Handbags aren’t simply a fashion accessory, they are practically an extension of a girl’s arm. But they can be pricey. If you want a cute handbag to carry all your necessities that won’t force you to starve yourself for the next few weeks, we have you covered. Plus at these prices you can afford more than one.
Camel bags are a year-long fashion staple. Their light colour makes them appropriate in spring and summer but the rich tone is also perfectly suitable for autumn and winter. This leather-look bag is casual enough to use daily but nice enough to take to business events. The large size will accommodate all your belongings. Better yet, the lining is made of recycled materials, making this pick friendly on mother earth too (Asos, £64.)
A dash of mint
The grey skies of winter call for a little colour. We say add it through your handbags. This creamy mint bag is perfect for running errands or for a night out with your girlfriends. It has both handles and a shoulder strap, making it versatile enough for every preference. Not a fan of mint? There are other colours too and you’ll probably want all of them (H&M, £25.)
A classic black bag doesn’t have to be boring. This studded bag provides just a touch of sparkle and interest to an otherwise plain design. The geometrical pattern makes the bag pop without causing it to clash with the rest of your outfit. You may find yourself carrying this bag more often than you think (Topshop, £40.)
All that glitters
This gold, sequined clutch may not be your most practical handbag but it might just be your new favourite. This little bag will be the perfect accessory to your little black dress or even on your wedding day. It might be small but it will still hold all the essentials you need for a night out with the girls. Or a date night with someone special (Dorothy Perkins, £25.)
