1. The perfect work bag

You’ll need something that can hold all your essentials — laptop, notebook of ideas, name cards, wallet, phone — without being cumbersome or looking clunky. You’d also want it to look proper yet fun, because you’re no snooze. Celine’s Coquelicot grained calfskin belt bag is roomy with a structured shape, and a vivacious bright red colour that will definitely stand out.

2. Sensible (yet chic) shoes

2. Sensible (yet chic) shoes

Sensible footwear doesn’t have to just refer to outdated court shoes. This season’s slingback, in particular Chanel’s two-toned slingbacks, is a great alternative. Its chunky short heel, neutral beige-and-black colour palette, and timeless silhouette, will keep you going from a board meeting to dinner with clients with ease.

3. A watch as tough as you

3. A watch as tough as you

For the tough girl, dainty jewellery-watches just don’t cut it. Enter the Tudor Black Bay “Black”. Modelled after Tudor’s heritage diver’s watches, the all-black timepiece has an androgynous, sporty vibe, luxed up with pink-gold hands. You can even switch between a brushed steel bracelet or an aged leather strap, according to what you’re wearing that day.

There are so many reasons why we love the red lip: It’s fierce, strong, prominent and sensual — everything a girl boss embodies. For a formula that’s long-lasting, pigmented and smooth, try Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge Definition in Carmin. The lush red shade is rich and hydrating, and glides on your lips like a breeze.
