Handbags Under $150 That Look Crazy Expensive


The power of a polished handbag is second to none with regard to revving up daytime and evening looks alike. We’ve all witnessed its influence: A questionable purse can totally ruin a great outfit, yet a beautiful bag can transform a simple ensemble into something chic. Thus, it’s important to have a few trusty carryalls on hand—but we know it’s difficult to splurge on a designer version more than once in a blue moon. A little secret? You don’t have to, as the market is currently scattered with styles that only look crazy-expensive. The key is seeking out structured silhouettes boasting sumptuous fabrics and sophisticated details, and voilà—you have the makings of a bag fit for a queen. (No one has to know what you actually paid.) Here, 11 convincingly luxe bags under $150 to scoop up now.
