Even though the majority of our daily coverage at PurseBlog is dedicated to premier designer bags, we’re try to stay conscious of what’s going at at every level of the accessories market; after all, a big budget isn’t a qualifying factor in developing strong personal style.

$600 isn’t an objectively “affordable” price point for handbags, but compared to the designer market, it’s a much more attainable option for a much larger number of women who want to splurge a little bit. As we do every season, we’ve surveyed the Spring 2016 new arrivals and come up with more than two dozen bags that will freshen up your warm-weather wardrobe immediately. This year, the lineup is heavy on several trends that are popular across price points: saddle bags, bucket bags and pale pinks and blues.

Check out our favorites below and get your shopping lists ready.

Some of these bags are great. I especially like the DVF bag. Leave it to Rebecca Minkoff to rip off the new line of Altuzarra bags.

I thought of Altuzarra, too when I saw the Rebecca Minkoff bag.

I actually had to do a double take and scroll back up to check that that wasn’t Altuzarra.

I really wish that I liked the functionality of a bucket bag because that Vince Camuto is gorgeous.
My favorites were numbers 7, 12, and 16. The one that I would save up for, however, would be the Sancia Babylon. Beautiful.

That DVF bag is not bad at all. First I’ve seen Everlane featured here, there will be some that are glad to see it 🙂

Maybe they will stop calling me an anti-Everlane saboteur now! (Prob not though.)

I prefer these to the premier bags featured the other day.
Very nice options for light color bags. I don’t like to spend a lot on light colors as they get dirty and discolor easily.

Completely agree that these are far better than those ugly, overdone pre-fall bags.

I WANT THEM ALL. But the white/pale colors scare me. Especially after reading the blogpost about white stains.
I’m such a clumsy person that even not doing anything would stain 🙁

Wow. This IS a nice line up! Much better than the over designed junk in the premiere designer pre-fall post.

I like the Miguel & F+C totes. And several of the saddle bags are gorgeous. I wonder how the quality is in person. I may have to check some of these out. Thanks for the post.
