Are you tired of lusting over Chanel Boy Bags, embroidered Gucci’s, and Dior’s latest saddle bag? Are you counting your pennies and contemplating a splurge on a drool-worthy designer bag? Spending your hard-earned cash on a designer bag can make for a great Instagram photo, but is also the equivalent of three months’ rent in Dublin City. No, thank you.
As Hermès Birkin bags are worth a lifetime of savings and Fendi clutches with eye-watering price tags have gradually lost their cool, we’re looking for more contemporary options that won’t break your bank account; but are just as fabulous. The rise of mid-range bags is increasing. I’ll be honest though, designers didn’t provide a huge selection under 300 bucks, but thank you Marc Jacobs, See by Chloé and Coach for being somewhat reasonable. There’s some gorgeous options about when you know where to look (hello, here!). From chic classic black, red-brick rouge, and rainbow brights, designers are churning out the best bags of the season; at affordable prices. Ladies, did you ever think finding your IT bag wouldn’t have to haunt your dreams?
So if you’re feeling the winter woes, elevate your workwear wardrobe and everyday accessories by being both economical and stylish all at the same time, and start compiling your Christmas wish list right here with the best bags under €300. Check out my edit of some super cool styles that are super Instagramable (of course!). Happy shopping!
