Your work or day-to-day bag shouldn't look like an overnighter. If it feels as if you are lugging bricks back-and-forth from home to office it's probably time to edit.
So what should you keep with you throughout the day while cutting down on unnecessary clutter? These edited essentials will keep you stylishly in-transit without the weight.
It all starts with finding the perfect bag that can stand up to the agenda you have set for the day. Put some thought into the fabrication and construction that will be truly built to last (such as the Filson twill and leather briefcase).
Avoid a tangled mess of cords and pull all of your tech needs together in one place. You can create an on-the-go mobile station with a beautiful and sturdy leather organizer (we're a fan of the Mod line by This Is Ground).
One of your most important daily essentials should not be taken for granted. Wallets take a lot from us so what you ultimately settle on should be fit for the task. Performance is key: think hand-crafted, premium materials, and meticulous attention to design details (not just aesthetic but also ease of use). We've been through a lot of wallets and the slim fits by Makr are amongst our favorites.
Be ready for sudden changes in weather with year-round must-have items such as an umbrella, scarf, and sunglasses. Go big on form and function by upgrading to tried and tested brands such as the Davek umbrellas and the award-winning MYKITA sunglasses.
You can lighten your load without skimping on the necessities by being thoughtful about what you need while in transit vs. what can simply stay stored at home or in your desk.
