classic luxe leather styling and subtle hardware detailing will add a polished tick to all your nine ‘til five outfits.
WHAT MAKES IT THE BEST WORK BAG?
But this stylish tote is not just a pretty face. Thanks to its modern bucket shape, it’s roomy enough for your laptop, water bottle, makeup bag and more.
And with 10 – yes, 10 – compartments and zip closure, you can securely store your phone, cash and cards while commuting.
Work bag sorted. You’re welcome.
