Ever feel like your dream of owning a designer handbag might never come true? For most of us, owning that IT-bag is an obsession but dropping upwards of $1000 on an accessory isn’t something we can do on the regular….   


Shopping smart for designer finds is something the fash pack excels at so we took a few cues from our favourite bloggers and influencers and went on the hunt for cute designer purses ringing in at under $500.   

This was actually much easier than we anticipated and we discovered new-season styles as seen on celeb Instagram feeds, fashion blogs and in our favourite glossies.  

So whether you’re lusting after a sleek classic tote, statement belt bag, cool clutch or a boho basket bag, consider investing in one of our next-level affordable finds.    

Browse the edit below for gorgeous styles from the likes of Cult Gaia, See by Chloé, Henri Bendel, Karl Lagerfeld and more…

Though we’re loath to say it, for a handful of occasions, a designer tote isn’t the ideal choice of bag. Take your trip to the airport for example. A teeny tiny Chanel number might look incredible, but it’s not the most practical option…   


Seasoned travellers know that for a relaxed trip through customs and a comfortable flight, it’s all about organisation – think compartments, clear wallets for your make-up and plenty of space to fit your essentials.

Plenty of luxury and affordable brands have cottoned onto the fact that travelling can be stressful and that the right prep can make or break a long-haul flight.   

In fact, MADE.COM has recently launched a selection of slick accessories that make travelling a whole lot easier and the likes of Burberry, Balenciaga and Gucci have gotten on board too with roomy backpacks and luxe splash-proof wash bags.  

So, before you jet off on your summer holidays, consider travelling smarter and packing that designer shoulder bag into your suitcase. Opting for an airport and flight-friendly accessory will see you arriving in your destination looking stylish and ten times more chilled.   

Browse our edit below for the best travel bags for every trip, style and budget…

The belt bag is one of those trends that shouldn’t work but really does. Those infamous styles by Gucci and Miu Miu dominated Instagram last year and put hands-free accessories back on the map…   


The ‘90s feels quickly took over the street style game with designers including Versace, Pucci, JW Anderson and Marc Jacobs creating iterations of the fanny pack and soon enough, luxe-looking affordable options were out in force too.

We decided to road test both designer and affordable belt bags to find out whether a Gucci bag is really worth the investment, or whether it’s better to save… 

SPEND

Belt bags are not going anywhere so this will be an investment you'll enjoy for many years to come. Whether it's winter, fall or in the middle of summer you know you can wear this bag with anything in closet. The versatility is strong with this one.

Furthermore, an investment piece from the likes of Gucci or Prada is always a good idea because these babies last forever. The quality of a designer handbag is what makes it so timeless.

Our final reason for loving the high-end options? They’re all a little different. A Gucci Marmot is a Gucci Marmot but there so many iterations to choose from. Opt for embellished styles, a touch or velvet or classic quilting to match your wardrobe and your personality. There’s just something so great about feeling original. 

SAVE

No matter how amazing the product is, it’s great to have options. Plus, with this accessory fixed to your waist, other people are far less likely to notice its lack of designer logo. This is an excuse to double up and opt for a few different colors and styles.

Why choose one bag when you can invest in three or four? Go for a heart-shaped version for date night, a boxy style for the weekend and a cool embellished piece for festival season and your summer vacations. 

Sure these pieces might not stand the test of time in the same way as a designer belt bag, but you can be certain you’ll have a style for every occasion and no one will be any the wiser.

If you don’t own a basket bag you can’t sit with us. Seriously though, we love a boho or vintage-inspired accessory and the humble basket bag is top of our list. Loved by celebs and influencers everywhere, a woven handbag is an easy piece to rock – especially with your summer line-up…  


We’ve seen iterations by Insta-famous favourite Cult Gaia, Loewe and A.P.C and plenty of gorgeous dupes on the high street too, which begs the question: when it comes to raffia totes, wicker baskets and woven clutches, should one spend or save?

We road tested high-end and affordable basket bags to find out if this is one of the pieces worth investing in or heading to the high street to cop…   

SPEND

As with all designer bags, there’s no denying the quality of a label-made piece. With a designer basket bag you’re paying for the sturdy straps, top notch stitching and decent lining. Proper hardware and a clasp or zip that works seamlessly is a plus in this case too. 

The other obvious advantage is being able to rock an instantly recognisable IT-bag that you’ll be able to use for years to come – let’s be honest, the basket is never going out of style.   

SAVE 

It’s not like basket bags are few and far between, there are a ton of gorgeous options available for under £50, however, if the high street doesn’t float your boat you can find options by more niche designers too, great if you don’t fancy sporting the same style as everyone else. 

Plus, a more affordable raffia or wicker bag might not be perfectly finished but it’s much easier to pull off a dupe like this than a faux Chloe or Gucci number – heaven forbid.  Ready to spend or save? Shop our edit below to find the basket bag of your dreams…

A well-crafted bag is the perfect daytime accessory for men that are always on the go. Sure, it’s easy to just rock a sporty backpack, but why go for one when instead, you could opt for something guaranteed to take your outfit up a notch. From messenger bags to backpacks and briefcases, we’ve selected the best for the new season, so you don’t have to… 


The multipurpose backpack

Go for a black leather backpack for a casual day outfit that you can sport from the office to the gym. Opt for a bag with different compartments so that you can safely store your laptop away from your other essentials. 

The updated briefcase 

For a more classic look, choose a briefcase in a neutral color versatility is key for a successful business wardrobe. 

The messenger bag 

Bigger, bolder and definitely a more creative look, go for a messenger bag that you can easily hold from classes to the gym to drinks.
