Whether you’re working with a tight fall shopping budget or would rather splurge on cozy work-from-home staples, the good news is that you don’t need to spend a ton to pick up a brand-new handbag. In fact, we found 18 stunners all under $100 that look far more expensive than their actual price tags. There are trendy animal prints, timeless LBBs (little black bags) and a variety of shapes and styles to carry you from work to date night to the grocery store and everything in between. Read on for our favorite budget-friendly picks.
1. Vince Camuto Kenni Satchel
This is how you carry summer’s tie-dye trend into fall. Literally.
2. Topshop Wing Taylor Olive Tote Bag
The combination of smooth and croc-embossed leather and the elegant trapeze shape is what makes this tote look infinitely more expensive than it is.
3. Treasure & Bond Ellis Flap Crossbody Bag
You may already own a chic brown crossbody, but it’s the elongated U-shape of this beauty that sets it apart from all the others.
4. BP Mini Faux-Leather Backpack
For those who prefer a totally hands-free approach, this backpack is sleek enough for a trek to the office and it can fit all your workout gear for a post-workday run.
5. Madewell Canvas Transport Tote
Excellent for grocery runs, beach days, picnics in the park and toting around all your kid’s snacks—without sacrificing style.
6. Staud Bissett Zebra-Print Leather Bag
Zebra stripes may evoke images of a hot, sunny safari, but they’ll also go perfectly with all your dark-hued winter staples (like black denim or a burgundy knit) for an extra pop of fun.
7. Un Billion Poppy Bamboo-Handle Handbag
The summery bamboo handle and autumnal green leather balance each other out to make one timeless handbag.
8. Glamorous Exclusive Slouchy Pillow Clutch
You’ll be seeing many more of this slouchy, cloud-like handbags over the next year thanks to the rise of the Bottega Veneta pouch. Lucky for us, this woven variation (which also comes with a chain strap if you prefer to go hands-free) is 98 percent cheaper, but every bit as trendy.
9. House of Want Newbie Baguette
This ‘90s-style shoulder bag is yet another super popular silhouette going into fall/winter. And while black patent leather may feel a little too dressed up for some, the tortoise-shell links on the strap help it feel much more day-appropriate.
10. Kate Spade New York Robyn North-South Flap Phone Crossbody
Just big enough to fit your phone, credit card and keys. Because really, what else do you need for grocery store and coffee shop runs?
11. Truss Striped-Woven Mini Tote
OK, so this adorable mini is exactly $100, not under $100, but we think the combination of traditional fall colors, woven raffia and quasi-triangular shape make this well worth that extra buck (plus tax).
12. ASOS Design Stone Croc-Effect ‘90s Shoulder Bag
Stick a Wet One packet in the inside pocket, so you’re always prepared to clean up any sudden scuff marks or red-wine spills. That way you’ll keep this cutie looking fresh and new…all the way into 2021.
13. My Accessories London Curved Crossbody Bag
This ice-blue shade looks like a winter dream when worn with cream-colored knits or a gray silk slip skirt.
14. Overland Odessa Cowhide Crossbody Bag
We advise you hop on the Beyoncé-inspired cow-print trend now. FYI, this trend is only going to get bigger and bigger as we head into cooler weather.
15. Charles & Keith Angular Flap Bag
You can never go wrong with a little black handbag, especially one with a bold gold handle and swooping geometric flap.
16. Fossil Billie Small Crossbody Bag
Swap the sunset-hued fabric strap for a gold chain to take this dusty pink crossbody from day to night.
17. JW Pei Gabbi Bag
Like your favorite scrunchie, but in the form of a luxe-looking mini handbag.
18. Charles & Keith Two-Stone Stone-Embellished Bag
Another great day-to-night option, this forest green and beige crossbody will go with everything from your favorite pair of worn-in jeans and a T-shirt to that navy gown you plan to wear to your cousin’s wedding.
