*A great alternative to leather, these faux leather bags look like the real thing
* A beautifully structured handbag does not always need to cost a fortune
* Bags for a night out or everyday carry

Those who choose to follow a vegan lifestyle or just want to remain cruelty-free at all costs used to have limited choices when it came to style. As lifestyles progress, however, faux leather handbags have become de rigueur, with high and low-end fashion designers such as Stella McCartney creating beautiful synthetic bags. Scroll down for some fashionable options.

1. Satchel Top Handle Bag

The Danielle Nicole Arielle bag has a top handle and removable shoulder strap. Available in a beautiful combination of black and navy with gold hardware, this bag will make an unexpected, yet stylish everyday bag to go with all your wardrobe selections.


2. Vegan Leather Handbag with Ziptop and Crossbody Strap

Our first handbag choice is the 100% vegan Korvara Saffiano Vegan Leather bag. This versatile bag has multiple carrying options with clean styling and an elegant shape. Wear over-the-shoulder, crossbody, on your forearm or handheld by the two top straps, to make this bag all encompassing. Functions perfectly as a work bag or a larger evening bag.


3. Foldover Clutch With Stud Detail

The Karen vegan clutch by Sole Society features studded detailing and is a sharply designed bag in a great oxblood color for fall. Made from a soft leatherette, this clutch has a brass hardware strap detailing with an interior zip pocket. This is the perfect evening clutch, not too big and not too small, that is guaranteed to turn heads.

5. Shoulder Bucket Bag

This Corin bucket bag by Mad Rabbit Kicking Tiger is reminiscent of another extremely popular, expensive and hard to get leather handbag line on the market.
