5 Casual Handbags Under $50

February 28th, 2008

Feeling the love for this collection? Here’s more information about it.

In this era of status handbags and designer logos, it’s easy to overlook the weekend workhorse handbag: the casual bag.  You know the one.  The bag that totes your sunglasses and dog-eared book to the park.  The bag that stashes all of your bite-size purchases at the mall.  The bag that carries your chocolate bars and cheese wedges back from the grocery store. 

For those times when a casual bag will do, we present five handbag options, one as cheap as $15–and all under $50.

Clockwise from Left:
AE Bike Tote | $24.50 at American Eagle
Got to love a biker’s bag with a bike logo, right down to the heart "gear."

Fred Cassette Tote | $15 at Fred Flare
Whimsically old school and yet completely fresh. 

Nylon Bow Satchel | $24.50 at Gap
We can’t get enough of this bright green color–which will give the most basic of outfits a shot of energy.

Issac Mizrahi for Target Tote in Denim | $39.99 at Target
Dark denim is at once casual and somehow dressy.  Here’s a handbag that will carry you wherever you go.

AE Tropical Slouchy Hobo | $49.50 at American Eagle
Breezy enough for an island getaway, yet substantial enough to tackle Sunday afternoon errands.
