Sometimes it can seem like you need a different bag for every social occasion. There is an overwhelming selection on the market these days and it can be difficult to commit to just one bag that serves you across a number of dress codes.
We think that it’s time to leave your life of handbag polygamy behind and become a monogamous woman. We have found the only bag you will ever need.
Don’t believe us? Read on.

This is the only bag you will ever need. It may not give you the same fluttery, “must have this or I will die” feeling as that drop dead gorgeous but totally impractical Louis Vuitton clutch - but what it does give you is so much better than that.
The classic envelope shoulder bag transcends all dress codes and personal styles and we love this particular version from Alexander Wang. The understated black leather, crisp silver hardware and structured shape make it appropriate for work or play, and its size means it is just as practical on a shopping trip as it is on a night out. Remove the strap and you have a generous clutch or shorten it for the appearance of an underarm tote.
Still not convinced? Check out our three favorite ways to wear it.

1. Casual cool
Pair with your favourite relaxed jeans and a classic Bretton stripe tee for lazy Sundays at the markets or a chilled out brunch date. The sharp details of the bag elevate this casual ensemble without looking out of place as your typical OTT ‘it bag’ would.

2. Night Out
Wear under your arm with an on trend slip dress and nude pumps for a perfect drinks with the girls outfit. For extra brownie points, pair with a contrasting colour like olive green to really make the bag pop.

To take this bag to the office, pair with pieces that match its structured, clean aesthetic. We love it worn across the body with culottes and a crisp button up shirt. Big enough for all your office essentials, dressy enough for the corporate world and so much cuter than a laptop bag. It’s a win, win.
