JUNO TEMPLE FELL FOR THE CLEVER DETACHABLE POUCH-FRONTED WILLOW BAG DURING FASHION WEEK

You may have noticed the Grazia team has become a bit obsessed with fashionable work-wear of late: we’ve held a masterclasses on the topic, dedicated a new page of our fashion section in the mag to real women and how they navigate tricky dress codes and we recently studied the ten most inspiring office wardrobes for a little extra guidance.

It’s a tightrope and we know it, but there’s one piece that can act as a daily saviour: a really good business-ready handbag. It’s the thing that lugs around your life, but that doesn’t mean you should treat it with disrespect! Yes, you’ll throw pairs of extra shoes in, a kindle, paperwork, loose makeup… but it can still make or break an ensemble, and be a savvy way to unleash a degree of sartorial personality when your grey suit says nothing but sombre.

So which brands score high in the business bag department, you ask? Some will be obvious – we all know Mulberry do a top-notch tote and that on the high street Zara is a big bag go-to. But check out the Aspinal number that charges your phone (genius), the ultra-simple laptop-toting shoppers from new Spanish label Lacambra and many man more in the gallery above. Scroll now and give your office attire an arm candy update.
