If you have clicked on this story, then we can only guess the number of hand and shoulder bags you must be holding on to right now! Being a working woman poses a lot of challenges, one of which is maintaining a stylish wardrobe without being repetitive or boring. This involves accessories of course.
One of the trickiest formal wear staples to accessorise is the formal dress. Other than shoulder and messenger bags, not much else is left in the hands-free department to wear with these dresses. But that was yesterday! Everybody’s dream body swap and favourite princess Meghan Markle paired one of her striped dresses and blazer with a crossbody bag and made our jaws drop instantly!
The trick is to pick designs that are not too loud and not too intimidating either. So, we picked out some great styles that you too can pair with your formal dresses, one day at a time!
A Panelled Sling
A classic black and white bag (one not too different than Meghan’s) will go with any and all of your formal shift and pencil dresses. Pair this with stripes and checks to balance out the colour coordination.
