So, the next question is how can you choose the best work handbag that will

  1. Go with any outfit
  2. Look nice 
  3. Have a good price

The first thing you can do is go through your wardrobe and see what are your go-to options. See what kind of color scheme you go for the most. That is probably the easiest way to choose the right color of your handbag. 

The same goes for the model of the handbag. Think about your personal and work style. If they are similar then you don’t have to worry about picking the right purse. If they are much different then you can look for more than one handbag.

As for the price, it depends on what you find to be a good bargain. Choosing a leather handbag is always a good investment for many reasons. Leather is very sustainable, always trending and can be both casual and professional. Maintaining a high quality leather bag is simple and doesn't require much time. 

The Most Important Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Work Bag

Besides being functional, fashionable and professional there are also several other key elements when it comes to choosing the perfect leather handbag for women.

It Should be Comfortable to Carry

Like any other clothing item, your handbag should also be comfortable. This can sometimes get overlooked because we can get too caught up in the way a handbag looks. When trying on a handbag notice how it feels on your shoulder and under your arm. 

If the shoulder strap easily slides off then you won’t have much fun always needing to adjust it. Another warning sign is when your arm is pushed in an uncomfortable way. Always remember that you will carry this handbag throughout your day so make sure it’s comfortable! 

Pockets for the Right Organization

A professional woman always needs to be organized on all levels in her life. And the right work bag can be so much helpful in keeping your things organized. When considering a new work handbag make sure it has at least one external zip pocket where you can put your essentials like your phone, car keys or lipstick! 

Of course, the inside of the bag is also very important. Having a bag with inside pockets can make your life easier if you can store your tablet, papers and business cards all in one place. No more throwing around stuff until you find what you are looking for. 

Expression Through Color

If most of your work wardrobe has a neutral color scheme or you love to wear all black, then consider upgrading your look with some daring colors. Bright yellow or red can really make your outfit special and can add character. 

These kinds of bright colored handbags are what the fashion influencers call statement bags. And they are absolutely right! You are making a statement that you are not only a professional with a great work ethic but also an unapologetic fashionista!
