As much as I love fashion, I’ve never considered myself to be a “bag person,” That is, until now.
And now that I’ve discovered all the ridiculously cute shoulder bags, crossbodies, and grab bags, all I want to do is own literally *all* of them.
Unfortunately, most of my favorite bags are *way* out of my budget. I mean, who can afford to shell out $2K for a Dior bag? Definitely not me!
Fortunately, Amazon has *a ton* of affordable dupes for all the classic designer bags that will forever be out of my reach.
Check out my favorites below.

The Bag: Dior Saddle Bag
The iconic Dior Saddle Bag is one of the most celebrity-beloved with Rihanna, Jisoo, and Bella Hadid all spotted carrying the bag. And it’s no wonder why — the unique silhouette is somehow both trendy and an instant classic. But at $2K, the bag is *well* out of reach. Luckily, we found one that’s completely in our price range.
The Bag: Jacquemus Le Chiquito Clutch
One of the newer cool kids on the block is the Jacquemus Le Chiquito Clutch, a mini grab bag that comes in tons of dopamine-inducing colors. The bag is beloved by celebrities like Jennie Kim, Ariana Grande, Beyonce, and Kylie Jenner. It’s also been spotted on the Gossip Girl reboot and on Euphoria season 2.
The Bag: Prada Re-Edition 2005 Nylon Shoulder Bag
Ever since early aughts fashion has become trendy again, it’s only natural that the former it-bag by Prada would make a comeback. Pretty much every celebrity has been spotted sporting the bag over the last two years including Hailey Bieber, Camila Mendes, Shay Mitchell, and so many more.
The Bag: Jimmy Choo Bon Bon Micro Crystal Bucket Bag
Now that the fashion world has signed off on sequin for the daytime, there are *so* many more bags to choose from (as if we didn’t have enough already!). This silver rhinestone bucket bag is way too cute to ignore. Plus, it just so happens to remind us of a certain Jimmy Choo bag…
The Bag: Bottega Veneta Jodie Tote
You know that woven knotted handbag that Hailey Bieber owns in basically every color imaginable? Yeah, that would be the Bottega Veneta Jodie and it costs upwards of $2.5K. Fortunately, we found a brand on Amazon that recreated the bag in just as many colors. Our pick? The emerald green. Not only has it been dubbed the biggest color of Fall 2023, but it also happens to be one of Hailey’s favorites.
The Bag: Hermes Birkin Bag
Perhaps the biggest it-bag of them all, the Birkin Bag is one of the most coveted status symbols among the elite. The bag can cost anywhere from $10K-$250K, even pre-owned. And even if you can afford that kind of money for a bag, that’s not a guarantee that you can get your hands on one. Not only is there a waitlist, but you usually have to know someone to get your “in”. Luckily, Amazon has a few look-alikes that are nearly as beautiful as the real thing.
The Bag: Paco Rabanne Chainmail Tote Bag
Can anyone resist the sparkle of a Paco Rabanne Bag? The designer created a ton of great bags but perhaps one of the most iconic is the Chainmail Tote. It’s been spotted on the arm of Emily Ratajkowski and Sienna Miller, to name a few. And with daytime sequins currently in vogue, it’s the perfect time to grab yourself a dupe.
The Bag: Prada Cleo Brushed Leather Mini Shoulder Bag
Last but definitely not least is the Prada Cleo Shoulder Bag, a simple and timeless piece. The black brushed leather version is certainly the most classic but it also comes in a ton of colors, sizes, and textures, including satin and crystals. Our favorite, though, has to be the brushed leather mini bag with the flap (see above).
