We have received quite a few reader requests for various Chloé bags lately. And yes, we agree, if there’s ONE thing Chloé is exceptionally good at, it’s their bag range. The French fashion house always manages to incorporate that certain je ne sais quoi-factor that makes every one of their bag styles so desirable. My current personal favorite is the “Drew”, a cute little rounded crossbody bag on a metallic chain. Sadly, Drew’s price tag isn’t quite as cute.

Unita “Wony” Genuine Leather Chain Bag

UPDATE (08/02/2015): If there’d be something like a “Best Bag Dupe“-Award, can we please all agree this one would probably go out to these gorgeous Chloé Drew dupes by Unita?! I am beyond obsessed with the pastel mint and lavender color and love that these are sturdy-looking high quality bags made of genuine cowhide leather. According to the product description, the bags are being manufactured with utmost care in South Korea. I know these babies ain’t cheap with a price tag of over $100, but if one can trust the pictures, the price is definitely worth the investment. The bag comes in 5 colors: black, tan, mint, lavender and taupe grey (what’s your personal fave?).

Forever 21 Faux Leather Lock Crossbody Bag

Of course Forever 21 couldn’t pass up on creating a “Drew”-inspired bag of their own. F21’s “Drew” is not as much of a 1:1 dupe like BagInc’s version, but it is still veeeery similar to the Chloé original. $22.90 and available in either black, tan or cream faux leather.

A spot-on “Drew” dupe comes from Jessica Buurman. Their “Calia” bag is made of faux leather and comes in 7 different colors, but is also considerably pricier than the previous steals at $92.

Lush Parisian Pin Crossbody Chain Leather Bag

If you’re on the lookout for a high-quality Chloé Drew dupe made of genuine leather, then the Parisian Pin Crossbody Chain Bag by Lush Bags is probably best suited for you. The design is spot-on, but you’d have to spend $129.99 on this “steal”. The bigger leather-strap Chloé Drew dupe version is also available by the way (see hereamazon).

ALDO “Friedline” Rounded Crossbody Bag

And lastly, if you just like the visual concept of Chloé’s Drew and are not after a perfect look-alike, then ALDO‘s “Friedline” might be the best fit. The Chloé inspiration is clearly visible, but overall the bag still holds its own.

The eco-conscious Stella McCartney has designed yet another great Chamois Falabella bag made from 100% Polyester, and still exceptionally fabulous. You can carry this roomy shoulder bag to work along with your laptop bag and it will still look great when you meet up with friends or a hot date afterwards. It will even transition nicely into the weekend. And who doesn’t love the hardware detail? That little bit of edge gives off the perfect amount of playfulness on an otherwise classic shape. The original does have a pretty high price tag considering the materials used, but the construction is flawless. Loving the look but can’t afford the real thing quite yet? We’ve got a pretty sweet tentative option below.

Urban Expressions “City Lights” Chain-Trimmed Bag

Urban Expressions is another fantastic vegan handbag brand that carries lots of well-priced styles that look just like high-end designer originals. I would wear this particular bag with a modern silhouette to enhance its urban feel, keeping my outfit tailored and accessories minimal. Some faux-leather leggings and a tunic or some wide-leg jeans and a fitted knit top would work perfectly; especially since the detailed chain embellishment will draw in all the attention you need! Excited yet? Besides black, you can also get it in other colors, too.

Clutches. I love them, but they sure aren’t the most practical form of bags. Especially those of the evening kind. Clutches usually make me feel like Captain Hook because I always feel tied up with a clutch in my hand. That’s why I totally love Valentino‘s “Va Va Voom” clutch bag with its ingenious studded front handle. Why don’t all clutches have this fingers-free thingy? Total game-changer! Too bad I don’t have $2.145 to afford this beauty of a bag.

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to get the Va Va Voom effect of Valentino, look no further because Street Level has your back. Their clutch may not be an identical copy, but all the key elements are still there. And did I mention it’s $34.90 only and also available in red as well?

