Hey there! I’m wondering what type/style of handbag I should buy that can cross over from work to casual evenings–and can also look good from fall to spring. I’m a young professional and don’t have a large budget. Thanks! ~ Nicole
Hi Nicole! If you´re looking for the most multifunctional bag which can blend with any outfits for fall to spring and can bring you from night to day, I suggest you go for a black bag with clean details and sleek lines, preferably leather. I´m talking classic and basic black bag here.
Black can go with any color. In order to add vibrance to an outfit, play with your other accessories such as shoes and jewelries.
I understand the challenge that young professionals face. I was one myself. You need to look great and respectable at work on a budget. However, if you have a little savings to use, it´s important to invest for a reasonable great bag. Even if you wear the right suit, if your bag is questionable, it can cause people to double take. Plus, you don´t really want people to know you´re at a tight budget.
That said, I´ve got here two bags for you to choose from.
1. Blanka Satchel
I love the clean, sleek lines and rich leather of this satchel. It´s perfect for day to night and desk to date. It looks professional when teamed with suit and pencil skirt but will quickly transition into something girly and flirty when teamed with a sequined sleeveless top and denim pants.
HOBO INTERNATIONAL Blanca Satchel, $127.95
2. Ivanka Satchel
When I was still working in Bangkok, I saw many professional ladies on the skytrain on their way to work carrying this kind of bag. It looks very stylish and sophisticated. They were typically the girls who work in the office. They carry a rectangular black handbag, usually not expensive, for their files and folders.
I hope this helps.
