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 Bullring & Grand Central for you and hunted through the best work bags and found this gem. Say hello to the Ted Baker Oellie knotted handle large leather tote bag: it’s a super-stylish tote handbag, which is also ultra-practical for the office too.
Its oh-so-elegant taupe shade, luxe leather and rose gold detailing will add a chic flare to all your nine ‘til five looks.
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.
Three internal pockets and zip closure mean you can securely store your phone, cash and cards while commuting. And thanks to its additional shoulder strap, you can throw it across your body when you’re juggling a coffee and umbrella.
Work bag sorted. You’re welcome.
