A cute bag is the perfect accessory to finish off any chic OOTD. Still, finding the right one at a good price can be hard to do (especially when you have expensive taste). It’s not impossible, though, as proven by these 11 bags—including totes, clutches and more—that all clock in at less than $150.

1. kate Spade Leila Medium Crossbody Bag
This classic black bag can be worn two ways—as a top handle or crossbody—thanks to the detachable strap. The sturdy build and shape allow enough room to hold all of your essentials without veering into giant tote territory (not that there’s anything wrong with a good tote).
2. aldo Rotorua Satchel
While similar in silhouette to the Kate Spade bag above, this Aldo model is a bit smaller in size if you prefer something a little lighter. The front buckle secures your items in the bag and the silver hardware is oh so chic. We also love the croc embossed look, which adds some pizazz to a basic black crossbody.
3. madewell The Simple Leather Crossbody
This color is too perfect for fall outfits and it even transitions nicely into winter, too. With minimal embellishments and a streamlined shape, it’s a small yet ideal style to hold your wallet and smaller essentials. Also note that the strap is adjustable and nice and thin, so it won’t look too bulky across your outfit.
4. house Of Want We Step Up Faux Shearling Shoulder Bag
Best Shoulder Bag
Pop this pink shearling bag on your shoulder to stand out in the crowd. It has plenty of space for your must-have daily items, and you can even slip a pair of gloves in the back zipper pocket when it gets a little chillier.
5. mali + Lili Woven Top Handle Vegan Leather Bag
Best Vegan Leather Bag
This trendy style is everywhere these days (it all started with this $1,900 Bottega Veneta beauty), and we’ve gotta say we love the woven look. Grab it in mauve, black or white and don’t expect to fit too much, because the interior space is quite limited.
6. street Level Reversible Faux Leather Tote
Headed back to the office this fall? This large tote has tons of space for your laptop, notebook and everything in between. Outside of the office, this sizeable style is ideal for those of us who overload our purses with all of those “just in case” items.
8. rebecca Minkoff Micro Edie Quilted Leather Crossbody Bag
Best Statement Bag
We all need at least one statement bag in our arsenals, and this quilted emerald green number is at the top of our list. It looks small in size, but has a surprisingly spacious interior to hold all of the things you need. While we love this for fall, it’s also the perfect choice for any and all holiday soirees.
9. street Level Mini Reversible Faux Leather Tote
Best Everyday Bag
This guy is big enough for your day-to-day essentials and can be worn as a crossbody or held as a handbag. It also comes handy with a wristlet for your cards if you don’t want to bring the full bag (or are prone to losing your wallet in the dark abyss of a large tote).
