The Rankings

Charles & Keith Mini Two-Tone Envelope Bag
Rank & Style Approved


Charles & Keith Mini Two-Tone Envelope Bag

WHY YOU NEED IT: Mini, multicolored, and minimal, this structured handbag looks so much more expensive than $59. At that price, you may as well grab two. We're eyeing the mock croc versions big time.

STYLE WITH: Pops of green and yellow are the perfect way to amp up an oversized white button-down and polished black pants. Office outfits don't have to be boring, people.

Danse Lente Mini Johnny Bucket Bag

LOVED FOR: While bucket bags are nothing new, this one is. The best part about it is that while it makes a statement, it's also exceptionally versatile. The green and blush colorway is fun but easy to style, and the top handle and adjustable strap provide maximum carrying possibilities.

USERS SAID: "I love the interesting design of this bag, and the quality of the leather is good. It's great for a night out without the long strap, but it's also great as a crossbody for a more casual look."

Mango Rigid Handle Bag

WHAT IT DOES: Just when you thought mock croc handbags couldn't get any better, in comes this little stunner. The metallic handle adds a statement-making touch, but it also has a long removable strap in case you feel like carrying it as a crossbody.

WHY YOU NEED IT: Mock crock is famous for its ability to make any outfit look more expensive, however, this bag happens to ring up under $50. It's a win-win for your wardrobe and your wallet.

Yuzefi Dolores Colorblock Leather Crossbody Bag

BEST FOR: If you prefer to keep things classic, this bag is an excellent choice. Subtle details like a knot and unique cinnamon shade make it a standout piece, but the snap-flap closure and timeless, structured design make it ideal for everyday wear.

USERS SAID: "Gorgeous bag—perfect for casual use, but the interesting shape, asymmetrical body, and knot in the leather handle give it such a unique look. I'm a huge fan."

Gu_De Water PVC and Croc-Effect Leather Tote

LOVED FOR: PVC, croc-effect leather, and vintage hardware? Too many fall trends to count.

ABOUT THE BRAND: New buzzy bag brand Gu_De (pronounced "good") aims to design styles that are interesting and refreshing but still timeless enough to wear for years to come, and we're pretty sure this particular bag nails it.

Danse Lente Proebe Bis Acetate Closure Crossbody Bag

STYLE WITH: Pair this with an LBD and let the bag do all the talking.

USERS SAID: "Lovely bag! It's very unique and also very practical—great value for the price!"

Staud Large Rey Croc Embossed Leather Shoulder Bag

WHAT IT DOES: If this bag looks familiar, it's probably because it's currently flooding the street style scene like no other. Oversized and complete with an unexpected triangular shape, this gem is basically just a trendier version of your go-to tote.

WHERE TO WEAR: We've never seen a more perfect bag for the office.

Rejina Pyo Rita Bag

BEST FOR: Just when we started to tire of mini bags, this baby took us by surprise. The compact size and sweet silhouette are perfect for evenings out.

HELPFUL TIP: While you can't go wrong with brown or black, the snakeskin version will make an even bigger statement.

Manu Atelier Mini Pristine Combo Bag

WHY YOU NEED IT: Thanks to its brown, black, and beige colorway, this bag is guaranteed to match everything in your closet. So you pretty much need it, right?

STYLE WITH: Wear this with all your pretty floral dresses this season.

Staud Leather Moon Bag

WHY YOU NEED IT: Besides the fact that this may just be the It Bag of 2019, it's also quite practical as far as statement bags go. Excuse us while we go buy it in every color imaginable.

AS SEEN ON: We saw Kendall Jenner wearing the Staud Leather Moon Bag, so we bought the Staud Leather Moon Bag.
