This list of 10 Stylish Camera Bags for Fashion Minded Mamas is for any savvy gal who wants her camera case to be a statement piece rather than an eyesore!
This list of 10 stylish camera bags for fashion minded mamas was borne from my search for a stylish & cute camera bag. I recently purchased a new DSLR and lens, but couldn’t find any camera bag in stores that wasn’t flat out ugly.
Shopping for camera bags at large retailers is not an option for anyone who wants something that makes a style statement. Most camera bags look like the one at left. Even worse than the look is the Nikon, Canon, etc….emblazoned on the case (and usually on the strap).
Stylish Camera Bag Search: I decided to search for a camera bag that met 3 criteria: 1) It needed to be stylish and cute~an accessory rather than an eyesore. 2) It needed to hold my camera (lenses and accessories), car keys and iPhone (so that I could leave my purse in the car if needed). 3) It needed to be reasonably priced.
After a good bit of online shopping, I found a few great looking bags that I’d be happy to carry to any event~wedding, graduation, prom, etc….Best of all, most of my picks are very budget savvy and most look like purses!
Savvy suggestion: These are all bags that I considered for myself, but tastes are personal. I recommend reading reviews and searching for online images of the bags you are considering.
So here are my picks for 10 stylish camera bags for fashion minded mamas. I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts~especially if you have other stylish bag resources to share! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
10 Stylish Camera Bags
(For Fashion Minded Mamas)
The Ona Brooklyn is a top tier premium leather camera bag carried by many serious photographers. It appeared at the top of my search for stylish bags, but it comes at a hefty price tag:$350. This is out of my budget, but this bag deserves honorable mention and might fit someone else’s budget. This would be a “lifetime bag” that would only get better with time.
The Propado Vintage Messenger camera bag is PU leather, and I love the light and dark contrast.
PU leather can be shiny and a bit different in person than in photos. This bag got one review, but it was a 5 star. The price is great at less than $30.
This Koolertron Vintage Shoulder Messenger Bag is a waterproof PU leather messenger bag that easily accommodates most DSLRs. It also comes in yellow and black, but the red makes the biggest style statement. $32.99
The Cheeky Lime Ava by Lochos Bags comes in several colors, but this metallic is by far my fave.
This camera bag holds most DSLR’s and up to 3 lenses. It gets mostly good reviews and at less than $30, I’d almost buy it just to use as a purse.
The Kattee Vintage shoulder bag in white PU leather is a lighter look for styling a camera bag. The white would be perfect in Spring and Summer when clothing is light and breezy. The price for this bag is less than $40.
This Kelly Moore color block camera bag is super stylish and would definitely rock any photographer’s outfit. The price is a bit too hefty for me, but for some, $180 isn’t a deal breaker for a bag as cute as this one.
The Jo Totes Gracie Camera Bag is a manmade leather that has the look of a purse with the functionality of a camera bag.
The Gracie comes in a cool mint that would look great in Spring with white, light attire. The reviews of this bag are positive; the price point is $119.
This Evecase Messenger Camera Bag has a great look, gets great reviews, and has dropped from a list price of $99.99 to $29.99. This was the biggest price drop I found on camera bags, and this looks like something from a really cool outdoor outfitter’s store.
The S-Zone vintage canvas messenger is a casual but cute option. It is also waterproof, and the light colored straps on dark grey canvas leather definitely make a style statement. The price for this bag is less than $30.
My Camera Bag Pick: the Koolertron Vintage PU leather.. It is a “knockoff” of sorts of the Ona Brooklyn made of PU leather. It has hundreds of great reviews and dropped in price from $50 to $37.99. I love it! Pics below….
