Good bags don’t come cheap, and with all the price increases that we’ve been cataloging recently, they’re not going to be getting any less expensive any time soon. We know that not all of you (and, quite frankly, all of us) have the budget for a four-figure bag purchase every season, though, so we’ve done some digging into what can be had for less.

Although $600 is still a somewhat hefty budget for most of the world’s population, it can be hard to find attractive, well-made options at or below that price point, and it seems to only be getting harder. Below, we’ve listed the best the Internet has to offer. For Spring 2015, the clear winner is Tory Burch–the designer has refined and elevated her handbag line noticeably, largely doing away with huge logos in favor of modern, well-tailored totes and shoulder bags.

How beautiful is the simplicity of the Vince crossbody bag? Rebecca Minkoff impresses me with how quickly she is able to produce bags that are so on trend but she may need to retire some over exposed styles. She had several nice fringe bags in time for festival season this year. Tory Burch seems to be making some much needed changes to her bag offerings, I like her toggle messenger.

I love that purseblog now mentions lower priced brands more this past year like Dooney, Kate Spade and Fossil.

Thanks for this very nice post. As most bag lovers, who don’t have unlimited funds, I can’t afford to have a closet full of Chanel and Hermes. I would imagine the majority of us bag lovers buy an occasional luxury bag and then other less expensive bags to carry as well. For both our budget’s sake and our love of variety. It’s nice to see so many cute and affordable bags featured.
