Take a look at these beautiful handbags, both contemporary and premier designer. They're on-trend and ready to take you from the spring into the summer and fall! Featured bags are from Rebecca Minkoff, Balenciaga, Kate Spade, Alexander Wang, and Givenchy.

Look for Less: Contemporary Chic
Look for Less: Minkoff vs. Balenciaga

First, lets check out my favorites out of the bunch! There's nothing more classic than a black tote. It's versatile as it works with outfits for any occasion. If you love Balenciaga's Papier tote, then you'll have an eye for Rebecca Minkoff's M.A.B. tote. The look is so chic and is perfect for both academia and the workplace. Both bags are large enough to carry work materials as well as the essentials and come in a variety of colors. The M.A.B. tote runs at $295 and the Papier tote starts at $1445.

Look for Less: Minkoff vs. Wang

I've been lusting after Alexander Wang's Rocco duffel for a while. The shape is so great and is large enough for the essentials and maybe a little more. Rebecca Minkoff brings her own version to the duffel trend with her Ascher carry-all. This is a fabulous handbag trend, and will be a fabulous pick for the summer. Again, these bags come in a variety of colors. The Ascher is $395 and the Rocco starts at $795.

Look for Less: Kate Spade vs. Givenchy

Though they don't starkly resemble each other, these two bags above share in their beautiful light blue/mint colors, stiff top handles and a convenient shoulder strap. Kate Spade has been making some pretty cute bags recently, including this Catherine Street Pippa. The Pippa is only available in one size, but the Givenchy Antigona comes in various sizes. Both bags, however, come in various colors and are appropriate for numerous occasions. The Pippa is $398 and the Antigona starts at $2,000.
