15 Hot Designer Bags You're Going to Want to Wear All Year Long
When it comes to bag shopping, there are a few ways to go. More affordable options are always a good idea, or you can opt for a classic designer name that has been around for decades. But, if you want to go in a slightly different direction, we're seeing a lot of what we like to call mid-range brands and designers pop up. These fresh new names have a ton of great bags at more accessible price points. Plus, we can't stop seeing them all over Instagram and TikTok.
A few of our favorite designer bags under $1000 include Wandler, Cult Gaia, and even some that have been around for awhile like A.P.C. and Mansur Gavriel. What do all these brands have in common? They're a great way to get something cool that's made with quality materials and leathers, without shelling out thousands. Yes, these bags are still pricey and often over $500, but they're also mostly under a thousand. Ahead, we curated a list of our favorite picks for fall, and they all are under $800. From clutches to crossbody bags, we guarantee you'll fall in love with at least one.
A Black Bag: Tory Burch 151 Mercer Small Crescent Bag
You can never go wrong with a classic black bag. We're loving this Tory Burch 151 Mercer Small Crescent Bag ($378) because it actually has three straps. There's a chain shoulder strap, a leather shoulder strap, and a big crossbody that can be attached. Consider this the ultimate in versatility.
A Crossbody Bag: Golden Goose Pony Leo Star Bag
Need a great crossbody bag? This Golden Goose Pony Leo Star Bag ($630) is a chic camera bag silhouette, and it fits all your essentials. The animal print is so fun, and goes with everything. Plus, this is a perfectly sized travel bag for all your summer adventures.
A Mini Bag: Jacquemus Le Chiquito Moyen Bag
Looking for a summer mini bag? This Jacquemus Le Chiquito Moyen Bag ($745) is a cult classic, and highly coveted. It comes in a bunch of different colors, but we're obsessed with the light green. Plus, it also has a crossbody strap.
A Neutral Bag: Tory Burch Lee Radziwill Petite Bag
This Tory Burch Lee Radziwill Petite Bag ($498) looks like it should be triple the price. The silhouette is iconic and elegant, and we love the top handle and crossbody strap. Plus, it also comes in black and white.
An Evening Clutch: Cult Gaia Esme Clutch
Going to a summer wedding? You'd be wise to stay away from a white dress, but a white bag is fair game in our book. This Cult Gaia Esme Clutch ($698) is so elegant and cool. It has a seashell look that's perfect for summer, and goes with everything in your closet.
A Sparkly Bag: Cult Gaia Hera Nano Rhinestone Shoulder Bag
Going out this summer? Add some fun to your look with a sparkly bag. This Cult Gaia Hera Nano Rhinestone Shoulder Bag ($428) also comes in blue and green, but we love the classic silver rhinestones.
A Two Toned Bag: JW Anderson The Bumper Moon
We love that the strap on this JW Anderson The Bumper Moon ($650) is adjustable, so you can have it lengthened or shortened to suit your needs. Plus, the combination of the tan and purple is so unexpected and cool. It'll be the bag you reach for again and again.
A Statement Bag: STAUD Tommy Beaded Bag
The print on this STAUD Tommy Beaded Bag ($250) will surely make a statement. We already want to wear it with a little white dress for summer, and jeans and a sweater for fall. It's also the perfect size, holding all your essentials without being too large.
A Classic Bag: Anine Bing Dana Bag
This Anine Bing Dana Bag ($549) is as classic as it gets. The top handle is so chic, and we love the minimal clasp. Plus, it's made of textured leather, so it's less likely to get scuffed and ruined. Consider this the ultimate boss bag. It also has a removable crossbody strap.
A Western Bag: Golden Goose Rodeo Bag Small Bag
If you want a crossbody with a little bit of edge, this Golden Goose Rodeo Bag Small Bag ($770) is your best bet. The brown leather is timeless, but it also comes in black leather and tan suede. It's perfectly in line with the western trend, but people will be asking you if it's vintage, since it looks so cool.
A Versatile Bag: Wandler Georgia Bag
The Wandler Georgia Bag ($528, originally $880) just might be one of our favorite choices. The shoulder strap is the perfect length, but it also comes with a longer crossbody strap as well. It also comes in a few shades, but you can never go wrong with green.
A Colorful Bag: Mansur Gavriel Swing Shoulder Bag
A pop of color is always a good idea, and having it on your bag is an easy way to add something extra to your look. We love how soft and unstructured this Mansur Gavriel Swing Shoulder Bag ($487, originally $695) is. Plus, it's on sale, so grab it while you can!