Fashion magazines are consistently talking about the day clutch. While carrying all your essentials in a bag the size of a large envelope isn’t exactly feasible, how can you make a clutch work during the day? It’s easy, you just toss it in your larger work tote and then pull it out for lunch, a quick run to Starbucks, or keep it handy for an impromptu dinner after work. This particular style by Valentino is perfect. It has great proportion, construction and just enough edginess to make it less “boardroom” and more “downtown chic”. But although this particular clutch would get a lot of use, it may not be quite enough to justify the price. As always, we present you more accessible options. Check it out below!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Large “Selma” Stud-Trim Saffiano Clutch

UPDATE (08/15/2013): Whoa, look at this fab Valentino dupe by MICHAEL Michael Kors! Totally looks like the high-end designer clutch, but actually costs only $108! I also love the Saffiano leather which is usually mainly used for and most known because of Prada’s famous Saffiano bags. Available in a lot of different colors like tan, taupe, turquoise, red and purple!

GoJane Pyramid Stud Trim Clutch

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “GJSHIP60” to get free shipping on your $60+ order!

Just as lovely, this version by GoJane is exactly the type of clutch you need for everyday and costs way less than the original designer inspiration. Place all your essentials inside and then place it in your larger tote to make it easier to pull out when you’re on the go. It will also keep everything organized and easier to spot inside your larger bag as well! Wear this clutch with everything; from your pencil skirt and blouse to your jeans on the weekend for brunch. The detachable strap is fantastic; and I’m sure you’ll find a dozen ways to wear your new bag! Want to add a little glam twist to your look? You can also get this style in peach or gold metallic faux leather.

Buffalo Stud Clutch Bag

Another great steal and also made of completely vegan leather is this cute look-a-like clutch by Buffalo. These are a bit more expensive than the previous style, but the hardware is very similar to the original. The wristlet detail is just fabulous because it helps keep your hands free when you need them most (perhaps you’re going out for cocktails or meeting friends at an after work networking event). I really like that you have the option of the taupe color as well because it’s perfect if you wear a lot of brown or prefer a lighter palette for your key wardrobe pieces.

Fellow vegans and vegetarians unite! Stella McCartney has created an all vegan faux leather handbag to mimic the lavish style, without resorting to animals to achieve a luxurious appeal. Not only is Stella McCartney a lifelong devotee to vegetarianism, she has also an impeccable tailoring and wonderful taste to fulfill the desirable expensive, leather look. This Shaggy Deer Falabella Fold Over Clutch is bold and has a super edgy look and ultimately can be the key accessory to any outfit. As much as I would love to own any piece from her vegan collection someday, especially this one, I can’t afford to pay such a grand price. However, there is no reason to fret since we have such beautiful and affordable alternatives below!

Latico “Crawford” Clutch

There is no reason we shouldn’t indulge in the Stella McCartney style, especially when the price tag is less than 13% (sale price!) of the real deal’s sale price. This “Crawford” Clutch by Latico is certainly more affordable, yet it looks just as expensive. And though the silhouette and structure of this clutch is minimal the overall result is maximum impact. The chain embellishments are edgy but chic at the same time and for utmost versatility one can wear it with a drop-in chained strap or simply as a clutch. Additionally, this clutch comes in an array of colors such as red, taupe, metallic white and mocha leather.

Traffic People “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag

A favorite steal of mine is this “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag by Traffic People. It is currently on sale for £25.68, but still pertains and upholds to the appearance of the Falabella Fold Over Clutch. Here it is pictured in the black color; however, the navy blue is just as amazing! It is not only efficient in functionality, but also the best priced look-a-like alternative. For extra savings, one day shipping is free if you are located anywhere in the UK or EU. Although international shipping is available, the downside is that shipping prices become a bit steep (£20 flat fee per delivery for all non-EU countries).
