15 Stylish Diaper Bags Under $100

If you’re anything like me, you might be reluctant to spend too much money on something that only lasts for a short amount of time. I resisted the diaper bag — only because every diaper bag I saw was so hideous, and why can’t I just stuff some diapers into my oversized handbag?

Yet here I am with a 3-year-old, and I still need a water-resistant, organized bag to lug around his drinks, snacks, clothes and toys. Especially if you’re planning on having multiple kids (but even if you’re not), the right diaper bag will last for years. And with today’s latest designs, there are plenty of diaper bags that you’ll want to use even without the diapers.

Finding a good-looking diaper bag isn’t difficult nowadays, with everyone from Marc Jacobs to Kate Spade designing their own $400+ mom bags. But I found the most stylish diaper bags that cost less than 100 bucks:

  • Babymel Satchel, $75 1 of 14
    Babymel Satchel, $75
    I think this bag is incredible stylish and functional for costing less than $100.
    Buy from: Babymel
  • Skip Hop Duo, $58 2 of 14
    Skip Hop Duo, $58
    The Duo is an all-around fantastic diaper bag, designed with a mom in mind. It has everything you could want in a diaper bag, plus plenty of different styles to choose from. I'm partial to their new summery stripes.
    Buy from: Skip Hop
  • Skip Hop Versa, $70 3 of 14
    Skip Hop Versa, $70
    Finally a stylish diaper bag that doesn't look like a diaper bag — and doesn't cost $200. And because it's coming from Skip Hop, you know it'll be as convenient as their other more diaper-ish bags.

  • JJ Cole Canvas Satchel Diaper Bag, $69.99 4 of 14
    JJ Cole Canvas Satchel Diaper Bag, $69.99
    I recently fell in love with this diaper bag when I took it on a family vacation. It fits everything you could want, and it's pretty enough to use as an ordinary handbag. This bag landed in our Readers' Choice category because it's certainly a crowd favorite, and I highly recommend!
    Buy from: Babies R Us
  • Skip Hop Studio, $90 5 of 14
    Skip Hop Studio, $90
    One of the more stylish Skip Hop choices, their Studio bags have 14 pockets, a quilted changing pad, water-resistant fabric, and an antimicrobial lining. It also makes a good-looking laptop bag.

  • Jonathan Adler Loves Skip Hop, $34 – $80 6 of 14
    Jonathan Adler Loves Skip Hop, $34 - $80
    How often can you get a designer-stamped bag for this kind of price? Design guru Jonathan Adler teamed up with diaper-bag-extraordinaire Skip Hop for a line of designer diaper bags that you can actually afford.

  • JJ Cole Collections Mode Diaper Bag, $59.99 7 of 14
    JJ Cole Collections Mode Diaper Bag, $59.99
    In my opinion, this is one of the best values for your dollar. I've known plenty of people who rave about their JJ Cole diaper bags (this one in particular), and it's a great value.

  • Skip Hop Duo Double, $80 8 of 14
    Skip Hop Duo Double, $80

    Timi & Leslie Dual Bag, $55.99
    Another diaper bag designed for two, this Timi & Leslie bag has two separate compartments for better organization, plus all the other features you'd expect — like stroller straps, insulated bottle pockets, and an included changing pad.
    Buy from: Timi & Leslie
  • 7 A.M. Enfant Barcelona Bag, $84 10 of 14
    7 A.M. Enfant Barcelona Bag, $84
    Forget about fashion for a second — this is one of the most functional all-purpose bags that you'll use for decades. Besides being way roomier than it looks at first glance, the entire bag is made from that super durable, water-repellant material as 7 A.M. Enfant's coveted stroller bunting. It's stylish in a sporty kind of way.
    Buy from: 7 A.M. Enfant
  • Baby Star Totes, $60 11 of 14
    Baby Star Totes, $60
    These bright and happy totes are as pretty as they are functional. And then when you're done toting diapers, you can use it for your beach towel and sunscreen.

  • Petunia Pickle Bottom Satellite Sling, $99 12 of 14
    Petunia Pickle Bottom Satellite Sling, $99
    Petunia Pickle Bottom is known for their coveted (and pricey) diaper bags, and their new gender-neutral Scout line is no different. But if you're looking for a diaper bag for dad that's under $100, their Satellite Sling is sleek and masculine while still being able to hold the baby essentials.
    Buy from: Scout by Petunia Pickle Bottom
  • Skip Hop Bento, $99 13 of 14
    Skip Hop Bento, $99
    Another great gender-neutral find, the Skip Hop Bento is a great deal because besides getting a fantastic Skip Hop diaper bag (with all of the Skip Hop features we love), it also comes with their Bento Mealtime Kit, designed to fit inside of this diaper bag.
    Buy from: Skip Hop
  • Mrs. Smith Classic Pack, $99.99 14 of 14
    Mrs. Smith Classic Pack, $99.99
