Many people overlook the importance of a stylish work bag, and while it may not get you that promotion, you can count on it to amp up your formal outfit in ways you may never have imagined. Better yet, it can make your work life easier provided it has some of the key features. In essence, the work handbag is an accessory that will contribute to your excellence at the office depending on its reliability.

So, how do you make sure that you go home with the perfect work bag when you go shopping for one? The following guide will help you find the right handbag for your work. Also, be sure to check out the stylish and quality work bags in our collection.

Big is better

The first thing to consider I the size, and thinking big is the best way to go. You want to plan for your loaded days when you will be carrying a lot of things to work, and you don’t want your bag to look like it’s bursting along the seams. To get the right size, pick the work bag that can accommodate your everyday essentials and leave a little more space.

The extra space is for the days when you will be required to carry your laptop and a few documents for the presentations. The Sash & Belle are designed with function in mind, and you can be sure that they’ll work for you and not the other way around.

Stick to Your Style

When you are out shopping for a work bag, it is essential that you don’t neglect your style. You want something that suits you rather than what is considered to be in fashion. The good thing about sticking to your style is not only feeling comfortable when carrying it around but also because it will more likely stand the test of time.

However, if you just landed that job and are not sure you have the whole design and personal style figured out yet, a stylist will be able to help. When it comes to the perfect work handbag, we can help you out with that! The Sash & Belle work handbags are versatile and come with the styling that cuts across the board. They include Belle, Sofia and Imani models.

Go for the neutral colours

The colour of your work bag will have to match the different outfits in your closet especially if you are not planning to switch the bag often during the week. As such, solid, neutral colors like tan, black, brown or burgundy would be the best options to go with. Bright colours are not ideal for formal outfits and if you want to add charm and make your bag stylish, consider using a small scarf and remain professional. The neutral hue doesn’t have to be boring.

Check the interior

Although the exterior of the bag will dictate its style and fashion, the interior is what serves you. So, what will you be carrying to work? How would you like to arrange them? These are the questions to ask yourself when you go shopping. A work handbag whose interior is divided into folder compartments may work best for you depending on what you will be carrying and your preferred arrangement. On the other hand, another person may find it ideal to buy one with an open interior.

Another thing about work bag interiors is the inner lining. Most bags come with a thick lining that does nothing more than add unnecessary weight to your bag. Bearing in mind that you will be carrying many things when going to work, you don’t want to have additional weight on your shoulder in the name of an interior lining. While you will need the inside to look stylish and be durable, it doesn’t have to be too thick.

With the Sash & Belle work bags, you get adequate space in the interior for your documents and other personal items. You will also have an easy time arranging your stuff and remain organised.

Function is paramount

If the handle of the work bag you are checking out cannot fit on your shoulder, then it should have the cross-body strap. The point here is that you should be able to have your bag on your shoulder when juggling several items in your hands. As such, you will have an easy time if you can put your work bag on the shoulder.

Also, your bag should be ideal for carrying a laptop if you need one or have a folder for documents if those are what fill your work handbag. Our work bags were designed with function in mind, and the long top handles can comfortably fit on your shoulder.
