Affordable Designer Handbag Dupes

Affordable Designer Handbag Dupes

There was once a time when the thought of owning my own designer bag was a very distant dream. Luckily for us, the high street takes influence heavily from the more high end and designer world. Meaning that we can often find affordable designer handbag dupes of our favourite designers on the high street. I know some aren’t keen on the dupe way of things and tbh I can see both sides. But for teenage girls and ladies, this is one way to feel you have something special at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. I often spot dupes when shopping for bits and bobs and thought I would compile a post including some of my favourite designer inspired pieces.

The Basket Bag

I came across this bag and thought it was a perfect replica for the Cult Gaia which is priced at £135. This is marked around half of that cost and for an inspired bag I think its a great trend investment though not the most practical of purchases.

Bamboo Beach Bag $58

Cult Gaia £135


Chain Bags

These could be classed as similar just down to the shape and added chain detailing. The fabrics used of course will be miles apart and the finish same. But for a cheaper inspired by bag, this ticks a few boxes.

Structured Tote

It has to be my bag of dreams and one that I’m very unlikely to own unless I win the Lottery. The stylish and structured Hermes bag is a favourite bag of the rich. As some of you will know buying a Hermes is a huge task in itself. You need to be on waiting lists etc its definitely not a bag you can just walk in and buy, well unless you’re a huge celebrity. I’m absolutely loving Aldo’s take on this classic and it’s one I will be investing in myself soon.

Boy Bag

I actually bought a dupe of the Boy Bag a few months ago for an event. Absolutely not a patch on the real deal but it added a touch of something extra to my outfit and it was super affordable. Below I have featured the Chanel Boy bag and one that is similar in shape etc.

I have been a huge Valentino fan for many years. So many high street stores have taken inspiration from their rock stud range. Below is a bag that I found that has a similar feel to the Valentino bag.

Rockstud £15.99

Quilted Cross Body Bag

Gucci is a brand that holds its resale value so is always going to be a great investment for the future compared to other high style items. I love the shape and versatility of the Gucci Marmont bag and below I have featured a bag which has the Gucci quilted look but at a fraction of the cost of the real deal.

I could have spent days going through websites searching for dupes or copies. Some are definitely inspired by pieces others are verging on copies. But whatever side of the fence you stand on there will always be some sort of inspiration or vision taken from the high-end fashion houses. I hope you guys have enjoyed my affordable designer handbag dupes post as much as I have creating it.

    Wow, I can hardly see any difference between the Cult Gaia and the bamboo beach bag! A great find.

    The replicas look as good as the original designer pieces and I don’t mind using the dupes anytime if it looks that good for half the cost. Cult Gaia is my fav from this list.

    I love this! I love a nice handbag but cant justify the price tag, so I am all for a dupe! I love the red one most of all!

    I have to admit that I would never buy myself an expensive handbag as the kids would wreck it, so its dupes everytime for me

    Like Kara mentioned, I would never buy an expensive bag because the kids would destroy it, lol! Plus, I’ve nowhere to go to show it off! Still, what a gorgeous selection of bags!

    Wow! I can’t believe how realistic the dupes look. They’re such bargains too in comparison.

    I really like the chain bag and also the rockstud bag looks really nice too.

    My mummy loves the designer ‘IT’ bags and has invested in one or two. We like the cost of high street replicas too and some of them look just like the real things!

    My friend has that bamboo bag (the cheaper version of the Cult Gaia one) and its so gorgeous. It has been on my wishlist forever because it is perfect for summer!

    So many amazing dupes! I do love a designer handbag but they are so expensive!
