Structured Top-Handle Tote

A structured top handle adds just enough polish to push our favorite tote from casual to elegant. Plus, this midsize bag is sleek without being stuffy and neutral enough to work with just about any outfit. The textured and treated leather can withstand daily use too, making this bag more of an investment than an extravagance, right?

Faux-Leather Shoulder Bag

You want the look of Chanel without the anxiety that comes with toting a $5,000 handbag. (Seriously, it’s more than a mortgage payment or two.) That’s why we love this stylish quilted faux-leather alternative. Wear it everywhere without worrying about wear and tear. It’s inexpensive enough, after all.

Nylon Crossbody Bag

Fact: Nylon is quite possibly the most durable handbag material. And Prada is an absolute pro when it comes to offering cute and innovative ways to dress up the typical nylon bag. Yes, it’s pricey—but this baby can withstand literally anything and still look brand new. The leopard is a nice touch too.

Transparent Tote

We see you: You’re looking for a beach bag that’s professional enough to sport to the office before you bolt to catch a beachside sunset. Enter this Staud handbag. It’s water- and sand-friendly, with crocodile details. Even better, the middle portion can be detached and used as a clutch, making this a two-for-one.

Soft Clutch Bag

You’re lusting after Bottega Veneta’s pouch bag, but you know you have to prioritize the European vacation you’ve been dreaming about instead. This Mansur Gavriel soft clutch bag is a third of the price and just as fashionable. Don’t be fooled by its small appearance—this bag is mighty, with the potential to hold just about anything you’ll need for an entire day’s worth of running around, no matter what’s on your calendar.
