High Street Handbag Heaven – 20 Fashion Forward Bags for Less

With many handbag prices up in the stratosphere and even the mid range brands costing several hundred pounds what do you do when you want/need/must-have a new bag for the new season but don’t want to splash out too much?

There are a multitude of cheap bags around, some (sorry) seriously nasty to look at, and some by brands you simply won’t be happy carrying around.

A great handbag is every girl’s favourite accessory – always visible, incredibly useful, and something you probably use more than anything else in your wardrobe.  So do you splash out on an ‘it’ bag, which may cost a small fortune or go for cheap?  The answer is to do a bit of searching and find a handbag which doesn’t cost the earth, but will still get you points for being good looking, modern and useful and which you will be happy to have on your arm or shoulder all season long, rather than something you probably won’t ever use.

Here’s my pick of what’s on offer now, everything less than £100, some leather, some not and sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference.
