Listen, no one loves splurging on a bag more than yours truly. But that doesn’t make it economical. As part of my “new year, new me” resolution, I’ve taken to my shopping habits with a practical lens. And I’ve already found that there are worth-it bags that don’t break the shiny, new budget.
I set out on a hunt for sophisticated, expensive-looking bags. Handbags are typically a slightly more expensive piece, so I capped the search at $300. I turned to Nordstrom for my hunt and my cart is now overfloweth with polished woven bags, faux-leather tote bags, chic shoulder bags, and adorable mini bags that are new-budget-approved.
It would be wrong not to share the wealth (of knowledge), so I’ve included the best 21 handbags that will have you feeling rich and looking expensive.
