There’s an art to finding the perfect desk to drinks purse. We have plenty of massive totes that we use as our work bags to hold everything from our laptops and our tablets to a binder and a change of shoes (you know, just in case). We also have plenty of clutches that we exclusively use for formal events and nights out, and on those occasions when we just want to carry our phone, keys, a credit card and a lipstick for touch-ups. However, what’s really hard to find is a great bag that’s roomy enough to house whatever we need for the day ahead, but compact enough to wear to happy hour or a party without getting in the way, or ever feeling bulky.
Lucky for Us and our ever-growing collection of handbags, we found plenty of MICHAEL Michael Kors styles that do just that. The designer brand is synonymous with chic designs at a wallet-friendly budget. From shoes and coats to wallets, we love Michael Kors for the sophisticated staples that we know we’ll get plenty of wear out of. Naturally, when we saw that Macy’s is having a jaw-dropping sale on the label’s handbags, we knew we had to share the scoop — and give a rundown of the best spoils from the markdowns. The best part? There are so many discounted styles, many of which are under $150!
See it: Check out the MICHAEL Michael Kors Mercer Medium Bonded Leather Cross-Body, originally priced at $248, now 40 percent off and only $149! Limited time only.
One of the designs that immediately caught our eye is the MICHAEL Michael Kors Mercer Medium Bonded Leather Cross-Body. We love a great cross-body style and this particular one is the perfect size for all-day wear. It boasts a structured and elegant silhouette, complete with top handles for toting in your hand (should you choose to forego the shoulder strap), and a grainy pebbled leather that flawlessly infuses a bit of texture into your outfit. There’s also a gleaming padlock charm to add a bit of playful flair. With over 13 colors to choose from, ranging from a soft dove grey to an oxblood with sparkling gold tone hardware (above), there are just so many ways to style this versatile number.
Reviewers dig the leather piece, too! Many noted that it’s the perfect size for any occasion and that it provides easy access to whatever you have stashed inside. It’s also a bag that receives many compliments, as noted by shoppers, plus it makes a great gift. It’s truly the best size for wearing on a day filled with errands and events. The Mercer can easily fit a book or Kindle, plus your phone, wallet and any stray papers you might need to carry around. It’s a great weekend bag, too, and the style pairs well with coats, jackets and even less heavy-duty outfits, like tees and sweaters.
Not a fan of shoulder styles? We’ve got you covered! The MICHAEL Michael Kors Junie Flap Backpack is also part of the markdowns. The style is made entirely of leather and has four pockets (three interior, one exterior). Like the Mercer, the backpack has beautiful gold tone hardware, plus snap and drawstring closures to ensure that the only hands getting into your knapsack are your own. It comes in five shades, ranging from a beautiful fawn to a butternut shade and even neutrals like black, white and an olive-mushroom hue that’s perfect for fall.
Reviewers are fans of the playful design. Several noted that it fits everything you need, plus it’s lightweight and doesn’t dig into your shoulders. The smooth leather has also made this number a hit with reviewers. Want a bit more texture? Try the suede flap style! Bonus points: It’s also on sale and comes in two shades, oxblood and a jet black.
On a serious budget? Don’t worry, we found the perfect solution. The MICHAEL Michael Kors Whitney Cross-Body is on the biggest sale of them all. Don’t let the low price fool you. The purse is crafted with smooth leather, has a removable strap and is roomy enough to fit a small umbrella, phone, wallet, sunglasses and other bits and bobs. There’s a push-lock closure that gives the design the appearance of a much, much more pricey bag. The style comes in multiple shades, including a mushroom color, a pearly grey and a rose gold and navy shade that’s a touch more expensive. The classic black retails for full price.
