This summer’s best handbag trends are abundantly wearable and have an air of relaxed elegance that’s hard to resist. However, there’s no need to break the bank to get your hands on your new summer staple bag.

We’ve wrangled up some of our must-have handbag styles under $300:

Rebecca Minkoff Studded Rocker: The mini crossbody is perfect for a night out or when you just want to carry the essentials. This superbly studded number gives any outfit an edgy punch.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Shoulder Tote in Dark Sand Embossed Python: Snake print is quickly becoming the hot print of the season. It reads as a neutral, making it surprisingly versatile, and not to mention, timelessly chic.

Hobo International Sandra Crossbody: This classic vintage appeal of this crossbody bag is utterly versatile for daytime.

Dooney & Bourke Cork Drawstring: With the drawstring bucket bag being such a hot style in handbags this season, we were naturally drawn to this classic Dooney style. It’s perfect for pairing with your nautical looks.

Even though we’re seeing a comeback of shorter heels and kitten heels, there’s still a special place in our hearts for the leg-slimming, leg-lengthening brilliance of sky-high platform wedges. For those of us who are on the shorter side, or those who just refuse to be seen in flats (you ladies know who you are!),  it’s  comforting to know that this season still boasts quite an impressive crop of height-amplifying platform shoes for us to lust over.

Here are a few of our must-haves for the summer:

Steve Madden Wissper: This nude-colored sling-back platform really lengthens the legs!

Via Spiga Eve: With a flair for the ‘70s, this stunning platform really makes a fresh statement. It’s definitely better than anything Marcia Brady could ever dream of!

Nine West Bottos: There’s a lot to love about the versatility of this casual wedge. Wear it with anything and everything!

Pelle Moda Jamba: The gladiator-like straps coupled with the cork and espadrille combo make this one fabulous wedge sandal!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille: The braided strap over a nice, tall espadrille wedge gives this such a boho flair.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s iconic style has certainly managed to stay relevant long after the hit HBO show’s final episode.

SJP’s impeccable mix of classic-meets ‘70s-meets modern style has been a source of envy for women everywhere.  When it was announced that the style icon herself was named the new creative consultant for Halston Heritage, the buzz was palpable. Now, the rest of us can capture SJP’s effortlessly glamorous style without having to take out a loan!

Her often-imitated eclectic style resonates through the Halston Heritage collection of retro-inspired dresses and tops.  The pieces feature iconic Halston elements such as one-shoulder, swingy skirts , pleats and ruffles.
