    Read BuzzFeed's full write-up on this bag here.

    Promising review: "This is an unbelievable bargain. I've looked everywhere for the perfect crossbody bag, and this is it. The inside liner is soft and my giant iPhone 7 Plus fits perfectly in the front zipper!!! I'm about to order it in another color. The strap is longer than on most bags, which is what I was looking for." β€”S. Ducote

    Price: $12.45+ (available in 26 styles)

    2. A posh red mini bag with a turnlock closure so you can have that effortlessly stylish vibe on lock.

    Promising review: "This small tote looks expensive and is very well-made. I intended to give it as a gift, but I'm keeping it instead. The pocket on the outside is perfect for my set of keys; no more fishing for keys inside my purse." β€”IRIS

    Price: $24.99

    3. A two-tone tote that has a smaller, removable crossbody inside, so you basically never need to buy another purse again for as long as you live (but you know you will anyway).

    And tons of people swear by it β€” it's got over 1,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about this tote. I'm going on a cruise soon and wanted something that could be taken on the plane that would hold my iPad, magazines, and book while traveling. This tote comes complete with a smaller purse inside with an over-the-body strap. It also comes with an outside wallet that's big enough for a passport. It's beautifully made. I picked it up during an Amazon special and can't believe I got such a good deal for such a quality item. I'm looking forward to using it a lot!" β€”Bobbier

    Price: $16.99+ (available in three colors)

    4. A too-cute-for-words kitty purrrse for anyone who's into feline quirky and chic at the same damn time.,

    It's also got a removable crossbody strap!

    Promising review: "This really is a cute little purse that's perfect for my needs. It comfortably fits my 7" Kindle e-reader, my phone, a micro mini travel umbrella, a bulky set of keys, a small notebook, and a tube of lip gloss. For me, the size is perfect. I don't carry a lot with me and I use the inner pockets as my 'wallet.' If you're looking for a small purse, this is a good bag. As far as construction goes, it seems really well-made and solid, and it has a hard bottom, which is a must for me." β€”Catmish

    Price: $19.99+ (available in 16 colors and styles)

    5. An all-purpose large crossbody with plenty of pockets and cool details on the straps, so you can't go chevron-g with it.,

    Promising review: "I'm absolutely in LOVE with this purse! This is my first ever crossbody. The idea of having less space almost made me back out, but I'm so dang glad I didn't. It was able to fit all the things I wanted and it's the perfect size. Not only is the style and color gorgeous, but the functionally beats any bag I've ever owned by far!!! It has three compartments on the inside. The middle one is smaller, but perfect for my Note 8 phone. The other two are perfect for helping me stay organized. Plus, there's another open pocket I use for lipstick, eyeliner, etc., and an inside zipper pouch I use for tampons and hair ties. Finally, I use the outside zipper pouch for headphones and my knife. I will DEFINITELY be buying more in different colors!" β€”AllisonW08

    Price: $22.95+ (available in 19 colors)

    6. A western-inspired crossbody that says, "This ain't my first fashion rodeo.",

    Promising review: "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I've purchased and returned a few purses because they weren't quite right. This one, however, is perfect. It's soft, lightweight, casual chic, and very functional. I love the color and the strap was just long enough." β€”O.

    Price: $16.99 (available in two colors)

    7. A water-resistant travel purse with a removable RFID-blocking wristlet that over 1,000 reviewers swear by for being prepared on all their adventures.

    It's also got a strap on the back that can be fastened around a suitcase handle, plus tons of interior and exterior pockets!

    Promising review: "This is just a great bag. It's big enough for everything without being so big it overwhelms you. It has enough room for a full-sized hairbrush, a Kindle (plus another book or small notebook if you want), a cosmetic bag, and even a rain hat. There are several options for where to put your cell phone and passport. It has ten pockets for credit cards, and since you can put more than one in each slot, it's hard to imagine needing more. Inside you'll find two big pockets so you can remember just where you put things, and there are two front outside pockets plus one on either end. The bag is extremely nice-looking; it's sleek and dressy enough to take anywhere, with nice hardware that's not overdone. I love the strap. It's wide and soft so it doesn't cut into your shoulder, and it's totally adjustable. Empty, the bag hardly weighs anything, so how heavy you make it is up to you. I've had other Baggallini bags and loved them all. They last forever. It's about the best bag you can get for the money anywhere." β€”Kat McQueen

    Price: $63.75 (available in 20 colors and prints)

