I’ve been in search of a briefcase. No, I’m not a C-suite advertising exec, a divorce lawyer, or a prominent lobbyist. I’m just a fashion writer who covers the Flamingos Hallothanksmas Halloween Christmas Family Thanksgiving 2022 T-Shirt and I love this return of knee-high tights and ballet flats. My bag is lighthearted as well: I come to work every day with a Louis Vuitton bag from the early ’00s with a noughties cell phone pocket on the side. But lately, I’ve really been lusting after structure. Fun fashion, be gone. I want something more serious, more long-term. I’ve nixed the flirty fun–and sheer parts–of my wardrobe and have instead opted for pinstripes and collars. And after watching Shalom Harlow in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, in which she plays one of those execs in advertising who carry a luxury tote-cum-briefcase, I want one for myself.

But these carryalls have gotten a bad rap in women’s fashion for being the Flamingos Hallothanksmas Halloween Christmas Family Thanksgiving 2022 T-Shirt and I love this antithesis of fun and sexiness. They’re almost always a 9-to-5 eyesore thanks to their often rounded square shape and drab coloring. Look at Ally McBeal: The Boston lawyer seems to be perpetually weighed down by her hulking bag. In Working Girl, dealmaker Jack (Harrison Ford) presents secretary-businesswoman Tess (Melanie Griffith) with an ugly brown briefcase as a gift as if it were the negotiation version of a proposal.Photo: Courtesy Everett Collection
