The Under-$40 Bags I'm Telling All My Friends to Buy for Spring

There are a lot of good things about our Who What Wear collection for Target. The clothing, shoes, and accessories themselves; the unbeatable price point; the size inclusivity; and sheer convenience of being able to purchase pieces at Target stores or online. Not to mention the fact that we drop new items every month and are constantly tackling the latest trends. However, with all these positives come one little negative: the fact that the best pieces are bound to sell out.

That’s why when we get a really good drop, I make sure to tell my friends about it; I’m in no mood to hear their complaints when they can’t buy the skirt, heels, or bag they’re seeing all over Instagram—or on me. So what am I gushing about these days? Among other things, it’s our spring handbag collection. These nine purses are so good I don’t even know which to choose for myself. To see them in action, and to do some shopping before they’re gone, just keep scrolling.

This shade of yellow goes surprisingly well with most colors, making it an easy addition to your wardrobe.

This sparse floral pattern is the type you can never get sick of.

After investing heavily in the mock-croc trend for fall and winter, I for one, am happy it's not going away for spring.

As someone who loves to wear all-black regardless of the season, I can tell you how useful a black woven bag is in spring and summer.

I love this belt bag because it can be worn crossbody as well as around your waist, depending on what works better with your outfit.

Everyone needs a good structured tote for work, and this one is the perfect color for spring.

This bag is like a cool culmination of so many classic details.

Is it too early to start planning my summer vacation outfits?
