Save Vs Splurge: The Neutral Work Handbag

Save Vs Splurge: The Neutral Work Handbag

Finding the right work handbag for work is such a pain, right? Not only should it be the perfect size (so that it can hold all your everyday essentials), but it should also be the right colour to seamlessly work with almost any outfit.

While you’ll usually find girls gravitating towards black as the no-fail option, we just recently made a case for coloured handbags to replace your trusty old one with. But if you’re still hovering in neutral territory, this Tory Burch buckle tote in a light oak hue and gold-toned hardware is a great option. A sizeable bag to carry to work, it is also sturdy enough to easily fit your laptop. The bag has a top zipper, and the inner compartments include a padded central compartment, two unzipped compartments as well as four slip pockets. Another great addition are the adjustable buckle straps, making it a versatile and chic piece.

However, I think it’s too simple a bag to consider splurging a little over Rs 21,000 for it. So I decided to look for a similar piece that’s more affordable. Of course, Mango has made a worthy doppleganger at a palatable price that’s totally worth considering. A light pink shopper, this piece is made of pebbled faux leather and also comes with adjustable buckled handles and a zip fastening. If you’re looking for a new addition to your work wardrobe, I’d say this Tory Burch twin is totally worth the steal.