    8. A transparent chain strap purse you clearly need right this second.

    Yi Yang/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "A couple months ago, I wouldn’t have considered buying a see-through bag, even though it’s a big trend ATM. However, as more and more events started coming up (like baseball games, concerts, festivals, and museum trips), I started warming up to the idea. A lot of venues require bag checks at the entry and some stadiums even go as far as requiring clear bags for safety reasons. As soon as I received this, I knew I'd made the right decision. The plastic is thick and durable, the stitching is neat and even, and the hardware is a true gold tone. It’s also crystal-clear, with no yellow tinge or cloudiness. The bag is actually pretty spacious β€” I can fit my wallet, sunglasses, phone, some makeup, keys, and random bits and bobs in there. I’ve taken this out a few times, and bag checks have been extremely swift at every venue. I’ve also gotten tons of compliments from people who see it. The classy design makes it suitable for everyday wear, and it adds a lot interest to a boring ol' outfit. I highly recommend it." β€”Yi Yang (check out her full review here, #1).

    Price: $37.99 (available in three colors)

    9. A super versatile wristlet clutch with a removable chain strap and a social calendar as busy as yours β€” because you're gonna take it everywhere.

    The wristlet strap is also removable, so you can also use it without any straps at all as a pouch or wallet in a bigger purse!

    Promising review: "I'm so in love with this little purse. I needed a small bag to hold my phone, cards, and makeup at a concert. I wanted it to be cute without being in my way. This definitely served that purpose and I use it all the time now. I'm planning on buying some additional colors. It fits the iPhone 7 Plus if you don’t have too much else in there." β€”Danji

    Price: $14.99 (available in 11 colors and prints)

    10. A boho-printed convertible carryall that you can rock as a backpack or a shoulder bag.

    Promising review: "I got this backpack to take with me to Europe. I wanted something prettier than an outdoor pack. I especially liked this one because you can turn it from a backpack into a shoulder bag. Many of the museums won't allow backpacks, but shoulder bags are okay, so this was great! It's got lots of great pockets. This bag has been from Delaware to Venice to Provence to Amsterdam and back to Delaware. It will have many more adventures I'm sure!" β€”AnneEG

    Price: $25.98 (available in two colors)

    11. A Harry Potter-themed crossbody perfect for your next shopping trip to Diagon Alley.

    Promising review: "I love this design! It's great for any Harry Potter fan and the perfect blend of classy and nerdy. For me, it's perfect that it's small. I can comfortably fit my smartphone, large wallet, and Kindle inside. The quality is what I would expect for the price." β€”Abby

    Price: $41.99

    12. A soft shoulder bag with multiple strap options to help you keep calm and carry on.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect bag! I wanted a lightweight bag big enough to fit my 11"x9" inch tablet, with tons of pockets. This bag meets all my needs and is absolutely gorgeous! I get compliments on it all the time. I'm able to fit so much in this bag, including my tablet, and all the pockets keep the little things I carry organized and easy to find. The straps are long enough to carry it comfortably as a shoulder bag, but the addition of the over-the-shoulder strap makes it more versatile. Despite not being real leather, the bag definitely looks more expensive than it is and seems like it will last me a long time." β€”Coralynn Long

    Price: $29.99+ (available in five colors)

    13. A fun crossbody here to help you reap some ~fringe~ benefits.,

    You can also swap out the crossbody strap for the included wrist strap!

    Promising review: "I LOOOOVE this purse so much! I usually hate purses but I love how compact this one is. It's the perfect size. My iPhone 7 fits perfectly, along with my tiny card case wallet, some lipstick, and any other small, random things I need to carry. I'm a plus-size lady (size 22) and crossbody purses have to be a certain length to work properly. This one actually hangs in the right place and the length is adjustable! The fringe has lasted over a year without losing ANY strands. I love the inside details like the striped fabric and the little pockets (one with a zipper and one without). I've used this purse for over a year and it's just now starting to wear a little bit, which is impressive for the price! Seriously, if you're considering buying this product, you won't regret it!" β€”FearLizz

    Price: $14.50+ (available in 16 colors)

    14. A 100% cotton Vera Bradley leopard tote that's MACHINE WASHABLE β€” keeping it looking sharp is so easy, it's wild.

    Promising review: "I love, love, love this purse! The size is just right for necessities plus some unneeded crap. The outside pocket fits my phone perfectly, so it's easy to get to when it rings. The interior of the main compartment has many pockets to organize other items for quick access. I have my sunglasses, an external battery to charge my phone, my prescription meds, and a water bottle in the inside pockets. The quilting is soft and makes for a comfortable strap. The zippers are sturdy and I love that I can throw the bag into my washer!" β€”Liz Gabriel

