As twenty-somethings with steady jobs, we need an accessory large to hold all of our work essentials. It needs to be an upgrade from the ones we used to carry our books in school–we’re in the “real world” and we’re getting “real” paychecks.
Since we dress to impress, one of the easiest ways to pull your entire look together is with a quality commuter bag. Whether you’re wearing a power suit or jeans and a blouse, a commuter bag shows you’re a serious career woman (even if you also use it for just going to the gym).
