Here are 5 top tips to buying the perfect one:

  • If you carry a lot in your bag, try a slouchy style that looks great when it’s full.
  • Structured city bags are perfect if you need to be really smart for work
  • When choosing your bag, go for thicker straps, so that they don’t dig in
  • Choose a leather style and it will last you a lot longer. most of the high street stores now sell them and they’re not too expensive
  • If you suffer from shoulder pain, ditch the shoulder bag and go for a sturdy backpack. It balances the weight evenly on your shoulders and they’re on trend this season too.
