Style to Steal: Celine Bag Look-alikes
Fourteen more-affordable ways to wear our favorite purse silhouette.

Comments () | Published May 31, 2012

It’s been a long, long time since we’ve been as taken with a handbag style as the Celine luggage tote (the similarly shaped Boston bag and Phantom tote are also truly things of beauty). Seen on everyone from top style bloggers to the Kardashians (duh), the expanding style nails the workplace-chic vibe while being, for an It bag, pleasantly unfussy. It’s also, unfortunately, ultra-expensive and extremely sold out. But never fear—we are nothing if not resourceful shoppers, so we dug around for similar styles at much more reasonable price points. They’re not exact knockoffs (that feels slightly skeezy, anyway), but the simplicity and the silhouette are still there. If you’re in the market for a new summer bag, this is the slideshow for you.
