Are we the only ones who don’t understand the tiny handbag trend dominating social media feeds at the moment? Not only can you not sling it over your arm, but where do you put your phone? And your wallet? And keys?
We’ve sought out five of the best hard-working and multitasking bags to make your life easier. From the baby bag you’ll love even if you don’t have children to the clutch that charges your phone on the go, we’ve uncovered some absolute gems.
The best-selling briefcase
This best-selling briefcase is made from high-quality leather and features wide-opening zips for easy access, 15.6” laptop sleeve, a second tech sleeve and multiple pockets including a handy smart sleeve to stabilise on top of a suitcase when in transit.

The work bag you’ve been waiting for
Not that you would want to carry 20 kgs on your shoulders, but Sparro’s brilliant laptop bag can handle it. The genius in Premium member Amie Fitt’s bags is the compartments. There’s a fold-away shoe compartment– to keep your sneakers away from everything – a space for dirty laundry for your sweaty gym clothes, a heatproof pocket for your hair straightener, a removable zip pouch, and a cushioned area to secure your laptop. It’s the work bag you’ve been waiting for!
The convertible backpack
You’re probably not going to believe this, but the 4-way Ari backpack is actually a baby bag that comes with a padded changing mat. Premium member Sophie Doyle is disrupting the nappy bag market by creating stylish versatile bags that can be used long after your babe has grown up. There are three elasticised pockets (including an insulated one for bottles), a space for your phone, a wipe-clean lining, and it comes with two detachable and adjustable straps that convert the bag into a backpack. We love this dark rosy colour too.
The stash away shopper
We’re all trying our best to be conscious consumers and make considered purchases, but for those times you need to make an emergency purchase, stashing a (stylish) reusable shopping tote avoids the need to waste additional plastic too.

The clutch that charges your phone
If you’re one of those people who gets nervous once their phone battery dips below 60%, you’re going to love the range of chargeable bags from Aussie brand Mighty Purse. Established in back 2013 by Ana Slavka, each bag comes fully lined with multiple compartments and a concealed slimline battery (Android and iPhone) to charge your phone on the go. We love this metallic vegan leather clutch for the festive season.
