5 Affordable Dupes for the Most Coveted Designer Handbags

There’s no shame in splurging on a classic handbag that’ll last you a lifetime, but these affordable alternatives are just as nice (and less than half the price).

Handbags are a staple in any woman’s closet. I don’t mind splurging on a classic style that will last me a lifetime, but sometimes it’s difficult to splurge when your favourite designer bag is more than a month’s rent. Luckily, the market is full of incredible dupes, and I did some digging so you don’t have to. Take a peek at 5 affordable dupes of the most popular handbags on the market below. 

High: The Dionysus suede mini bag by Gucci, $2,030

This style is stunning. I have had my eye on this Gucci cross body for too long, but I simply cannot justify draining my bank account. I’m proud to report that I’ve found a dupe that’s almost too good to be true from a website called Fashion Drug (a more appropriate addiction). This design balances chic and edgy in a way I never thought possible. This almost identical dupe is just a sliver of the price!

Low: Tiger Bag Black from Fashion Drug, $120

 

 

High: Soho Leather Disco Bag by Gucci, $1,170

While we’ve got our mind on Gucci, this is another classic style that I often see (and envy). A crossbody style that is easy to pair and surprisingly offers more space inside than you would expect! The dupe from Windsor is not as exact as the Tiger Bag but it is very similar in style, and for $20, I’m not complaining! Easy to pair, and even easier to wear.

Low: Black Chevron Stitch Crossbody Bag from Windsor, $20

High: Baby Sac de Jour Leather Tote by Saint Laurent, $3,675

A classic shape that matches well with everything and stores a lot of goodies! The bigger, the better, am I right? This style is sold in multiple colours, but you can’t go wrong with black. Kate Spade brings us a similar replica at a discounted price, the corners of this handbag are wider and more rounded, but manages to serve its purpose. The quality of Kate Spade bags are definitely worth their cost.

Low: Cameron Street Teegan by Kate Spade, $358

 

High: Bucket Bag by Mansur Gavriel, $625

When Mansur Gavriel released its first bucket bag back in 2013, the bag sold out in just over an hour. Since then, it’s been seen on it-girls around the world. And I’ve gotta admit — I love me a bucket bag! They’re so casual and chic all at the same time. I found this amazing dupe from Forever 21. My biggest piece of advice, purchase now and decide later. Forever 21 tends to run out of stock quick!

Low: Crossbody Bucket Bag by Forever 21, $45.90

High: The Drew Leather Shoulder Bag by Chloé, $2436

This pretty little purse from Chloé has been making rounds on social media for quite some time, but it still has a special place in our hearts. The shape and gold detailing make this purse trendy, yet timeless, and Express has a dupe that’s almost spot on — steal the look for a fraction of the cost! While it’s not pink, it’s still the perfect little pop of colour for those that who tire of black, but want something neutral enough to go with their entire closet.

Low: Turnlock Crossbody Bag from Express, $39.90
