Reading time: 3 minutes
We all need to carry our belongs every morning to the office. However, grabbing any random purse or school bag is no longer appropriate for a young professional.
Carrying the right type of bag indicates your transition from student, to career driven individual.
If you’re looking to distinguish yourself in the work place, your entire outfit, including your handbag, must be on point.
Keep reading to find out what you need to look for when shopping for a purse for work.
# 1 Colour
A work bag needs to match a lot of the outfits you already wear to the office. Your best bet is to buy one in a neutral colour. This generally includes a purse being black, beige or khaki. These colours go with almost all clothing items and is very fitting for an office dress code.
# 2 Style
For work, you want to carry a handbag that is boxy. Slouchy bags are great for more casual weekend outfits but less-so for the office.
A boxy structured bag helps you maintain a professional, classy appearance and compliments your work outfits seamlessly.
You can think of this bag as the female version of a briefcase. They’re very corporate looking but just as stylish too.
# 3 Quality
When buying a purse for work, you want to ensure your bags are made of quality material. These are the bags you’re going to be using a lot and will inevitably have to withstand wear and tear.
Unless you want to change your bags every year, the idea is to create a lasting collection of purses that will look new as long as possible.
When you shop at the store, ask questions about the make and the quality of the fabric to really get an idea of what you’re about to purchase. If the quality justifies the price tag, then it may be a great investment for you.
# 4 Versatility
Because you’re going to be wearing this purse very often, you want to feel you can carry it to as many different events as possible.
You also want to feel as though your purse matches 90% of the garments you already own. This eliminates the hassle of changing your purse daily and allows you to save yourself time.
# 5 Size
The size of your work bag will depend on the amount of things your job requires you to carry to and from the office.
Ideally, you get a large enough bag that also comes with a matching clutch. A matching clutch gives you the option to take your work outfit from day to night and allows you to carry a lot less things when you go out with friends after work.
In this article, I’ve shown you exactly what to pay attention to when buying a new purse for work.
