The trending designer bag style affordable alternatives
- Padded Bags
The small white Gucci Marmont bag and Bottega Venetta cassette bag are probably one of the most seen ‘it’ bags for 2021 but these padded quilted bags are just as fashion. forward and in style for 2021. They don’t come much more similar than this cream purse with it’s gold crossbody chain. I also found the Gucci Matelasse bag which is similar to the Marmont on sale!
- Slouchy Bags
The beauty of a slouchy bag is that you can fill them without worrying about misshaping them as the don’t have structure to begin with. Bottega Venetta’s The Pouch version maybe gorgeous but these slouchy style bag alternatives are perfect for an easy laid back Summer look.
- Mini Bags
While Jacquemus still leads the pack when it comes to mini bags. SHEIN bags have come through this year and have so many cute alternatives in lots of different colors and finishes.
- Brightly colored bags on a budget
Versace has some of my favorite pastel colored bags with acrylic chain detailing for 2021 but these bags still cover both of those trends without breaking the bank.
- Tote Bags
Designer tote bags with the brand name boldly displayed across the front are one of the hottest trends for Summer 2021. Check out these equally practical but way more affordable options. From SHEIN bags to Revolve, there’s beachy and more formal styles to shop.
- Extra Large Totes
Whether leather, canvas, dark or light extra large totes were seen all over the runways for 2021. Made for carrying your entire life around and especially great for busy Mom’s and as carryons.

Remember that scene in the first Sex And The City movie with Jennifer Hudson and her Louis Vuitton? Well, another option for affordable designer bags is to rent them. Vivrelle bag rentals range from $99-$279 per month depending on your tier. The higher your tier, the more expensive the bags and jewelry you have access to.
