Squared elegance. Incorporate a luxe handbag into your workwear without shelling out at a designer price. Its sleek-chic silhouette is a must when it comes to a working woman’s handbag. You can pick up this stylish satchel for just $165 (comparable to $399) either in grey black or wine black!
There are plenty of quilted handbags out there but not very often will you come across a quilted satchel in a gorgeous creamy (or nude) patent finish. The look is just what you’d expect from this DKNY Quilted Patent Shopper Bag – chic & elegant.
Its sensible size and removable shoulder strap make it the ideal bag for your daily commute. Also fashioned with a spacious interior, several pockets and a zip-top closure to help you stay organized - it’s a handbag that you’ll reach for often. Oh did I mention the convenient zipped side pocket (perfect little spot for your cell)?
I prefer to carry as a top handle to up the chic factor… then again, a long strap comes in handy while I shop. Available from Bank Fashion for $160 (with $8 delivery fee to USA).
With the new season fast approaching it’s definitely time for an “Autumn” handbag. Longchamp’s Roseau Box Tote combines clean lines with a sleek, high gloss finish. The medium size (shown) is perfect as an everyday bag – in Aubergine that screams autumn! Wear this everywhere with everything from jeans and blouse to an office suit. Check out more colors here.
Simple elegance is forever. I absolutely love the simple-modern style of this Sac de Jour tote by Saint Laurent. With its clean lines and a sleek silhouette, the bag is a perfect piece to add a timeless appeal for both business and after-work appointments.
It features a roomy design and buttery suede lining to carry it all in style – this season & beyond! The only difficult decision here is which color to choose. There is a nice selection of colors including the popular black, beige and red below. You can’t go wrong with any color due to the impeccable design. The bag retails for the eye-watering price of $2000 + (depending on the size & material).
My favorite is gray. Gray captivates the imagination of all things cool, sophisticated and versatile – like this handbag. The navy blue is next in line for my color picks. I find the smaller size is just perfect for an everyday commute.
What do you think of the SL Sac de Jour carryall? Better than the Birkin bag? I say YES all the way.
An end to my search for the perfect smart/stylish tote – Tumi Carlisle Lucca City Tote is a top-notch bag for work and travel. Invest in this bag and it’s enduring style will make you smile on a daily basis, year after year.
Can a bag accommodate both the iPad & a laptop? You bet! This tote has a designated pocket for iPad as well as a removable sleeve for a laptop. Now that is something to boast about! Plus, plenty of room and more pockets to store all other essentials. The off white (bone) color is refreshing year-round with the classic rectangle shape that pairs equally well with jeans and a sheath dress. Truly effortless.
