Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInspirational Imae

Whether you are sporting a duffle bag to the gym, a clutch for those girls’ night outs or a satchel for the office, the perfect bag truly is a girl’s best friend. And better yet, a stylish handbag can instantly elevate your look, which is why a proper handbag is an investment that every working woman should make. Whether you prefer vintage or a style that is fresh for the season, these are the five handbag trends that the fashion world just can’t get enough of!

1. The Cross body

The Cross-body bag

This is the ultimate bag for the modern, everyday woman. The black Celine Nano cross-body purse provides a touch of elegance, while its structure and strap provide practicality for a woman on the go. If you’re looking to invest in an everyday purse that will go with just about everything, we highly recommend saving up for this must-have cross-body bag.

2. The edgy clutch

The Edgy Clutch

Whether your style is classic or experimental, an edgy clutch is definitely in this season and is the perfect statement accessory to vamp up your look. It’s no surprise that oversized statement clutches have been in the hands’ of fashionistas and bloggers everywhere, as they add an unwavering sense of cool to the otherwise classic clutch style. Rather than carrying a clutch for a night out, use an oversized clutch as your day bag for an instantly edgier look.

3. The hip leather backpack

The Hip Leather Backpack

In our humble opinion, we believe that the clean, minimalist look of a leather backpack is quite sophisticated and gives off a hip street wear vibe. Its comfort level is definitely a ten out of ten and will have you wanting to switch up the handbag for its sensibility and hands-free look.

4. The colourful tote

The Colourful Tote

When we think of tote bags, the first thought that comes to mind is an out-dated tote we use to carry around our groceries. But, in the recent years, chic tote bags have been popping up everywhere and every designer seems to be spinning out their own rendition of the classic carryall bag. For a serious pop of colour, try the Balenciaga patent-leather handbag that has a roomy interior that will hold all of your essential needs.

5. The top handle

The Top Handle

This bag is the epitome of polish with its simple structure and sleek silhouette, which makes it the perfect accessory for meetings at the office. The versatility of having an adjustable strap is perfect for your busy days, while the top-handle sets professionalism to a whole other level. We recommend rocking this trend in an eye-catching hue or adorned with quirky appliqués like this swoon-worthy Prada number.
