It doesn’t happen that often, but sometimes I come across a bag while working on something and just can’t get it out of my head. That’s the case with the Kara Tie Shoulder Bag; I discovered it while looking for a handful of affordable black everyday bags, and it struck me as a particularly great option.

The rich textures that make up a cold-weather wardrobe are undeniably more luxurious than the thin textiles and woven straws of the summer months, but anything that luxe comes with a price. Because we believe in looking for good values even when shopping high-end things, we’re big fans of shearling, and this winter’s crop of bags is full of it.

A woman’s handbag isn’t just part of her wardrobe; the right bag is a daily companion and partner in crime, accompanying a woman nearly everywhere and acting as a chic vessel for necessities and indulgences alike.

Even if you’re not a fan of chilly mornings or pumpkin-flavored things, you have to admit fall’s cozy wardrobe is a welcome change after months in cotton and linen. And we’re not just talking about sweaters and coats; fall bags are a wonderful opportunity to add rich textures to your look, and Amazon Fashion has a wide range of beautiful options, including bags in calf hair, velvet, suede and quilted leather.

If you’re an American fashion shopper, you probably own something from Rag & Bone. The brand has firmly cemented itself as a solid source of elevated, seasonless basics that are somehow cooler than all the other basics from all the other brands.

If you think of Tory Burch bags and can only call to mind logo totes, you’ve been wrong for a while now. The brand’s runway bags, in particular, have been interesting and highly detailed for years now, and doing that at a relatively accessible price point is always worthy of note.

Every season, we dig around for the best values available to designer bag shoppers looking to keep their expenditures solidly in the three-figure range, and every season, it gets a little tricker. Prices are forever heading northward, and even when a brand decides to resist those market forces, it can risk compromising the quality of the materials it’s able to use.
