The summer hols are almost out (sob), meaning it’s time to head back to reality – aka the office – with our work wives in tow. A sure-fire way to make the switch a little easier? New stuff to wear, obvs. So whether you’re starting a swish new job or internship, or you just wanna polish up your weekday vibe, here are the latest work bags and scarves (a major style detail, FYI) to wear to the office, all inspired by the catwalk. Get ready to look the biz.
Back To Burgundy
Mulberry showed us that burgundy is back for yet another season, with the dark, sultry shade set to become a firm fixture of our AW17 wardrobes. Take the trend straight to the daily grind with a 70s-style saddle bag in a rich wine hue, making way for major deets like hooped metal hardware. Whether tied onto the straps or worn around your neck, a geo-print scarf makes the ultimate add-on. So profesh.
Balenciaga proved that size matters with their larger-than-life shoulder bags for AW17, making all of our ‘everything-but-the-kitchen-sink’ dreams come true. Get XXL with this supersized tote in a cool grey hue, designed with plenty of space for those nine-to-five essentials (laptop, make-up, spare pair of sneaks). Throw it over your shoulder or – if you wanna go hands-free –wear it across-body, finishing the office get-up with a floral-print scarf tied on your wrist.
Small Yet Mighty
If you’re looking for a more down-sized design, or you just wanna go from desk to 2-4-1 cocktails as swiftly as poss (we hear you, girl), then a mini cross-body bag is your office BFF. Hold off on classic black and tan palettes, and pack a punch with prints and block colours, from mustard yellow to gun-metal grey. For extra street style vibes, tie a patterned scarf onto the straps. So swish.
