It’s getting chilly outside, and that means it’s time to break out the luxe: cashmere sweaters, three quarter-length jackets and coats and fabulous accessories — especially handbags. And with the many discount clothing and accessory lines offering designer looks at more affordable prices, now everyday fashionistas can have high-end style for less.

Check out these three handbag styles — all on-trend and under $50 — that every chic chick should have in her fashion arsenal this season.

A Clutch Situation

Animal prints are major this season – from shoes to outwear to dresses. But if you aren’t yet ready to take the trend head on, a simple way to incorporate it into your wardrobe is with a chic handbag. Be it leopard, giraffe or snake, an animal print clutch can help punch up your style quotient and totally works for an evening out.

Prim & Proper

A classic satchel never goes out of style. The sleek silhouette and handle add just the right touch of sophistication, whether it’s an office look or something more casual like a boyfriend cardigan and jeans.   You can update the accessories staple this fall by opting for versions with mixed fabrics like tweeds and animal prints. Or go for one in a vibrant hue, such as cobalt blue.

Carry It All

For those days when carrying a small handbag just won’t do, a tote is the obvious way to go. And if you’re going to rock a big bag, be fly while doing it. Try a slouchy tote bag in a neutral hue (neutral tones are another big trend this season) like camel or gray. Experimenting with textures — think suede and ostrich leather —  is another great way to spice things up.

    I love the Satchel! The other two are nice, but I really want to get my hands on that one.
