Even if you aren’t fan of black, you have to admit that this deep dark hue is one of the most versatile colours and is perfect for most, if not all, occasions. That is why the little black dress (LBD) is so beloved worldwide. Black bags are the same. Whether you’re going to the office, for dates with the beau, or out with your friends and family (less than five please!), these totes will be there for you. This is why we’re sharing with you our favourite affordable picks below $100 to incorporate to use every day.
The wrinkled effect makes the bag look and feel well-used and loved. The large spacious design can also hold many items without worrying that the bag will look deformed. Best paired with athleisure.
If you don’t want just a plain black design, try this with its subtle animal embossing. This bag is an easy option for both work and play. We reckon a fit-and-flare dress would look beside it.
With its soft, slouchy silhouette, this bag is easy to carry and comfortable. The contrasting metal hardware adds a touch of sophistication too. T-shirt and jeans is a look to pair with this bag.
This roomy minimalist design comes with a detachable shoulder strap that transforms it from a handbag to shoulder or crossbody bag. Finish the look with your favourite work dress.
Looking for a less conventional design? Get this chain handbag that oozes sex appeal and femininity. Dress it with a denim jumpsuit.
Clean sleek lines make for a bag that can take you from the most formal to casual social events. Finish with a sharp suit.
With a distinct shape, this bag can be carried as a hand or shoulder bag. Play up the unique silhouette with a shirt and pleated skirt combo.
From the playfully-shaped flap to the spiffy gold hardware, this Charles & Keith bag looks more expensive than its price tag. It doesn’t have much room though – just enough for your mobile phone, keys, cards, tissue and makeup to touch-up.
