"Thanks, it's Chanel." Want to be able to utter these words without spending two months of rent on one of the most covetable brands in the industry? I scoured Gilt, The Real Real, and Vestiaire to uncover the very best Chanel items you don't have to pay retail prices for. For instance, you have plenty of under-$250 options that range from the perfect miniskirt to the ideal party shoes. (Spring can't come quickly enough.)
I also found some drool-worthy items that are guaranteed to stand the test of time, including Chanel logo earrings and a quilted wallet. For more trend-oriented shoppers, a kind-hearted person has parted ways with her tweed sneakers to give you the chance to snag them at a fraction of the original over-$800 price. Plus, a pretty silk bra top is perfectly aligned with the lingerie-as-outerwear trend that celebrities love to wear on the red carpet. Scroll down to shop the 21 best Chanel items I could find.
