Bag Stalking: 20 Street Snaps To Inspire Your Winter Arm Candy

In New York's (normally) cold winter weather, it's difficult to stand out from the black-and-navy crowd while still staying warm. The secret: finding an undeniably cool bag to seriously turn some heads. The problem? Figuring out which accessory will go best with that huge parka.
To solve this style conundrum, we looked to the city's ever-inspiring streets and snapped some real (stylish) gals. The solution was clear — for bag practicality and high-impact fashion, this year, size matters. The colder it gets, the bigger your coat gets, and the bigger your coat is, the bigger your bag should be. But just because the satchels are on steroids, it doesn't mean attention to detail should get kicked to the curb. From pops of red and woven prints to designer labels that just won't quit (think: Céline), this batch of winter bags will warm your soul.
