Shop the best new season handbags under £100
Handbags under £100 don’t need to get a bad rap. While investing in the best designer handbags is often a pipe dream, it’s easy to forget that you don’t have to spend a fortune on candy to make them look expensive.
For example, COS’ shoulder bag looks so high-end that it’s raging on Instagram and the Scandi store can’t restock it fast enough. And did I mention it’s only £89 AND it’s made from genuine leather?
If you’re looking for an everyday bag that’s both timeless and practical, the aforementioned store is always a hit, as are ARKET and & Other Stories.
The key is to invest in good quality materials and simple styles. Leather and suede are of course more durable and nowadays much more affordable. That said, the vegan leather game is strong right now, so you don’t have to compromise on your beliefs or your dress game.
The high street is also a great port of call for trendier pieces, as the price makes them less appealing, if you’ve had enough of them next season – although we’d advocate practicing circularity where possible to avoid the waste.
Zara, Mango and JWPei are amazing for fun and colorful designs that work well for a night out or special event like weddings and holidays. Do you remember the summer when shell and pearl bags were all the rage? While Jacquemus and Loewe were just a few of the top designers with coveted styles, they weren’t exactly accessible.
It was only a matter of weeks before more budget-friendly alternatives started to appear, satisfying fashion lovers’ need for fun designs they wouldn’t regret later.
In terms of trends this season, watch out for XXL shopper, touches of neon and acid shades, as well as the playful textures of shearling and feathers. It’s all about having fun with your style again.
