16 Best Quilted Handbags
Quilted handbags are one of my favorite accessories. These things are so in, and it’s clear why! Quilted handbags instantly scream luxury with their thick fabric and quality stitching, but it doesn’t limit itself to only more formal looks. The vibrant texture of quilted handbags can work for street style, workwear, athletic wear—literally anything!
I adore how quilted handbags can jazz up any outfit in any season. You can find quilted handbags in all different sizes and shapes, and each one has a unique pattern that makes it totally original. (So no shame in owning multiple, am I right?)
Quilted handbags were the “it bags” of Spring 1955 after Coco Chanel launched their legendary chain-handled flap bag with a gorgeous quilted exterior. They came back in the early aughts, and they are here to stay! As they should be, because they instantly elevate almost any look for whatever occasion.
Today, I’m sharing my top 16 picks for the best quilted handbags! I’ll tell you all about the best bags and help you style them too.
16 Best Quilted Handbags
There are quilted handbags in any price range. Whether you’re looking for something high end or something inexpensive, a quilted handbag will compliment your outfit and have long-lasting quality. Here are some of my favorite quilted handbags for any budget!
First up is my personal favorite! This GORGEOUS Saint Laurent leather puffer bag in noir is totally edgy and modern. I love that the chain is also in black, giving it a sleek and cohesive look. I combined it here with leather shorts and a beret for an EFFORTLESS chic outfit ready for whatever the day brings!
This Bottega Veneta crossbody bag comes in sixteen colors, and I am seriously trying to resist the urge to collect them all. The weave quilt pattern on this cassette bag is modern enough for your edgy looks, but soft enough for your more casual chic looks. I particularly like the porridge gold option for a monochromatic look like this.
If real leather isn’t in the budget, no sweat. There’s no shame in this beautiful faux leather shoulder bag. It’s sleek and provides a dramatic splash of color. I also love the way the red looks woven into the chain handle. Rocking a casual graphic tee outfit like this? Bump it up to the next level with this daring quilted crossbody!
If you’re looking for a quilted bag that is totally casual and goes with you anywhere to do just about anything, then this fanny back is for you! Whether you’re chasing the kids at the park or running to the grocery store, this fanny pack will never fail. It’s super useful AND super cute, so you won’t be sacrificing style over function. Here’s a fun fall outfit I put together with this bag!
This satchel is super versatile. Not only is the glossy black and simple square quilted pattern timeless and ready for anything, but you have the option to wear it with the chain shoulder strap or detach it for use of the top handles!
The zipper top on this is also a preference for a lot of you who like quick access to those inner pockets! I’d pair the black option with this powerful workwear.
This quilted leather shoulder bag comes in three colors. Black is always safe and always elevates, but this option also comes in two pink hues of blackberry preserve and rose smoke. The colors combined with the soft quilted pattern and dainty silhouette make this bag a total must-have.
If you’re looking for something sporty and casual that still has the exciting texture of a quilted bag, this is a great pick! You could pair this with an easy chic outfit like this or add it to your favorite workout wear. This bag comes in black, rhino grey with a green hue, and blue. You can’t go wrong with any of those options!
This quilted crossbody has a unique triangle pattern and a beautiful thin chain. It can go from day to night in a minute, but I particularly love this outfit where I contrast it with a midi sweater dress and then compliment it with a leather jacket.
The Marc Jacobs Quilted Softshot comes in two bold colors and features two zippered sections and an interior slip pocket, which is perfect for cash or an ID you need to keep handy! It references the usual chain strap with a few gold links, but otherwise has a comfortable leather shoulder strap.
I adore this shoulder bag from Kate Spade! The thick lines make for a bold and modern pattern in both the black and parchment options. I love the way it hangs, and it could easily go with daywear or a fancy date night ensemble! I would add it to this beachy cotton dress with gold jewelry!
If you’re looking for something a little more exciting, ya’ll this glitter crossbody is for you. It has a modern shape and sleek texture that is overlaid with a FABULOUS glitter finish. The chain is a bright violet, which makes the handle the focal point of the piece instead of the bag itself, which is BRILLIANT! I’d definitely add this to a shimmery, adventurous outfit like this.
This quilted crossbody bag has so much body. I love how puffy the quilting is on this, because it just looks like it’s ready to have fun. It has a zip top and is easily big enough for your essentials and a little more. I’d let this crossbody bag bring this velvet streetwear to the next level!
Guys, I can’t say enough how different every quilted bag can be! This Saint Laurent shoulder bag breaks away from the normal glossy texture and instead boasts a beautiful fuzzy tweed exterior! Whereas most quilted bags sharpen your looks, this one will soften it! I’d pair this bag with a powerful fall look like this.
I love how glossy and vibrant this bag is. The diamond pattern and unique square shape make it totally modern and unique. What’s also a little different about this bag is that it breaks away from the usual chain strap and instead has a more comfortable and adjustable option. Add a pop of color to some black or neutral streetwear with this crossbody!
This contemporary find is not only cute, but super affordable! It’s just the right size for your essentials and has a stylish leather strap. Try it with a workwear outfit like this to really elevate your style!
This wouldn’t really be a list of the top quilted handbags if we didn’t have a Chanel bag on the list. They invented the things! This bag comes with all the glitz and glam of a normal quilted handbag, but cranks it up to ten with the holographic finish! It’s ultra-modern, but could pair with something casual or formal.
If you love this look, they have an iridescent purple or shimmery gold! If it’s not your thing, they have plenty of toned-down colors as well.
Quilted handbags can’t be put into a box—there are so many shapes, sizes, and colors, and every silhouette can jazz up dozens of outfits!
If you’re looking for the perfect accessory to amplify your wardrobe, quilted handbags might just be the secret sauce! Whether you’re looking for something bold or basic, luxury or affordable, there is a perfect bag on this list for you.
