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.
