When it comes to a handbag for the office, you want something that exudes professionalism. Now that may sound like a tall order, but it’s actually surprisingly easy to find. Primarily what you want to look for is a bag with great structure. Just like a structured dress or blazer, a structured handbag has an air of sophistication that will always be in style for the office.
A great handbag can really amp up an office look; think of pairing your everyday white blouse & black trousers look with a professionally bold cobalt bag, or that little white dress with a structured bright floral handbag – it’s an easy way to take an office look from plain Jane to bright Betty.
