The bag edit: arm candy under £100

Whilst I sincerely understand the desire of owning a designer handbag, I do believe that beautiful treasures don’t have to cost a fortune to add the stylish final touch to an outfit, especially when the choices are so wonderful that a girl would certainly find herself feeling like a kid in a candy shop. Only this time it will be a different kind of candy - it won’t increase your chances of caries, but rather make you feel chic (and hold your belongings, too) – all within a very sensible budget. An absolute win-win.

Where to buy: 1. Tan boxy cross-body bag, Fiorelli (£45), 2. Flip lock clutch, TopShop (£38) + in blush, mint, grey and watermelon, 3. Battleship zip clutch, Nine West (£50) + in blush, 4. Dino Italian leather clutch, KG (£95) + burnt orange snake embossed, 5. Lexi crossbody, Vince Camuto (£79), 6. Prisma textured clutch, Alexander Wang (£99), 7. Pop diva shoulder bag, Nine West (£40) + in black, python or orange/pink duo, 8. Marlow top zip cross body, Fossil handbags (£83), 9.

Large soft holdall, TopShop (£38), 15. Darrel quilted barrel bag in blush, Dune (£69) + in black or tan – also must-see oversized suede clutch, 16. Rust leather tan tote bag, River Island (£70), 17. Burgundy padlock oversized shopper, Warehouse (£38) – also have a look at this zip-tote and this chic cross-body bag, so fab. 18. Two-tone leather Wooster tote bag, Whistles (£75).

I am in love with 2, 4, 5, 10, 16 and 18 and feeling particularly tempted with the woven clutch as I have been looking for one for a while and the burnt orange colour will work wonderfully with my existent wardrobe. What about you?

  10. I don't believe it has to be a designer bag to love it (I have an entirely different relationship with fashion), but I do have one requirement: it has to be leather. I've bought only one bag of faux leather, a clutch from Nine West I got in Istanbul, I don't regret it at all, because it holds up so well. But I don't think I'll make another exception too soon.

    1. Ada, there are quite a few here that are leather as I prefer it this way myself. Leather or fabric/straw.

  12. Oh my... what a wonderful selection! And I love that you found so many that are real leather, it may sound snobby but at this point in my life I've ruined enough inexpensive handbags to have sworn off non-leather entirely. But that doesn't mean I don't want a lower-priced handbag now and then!

  13. Considering I spent the summer with a Gap tote bag that I got on sale for $8, I would agree that a a great bag doesn't always have to be a designer bag. Can I just have the entire 3rd row ;p

  15. Couldn't agree more! I'm someone who really uses and abuses bags... I wouldn't do well at all with a 2k bag!
