Anyone who’s ever been on a budget (which is pretty much all of us) knows how hard it is to find a fashionable bag at a relevant price. Lately, though, that pursuit has been a bit easier. Not long ago, we rounded up a group of sub-$300 bags that are worth your attention, and the Coach bags we featured earlier this week are all pretty wallet-friendly. If you’re still looking, though, look no further than the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Bag. It’s simple, versatile and totally chic.
If you don’t like the green we’ve chosen above (keep in mind that it’s the Pantone 2013 Color of the Year), fret not. This sleek bag comes in every color from basic black to sunshine-bright yellow, and they all ring up at exactly $358. That’d be a fair price for almost any bag, but for this one in particular, it’s a steal. The bag’s subtly textured saffiano leather can take a beating and still look great, and the shape is classic enough that you could carry this design anywhere from the office to the park. There’s no extraneous nonsense going on with this bag – its lines are clean, and except for a small logo, there’s nothing to distract from the gorgeous color. The added bonus of that, of course, is that there’s nothing about this bag that’ll make it look dated in a season or two. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $358.
