Your workwear wardrobe update: The bag

The bag. The most hardworking of all accessories. Not only does it carry your everyday office essentials, but a statement shopper or a chic cross body can also truly make an outfit.

Blogger Julie of Sincerely Jules has a bag collection to die for, so who better to show us how to rock a workwear staple than her? We are desperate to get our hands on her Goyard bag!

If you are still saving for your Louis Vuitton Neverful, your Celine Trapeze or your Givenchy Antigona (aren’t we all…) then here are a few alternatives.

1. The Mary Poppins Tote

If you are anything like us you pack A LOT into your bag. Laptop, phone, purse, bulging make-up bag, spare shoes, headphones, the list goes on and on. You need a Mary Poppins-esque bag that’s very roomy on the inside, but stylish on the outside. Now you can take all your essentials (all of them) to work with you, even the kitchen sink if you fancy it! These two from Miss Selfridge and Boohoo are THE DREAM – we’ll be snapping both of those up ASAP!

2. The backpack

The backpack has made a stylish return of late. Once a 90s staple, it is now a sartorial statement of off-duty nonchalance. The schoolgirl trend isn’t going anywhere so rest assured that your new backpack won’t be going out of fashion anytime soon. We’re loving these ones from Matt and Nat and Aldo.

3. The work it from work-to-dinner 

Look effortlessly cool when you transition from work to after-work dinner with a small cross-body bag. Blogger Julie shows us exactly how to rock this style. The high street are doing some amazing designer inspired bags at the moment. We’re lusting over these two beauties from Missguided (mega bargain!) and Mango.
