There is no doubt; the working woman’s handbag is her “command center”.
Whether she’s carrying presentation hard copies or an extra laptop, just in case her team runs into any technical difficulties at the client’s office, or she’s quickly grabbing her last pair of Quick Tips to save a co-worker’s broken high heel, lending her lunchmate an extra pair of sunglasses as the sun unexpectedly peeks through the clouds during their outdoor meal, or she’s able to locate, of course at the bottom of her bag, the perfect shade of red lipstick for a last minute, after work invite, each woman’s handbag and its contents should be as unique and special as she is!
Isn’t this all the more reason to enjoy your seasonal handbags to the fullest?
One of the most delightful trends this fall/winter season is the two-tone scheme. You’ll find two-tone garments, shoes and, artfully, handbags too. For this guide, I’m going to take the liberty to broaden the definition of two-tone as two colors or two materials expressed in one design.
Fear not! This season’s two-tone handbags are so beautifully designed, they can easily be worn with the majority of your work wardrobe just like your traditional, go-to black bag. They instantly add an extra dose of visual interest and chicness to most every outfit. Plus, they are available at all price points. The key traits to look for are those two-tone handbags that have a classically structured shape as well as a complementary color palette. These key features will allow you the most versatility. At its most stylized approach, you can even successfully wear a two-tone print bag and mix it with a different print outfit, showcasing your serious style power.
Here are a few of my favorite two-tone handbags available for you, right now. Of course, I focused on roomy satchels and tote bags in order to accommodate all of your “command center” necessities, in addition to the other above recommended features.
Do you consider your handbag to be an important part of your visual presentation? What necessities do you carry in your power bag?