    Price: $68

    15. A glam-as-hell Aldo statement bag in brilliant brocade or sequins because every day deserves a little extra sparkle.,

    Promising review: "I needed a top-handle purse because my shoulder can no longer handle much weight. When this came I was shocked by how beautiful it was. It looks like a much higher-priced bag. I've received more compliments on this purse than any other purse I've ever had and total strangers stop me to comment on it everywhere I go. It holds the right amount of stuff and seems to be very durable. I'm only 4'11" and was concerned it might be too big when I ordered it, but it's a perfect size." β€”Chris Thompson

    Price: $75 (available in three designs)

    16. An embellished strap saddle bag that tells the world you can handle anything.

    It also comes with a removable shoulder strap!

    Promising review: "I was so pleasantly surprised with this little gem! It's a beautiful handbag and looks a lot more expensive than it is. The material and hardware look high-end. I'm so, so happy with this bag. I may get another in a different color." β€”Michael W.

    Price: $35.98 (available in three colors)

    17. A trendy bucket bag that's just as fabulous as a designer option. Spending major $$$ on a fancy bag? Bucket.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my bag. It’s better than designer bags I've owned. This bag is a quality material and the color is beautiful. The magnet closure is strong. My water bottle fits inside nicely without hanging out, and the bag still closes. Bucket bags are my preferred style of bag because my wallet, glasses, and water bottle fit nicely inside with easy access. I love that it’s not floppy and that it stands when I have to set it down." β€”Amy Torman

    Price: $39.99 (available in four colors)

    18. A spacious satchel with a removable crossbody strap and several little pockets inside.,

    Promising review: "I'm EXTREMELY happy with this purchase. I usually stick with Coach, Fossil, and Lucky Brand purses, but this looks and feels very classy. It can easily be worn over my shoulder and there's plenty of room inside. I ordered the camel color and absolutely love it. I highly recommend it." β€”Andrew Fiedler

    Price: $16.99+ (available in two colors)

    19. A Nine West tote in a fun color or pattern that's tote-ally cute.

    Promising review: "I love it! I've tried a number of totes, and this one meets my needs better than any. It's a classy, all-season color and design with a tan fabric interior so I can see what's in there (black linings make that hard). It has plenty of differently-sized pockets inside and out, but still plenty of room for a sweater, snacks, and a water bottle." β€”Comfort is Primary

    Price: $50.75+ (available in eight colors and prints)

    20. A picture-perfect Betsey Johnson camera-shaped crossbody that'll make standing out a snap.

    Promising review: "LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! I took it to lunch with friends the other day and got lots of compliments. My friends took pics to show their families. Everywhere I went I got a compliment. It's bigger than expected, so there's more space to add a few things. I put my truck keys in the 'lens' compartment and they fit just fine. I was so excited when I found this purse. My friend is a professional photographer and he got a big kick out of my camera!!!" β€”Ivanq

    Price: $75.61+ (available in two styles)

    21. A sleek leather bag ready to ~shoulder~ the burden of carrying all your shit.

    Promising review: "I love it! After lusting after a similar designer bag which cost over $390, I discovered this one, read the reviews, and bought the large one. The leather is gorgeous, with the color darkening toward the sides. It's large enough to hold everything I could possibly want to carry: my iPad, makeup bag, hair brush, and wallet. This bag looks just as good as a $390 bag. This is a fantastic bag for a super reasonable price!" β€”JLeah

    Price: $84.90+ (available in two sizes and six colors)

    22. An amazingly affordable classic black tote that's polished enough for work but can also be taken absolutely anywhere.

    Promising review: "This is beautifully constructed and the size is perfect. It can fit my iPad and a lot more essentials and comes with a shoulder strap as well. I’m definitely thinking about purchasing another; the quality and the price can't be beat." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $19.99

    23. And a gorgeous pearl-embellished clutch that's a bit of a scene-stealer. In fact, your going-out dress might get a bit jealous.

    Promising review: "This bag is gorgeous! It's roomy; I have space for my cell phone (Samsung Galaxy S7) and will be able to fit several other items. It comes with two chain straps, one short and one shoulder strap. The latch is secure but easy to open." β€”cleanhands

    Price: $19.99+ (available in eight colors)
