Tis the season for homecoming, fall weddings and of course, holiday parties. And your fierce fit is simply not complete without an equally stunning handbag.
If you’re in the market now and feeling like high price tags are taking you down, we’ve got you. Our Editors have hunted through hundreds of online stores and sales and have pulled together a fantastic list of favorites they’ve found…all for less than a Benji.
Starting with this season’s biggest trend in party bags – the heart shape. We’ve seen them in all colors, sizes and prices (some of them serious yikes!). So when we spied this red, hard case beauty for under thirty dollars, we fell in love. Ultra-soft velvet exterior, you can sport it as a crossbody via the detachable chain strap, or carry it as a clutch using the rhinestone ring top snap closure.
Windsor, Love for Luxe Velvet Heart Clutch $26.90
Like a delicious, rainbow-colored hard candy, this sleek and modern minaudiere from Nina is hard to resist. The ombré gold to fuchsia is extremely versatile and will serve you well from season to season.
Nina, Brando Wine-Ombre Shine $78
Corsage styled purses are definitely a trend worth pursuing. This petalled version has a whole bouquet of multi-colored leather appliqué flower, along with a plethora of rhinestones for that perfect balance of pretty and bling.
Lulus, Boldest Bloom Embellished Clutch $58
This top handle bag proves that calling something a “black box” doesn’t have to be a bad thing. The quilted leather design and gold hardware remind us very much of a similar (and far, far more expensive) handbag brand. Lucky, lucky you, this one is all yours for less than thirty bucks!
Windsor, All the Ways Circular Crossbody Bag $24.90
Take the phrase “put a bow on it” literally with this lovely lilac leather clutch by Jijou Capri. Full disclosure? This bag normally retails for nearly $200, but we found it on sale and ready to be yours, for under $70. YW!
Jijou Capri, Bow Leather Clutch $69.99
The feathered bag phenom has been going strong since S/S so it’s no surprise to see it in high demand for the holiday. Never fear though, this fab, chain-link version’s feathers are all faux.
Windsor, Stay Fab Feather Bag $25.90
All that glitters isn’t always gold. Case in point, this silver sequined satchel bag from Hat Attack. We love the easy drawstring closure and the silky, metallic silver braided strap, both give off a cool, party Boho vibe.
Hat Attack, Party Pouch $33
(on Sale NOW from $102)
In our defense…sometimes all that glitters, well, is gold. This tiny tote is made up entirely of gold beading and really, couldn’t be prettier for the price.
Windsor, Gorgeous Glitz Beaded Handbag $18
(on Sale NOW from $36.90)
If you’re one of this season’s fashionistas that have gravitated towards the celestial print trend, then this is your perfect party bag. And at under forty bucks? Truly the stars have aligned in your favor…
Lulus, Stars in the Sky Black Velvet Crossbody $38
Looking for something that’s lightweight, super durable and looks great for your social engagements? This soft buffed gold wristlet looks beautifully delicate but is actually long-lasting (in fact they guarantee it).

You seriously will not believe the price we found on this rosy metal mesh bag. Featuring dual O-ring handles, a top zipper closure, a metal mesh exterior, and a smooth-lined interior, this is champagne taste on a beer budget.

Your friends will be jelly for sure when they see this chic, quilted, jelly shoulder bag on your arm. And when they ask, they’ll really be jealous of the price.

Talk about pretty in pink! This faux leather lovely is a Barbiecore party bag dream. Large enough to stash all your essentials…including that key to the Dreamhouse…
Windsor, Crowd Favorite Ruffled Shoulder Bag $18
For the girl who loves her pearl. This ballet pink pearl clutch combines artificial pearls and rhinestones for plenty of bling.
Nina, Dietrich Pearl Rose $78
And finally, on our list, this spherical beauty is a real showstopper that you can carry on your wrist (courtesy of the O ring handle) or add the chain link shoulder strap and go hands free all night. No matter how you style it, all eyes will be on you.
