Let's face it: Handbags are expensive, but an expensive handbag can really make an outfit. The key—if you're a bag-snob on a budget—is splurging on one high-end bag that you can wear everyday. The problem with basic brown and black bags is that they won't always go with what you're wearing: It's hard to pull off brown shoes with a black bag and vice versa. Why not try a dark teal bag? Not only is it more compatible with brown and black shoes, but it also provides an inoffensive splash of color. Here are my picks for great teal bags at both designer and non-designer prices.
