It’s almost back-to-school season, and with September in the air, we’re looking to hone our wardrobes in favour of a more practical, professional style to send us back to work with.
We’ve stocked up on our favourite button down shirts, and found some brilliant tailoring from our favourite high street brands. Now, it’s time to turn out attention towards accessories.
When assembling a workwear wardrobe, there is probably no item quite as important as the perfect large black handbag. For a daily run to and from the office, your bag should be big enough to carry a laptop, charger, notepad, glasses (prescription and sun), a snack or two and your makeup must-haves—and that’s packing modestly. If you’re anything like me, your big black bag quickly reaches capacity with an ungodly amount of non-negotiables, so I must argue that the bigger your bag is, the better. Me? I managed to find my perfect large black handbag thanks to the plethora of secondhand designer styles that abound on the likes of eBay and Vestiaire Collective. But if you’re looking for brand spanking new, this kind of classic style is always delivered in droves.
