The Most Affordable Designer Bags To Invest In

Today we are going to explore some of the most affordable, designer bags to invest in. A lot of these bags are used by fashion bloggers and even some celebrities. Some of them are from well known brands as well as some are from new and upcoming designers. Although they are classed designer status, you do not have to break the bank to own them.

So if you have dreamt of owning a designer bag then you have come to the right place. The best part is that all bags listed in this post are priced below $500. I know you are probably thinking there is no way a designer bag could be that cheap. But I promise you that any one of these bags will elevate the simplest outfit.

Some Of The Most Affordable Designer Bags

Danse Lente

First on the list is Danse Lente, a personal favourite as I have had eyes on one of them for quite a while. Their bucket bags were definitely one of the more popular bags of 2018.

Cult Gaia

Known mainly for its handmade bamboo totes and straw bags and were also very popular in recent times. The unique shapes and materials are what make this brand stand out amongst the others.


Well known for its minimalist clear PVC totes that are perfect for summer time.

Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs launched one of the most colourful camera crossbody bags that we have seen last year. They are colour-blocked with the iconic hardware at the front, which makes them hard to miss.

See By Chloé

See by Chloé comes from the sister line Chloé. Hana shoulder bag comes in different sizes and the cheapest one retails on Farfetch for around $280. Although rather very small, the price tag on this babe was shocking to me. We all know that Chloé bags are not the most affordable bags, but this one is also on my wish-list. You can even shop for reasonably priced clothing from this line (you’re welcome).


Between the Dior saddle bag and Loewe crossbody bags, I am not sure which one was more popular. But the designs of their bags make them appealing and another one of my favourites.

Rejina Pyo

Her crocodile embossed leather box bag and snakeskin box bag were the two most dominant bags from her collection. Fashion bloggers everywhere seemed to have rocked this unforgettable bag for fashion weeks. Both are priced around $715 so it doesn’t quite make the list. However, there is the croc print leather shoulder bag for $581. Which makes it a little more than the $500 threshold for this post but I just had to list it.

Mansur Gavriel

I remember when they launched their iconic extra huge leather circle bags. That is when my love for round bags grew and a lot of the established bloggers were seen sporting them.


Last but not least, Jacquemus and although priced a little above $500, you can get them for 30% off at Farfetch. So technically they make the list after the discount ($420-$480). These bags were one of the “IT BAGS” last year especially during fashion weeks.

Well these are the most affordable designer bags from 2018 that I could remember. These are also going to be popular in 2019 as well. Let me know in the comments if I left out any so that I could include them and which ones you plan on getting.

Hope you enjoy this post. Remember to share it with your best friend so you can both invest in designer pieces and look fab together.
