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 Brent Cross for you and hunted through the best work bags and found this gem. Say hello to the M&S faux leather reversible shopper bag: it’s a super-stylish tote handbag, which is also ultra-practical for the office too.
Its eye-catching ochre shade will give a welcome splash of colour to all your nine ‘til five looks. And as its reversible, if your outfit demands some metallic arm candy, you can quickly flip it to on-trend silver.
WHAT MAKES IT THE BEST WORK BAG?
But this stylish tote is not just a pretty face. It’s roomy enough for your laptop, water bottle, makeup bag and more.
The thick strap ensures it’ll be comfy to wear on your shoulder even if it’s packed up and ultra-heavy.
Plus you’ll find a small detachable bag within, with a handy wrist strap. Use it to securely store your phone, cash and cards while commuting. Heading on a night out? Ditch the tote and use it as a stylish clutch.
Work bag sorted. You’re welcome.
