Affordable bags for spring & summer


Hi friends!  It finally feels like spring everywhere and with a new season comes a great excuse to add a new bag to your collection.  However, I don't want to spend a fortune on a trendy bag that I may only use for a few seasons.  The biggest trend in handbags right now is unique materials and textures such as straw and bamboo.  I have found several great options that are all $75 and under so you can keep up with the latest trends without breaking the bank.

The first option that is really popular right now is a straw circle bag.  The cream color goes with anything and this style bag has plenty of room to store everything without being too large.  The original version of this bag was by Clare V & a bit pricey at over $200.  However, there are several similar bags out in the market right now for much less.  I found one on Amazon for only $18!



Another popular material for spring and summer bags is bamboo.  This is such a unique style, and because of the tan color, it really goes with anything.  I get so many compliments every time I carry this bag!  This is another affordable option at only $40.


Multi-colored clutch \\ Black & white clutch

One of my favorite styles for this time of year is a clutch.  This one comes in several color options, and I love it so much that I bought it in both black & white as well as multi-colored!




I also love this straw clutch with multi-colored pom poms on it.  It comes in several colors, but I opted for the neutral straw for more versatility.  This bag is very affordable at only $32.

Finally, if you are looking for a larger tote, there are several great options available.  These can be used as a large handbag and are also perfect for the beach or pool!

I hope that you found a style or two in this post that you like!  If you end up purchasing a bag from this post, please send me an email or DM me on Instagram with a photo.  I always love seeing what you all chose to purchase.  Thanks as always for reading Smart Southern Style...I am so grateful for all of you!
