Looking for the best Amazon handbags and purses? Then you have come to the right place. Amazon may be a place where you buy your groceries, office supplies or holiday essentials, but if you’re a fan of handbags (and who isn’t?!), the fashion section is better than you think, especially the handbags.
I’m a content creator with a penchant for colourful accessories, and I’ve been doing some hunting for the best handbags from Amazon in a bid to update my accessories collection. I was pleasantly surprised to find labels such as Kate Spade, Coach, JW Pei, Marc Jacobs and Valentino on the site. Who knew they stocked such good brands and at such competitive prices? I had to share them with you, obviously, so I’ve gone through what I think are the best Amazon hangbags and purses. These range from more expensive offerings from the likes of Coach, to cheaper bags under the £20 mark that still pack plenty of style.
Firstly, let’s talk about that Coach Tabby bag. I’ve wanted this bag ever since it first dropped, and I think the Prime delivery is enough to finally sway me to get it. I also fell in love with the terrycloth shoulder bag from the designer, which has a real 70s vibe and would look incredible paired with some flared jeans.
Amazon also stocks a variety of JW PEI bags, including the diamante Abacus bag with a gorgeous grab handle and the angular Lily shoulder bag. If you didn’t know, JW PEI has been worn by the likes of Gigi Hadid, Megan Fox and Emily Ratajkowksi, but as handbags go, it’s super affordable.
Remember, Amazon is much more than just handbags. If you’re a shoe person, check out our edit of Amazon’s best shoes and also the best jewellery on Amazon. Now, let’s get into the best handbags, or purses if you’re reading in the US, on Amazon. Prepare to be shocked.

Just wow. The Valentino bag is stylish, subtle and incredibly well-priced for such a top-tier brand. It’s not as garish as the JW PEI diamante bag, so you may find it more versatile. The emblem on the front will be sure to turn heads.
JW PEI Lily Shoulder Bag
JW PEI Lily Shoulder Bag Purse, £73.52 – buy now
One of the cheaper options, but nothing about this bag looks cut price. A subtle logo with a classy gold zip makes it a perfect accompaniment to a dark dress or cocktail party. As it’s black, it goes with everything – so its sure to be a versatile bag for many occasions.
COACH Leather Covered C Closure Pillow Tabby Shoulder Bag

HUGO Women’s Mel Shoulder Bag

HUGO’s Mel looks very avante-garde with its angular appearance. In fact, it would look at home on many of the catwalks this year. It’s great for those who want to make a statement with a more minimal design.

GUESS what? You can pick up this beauty for less than £100 – and it’ll look fabulous with so many dresses. Pair with some floral prints for an extra shot of colour, or match with jeans and a T-shirt to add a little bit of glamour.

Best Amazon handbags FAQ
Which handbags are the best?
This all depends what you want them for. The main thing to consider for handbags is try to not sacrifice too much functionality for style. You want a bag that is useful as well as something that complements your outfit. We’d always recommend black handbags as these tend to be the most versatile. For those looking to make a statement but also wanting a hugely fucntional bag, opt for one of the larger Michael Kors offerings, a bag from Kate Spade or one of Coach’s more quirky offerings.
Which company is good for bags?
This is hard to answer as ‘good’ is quiet a generic term. Ultimately, you can’t go wrong with the likes of Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Coach and GUESS. These tend to be a great balance between being reasonable enough price wise and be made of great quality material. However, many cheaper High Street offerings are also great, so these days you can pick up a fantastic handbag for under the £50 mark.
