Alexander Wang takes the construction worker’s tool belt to a new level with his version in lemon yellow leather, replete with
storage for everything from coins to keys.
Christopher Kane uses straps and plastic clips to secure his sleek, and modern take on the clutch.
This “charming” brooch by Marc Jacobs holds everything from safety pins to guitar picks.
Coach gets functional with their latest riff on the work boot. The thick rubber sole is ribbed for traction, and the fur lining and hardware add a chic touch.

Giuseppe Zanotti lets you protect your back and store your stuff, with his zip around corset style belt.
