These stylish work bags will be your new go-tos


Finding the *perfect* work bag can be a very, very tricky thing.

When was the last time you found yourself digging through your bag trying to find your keys or wallet? Probably yesterday. While we've been loyal to our simple and beloved leather totes for years, it's time for a functional change when it comes to your go-to work bag.

You need one with pockets and compartments for everything that's important to you in your life -- from your Metro card to your wallet and even your favorite red lipstick. And of course, the quality matters. The perfect work bag must be prepared to withstand even the most strenuous situations, like New York City subways during rush hour.

We've rounded up our top five picks for the ultimate work bag that can do it all.

We're loving Fossil's 'Ryder' satchel for its structured silhouette. Plus, its high-quality leather is guaranteed to soften with age and look good over time meaning you'll be toting this bag around for years to come.

With its ability to transform from a large tote to a medium day bag, Haist's 'Nomad' tote scored major points with its functionality.
