1. This versatile messenger bag
Both stylish and comfortable to wear, this practical messenger bag is made of sustainable nylon materials. It contains plenty of inner zip and slip pockets along with dual exterior pockets stashed away under a flap closure. Available in black and olive green, it's large enough to fit an iPad and has an adjustable crossbody strap.
“This bag is everything I need it to be,” one 5-star reviewer writes. “It has many compartments for all of my needs. It cleans easily. I love it!”
2. This on-trend shoulder bag
Shoulder bags are the "it" bag for a reason this season. Like this top-selling version from Kate Spade, they allow your outfit to take center stage while offering a roomy compartment for all your stuff. This ‘90s-inspired bag is made with a mix of smooth and pebbled leather and contains a zip-top closure along with interior card slots. It's available in black, cream and yellow.
“I absolutely love this bag, and the fact that it is so trendy but classic at the same time,” one shopper writes. “I also love the materials and design. I prefer items like this that are very subtle about the branding and that don't have too many elements so you can easily match with many outfits.”
3. This petite crossbody purse
If you’re looking for a practical option that oozes elegance, the Knott Flap Crossbody is your match, with six card slots and exterior slip pocket to keep you organized. As a unique take on a bow, it features a leather tie at the base of the snap flap closure. To offset the solid color pebbled leather, which is available in four versatile hues, the inner lining contains Kate Spade’s classic floral jacquard print.
"I love the style and look of this crossbody," one reviewer writes. Another adds that it makes for an excellent gift.
4. This leopard-print tote
Whether your day consists of work or play, this medium-sized tote is a solid carryall for your belongings, like a laptop, binder, lunch and more. It’s made partly of cheetah-print recycled polyester and it features a drop zip-top closure that looks sleek and discrete. The main compartment contains both a zippered and slip pocket, and it has an optional strap to carry it crossbody-style.
“I love this bag,” one 5-star reviewers writes. “It’s the cutest, and I get so many compliments. It has enough room for everything I need to carry. I also like that you can wipe it down.”
5. This cute card holder
If you don’t have much to carry, save your back—and wallet—with this mini card holder. It’s made of woven jacquard sourced from northern Italy, and its two card slots and two slip pockets are sealed by a snap closure. The adjustable gold-toned chain looks great draped over your shoulder but can also be removed to use as a wallet in a larger bag.
“This is a gorgeous, sweet little bag,” one reviewer writes. “Love it! It’s great quality and well-made.”
6. This chic laptop bag
It’s not often you find a roomy laptop bag that also doubles as a regular purse. This one is made of a scratch-proof nylon that’s easy to clean and maintain and fits laptops up to 15 inches. Available in black, it has removable straps so you can carry it as a messenger bag or tote, and it contains both interior and exterior pockets for easy access to your belongings.
"This bag is amazing," one reviewer writes. "It holds my laptop, calendar, planner and laptop charger and it zips right up with no pulling as if the zipper is about to break off. I love it! I use it every day and it looks brand new."
7. This sleek croc crossbody
A dressy crossbody is the ideal way to upgrade your outfit while having a place to stash your essentials. This croc-embossed version comes in a glossy hunter green or burgundy leather and has a leather and gold chain strap along with a zip closure. Inside, a magnetic zip closure, two slip pockets and zippered compartments help you organize your belongings.
“I bought this because I wanted something just a little bit bigger than my Spencer Dome bag,” one reviewer writes. “This is the perfect size! It holds just what I need but not much more so it doesn't get heavy. I also love the color.”
8. This floral crossbody clutch
This small crossbody purse is a blessing when you just need a place to carry a phone and your outfit doesn’t have pockets. Available in a cream floral print, it has three interior card slots and two exterior card slots with a secure magnetic flap closure.
“This is the perfect crossbody,” one shopper writes. “It’s just big enough to hold my iPhone and my important cards and ID. It’s great if you need to run out of the house and don’t need to carry much.”
9. This tiny embroidered tote
Not sure whether your pursenal (a.k.a. your purse arsenal) needs a new crossbody or tote? Get the best of both worlds with this black mini convertible bag. It features unique floral embroidery woven onto its sustainable nylon material, a thick adjustable removable strap allowing you to wear it as a crossbody or handheld tote and a secure zip top closure.
“I walked into Kate Spade today not planning on buying a new purse but I saw this one and couldn’t leave without it," one person raves. "I love that it can be a handbag and a shoulder bag. I also love the material because it doesn’t seem like it would get too dirty. The detailing in the flowers is to die for and I love her and can’t wait to use her!”
