It can be really hard to find the right clothes for work: there is formal, business casual, or even casual clothing to consider. It can be even harder to find a bag that fits you and your outfits. A briefcase can be very unpleasant if you have to carry it around all day long and a messenger bag is very practical but can also be too informal.
A hybrid between those two bag types is a shoulder bag. You can get a very formal but functional one that looks great at work and you can put in all your belongings and work materials in it. For example, a Maxwell Scott leather shoulder bag is very stylish yet appropriate for the work place and comes in brown or black leather. There are different models for men and women but all of them can be worn on one shoulder or across the body. If you like to stay organised, you will like internal zip pockets. The great thing about leather is that the material is very durable and it will give your bag a special touch, once it is worn out a little bit.
If you are more interested in modern materials, a Kipling shoulder bag might be the right fit for you. Kipling is an experienced bag manufacturer and there newest line proves that once again. The different designs all have female names like Amelia, Katie or Kyoko. What they have in common is that they can fit A4 paper formats (which is important if you carry around work documents), they have zipped compartments, long carry handles, and pockets for your phone or iPod.
Women aren’t the only ones to have discovered shoulder bags as the perfect accessory. Mens shoulder bags come in a lot of different designs and sturdy materials such as leather is the most common. They usually are big enough to carry big things like books or a laptop. The main difference is that men’s shoulder bags are more robust and don’t have that many inside pockets.

When you clean your leather bag, never rub a wet towel on the leather because it will destroy it. Use warm distilled water and mix a little bit of mild liquid soap. Dip a sponge into the soapy water and wring out the sponge so that it is barely wet. Then just blot the sponge over the stained spots. Alternatively, you may use some leather cleaner on your bag as well.
