Now that the weather’s changing we’ll be reaching for our autumn and winter wardrobe fashions. And if you’re planning to blow your budget on a statement coat or a pair of slouch boots, I’ve got the collection to cheat your way to statement handbags – I have 10 fashion bags that are rocking one of the key trends for AW’19 but are all under £100. There’s no breaking the budget here!
Created for Macy’s in the USA this bag is super versatile – ideal for work days or weekend days. With the current exchange rate, there isn’t much difference between the dollar and the pound. Expect to pay under £60 for this INC Kaiah Drum bag in croc effect.
For those who embrace colour and want to pop against any black leather wardrobe items, snap up this mustard buckle satchel bag with this season’s top handle trend, from River Island, available for £34. Bargain!
Winter wardrobes don’t mean you have to go back to black. And you don’t need to aim for clean lines either – go for soft edges, fur, ruffles and frills. This bag is a favourite as opting for a neutral bag will make you stand out from the crowd. From Dune, the Dteddy faux fur tote bag has the all important top handle. Price £80.
Need a new bag for work and your bag has to carry a fair load? Consider this animal print half moon tote bag from Marks & Spencer. As you can see it works with a casual look but will work just as well with heel and leather pencil skirt. Price £35.
We’ve got the evening bags sorted too. I mentioned soft edges, take this handbag that has the frills in beads. This bag is from the UK wide boutique Jigsaw, the beaded jellyfish evening bag. Price £79. Also available in yellow-green chartreuse colour.
And not forgetting the mini or micro sized bag trend. Here’s one from the catalogue retailer Next, in shocking pink, with a top handle. Ideal to accompany a little black dress for the upcoming party season. Price £24.
And now for the top of the class for the top handles. These are the staples of this season’s wardrobe – the croc effect, with a shape and size to allow you to go from day to night. Coming in at the cheapest of the bunch, from Mango £19.99.
Staying with Mango, another croc effect bag, but in brown which is this season’s shade. This bag is messenger shape style and is £35.99.
And for those who love a dramatic shape, head to Zara, this is the Mini City. This is priced at £29.99.
Last but by no means least is the oversized tote bag. And despite its size, you can get your hands on a large bag for under £100. From Oliver Bonas, the Nattie Shearling bag is available for £46.
There you have it, my best finds of the fashion bags for AW’19 and all under £100. Hope these bargains help you plan your winter wardrobe! And if you want to check in on the key trends for this season, check out AW’19 women’s fashion trends and the bags to match.
