Meghan Trainor may be able to wear her Louis Vuitton, but us college students may need something a little more affordable. Finding alternative options for your luxury fashion taste — especially without breaking the bank — can definitely be a challenge. Designer items are usually highly desired for a reason, as their top quality and celebrity stamp of approval drives consumers to want to purchase them. However, TikTokers, influencers, and on-a-budget Gen Zers have found a way to score high fashion items without spending their entire week’s paycheck.
Designer dupes are definitely not new, and can actually be found all over — if you know where to look. Luckily, Amazon and Walmart serve as a hub for all things LV dupes! That’s why I’ve rounded up five of the best Louis Vuitton Dupes online for my student-budget fashionistas.
- Bumbag Dupe
Much more glamorous than it sounds, the Belt Bag by M MOTIKUL ($25) on Amazon is the perfect dupe for LV’s Bumbag Monogram Canvas handbag. It’s made of durable vegan leather, has adjustable straps, and is big enough to hold your everyday essentials.
- Makeup Pouch Dupe
According to pro Amazon-item-finder and TikToker @ccierial, this makeup bag by BAGCRAZY is the best dupe for LV’s classic Cosmetic Pouch. “There’s actually a lot of room in the bag… it’s so cute,” she says. So consider snagging the BAGCRAZY Large Makeup Bag ($31) before it’s gone!
- Top Handle Bag Dupe
A dupe for the Speedy Bandouliere 25 purse, this Lacel Urwebin Top Handle Bag on Amazon ($36) has all of the same features. “This bag has a very nice design. Looks very expensive. Interior can hold a lot so it is great for traveling. Very well made,” says one reviewer. It comes with two handles and a long shoulder strap, and it’s the perfect purse to dress up or down.
- Tote bag Dupe
Now for the item I’m sure you’ve been waiting for: an LV Canvas Tote Dupe! This T.Sheep Checkered Tote sold on Walmart’s online store ($27) is a classic rendition of LV’s most famous tote. It features checkered vegan leather with gold detailing and is perfect for pairing with your high-fashion looks.
