Top 10 Designer Handbags You Can Actually Afford


Designer handbags are one of the first big investments for many a fashionista. Something about carrying a big name brand around with you all the time just makes you feel legitimately stylish. But a single purse is unlikely to be appropriate for every situation.

Luckily, Last Call is cutting up to 75% off a selection of handbags, with prices starting at $6. That's the best discount we've seen on bags at Last Call. Shipping starts at $5, but orders of $99 or more receive free shipping via coupon code "LCSHIP". We've rounded up 10 designer bags to suit various needs, so you'll always be prepared.

Designer Bags for Any Occasion

Everyday Errands

Cynthia Rowley Cori Colorblock Neoprene Tote Bag in Sky Blue/Lavender or White/Black for $42 ($28 off)

Neoprene is durable and waterproof, so this tote is perfect for those busy days when you can't be too precious with your bag.

Work or School

French Connection Jill Drawstring Striped Bag for $39 (a low by $27)

This drawstring bag allows you to access supplies or snacks throughout the day without worrying about the noise of zip or snap closure.

Movies and Shows

L.A.M.B. Idelia Striped Suede Tote Bag for $262.50 ($87 off) EXPIRED

This tote has metal feet to protect your bag from any sticky gunk on the floor, and if one were inclined to stash snacks inside, they'd easily fit.

Evening Events

Valentino Satin Flap Evening Clutch Bag for $982.50 ($327 off) EXPIRED

Sometimes only a fancy clutch will do, and this bag's luxe material and crystal accents make it suitable for such occasions.

Quick Trips

Halston Heritage Metallic Leather Mini Bucket Bag for $84 (a low by $5)

When you have to run out for something and need just your keys, wallet, and phone, this shiny mini bucket bag won't feel like overkill.

Overnight Travel

Cynthia Rowley Alex Duffle Bag in Sky Blue, Silver, Citron, or Black for $66 (a low by $1)

There's no reason you can't pack in style, even when a traditional suitcase is too big for the job.

Dinner Date

French Connection Yvette Strappy Clutch Bag for $57 (a low by $6)

This clutch is posh enough to hang on your chair at an upscale restaurant, but it's also not too fussy for a more casual establishment.

At the Gym

Cynthia Rowley Brody Backpack in Gold or Cream/Silver for $54 (a low by $59)

A backpack will accommodate workout clothes, a water bottle, and any other exercise accoutrements you require. Plus, it'll be a relief to just strap it on when your arms are dead afterward.

Super Shopper

French Connection Vanessa Sequined Clutch in Iridescent, Deco, or Camo for $36 (a low by $15)

Mall day means you're going to be loaded down with bags already, so a cute but lightweight clutch — with a chain you can toss over your shoulder — will be just right.

Friend Time

Versace Jeans Tassel Zip-Top Tote Bag in Red or Black for $243.75 ($81 off) EXPIRED

When you and your pals head out on the town, you'll need a bag that's big enough to actually hold all your accessories, but not so oversized that you hate lugging it around.
