Whether you’re team #WFH or #WFO, there’s always a reason to get another tote bag.

The partial lockdown has really made a change in our wardrobe. It went from pretty summer dresses to loungewear and sweatpants. As we’re just about to settle into our pyjamas for our next virtual meeting, news of offices opening has started, with many in Bangkok already back to business as usual.

Some may look forward to returning to the office, while others not so much. No matter which ‘side’ are you on, it’s time to head back into the real world and hopefully, with style and grace. These tote bags are great for a long day at the office. It’s spacious enough to put a lot of your essentials — which we can foresee that it’ll be plenty since it’s been quite a while since you were at your desk. Stuff as much as you want while still maintaining your style points.

Who knows — these stylish tote bags could help you feel a tad bit more excited to pack and head out as if it’s your first day back at your job.
