Non-Designer Bags

Which brands stand out as 'cool' - I know a nice bag when I see one and I do think you can find a good looking bag in many high st shops, so choosing one is not such an issue.

I am slowly re-discovering myself after kids so looking to buy something for everyday that looks chic and carries some coolness without the designer brand or price tag.

Any recommendations, shops etc much appreciated.

I love Yoshi bags, cute designs.
Liebeskind are made from gorgeous leather but without a stupid price tag, they last well too.

Bags on the high street can still run into the hundreds - e.g Whistles, Russell and Bromley so it depends on your budget.

I always recommend Fossil, and have a great satchel from Scaramanga.

Thanks some good suggestions and brands I dont even know, I always forget TK Maxx so thanks for the reminder. I will look at all of these as they are brands I never look at which is why I came on here.

I guess I just want something to give an outfit a bit more oomph and look classic.

Clarks. Scaramanga - both lovely and good value.

Whistles bags are really good quality and reasonably priced if you buy in the sale. I got a tote last year in bright green for less than a hundred pounds.

Lk Bennett are great in the sale. Also look on Vestiaire Collective. I've just got a pre-owned (but totally immaculate) LK Bennet bag down from £245 to £92. It is red and gorgeous and I missed out in in the summer sale.

I recently brought a bag for £10 from Primark which I get loads of compliments on and so far it's been ragged about quite a bit without a scuff

I have a mustard/grey Ecco nylon hobo which has been endlessly versatile for two years and cost £55 (half price). When it got dirty, I put it in the washing machine.

I'm quite liking the look of top shop bags at the moment, very reasonably priced too. I have only looked online, so I don't know how they look of feel IRL.
