3. Kate Spade Knott Croc-Embossed Mini Satchel
This chic Kate Spade Knott Croc-Embossed Mini Satchel is the perfect accessory to add a bit of edge to your look. Designed with croc-embossed leather, the emerald green bag features an open top and dog-clip closure with interior slip and zip pockets to keep your essentials safe. Plus, the removable and adjustable crossbody strap transforms this top handle bag into a hands-free accessory with ease.
4. Kate Spade Knott Medium Satchel
This pretty and practical bag is a larger version of its mini counterpart mentioned above and is available in seven versatile colors. We love that you can carry the Kate Spade Knott Medium Satchel by the 3.75-inch top handle or the adjustable long crossbody strap. It cinches or expands at its sides for maximum storage capabilities and features several smaller pockets, plus a large main compartment that's big enough to fit an iPad. "I’m so thrilled about this bag, and it’s super roomy," one fan writes. "It’s great for any occasion. You can wear it as a crossbody or just hand-held. This will be the new classic KS bag of the season.”
5. Kate Spade All Day Large Zip-Top Tote
When you're on the go, pack all your belongings in the roomy Kate Spade All Day Large Zip-Top Tote that fits a 13-inch laptop. It comes in five colors for every taste—from blazer blue to orchid pink—and has numerous interior and exterior pockets and slots to organize your things. The crossgrain leather exterior is simple and sleek while the interior is lined with a sophisticated jacquard print. “I have been using this bag for a couple of weeks and I love it," one person raves. "It fits my MacBook perfectly and it’s magnetic so I don’t have to zip and unzip it. Another great thing is the amount of pockets it has on the inside. I have everything in its own space so I can find it quickly when I need to. Even when I stuff the bag, the straps feel secure and it doesn’t hurt my shoulder when carrying it. I love it so much I ended up buying another one."
6. Kate Spade Knott Medium Crossbody Tote
For a versatile tote bag that can go anywhere with you, consider the Kate Spade Knott Medium Crossbody Tote. With four colorways to choose from, this pebbled leather bag features a faux microsuede lining, magnetic snap closure and multiple pockets and compartments. One customer said, "Such a nice purse and just the right size. Not too big, not too small. Great neutral beige color. Will be using it for travel also."
7. Kate Spade Flower Jacquard Stripe Everything Large Tote
The Kate Spade Spade Flower Jacquard Stripe Everything Large Tote could be seen as one of the trendier options on our list, but jacquards are an iconic part of Kate Spade’s heritage so the new Spade Flower Jacquard fabric is a welcomed closet staple. With Italian leather trim, solid faille lining and several interior compartments, this beautiful open-top tote is a must-have statement accessory. One customer said, "I LOVE everything about this bag. The size is perfect for travel and for on-the-go seeing that it literally fits everything! The material is luxe and the tasteful color combo will make you feel elegant and sophisticated."
8. Kate Spade Hudson Medium Convertible Crossbody
Smaller bags are having a moment and if you’re looking for one that will stay in style for years to come, check out the Kate Spade Hudson Medium Convertible Crossbody. We love that the adjustable straps can convert this bag into a crossbody, shoulder or really anything in between. “This bag is so trendy and comfortable, but remains a classic! I love how versatile the bag is and the different ways to wear it. My favorite way to style it: leave both straps as a fun fashion element,” one customer said.
