If you are trying to build your wardrobe on a budget, one of the best ways is through handbags and other accessories. A different handbag can completely change the look of your outfit.
Today, let’s talk about some hot deals on cool handbags. These four essential handbag styles can go a long way in your wardrobe.
Exotic skin handbags are extremely hot right now. But you don’t need to spend a fortune on an authentic python or crocodile bag. Instead, grab a croc-embossed bag in a bold color to jazz up your wardrobe. This Lauren Merkin Tatum Croc-Embossed Clutch comes in a beautiful shade of blue and is marked down from $325 to just $130 at Endless.com.
A glossy patent bag can add a touch of shine to any outfit. Choose a neutral color such as black or taupe, if you are using it as your everyday bag. This pleated faux patent bag from Simply Vera Vera Wang is available for 50% off at Kohl’s, marked down from $89 to $44.50.
Slouchy Hobo Bag
A roomy hobo is the perfect carry-all bag. It’s perfect for casual wear. You can find hobos in every fabric and size imaginable. Slouchy suede hobos are perfect for fall. They match up well with jeans and boots. A more structured hobo can also be a versatile piece in your wardrobe, as you can carry them for almost any occasion. This Hinge Slouchy Suede Hobo is 33% off at Nordstrom, marked down from $198 to $129.90.
When they ask, “Paper or plastic?” at the grocery store, you should say “Neither.” Instead, bring along a canvas tote bag or two to carry your groceries. You can find these tote bags in all shapes and sizes — most carry 2-4 times more than your average plastic bag. Right now you can get this Cotton Canvas Make a Difference Tote for just $2.50 at Amazon.
