High Street Handbags That Look Like Prada Bag Dupes

It’s true that the right handbag can make or break an outfit, but sadly most of us aren’t blessed with the funds to buy multiple luxury designer bags. Luckily for us, the high street is never far behind the trends, creating fantastic designer-inspired versions for a fraction of the price.

With the Y2K trend in full swing, there’s a bag shape all brands are loving right now, whether designer or mainstream. Best described as a small shoulder bag, it’s the kind of bag everyone wore in the 2000s, all but disappeared in the 2010s, and now everyone’s showing up again in 2022.


Prada Cleo Leather Shoulder Bag, £1,800, Selfridges

Prada’s Cleo bag (above) is a prime example of the classic shape. However, we’d be hard-pressed to find the £1,800 price tag anytime soon. Luckily, that’s not necessary either, as the high street is awash with this form of bag at the moment, from ASOS and H&M to ZARA and Primark.

We’ve found 13 high street crossbody bags that have a strong air of designer shape, starting at just £4. There are matte blacks, just like those from Prada, as well as patents, metallics, nylon, faux croc and more.
