The Style Guide – Ladies Business Bags

Choosing a bag to take to work that is functional yet portrays an air of professionalism has always been a hard choice for the working woman. Here at Maxwell Scott we pride ourselves in offering a selection of ladies leather business bags and totes to satisfy even the hardest consummate professional. Our range of ladies leather briefcases, laptop bags and folder totes feature simplistic, timeless shapes to complement any work wear.

How do I choose a style to suit my needs?

Ladies Leather briefcaseThis part is the hardest, think carefully about what you need to carry to work everyday and how long your commute is. Do I need to carry a laptop, A4 papers, folders or simply a work diary and my everyday essentials? If you need to carry a laptop plus papers and want to appear professional, then the Calvino laptop business bag is as smart as a briefcase, and can be carried in the hand with ease. Should your preference be for a shoulder bag that appears more feminine yet has the functionality to protect your laptop or MacBook, then the stylish yet feminine Fabia or the Fiorella briefcase shoulder bag may be the wise choice. All of these leather ladies business bags come with padded protection for your MacBook or laptop plus room for all of your work essentials.

If you are lucky enough to carry a lighter load and aren't required to carry a laptop with you, we offer several leather shoulder handbags suitable for carrying A4 papers and files. The Scala leather business bag is a classic shape yet extremely functional, with the ability to segregate papers, phone, pens and diaries within internal compartments. Should you need more room for files then the Rivara shoulder bag is the largest shoulder bag for ladies in the range.

What colour should I choose?

All of our leather ladies briefcases, laptop bags and totes come in three luxurious colours. The classic colour for a work bag is night black which is often required by professions such as lawyers, barristers and city workers. Should your profession of choice allow you to be more daring in your choice of colour, then our dark chocolate leather bags are smart enough to be worn with suits, but equally as smart when worn with smart casual attire. Finally our glorious chestnut tan leather business bags offer a perfect companion to casual attire or more relaxed workwear.
