As a handbag lover, buying my Chanel Classic Flap bag was the BEST feeling ever. But I had to wait a long time and save up a lot of money before making my purchase. Sometimes you want the LOOK of a Chanel bag, but you don’t want to spend so much. In today’s post – I’m sharing how to get the look of a Chanel bag for less.
Read on for my favourite budget-friendly Chanel-inspired lookalike bags!
I’m a huge fan of Rebecca Minkoff bags – I currently own 4 different styles – and use each one a LOT! I’ve bought them on Amazon – which actually just relaunched their handbag store this week to offer the largest selection of handbags in Canada – and have spent between $100 – $300, depending on the discount I was able to score. I love the workmanship and quality of each bag – I use them heavily and never have to worry about them getting spoiled.
1) If you love the Chanel Classic Flap Bag, try the Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Affair
2) If you love the Chanel Boy Bag, try the Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Love Crossbody In a funny way, owning my Minkoff Quilted Affair bag made me realize that the Chanel Classic flap bag would be a good investment – because I used my Quilted Affair ALL the time! My Minkoff bag is the larger size (which is harder to find) and has dimensions similar to the Chanel Jumbo flap. The Quilted Affair is most frequently available in the popular mini size – and has colours to match ANY outfit!

I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of the Chanel Boy bag – I like the look of it – but not enough to spend thousands of dollars on it. Which is why I’m SO happy with the Minkoff Love Crossbody bag. It shares similar features to the Boy bag – such as the raised border around the flap, turnlock closure and partial leather strap – and is the cutest everyday bag.
3) If you love the Chanel Wallet on a Chain (WOC), try the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Love Crossbody
Rebecca Minkoff bags aren’t just known for Chanel-influenced styles – although those seem to be the ones I favour! Two other popular styles include the Mini MAC (pictured below) and the MAB Mini tote (which is next on my wishlist!)I love Chanel WOCs – they’re the perfect size for evening bags – with just enough space for a phone, money and some makeup. You can wear the chain on your shoulder or tuck it inside to use as a clutch. Minkoff carries many smaller quilted bags that serve the same purpose as the WOC. My Love Quilted Mini Clutch (pictured above in red) may have been discontinued, but this Mini Love Crossbody is also an adorable alternative – although the dimensions are pretty tiny!
