After quite a long break from the office, there is one specific item that I’m especially looking forward to taking out of the wardrobe again, my bags. Because let’s face it, we haven’t really had many opportunities to carry one of the women’s favourite accessories during the lockdown. So, now that life is finally going back to normal, we’ve selected the 5 best bags to accompany you to the office based on the most wearable and fun trends from the Fall/Winter 2021 runway shows. And you’ll be pleased to know that there’s something for every taste, from huge totes to micro bags; the bags are back with full force for fall 2021.

The Back-to-the-Office Maxi Tote
You’ll be ably to carry all you need to the office and a little bit more in these extra-large bags, from your computer to hand-sanitiser, you name it. We’ve seen the maxi tote trend in the fall 2021 runway shows of The Row, Fendi, Christian Dior, Proenza Schouler, and many other fashion houses. So don’t be shy because this fall, the bigger, the better!
And because we like to have fun with fashion, besides the huge handbag trend, we’ll also go for tiny, micro bags where you can carry your lipstick, keys, and credit card. Brands like Victoria Beckham, Celine, Ferragamo, and Chanel presented the adorable micro bags at Fall/Winter 2021 Fashion Week.
Fluffy bags to keep you warm in fall 2021
The fluffy bag trend will definitely help you go to the office feeling you’re still cuddling your blanket. From shaggy faux-fur to fluffy shearling, these handbags are all you need to keep you warm this fall. Prada sent models wearing fluffy coats and matching bags on the runway. But Miu Miu, Burberry, and JW Anderson were among other luxury fashion labels presenting cuddly fury bags for fall 2021.
Partying at the office?
Who says you can only carry a shiny handbag to a party? We certainly feel like celebrating in fall 2021, so we’ll take sparkling bags to the office, silver, golden or sequined bags, as long as it screams party-time! Gucci, Chanel, Burberry, and Paco Rabanne all agree that the Roaring Twenties are back!
A classic and timeless trend, the chain-embellished bags will still be a thing in fall 2021. Whether delicate or chunky, the chains come in gold, silver but are also colourful. We’ve seen them at Acne Studios, Fendi, Armani, Louis Vuitton, and Stella McCartney, among others.
