5 Under $2000 Most Popular Designer Bags

I will be the first person in the room to raise my hand and confess to having bought into designer bags before that have maaayybe exceeded my budget a tiiiny bit, or, if I am completely honest, are very much over-priced for what they actually are!

Luckily for the fashionistas on a budget out there, many of the well-known designer brands do actually make entry-price bag designs with prices being as good as under $2,000! And while you might not get a Chanel handbag for that price, it is a great budget you can set yourself if you want to maybe get your first designer bag, or you want to buy into a brand without having to cash in all your savings, your house and your dog.

So, let me give them to you: the 5 most popular handbags by well-known designer brands that are under $500!

Bottega Veneta "The Pouch" Mini Bag

The little sister of Bottega Veneta's first 'It-Bag', so conveniently called the "Mini The Pouch", is not only more accessible in terms of finding this bag at your favorite retailers, but also in terms of price! Being just over $1,500 it is definitely on the more affordable side when we are talking must-have designer bags and a cool 50% of what the original The Pouch bag is. Plus, the Mini The Pouch actually comes with a slim shoulder strap, which makes it more wearable and versatile than the standard-sized The Pouch being a clutch style bag only.

 When I was doing my research for this blogpost, I was surprised to see how many Bottega Veneta mini bags are actually priced below the $2,000 mark! A lot of their best selling styles are quite reasonably priced in the mini sizes, so it is definitely wort a browse. I even found two The Pouch styles that are also more affordable than the standard leather version with $1,900! Linking some favs I found here:

I have proclaimed my love for Saint Laurent as a fashion house and their designs time and time again, so it made me really happy to be able to put my favorite designer on this list featuring designer handbags under $2,000! Saint Laurent actually has several handbag styles that fall into this category (oh, isn't it amazing?!), but the one design I think you get the most value for your money is the Lou Camera Bag. Now, the price depends on the materials used as well as the color, but they are around the $1,400 mark. I love this classic design, as it is practical, will never go out of style yet brings the Saint Laurent glamour to any of your outfits!

In a very similar fashion to the Saint Laurent Lou camera bag, the Gucci Soho Disco Bag has been a tried and true fan favorite for years as well. From the practical shape, to the comfortable crossbody strap and the quite prominent but, not too in-your-face logo - the Soho Disco truly is one of the most popular everyday designer handbags out there. The classic design comes in black and a tan color. The best part? The price is actually great being $1,250!

Italian fashion house Prada truly paved the way for other upscale designers with their use of recycled nylon for their high-end bag designs! Prada continues to use nylon in a ton of their recently launched designs, also in an effort to be more sustainable and eco-friendly, which we of course highly support. From their re-edition nylon shoulder bags, to newly released backpacks and bucket bag, and even up to an amazing tote bag, that quickly avanced to one of the brand's most coveted styles. The Re-Nylon Tote Bag comes in three different colors, and the price is amazing with $1,170.

I vividly remember the Chloé Faye bag being the reason I feel head over heels for designer bags all those years ago! I love how this classic bag design is distinguishable due to its features like the recognizable hardware ring with the chain detail, yet super practical and user-friendly for the everyday woman. The Chloé Faye is also not too harsh on your bank account with the small size being priced just under the $1,500 mark. Though more on the affordable end when compaired to it's high designer brand cousins, you get nothing less for your money with the Chloé Faye, with the bag being made of soft lambskin and the suede, and the craftmanship being stunningly detailed!

  1. To be honest, a designer bag is one of the only materialistic areas that I allow myself to splurge in. I don't know what it is about a beautiful, well-made bag that just pulls me in, but I suppose everyone has their thing, right? The selections you featured are all so pretty! I especially love the Chloe Woody bag and the Saint Laurent Rive Gauche tote!
