A new season always has me itching for a new bag (or two). The good news: there’s no shortage of fab options out there at the moment – and they all ring in at under $500.

When it comes to bang-for-your-buck bags, Staud remains a tip-top favorite for me. The designs are all super chic and come in the most unique shapes (see: here and here) – and the majority of them are in the $300 range. (This tote is a go-with-everything piece and it’s actually under $300!) For summer, their clear “Shirley” bag is the must-have.

Another favorite brand of mine is Mansur Gavriel. From the bucket bags to their crossbody totes, their designs are are all gorgeous and timeless.

Other bags I’m eyeing at the moment include this tote from Simon Miller (obsessed with that acrylic handle!) and this chic structured mini from Danse Lente. Of course, no warm-weather bags collection would be complete without a good basket bag. If that’s what you’re after, try here, here, here ($115!), and here.
