Looking over three MCM handbags for sale we can learn tips of what the designers are doing. These are elements you can look for in any bag, no matter the price tag.

MCM Mini Shoulder Clutch features a detachable shoulder chain. (Buy here.) An adjustable strap is great no matter its material, but it’s always especially fun when it’s made of chain. I’m so in love with them that I’ve done an entire feature on chain strap bags before. (Aw, I stopped using those little check marks in the collages, do you guys miss them or nyah?)

MCM Sportivo Satchel has suede lining,  double handles and metal feet. (Buy Here) Those are all good things. A nice durable lining is important for any purse/bag/clutch/etc. Double handles help you carry the weight of all the things that get stuffed into a purse, and metal feet help the bag keep its shape and not have its bottom get so dirty. I’ll also mention that I like to have a purse with silvertone hardcare as well as one with goldtone, because I’m way too into matching all of my metal. (Which goes out the window when I wear brass jewelry or copper jewelry, or if I use an all-fabric and leather bag.) I also think this bag is great because it’s a perfect stand-alone accessory with its BRIGHT color. Animal pattern? Yea, there is one. But it’s really subtle, so it works.

MCM Sportivo Large Drawstring Hobo features silvertone hardware and buckles on the straps as well as metal feet. (Buy Here) I love the little buckles near the bottom, the logo in silvertone at the bottom, the silvertone ends of the drawstrings…it’s all about the details. Although, personally? Not a huge fan of drawstring hobo bags unless there’s a hidden interior zipper going on, you know? I hate the idea that I’m about to have THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN MY PURSE fall out and be lost forever. Oh, the drama and horror of it all! (Don’t look at the price tags, those are also pretty horrifying.)
