Cult Gia has some of the most unique purse and clutch designs that can take any outfit from boring to unique and thought out in the best way. I am obsessed with their ever changing styles and while these designs are not always the most practical bag, they certainly are the most captivating. You might be familiar with their cult classic the Hera Nano shoulder bag but have you seen their Bubble clutches? I bought the EOS clutch in Ivory for my bride era and I love it, I feel like it elevates any outfit by adding a dainty feminine yet bold touch.
If you are looking for something a bit more practical for the price (because lets be honest mid range bags are still expensive) then check out their Solene mini. This crystal embellished mini handbag is the perfect addition to your outfit if you are looking for that little extra pop! It's loud enough to make a statement but elegant enough to easily go with just about anything.
Staud is a brand I have recently become obsessed with, there is something that feels so nostalgic about their designs. if you are looking for a more practical everyday bag I love their Valerie Shoulder bag that is very much so giving elevated 90s mom on the go vibes. This bag is structured and simple but far from plain. On the flip side, if you are on the hunt for something more whimsical and honestly still v v practical but a lot more fun you HAVE to check out Staud's collection of Tommy bags they are constantly releasing different beaded patterns this bag reminds me of being a little girl playing dress up and I think it is the best understated if you know, you know addition to any outfit!
For me personally, I can not get enough of Jacqumus. Everyone has taken their turn making fun of these mini bags and how impractical they are but now that we've all had our laugh, lets be f*cking for real right now. The Le Chiquito bags are so gosh darn cute!! This to me is the perfect date night bag! She's fun, she's flirty, she's got that sexy structure we love from higher end bags and she is so small that she screams "i'm not picking up the tab, my man is. the only thing in this bag is lip gloss" The range of colors their bags comes in is also absolutely iconic.
I also love the Jacqumus Le Petit Panier Soli bag. Chadd got me one with yellow paneling for christmas last year and it is my favorite bag for a bougie beach trip. I think he really just wanted me to stop carrying my Prada duster to the pool but hey it got me a bag. A win is a win.
Sancia makes lovely understated high end bags that are elegant and structured at a great pricepoint! I am obsessed with the Yvette Halfmoon handbag, the structure of this bag is so chic and the shape is so unique. The oversized gold buckle accent really ties everything together and makes this bag perfect for date night or everyday. Dress her up or down, she understands the assaignment. If you are looking for something a little louder but still understated you have to check out the Anouk Tooth bag. Carry her as a clutch or wear her as a crossbody this lil lady speaks her mind. The gold detailing and tooth clasp are so fun and unique. I feel like this would be the perfect bag toy take on a trip to Europe when you are walking around all day and want a crossbody but dont want to take away from your outfit, you know?
Okay, one more just because I can't help myself. The Elea bag freatures the same tooth closure that we love on deep green leather contrasted with warm light brown leather binding. This bag is STUNNING. And for the price, yes please! The shoulder strap is removable so you can't wear her long or opt for the stockier short top handle and hold her lunch pail style. It's giving studious, chic, put together.
The Simon Miller Scrunch bag is really that girl. This bag screams cool girl. She is casual, she is elevated she is street style. The deep blue leather of this scrunched bag gives you the nostalgic feeling of your favorite pair of jeans.
The Ezra Quilt crossbody by All Saints is the perfect slouchy chic casual bag that doubles as your trendy low maintenance clutch. This bag is gorgeous and seamlessly transitions from everyday to girls night out.
If you haven't seen the bags that Coach has been coming out with recently you definitely need to check them out! This brand is making a major comeback and coming out with some really fun energetic bags, like the super bubbly Pillow Tabby Shoulder Bag 18. Seriously how cute is this bag! If you want something that feels more vintage but still very trendy check out the Mini Signature Jacquard Tabby Shoulder Bag the leather lining and patterned canvas this bag is adorable.
The Marc Jacobs cult classic Tote Bag is such fun casual bag with upscale structure. This bag is perfect if you want to embody the luxury low maintenance vibes of the Chloe Tote at a fraction of the price. I am obsessed with how chic and functional this bag is at the same time. I also cannot get enough of this Bucket Bag especially in Citronelle like oh my goodness how freaking cute! I'm living for the chunky drawstring and stitching details of this bag!
If you are on the search for a sleeker bag that can transition easily from day to night the J Marc Shoulder bag is your girl. This top flap shoulder bag complete with a heavy gold chain comes with a detachable canvas shoulder strap. Wear it as a casual cross body or a elegant shoulder bag.
Mansur Gavriel also makes a bucket bag but their take is much sleeker and sexier. The red interior sleek black patent leather and thin draw strings of this Mini Bucket Bag are so hot. Shes edgy and interesting with a long crossbody strap that makes her just casual enough for everyday. I also adore her louder sister the Mini Cloud Clutch. Wear her as a shoulder bag or tuck the strap away and tuck her under your arm as the sassiest date night clutch.
Olga berg is a great purse brand at a lower price point especially if you are wanting to really get crazy and outfit specific! I love how fun and loud this baby blue Marlo Ball Mesh handle bag is! The wooden accent is so unique in a sea of gold and silver hardware. I also Cannot stop admiring this emerald green Wendy Acrylic Bead bag! It's giving she is sophisticated but she is also a damn good time.
The Tiari bag by Lamarque is the perfect accessory if you are in your bride era! This cutie puff has a top magnet closure and a darling shoulder strap that adds an elegant element to this bubbly feathery evening bag. Another darling bridal option is this Diamante Baguette for the chic modern girl this bag is glamorous, no question about it! This is also a great option if you are obsessed with the Cult Gia nano shoulder bag this is also a great option at a smaller price tag.
