We love expensive designer bags as much as the next girl (even if it means just loving them from a distance), but let’s face it, the average stylephile would rather spend their hard-earned moolah on other things like an out-of-the-country trip, monthly mortgage or a spiffy new gadget. But this doesn’t mean that you have to completely compromise style. There are equally gorgeous bag finds sans the hefty price tag.
In fact, we have stumbled upon some of these vintage-style bags. We are featuring stylish and timeless bags you’d want to get your hands on.
1. Believe it or Garnet Bag, $57.99, ModCloth
What draws attention to this retro bag is its ruby red color. It’s so bold and makes a great statement that you’d want to dress down just to let this bag take and bask under the spotlight. How to wear this? Try a pretty 40’s flapper dress or a 60’s full-skirted dress.
2. Rewind Vintage Affairs Vintage Gold Bag, $266.00
The price isn’t that “mainstream” but this is real vintage we are talking about here. It also doesn’t hurt that it has a nice curvy shape with a pretty petal-like flap and gold-tone materials.
3. Crimson All Over Bag, $64.99, ModCloth
A faux alligator purse in shocking crimson color is just what you need to add a bit more “oomph” to your already-impressive ensemble. With its bold glossy color and textured surface, you can skip wearing other accessories.
4. Pizzazz You Wish Bag, $71.99, ModCloth
By this time, you have most likely caught the mint bug. It’s a virus spreading amongst fashion lovers and is characterized by severe hording of mint-colored clothes, shoes and accessories. Here’s something to slake that addiction – a dainty mint-colored purse with silver kiss-lock details.
5. Fresh and Green Bag, $64.99, ModCloth
This should go so well with so many pastel ensembles. Pair it with a soft yellow or pink pleated maxi skirt. A pair of pastel oxfords will cap off the look.
Like I said, you don’t have to sacrifice style over budget. These bags will do well in amplifying your looks without busting the bank.
