We mostly cover the super-expensive stuff around here, but Megs and I talk all the time about ensuring that we don't get too caught up in the four- and five-figure fabulousness and skimp on more accessible options. After all, those three-figure bags make up a lot of what I personally carry, as they likely do for many of you—thousands of dollars for a bag is a big ask for almost anyone. Megs recently profiled nearly a dozen up-and-coming brands, most of them contemporary-priced, that she found on social media, and today I'm here to offer two dozen options for spring.
It's an exciting time to be shopping for a bag in a three-figure price range. Not only is there a strong stable of established brands like Coach and Kate Spade, but the internet has allowed tons of indie designers to flourish, which gives the market enormous variation and breadth. Below, check out bags from our favorite standbys and the up-and-comers alike.
