Off-duty model fashion always piques our interest – especially when covetable bags are involved – and few models get more photographer attention than Victoria’s Secret Angels. Their individual styles aren’t just on display in lingerie and swimwear shoots; they’re even more prominent in everyday moments. From Alessandra Ambrosio’s on-trend Fendi to Adriana Lima’s well-priced basic black tote to Candice Swanepoel’s classic Chanel Flap, there’s enough variety to suit every personality – and with the frugally-priced alternatives I found, every budget as well.
Swimwear ads may be everywhere right now, but they were shot in the winter, meaning Alessandra’s life is pretty much a perpetual summer – and in all-white, she’s dressed for the occasion. Fendi DOTCOM at Neiman Marcus for $2,900.
Frugal Alternative: Milly Blake Medium Satchel (at Barneys Warehouse for $299, from $465)
With a name like Lily, a penchant for flowers is expected, and she’s collected all the best on this circular mini bag.
Frugal Alternative: Glamorous Floral Embroidered Pouch (on ASOS for $23.72)
She may be becoming a mama, but with this studded Alex Wang, her style certainly hasn’t softened. Alexander Wang Rogue on NET-A-PORTER for $975.
Frugal Alternative: Rebecca Minkoff Avery Crossbody Bag (at Bloomingdale’s for $175)
If you’ve been looking for a black work tote under $500, Adriana’s got you covered. Henri Bendel West 57th Carryall at Henri Bendel for $398.
Frugal Alternative: Joelle Hawkens Junket Leather Satchel (on NastyGal for $285)
With over-the-knee boots and a mini sweater dress, Candice gives this ubiquitous bag a fresh feel. Chanel Flap Bag on Fashionphile for $3,596 (from $4,900).
Frugal Alternative: Rebecca Minkoff Affair Convertible Quilted Leather Bag (on THEOUTNET.com for $107.25, from $195)
