No matter the season or the century, a black handbag is a style essential. The quintessential black bag goes with any outfit for any occasion, making it a stable closet must-have. But just because you need a black purse to round out your fall wardrobe doesn’t mean you need to spend designer dollars on your choice tote.
You can find black handbags in all styles and sizes for under $50. Yes, you read that right — under $50. You just need to know where to shop. From ASOS to Amazon to Nordstrom, some of your favorite retailers stock heaps of black handbags for budget fashionistas. Although they clock in under $50, these bags look anything but cheap. Some even rival the look of designer duds.
