Designer handbags make such a fashion statement and, in my opinion, are definitely worth splurging on from time to time. That said, we all need to budget and we can’t go out and buy every trendy designer handbag we like (#Adulting). Luckily, with enough internet digging you can find affordable handbags that are inspired by the shapes, details and trends that the high end designers are using in creating their handbags.
To that end, I have rounded up 8 designer inspired handbags that every woman needs. Many of these handbags are closet staples – and some come in at price tags under $50. You can’t beat that! The images below are clickable with the exception of one or two bags (sorry!) so you will see those bags hyperlinked underneath their respective photo. Let’s get started:

Let me know what your favorite designer inspired handbag is! My personal favorite is probably the Gucci Sylvie dupe. The bow and chain detailing on the Sylvie is just so stunning, and I love that the lookalike bag incorporated that. I have the black bag as shown here; but it also comes in 4 other colors; similar to the Gucci Sylvie. I am definitely tempted to get myself the red as well!
If you liked this post (and like designer inspired items in general) be sure to check out my YouTube video on my Current Favorite Dupe Items. I share quite a few dupes for Gucci, Chanel and more. You can also see a live version of a couple of these bags, so if you want to get a closer look at these lookalikes before buying, watching the video is an easy way to do that!
