Job interviews are notoriously stressful—and aside from the pressure of the actual interview, of course, a big part of that bundle of nerves revolves around nailing the interview outfit. Though I always wonder if I’m going too far or just being too plain, I’ve found that adding a portfolio bag—simple, professional, but also chic—always hits the perfect note. (It also solves the problem of rooting around in a bag for a resumé, which has inevitably gotten horribly wrinkled in transit.) These clutches will keep your C.V. ready for show—and, hopefully, brag about.
