Dear Stylemma, I work in town and am always on the go. I’m looking for a bag big enough to hold my laptop, make-up, phone, notebook, keys and a change of clothes. I want something smart and simple — no tassels or unnecessary pockets please!

This season it’s all about the shopper tote — a roomy, over-the-shoulder bag that’s every working woman’s dream. They were all over the catwalk, from Mulberry to Givenchy. Zara has come up trumps this season; its plaited shopper bag, €119, comes in cherry-red, tan or black and has a Celine-esque simplicity to it. The two-tone shopper, also available at Zara, is a bargain at €39.95, and it’s roomy enough to stash all your belongings. Brown Thomas has some great options, too, but Michael Kors’s cream shopper with brown handles, €195, is our pick.
