For a daily commute into the city, a comfortable, hands-free backpack is a no brainer. Of course, it should be able to fit your laptop in it, have plenty of compartments for your daily essentials (cue stationery, notebooks, chargers and earphones) and strike the perfect balance of being smart and stylish, but never stuffy.
If your job involves a suit and back-to-back business meetings, a briefcase is almost always a must. Even if you don’t tend to pull out your laptop while with clients, opting for a style that has space for one means you can maximise the use of your time in the back of all those taxis. You’ll also need to make a strong first impression, which is why we’ve selected briefcases that are sleek, understated, and professional.
From drop-ins at the dry-cleaners to visits at the bank and post office, you seem always to have a never-ending list of small tasks to complete around town. To help you manage it all with ease, opt for a hands-free bag with plenty of organisational compartments for the likes of receipts, bills and small change. Giving you one less job to do, we round-up your most fuss-free, hard-working and practical options.
