5 Must Have a.Bags: THE WORKBAG
It is only fitting that my very first article be about bags as simply put it started it all for me. My love for bags goes way way back and I think this definitely falls under my list of fashion must-haves. I'm a firm believer that if you have the perfect bag with you, regardless of your outfit, you can NEVER go wrong. Bags are the perfect accessory. Not only does it carry whatever stuff you need to have on you but it also keeps your look fuss-free. Why you say? You know those items that you just love to stuff in pockets or carry around – in all honesty it just makes outfits look bulky, therefore messy. Use a bag or a clutch to put your stuff in and you don’t have to worry about these things.
You must be thinking, “what bag(s) should I buy?” or “which one(s) should I have?” I proudly introduce a.Fasione’s very own bag guide to the must-have bags that every girl [and guy] should have: “the 5 Must Have a.Bags List.”
Over the next 5 days, I will write about 5 bag types that I personally think each person should have. And to kick off things we have the workbags.
I personally think that the workbag is the most basic type of bag a person should have. For the young ones it will be considered your school bag – and no, I am not talking about a backpack – a workbag should be a satchel/messenger/briefcase type bag that can go from the office [or school] to wherever you’re going immediately after. It should be spacious and sturdy enough to fit in a few books, documents or even a small laptop but light weight enough to lug around town.
Here are my top 5 picks [2 women, 2 men, 1 unisex] suggestions of classic workbags [and brands] you can consider:
- Proenza Schouler PS1 Satchel – a simple yet well-coveted satchel made of lush and luxurious leather that is a fashion lover's must-have.
- Mulberry Alexa – a preppy stated leather satchel crafted from soft-buffalo leather that makes you the envy of all.
- Balenciaga Messenger Bag – an opulent take on the humble messenger bag made of soft-leather accentuated with Balenciaga’s classic metal studs.
- Mulberry Elkington Briefcase – a classic all-leather briefcase for the classic in you.
- The Cambridge Satchel – fashion’s latest IT satchel hand-made from sturdy leather that melts over time.
That should’ve whetted your appetite enough to shop! So start saving and get a.Shopping! Oh and don't forget to stay tuned for the next installment of the 5 Must Have a.Bags List.
