9 Affordable Birkin Bag Dupes and Look-Alikes You Can Buy Online

Do you love the way the Hermès Birkin bag looks but can’t afford its hefty price tag? I’ve found 9 affordable Birkin bag look-alikes for those of us who can’t spend $10,000+ on a bag.

Paris, France - October, 1, 2022: woman wearing navy blue ostrich leather Birkin handbag from Hermes, street style outfit details.

What is a Birkin Bag?

The Hermès Birkin bag is the most sought-after designer handbag on the planet. The Birkin bag was born in 1984, when British actress Jane Birkin was sitting next to Jean-Louis Dumas, the Executive Chairman of Hermès, on a flight. She was complaining to him that she couldn’t find a bag that was able to carry everything she needed as a young mother.

He sketched what is now known as the Birkin bag right then and there. It was a spacious rectangular bag with saddle stitching and a burnished flap.

This used Birkin bag retails for $19,500 via WGACA.

There are only a limited number of these beloved Birkin bags every year, and getting your hands on one is like winning the lottery—and that’s if you can afford their hefty price tags and have the patience to wait for a coveted piece. The least expensive Birkin starts at $8,500 and used Birkin bags can sometimes retail for even higher prices due to their scarcity. (What Goes Around Comes Around has a great selection of used Birkin bags.)

Now, here are some bags that have a similar look to the Birkin bag but with MUCH more affordable price tags. Happy shopping!

8 Affordable Birkin Bag Look-Alikes

Lee Rdziwill Pebbled Double Bag


This Tory Burch Lee Radziwill bag inspired me to write this post in the first place! I adore the look and quality of Tory Burch handbags—I’ve had mine for years and couldn’t be happier with it. The Lee Radziwill Bag is crafted in Italian leather and has a very Birkin look and feel to it (it comes in a few different colors, too, if you don’t like this one).

Now, Tory Burch is by no means “cheap”—at least not in my book. But their handbags are considerably less expensive than a Birkin, and they are great quality for the price!

2.) MICHAEL KORS Emilia Small Pebbled Leather Satchel

This Michael Kors Emilia Pebbled Leather satchel is a less expensive alternative to the bag above and a good everyday bag to carry all of your essentials. It opens up to reveal a spacious interior with a center zip pocket for easy organization. It also has an optional crossbody strap and can be accessorized with a colorful scarf. Michael Kors creates some of the best bags, often with five-star reviews, and this pebble leather design is certainly one of them.

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO The Studio Calfskin Leather Top Handle Bag

3.) SALVATORE FERRAGAMO Studio Top-Handle Bag

Heads up, this is the most expensive Birkin “look-alike” in this post! I realize “affordable” is a relative term, and I am categorizing it as anything that’s less than a Birkin (which is pretty much every bag in the world). This BEAUTIFUL Salvatore Ferragamo bag is a designer luxury leather bag that will be sure to turn heads and last a lifetime – but its price tag is lower than a Birkin. This is a closet must-have and one that will complement anyone’s on-the-go lifestyle.

This beautiful handbag is made by Aldo and sold via Zappos. I love buying from Zappos because the shipping is fast and free, and returns are also easy and free. Plus, the main materials that make up this bag are made from at least 20 percent recycled content, and it comes in two other colors. The double bag feature of this handbag makes it a stylish carry-all for work or errands, as well.

8.) DHgate Fashion Bag with Soft Genuine Leather

Personally, I’ve had good luck ordering replica designer bags from DHgate.com. However, it is always a bit of a gamble anytime you order from this site. (Read my full DHgate review.) That said, this Birkin dupe has hundreds of positive reviews and customer photos to back it up. This purse also includes a dust cover, a real lock, and 2 keys, as well as a scarf and horse charm. This bag also comes in 19 other colors!

SHEIN Lychee Pattern Women's Handbag With Shoulder Strap - Crossbody Bag

9.) Shein Lychee Pattern Women’s Handbag With Shoulder Strap

Saved the cheapest Birkin bag look-alike for last! This faux leather bag from Shein is just $10. This is a medium-sized and durable handbag that can be used for all seasons. I’ve bought handbags from Shein in the past, and they are ridiculously cheap. While they are fine if you plan to only use them once in a while, they aren’t the best quality for daily use. Just something to be aware of. I have an entire post dedicated to Shein shopping tips as well as a VERY detailed Shein review post.

Now I’m curious, which of these Birkin bag look-alikes is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
