When most people think designer, the first thing that comes to mind is price point. Buying a real designer bag is often daunting because they’re expensive, so we’re here to help.
Buying designer doesn’t always have to mean spending the big bucks, so we found 13 designer bags that you can add to your rotation for less than $1000. For this article we chose all black bags because, let’s face it, black goes with basically everything. Black bags are timeless, you will always be able to dress them up or down, and they never go out of style. We are here to help you find the cutest bags at the best prices. You can find Chloe, Saint Laurent, Jacquemus, and even Balenciaga on a budget.
First we have belt bags! With more and more 90s trends reappearing we are seeing a rise in the belt bag. It’s convenient, out of the way, and let’s not forget — it’s a cute accessory for any outfit.
This is an upscale, more traditional belt bag. The silver chunky chain on this bag is on trend for 2021, and this bag can be dressed up or dressed down.
We picked two because, let’s face it, two is better than one. The Kaia Belt Bag is a little smaller and could be a super cute accessory to pair with jeans or even a dress. The Lou Belt Bag is more of a traditional size, featuring the signature quilting and a matte black logo. It can be worn with almost anything!
This belt bag is sleek and modern. It shows off a more sophisticated silhouette and features gold hardware.
The next few bags we found were chain wallets. These bags are super convenient because they’ll hold all the necessities without being as bulky as a full-sized bag. We recommend this style for a night out or even to carry in a larger bag to use as a wallet.
This bag features gold hardware and the center of the bag features a gold padlock and key with the signature Chloe logo. This bag is sleek yet elegant.
This bag is simple and will remain a timeless piece for years to come. Not too flashy yet still making the statement of a designer piece, you get the best of both worlds. The gold tone hardware adds a nice touch to be able to dress this bag up when needed.
Loewe is an up-and-coming brand stealing the spotlight in recent years. Known for their high quality leather, this bag really shows it with the pebbled grained calfskin leather. The bag itself features detachable straps meaning this is a two for one — you can use this bag as a chain wallet or you can hold it as a clutch.
You can never go wrong with a crossbody bag. They’re convenient, cute, carry everything you need, and most importantly they don’t irritate your shoulders the way bigger bags do. This style is typically larger than the chain wallet and belt bag but smaller than your typical tote or shoulder bag, making them great everyday bags.
The Gucci Marmont collection seems to have made its way into everyone’s closet at this point. This bag, still on trend, features a unique bucket bag silhouette and unlike most of the bags featured, this one is velvet. This whole bag is unique in itself but also very versatile when it comes to styling.
This bag takes up a unique shape but one familiar when looking at Balenciaga. It features black hardware and a removable side strap, so you can wear it crossbody or carry it from the top handle. The black hardware makes this bag super versatile when styling, allowing you to wear it with almost anything. The croc embossed leather makes this bag chic and fun — not your typical black purse!
This bag follows the classic Saint Laurent quilted pattern in their pebbled grain calfskin leather. It comes with removable straps, so it could also be thrown in a larger bag and used to keep things you always need to have on-hand. Then, when you need, you can grab it and go — without needing to carry your large bag with you.
This bag is part of the signature Faye collection from Chloe featuring the recognizable gold ring. The mix between tonal burnished edges throughout makes this bag unique to itself. To top it off, the chainlink strap adds texture, but remains comfortable thanks to the leather padding up top.. It also allows you to carry it as a bracelet bag.
This bag features gold hardware with an ornate gold ‘V’ resting on the front of the bag. It is perfect for an evening out to dress up an outfit, and the chain on this bag can also be easily removed to create a high-end clutch.
