The perfect day to night bag

One of the things I love the most about my job is that I get to travel a lot. Discovering new places is one of my main sources for inspiration and I always come back filled with new energy after one of my trips abroad.

When it comes to packing, I always try to keep it fairly minimal which, naturally, is a bit of a challenge when you work in fashion and want to pack as many options as possible. The key to keeping things interesting when packing light, is to focus on pieces that can be worn in several ways, like this J.W.Anderson logo detail bag for example. It comes with both a detachable, gold tone, chain strap as well as a short leather handle, giving you two bags for the price of one. Caching! Here I’ve styled two looks showing you how to take this versatile beauty from day to night.

This belted suit look is something I would typically wear during the day. It’s comfortable, yet chic and the ATP Atelier Astrid Sandals are perfect for running between meetings. Here I’ve opted for the golden chain strap which adds an elegant touch to this understated look. The strap is long enough to allow you to wear the bag across your body which keeps your hands free (definitely a bonus if your phone, like mine, is attached to your hand 24/7).

For the evening look, I opted for the short leather handle which adds a ladylike touch to this sleek, pleated Filippa K ensamble. The top and pants are super light weight and look just as good when worn separately as they do together, which makes them great travel companions. Bonus tip: Red lipstick is great for transissioning your look from day to night and takes up zero space in your suitcase!
