The 10 Best high-street handbags

1. Black

At well under £100 this is a bargain for a good-quality leather bag. It will suit those with an androgynous style and its fabric mixing and snake embossing means it has the trends safely covered. Also available in a cream colour way.

2. Nude Bored of black? Fashion designers are too. So embrace the cool colour palette which is making its way into a store near you and invest in the lighter look with naturals and nudes. This buckle-free satchel will have minimalists reaching for their credit cards. £125, cosstores.com
4. Grey and cream The satchel is given a new lease of life when delivered in this easy, spring colour-way. The cream body may get a bit grubby with time, but as the price point is so reasonable (it's made from polyurethane, not leather) you can afford to have some carefree fun with it this summer. £36, warehouse.co.uk
6. Snake Snake print has knocked the spots off leopard of late, with many designers including Gucci and Preen experimenting with the serpent skin pattern. The clean shape of this roomy handbag shows off the print to the full and it is a great accessory to perk up a tired work outfit. £180, bananarepublic.gap.co.uk
7. Monochrome It shouldn't have escaped your attention that black and white is set to be the colour combination of the season. The hues sit harmoniously together on this tote in a graphic frame design and there are some matching shoes in store too. £99.99, shop.mango.com
8. Yellow Zara's handbags are consistently good. If you fancy a change from their hugely coveted leather shopper, this zesty tote with zip details should be just the ticket. It's smaller than the shopper, but just as much of a statement. £39.99, zara.com
9. Buff Shiny fabrics are the "finish" to get excited about for this season – and for the next too. This ladylike Fifties style looks more modern when delivered in patent, but you'll have to wait until early next month to snap up this spring bargain. £29.99, newlook.com
10. Black and gold More urban-inclined dressers will love this serious-looking bag with its multi-stud design which fits in well with the tough-leather trend. This versatile number can be hand held or worn over the shoulder. £55, asos.com

It’s easy to update your accessories when beautiful styles like these are available at prices to suit modest budgets
