The Best Handbags For Work

Dear Working Girl,

Now that the holiday seasons (what a bumper of festival days it has been!) we need to consider stepping back into the office looking fabulous and ready for a new year of challenges and achievements. As an important part of any office outfit, a luxury handbag is that one all-important wardrobe item that you must choose carefully.

The best work handbags for women have features that make carrying your everyday essentials a joy—not a job. Look for an interior that’s roomy enough; And next, watch out for comfortable straps that stay put on the go. And of course, it is vital in this image-obsessed times to find a handbag with a stylish aesthetic that’s polished but not beyond dull – you want to look like the chic office lady, not the cleaning auntie. You need to look out for a versatile handbag that fits your work essentials, and can go from meetings to a work lunch, and to after-work drinks with the girls.

Our Checklist


You will be wanting a workbag that’s sturdy and durable enough to survive being squished on the rush hour MRT, but still looks good when you enter the office. What the bag is made of will be the main thing that determines that. A good quality leather is something that you will need.

ABARA’s luxury bags are made from the best quality leathers that you can find anywhere. You can do no better than making your selection from our range of sturdy, and durable handbags. Our top pick would be ABARA’s Tr’Apeze Bag, which comes in the top quality calfskin, glazed signature monogram canvas and even the best exotic skin in the world – crocodile.


Because fashion changes all the time, and because you will be paying top dollar for a top-quality handbag, you must choose a one-and-done type handbag, and invest in a timeless style that you will use for years to come. Choosing a classic style means that it will go with most of your working clothes and be appropriate for all occasions be it professional or leisure.

The perfect choice for a classic work bag at ABARA is our Tr’Apeze Bag, which is a timeless, structured top-handle handbag; It is polished and sturdy, and its clean, elegant lines mean that it will go well with tailored suits for work, yet elegant enough for a night out in town.

A Space For Everything

Look out for an interior that’s roomy enough to fit your essentials. While different girls need to haul different specific things around, common items include wallet, keys, phone, sunglasses and cosmetic items. And since we are starting the new work year, why don’t you do a Marie Kondo and throw out the junk that you no longer need.

ABARA’s Tr’Apeze Bag has space enough to fit all your essentials and more. It is spacious enough for even a small cosmetic pouch, to stow your lipgloss, and perfume spray; germ-phobes can carry your medical wipes and a spare face mask. Throw in an extra pair of earrings for a change of pace if your meetings should go awry!
