LFW: Boxy Bags To Try For The Occasion

If you love the idea of structures and sturdiness–this article is for you! Besides itsy and cute bags walking the streets of New York, you also get to see edgy bags flooding the walkways of London. 

Boxy bags are lovely to look at, but are they easy to pull off? Some people may feel boxy bags are difficult to carry or they look too structured and finally the misconception that boxy bags have less functionality. In actual fact, there’s a bag for every occasion! 

If you’re going for a movie, travelling in Europe, or even going for a posh event, we’ve got your box covered.

#1. Work

Let’s start easy. A work bag is best when it already has structure, so a boxy bag would definitely be perfect for this occasion. You would want a bag that looks work appropriate and of a certain size to be able to fit your work essentials. 

Gucci Animalier Leather Top Handle

The Gucci Animalier Top Handle is chic and sleek. The best part? Its structure. It stands well on its own and doesn’t sag everywhere! It’s simple to access your items from this style and great when you’re working on-the-go as well. 

It also comes with a shoulder strap, if you wish to wear it by your shoulders.

When there is work, there will always be play! Regardless of what your weekend shenanigans are, having a light and hands-free bag would be ideal.

#3. Travel

One of the most important occasions is travelling! We could wake up at 4am to catch a flight but can’t resist snoozing our alarms more than three times on a Monday work morning. When travelling, structured bags might seem too heavy to have, but one lightweight boxy bag we recommend you rent is the Balenciaga Bazar Shopper.

Boxy bags may seem too structured for events like weddings, gala or dinner parties. But they’re pretty perfect if you pair your gala dresses with a colourful and compact boxy bag.
