Designer arm candy without the price tag

Social media is a dangerous place. We get googly eyed when we see celebs flaunting their designer bags, and being constantly exposed to such snaps has triggered a bag obsession in us. But since we don’t have such deep pockets (and nor are we bag-borrowing buddies with the likes of Ah Jie and Jeanette), we’ll have to settle for lookalikes (sometimes).

Here are some great high street dupes of our favourite celebrity ‘It’ bags. You’re welcome!

Zoe Tay’s Tod's D-Styling Mini

We did a double take when we spotted this Zara bowling bag that looks just like Ah Jie’s Tod’s one. It is not made of leather, but for the price, we’re not complaining.

Fiona Fussi’s Chanel PVC Flap Bag

Clear bags are still very much on trend and we adore this Chanel clear bag for its candy-coloured pastel hues. But if you haven’t got a couple of grand to splash out on a, erm, plastic bag, opt for this ALDO lookalike instead.

Tong Bingyu’s Balenciaga Triangle Bag

We think French Connection hit the jackpot with their take on the Balenciaga Triangle bag, and we love it for its striking similarities (it’s made from 100% leather too!) and much more wallet-friendly price.
