I get a lot of requests for handbag recommendations at more of a budget-friendly price point, and Nordstrom Rack is a great place to find brand name bags for less. I was really impressed with the selection when I started looking through their handbag section, so I decided to focus this whole post on fall handbags!
Whether you’re looking for a lightweight crossbody, a practical shoulder bag, or generous tote to carry all the things, I’ve rounded up 20 handbags I recommend checking out. Most of these are under $200, and a lot of them are even under $100.

20 Handbags for Fall from Nordstrom Rack
#1. Vince Camuto Kenzy Large Leather // This leather crossbody features a unique fold-down detail and a roomy interior. I love the caramel color for fall, but it also comes in black and orange.
#2. Hobo Kendall Leather Backpack // I’ve been a fan of the Hobo brand for years. I love the look and feel of their leather, and this adorable ivory leather bag is the perfect size for a backpack. It has a drawstring closure, and it’s just over $100.
#3. Hobo Bridge Convertible Leather Messenger Bag // Another Hobo brand bag, this one can be worn on your shoulder or as a backpack back. I think it has such a unique shape to it, and I love the tassel ring detail on the flap. It comes in taupe, ivory, and tan.
#4. Hobo Token Smartphone Leather Crossbody Bag // How perfect are these smartphone crossbody bags for running errands?! Just the right amount of space for your cellphone and money. This one is under $50 and comes in a ton of fun colors.
#5. Vince Camuto Corin Leather Phone Crossbody Bag // Here’s a similar smartphone crossbody, also under $50. I really like the pebbled leather and the zipper detail, and that grey-blue is gorgeous. It also comes in a sunny yellow.
#6. Bruno Magli Leather Shopper Tote Bag // If you need something with more storage space, this gorgeous Italian leather shopper tote is a great choice. This bag is a bit of a splurge, even on sale, but it’s an amazing deal for the quality, an it’s a classic style you can carry for years.
#7. Marc Jacobs Supple Leather Tote Bag // Another black tote, and this one’s under $200. I really like that interior pocket with a zipper for stowing a small laptop, and the leather on this one looks gorgeous as well. It comes in black, grey, and a yellowy-beige that would be really nice for fall.
#8. Marc Jacobs The Groove Leather Messenger Bag // This is the perfect medium size handbag for your everyday essentials, and it also comes in ivory and a really pretty tan for fall.

I’ve noticed that you and other bloggers are not showcasing Rebecca Minkoff handbags as much as in the past. . Are they out of vogue or has something happened that I don’t know about? I have a black crossbody bag of hers purchased in 2019 that has many of those leather strips hanging from it. I’m thinking of taking all the strips off. What’s your thoughts?
I love Rebecca Minkoff bags, and I was really sad to see she didn’t have any in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Oh my!the first one is gor-ge-ous😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 I’m the crazy nutty mad girl for bags! it’s my confessed addiction, together with coffee and chocolate!I think a girl never has too many bags!😂
LOL, I’m a bit of a bag girl myself. 🙂
I am a big fan of Vince Camuto bags… I own the Faria leather tote which is the same silhouette as the LV neverfull but a fraction of the cost! I had been looking for a quality alternative for a couple years and this one fits the bill. It is super soft and supple leather so it slouches like the the LV as well! Nordstrom rack has it in stock if you would want to link it. I highly recommend!
Thanks for the recommendation. I assume you mean this one? https://shopstyle.it/l/bwt46
Yep, this is the bag. I carried it daily for several months and still looks new
Are you keeping the TB canvas crossbody bag you featured in yesterday’s outfit post? Just curious what you thought of the size. I recently bought one similar to it (same style, different color) and it feels really small, even for a crossbody. I’m actually going to go up to the TB store this week to look around and maybe exchange it. What’s your opinion?
I want to, I love the colors. But it is really small. It has card slots inside, so I wouldn’t need to carry a wallet. It would definitely be just a going out bag, though. I like the larger one a lot, but it’s more $$ and I don’t think I’d carry it enough to spend that much.
You shared a great variety of handbags from Nordstrom Rack. They are one of my go-to online sites when I’m looking for a new handbag. Because my style preferences seems to change often, it is best that I not invest in a quality handbag. I shouldn’t be so wishy washy 😂. I hope you are having a great day!
