It’s time to make room in your closet. Spring is just around the corner, meaning now is the perfect time to start building your new warm-weather wardrobe. And because we believe every new season calls for a new handbag (or three), we’ve scoured the seemingly infinite number of styles available on Amazon and found 12 of the coolest, trendiest, and most affordable bags to buy right now. Not only are they all under $100, but they look so expensive, they’ll have even the biggest bag snobs asking where you found them.
