Two weeks ago I wrote a post about Birkin inspired handbags and had a lot of fun doing so. I wanted to create another post dedicated to the Hermes Kelly bag and its dupes because guess what – I finally have my own! I received this beautiful piece from a company called Teddy Blake and it’s pretty perfect. The price of these Hermes Kelly bag dupes still hover around £300 so they’re not exactly cheap. Teddy Blake, although mainly famous for creating dupes of other luxury bags, is still widely regarded as being in the luxury market.

The whole look of this outfit will be up tomorrow.
However, the rest of the bags that I have featured in this post are much more reasonably priced. The Kelly bag is so iconic, yet so outpriced for the majority of people that you can find dozens of fast fashion retailers stocking a bag akin to the Hermes Kelly. Let me know which one is your favourite (mine is definitely the bag that I’m carrying in the outfit picture – that’s why I got it, hehe!)
Hermes Kelly Inspired Handbags
Shop Hermes Kelly Bag dupes, 1.-9., $99 here (USA)
The Hermes Kelly dupes come in various different colours – there’s always something for everyone’s taste. A lot of the bags that I’ve listed come with gold hardware, but if you are looking for silver hardware, have a look at Jessica Buurman’s bags here. As always, I’ve gone for a nude colour scheme as my first option in bags – they are my favourite to wear and favourite to style.
Nude Hermes Kelly dupes are not the only options there are – plenty of handbags exist in exciting colour combinations, such as burgundy and orange. I’ve featured my favourite colours here, but you can find many more bags in blue, teal, green and purple if you click on the link.
Hermes Kelly Bag Dupes with Ostrich effect, $119, here // Crocodile embossed Hermed Kelly Bag Dupes, $119, here and here ($110, USA)
Finally we have crocodile embossed and ostrich design Hermes Kelly dupes. These bags tend to be much more expensive if you’re buying the original luxury item, and the price rise is noticeable even when it comes to dupes. As opposed to the real Kelly bags, the rise in price isn’t in the thousands, but a mere $20 more than the bag without the so called special effect. My favourite of these is probably number 3 – the ostrich material looks a lot less shiny than the crocodile embossed material, which is my personal preference. Nymber 8 looks gorgeous as well – a friend of mine has a black croc embossed Celine bag and it is beyond gorgeous. I would expect this one to be similar.
