It is uncanny
Remember the £25 Chloé bag copy we told you about last summer? The one that had been instagrammed 44,000 times (literally) and cost almost £1000 less than the original? Well, we’ve got another one. An even better one.
Last time it was the Chloé Faye- the larger tote style- but this time it’s all about the Chloé Pixie- the small, round style with the gold handle. Anyone with an Instagram account will know the one we mean, but in case not, here it is:
At £1020, it’s not the cheapest of bags; we mean, it’s more than our rent. That’s why, when we came across River Island’s round leather crossbody bag, we had to do a double take- first because we honestly thought it was the Chloé Pixie, and second because of the price tag next to it: £60. That’s £960 cheaper than the real deal, if you’re wondering.
There are a few reasons this is so exciting: 1) the black shade and simple shape goes with literally everything in our wardrobe, 2) it can be worn as both a grab and crossbody bag, and 3) everyone worth their street style salt has one. Here’s how to wear it:
How to wear on date night
Wear as a grab bag and team with LBD, check coat and red ankle sock boots. Add a slick of red lippy and you’re good to go.
How to wear on the weekend
Use the strap as a crossbody and style with chunky knit, pleated skirt and oversized cosy coat. Sunnies optional.
How to wear like a #ChloéGirl
Channel all the trends and try check trews, oversized trucker jacket and mirrored aviators, or go for a leather mini skirt and Mary-Janes.
The possibilities really are endless. Very, we salute you.
