Bag Stalking! 13 Work Bags That Are Perfect For Your 9-to-5

Is there anything scarier than the term "Business Casual?" Dress codes are constricting — they can turn browsing through your closet from a joyous affair to just another chore. And, while our style here at R29 is anything but formal, we know how to spot a perfect office uniform when we see it. Nothing pulls an outfit together like a statement bag, so, camera in hand, we searched the city high and low for the best of the best in workwear totes. Indeed, we snapped the Big Apple's most fabulous residents during their commute, sporting some seriously stylish (and stylishly serious) arm candy. Take a cue from our career gals and put your best arm forward — it may not score you that promotion, but you'll certainly turn some (corporate) heads.
