Everyone needs a bag, whether it’s a snazzy backpack to keep snacks for workaholics or a posh holdall for the clothes of first class travellers, we all have something to keep in a bag. Not only that, they are a fantastic stylish accessory that any busy being should own. Check out my style guide to which bag is best for your different stylish requirements.
The Bum Bag
To all you university student-low cut ever wearers, you’re probably off to a festival this year. Keep those booze pennies safe (and the padlock for your tent which has since been broken in to) along with your Nokia 3310 in a bum back, easily accessible even when you get festival vision (the worst double vision of your life). This Topman one is less than £15!
Pretty much the Ronseal of the bag world, the holdall *literally* holds all, imagine that! A good holdall is always a good thing to have, be it for a weekend away or a business trip, you can fit so much in them - plus a good leather one will last you for a good while - like this ASOS Menswear one for £70!
The Back Pack
I actually think we should all channel our inner school days and wear back packs, I wear one all through the week because I can fit so much in it and not have the worry of not having something with me. Don’t fret, I don't look like a tourist in it and I certainly don't have one of those ones that has a clip at the front, what kind of bag has a bloody seat belt? That sh*t is more like a parachute. This £14.99 bag from New Look is a great option for spending a day in the city or chucking on for your morning commute (complete with snacks of course).
I mean really it had to be done…at some stage in our lives we will have been a briefcase w*nker just like good old Will (if you don't get that reference, ask one of the cool kids). I’d recommend, if you want a nice briefcase, this Bottega Veneta Nero Soft Crocodile Briefcase is a great and financially viable option at £18,015…😨
What bag do you opt for in life, drop me a comment below, I'd love to know! See you tomorrow for the cocktail club 🍸
