Coach is a classic brand that's exploding in modern-day popularity.

Coach is best known for its leather bags, namely the classic, saddle-inspired rectangular silhouette with its recognizable “C” logo. Of course, that’s not the only silhouette the designer sells. Coach offers a variety of styles, colors, and textures, for any occasion ranging from casual to business professional.

The brand's purses start around $150 and go upwards of $300—although you can find many on sale at Coach Outlet. While that may deter some shoppers from even clicking "Add to Bag," the brand has a 30-day return policy that makes seeing and testing a bag possible. It also stands behind its products, with a one-year warranty on any products purchased directly from the designer.

2. Kate Spade

Kate Spade is a color-lover's dream.

Kate Spade is best described as the apex of where preppy style and city flair come together. The designer is well known for its bright colors, classic designs, and whimsical limited-edition bags. Compared to Coach, Kate Spade has more styles under $200, though many of them are nylon or bite-size leather silhouettes. If you’re willing to spend a bit more, however, Kate Spade has a large variety of leather goods, as well as themed designs—like the I Love NY x Kate Spade New York Buddie Medium Shoulder Bag—which are part of its novelty shop.

The brand also has a separate site—the Kate Spade Surprise Sale—that's dedicated solely to sale items. It features an ongoing roster of handbags, wallets, jewelry, clothing, and shoes, all marked up to 75% off.

No matter what you buy, you’ll always have the option to return it within 30 days. In the U.S., Kate Spade includes a free return label to take the hassle out of mailing your bag back. It also offers a one-year warranty for any manufacturing defects.

Nordstrom is something of a superstore, making it a super place to shop for a wide variety of purse brands.

No shopping list would be complete without Nordstrom. The Seattle-based luxury department store offers shoppers a wide variety of clothing and accessories, including stylish handbags you’ll want to carry everywhere you go. It's a great place to shop a range of prices, whether you're looking for a $200 designer shoulder bag or a $20 casual canvas tote. You'll find brands including Tory Burch, Longchamp, and Marc Jacobs. If you're looking to save a few bucks? You can shop similar styles and brands at a discount at Nordstrom Rack.

Arguably the best part about shopping at Nordstrom is just how lenient the retailer is when it comes to returns. It takes them on a case-by-case basis, but its number one priority is customer service, so it’s almost never an issue—even if you lost the receipt or original tags.

Michael Kors is a go-to for glitzy hardware and trendy silhouettes.

For higher-end bags that look right off the runway, Michael Kors has more than a few purses to choose from. While shoppers can enjoy wallets and accessories under $100, the majority of the brand’s purses are in the $200 to $500 price range. In addition to being made with top-quality leather, many of the bags are adorned with gold hardware and chains, giving them a glitzier appeal.

Should you change your mind after purchasing your purse, you have 30 days to return it to a Michael Kors store or via mail. Like Coach and Kate Spade, MK products are covered by a one-year warranty.

T.J. Maxx sells purses as low as $15 and as high as $1,500.

What’s more, it offers everything from affordable brands you've never heard of to top designers marked drastically down.

If you shop online, you can make returns at a store or mail them back and you get 10 extra days to return your items—40 days versus 30 for in-store purchases.

6. Tory Burch

Tory Burch has long been a go-to for totes, but they sell satchels and crossbody bags, too.

Looking to splurge on a designer bag that’s built to last? Tory Burch has long been a destination for timeless totes, stylish satchels, statement shoulder bags, and more, made of materials like high-quality woven jacquard and supple, durable leather. All styles work in the intricate T monogram, making them a subtle status symbol. While you can snag some for under $200, most of Tory Burch’s bags are in the $300 to $600 range.

Shoppers can return a bag purchased at the boutique within 30 days, but the brand doesn’t allow returns on sample sale, Private Sale, monogrammed, or items purchased at a Tory Burch Outlet store. In other words, if you’re waiting for a Tory bag to go on sale to buy it, you want to make sure you’re head over heels for it before adding it to your cart. And while Tory Burch doesn't have a formal warranty policy, you can bring any defective products to attention of the place of purchase within the first year of purchase "for assistance."

The brand's purses are a favorite among celebs Meghan Markle, Emma Roberts, and Jessica Alba.
