As we’re all well aware (and at times, far too aware), designer handbags are, by their very nature, expensive. Often prohibitively so. As much as we think it’s often worth it to save your pennies and splurge on that $2,000 bag you want, sometimes that’s just not in the cards, no matter how much you restrict your outside-of-the-house activities and how closely you follow our 18 Easy GIF Steps. Or maybe you’re not sold on $2,000 handbags as a concept quite yet and simply prefer to keep your expenditures in a more comfortable realm. Either way, we’ve got your back.

As we do every season, we’ve rounded up what we think are the finest handbags in the land for under $600. Every season, that gets harder to do – the prices of contemporary bags are inching up just like everything else, but we’ve persevered. ‘Tis our duty. Check out our choices below, which range from stalwart favorites to brand new designs, and remember that ShopBop, one of our favorite sources for bags in this price range, is offering 25% off almost any purchase with code INTHEFAMILY25 through tomorrow, October 17.

I used to love Botkier, but am I the only one who notices a markedly lower quality in her bags than seasons past? I just can’t bring myself to spend the money on her bags anymore, even the sample sale. It’s too bad, because I was a devout follower.
