Longchamp Large Le Pliage Tote
At Travel Fashion Girl, we are big fans of Longchamp bags, from their totes to the Le Pliage backpack — and TFG readers love them, too!
The Longchamp Le Pliage tote is a classic style that is both roomy and water-resistant. It’s offered in a range of colors, each trimmed with embossed leather for classic contrast.

While we are definitely not fans of knockoffs, we always are happy to find alternatives to popular styles that won’t break the bank.
With that in mind, we decided to reach out to readers to find out their favorite tote bags that are affordable alternatives to the Longchamp tote. Here is our list of the best bag similar to Longchamp Le Pliage Tote!

Longchamp Lookalike Bag with Pockets: Lug Tote
Some TFG readers have mentioned that they wished the Longchamp tote had interior pockets. A traveler who likes to focus on bag organization will need a tote with multiple pockets.
The Lug Ace Tote is similar to the large Le Pliage tote, but it has plenty of pocket space. One reader says, “I have a few of these Lug totes, and they’re great! Lots of pockets and some even have built-in mirrors.”
The Ace tote features loads of pockets to keep you organized, including an insulated pocket for storing snacks or lunch items. The north-south design keeps the tote streamlined to your body whether you wear it as a traditional tote or crossbody with the provided removable strap.

This Lug tote is perfect for your travels with safety, security, and ample organization! It’s a little more expensive than others on this list at around $65, but still less than the Le Pliage.

LL Bean Everyday Lightweight Tote
Everyday Bag Similar to Longchamp: LL Bean Tote
TFG readers love that the Longchamp Le Pliage tote is versatile and lightweight, perfect for everyday use. But it’s not the only travel-worthy tote that fits that bill.
L.L. Bean makes a versatile lightweight tote bag that is a must-have for hauling gear to the beach, carrying groceries to your Airbnb from the market, or keeping handy while shopping the seaside market.
The L.L. Bean Everyday Lightweight Tote are bags similar to Longchamp totes in that they can double as a beach bag, fit with any outfit or occasion, and look adorable! The top zipper helps ensure none of your belongings fall out, which is handy when you’re running from flights to train stations to hotels.
One TFG reader says, “I have used this medium tote the last couple times I’ve traveled as my personal item. It folds up pretty small and is quite roomy as a spare bag.”
Another reader has this in the large size and says, “I don’t find it too large, because the nylon makes it look very lightweight and flat if not full. I can fit my daily stuff, including umbrella, and have it look ‘normal,’ plus stuff it with an array of random things if needed. I love it.”
For a versatile, cheaper alternative (around $25) to the Longchamps bag Amazon has to offer, this L.L. Bean tote is perfect for you!

Brics nylon fold up tote. Maybe it’s called the x-bag tote.
Hi Hollie, thank you for sharing your recommendation for an alternative to the Longchamp with us! ?
I was also looking for a lightweight roomy bag and bought a small 3-in-1 x-travel bag in brown from brics for 47 euros, the design is more comfortable and quality of the leather trims is excellent. They had nice mid-summer sale too. I am actually rather disappointed in my le pliage knock-off, it,s not comfortable to use, i hate the flap and lack of pockets.
Hi Liis, thank you for sharing your recommendation for a purse, sounds fantastic!! Always love hearing about our reader’s favorite products! 🙂
LLBean bags you feature are great. I have several. They are strong and roomy while folding flat to nothing. They wash well which I do in the gentle cycle with an extra rinse. Come in great colors too!
Hi Clariza, thank you so much for your feedback, glad you found the article helpful, and for sharing your review of the LLBean bag! 🙂
I was given a knockoff of the Longchamps tote and like it except for the lack of internal pockets. After reading a post on Pinterest, got a table runner and cut it to fit around the internal space, sewed the ends together and turned up enough to fit various bits and pieces and sewed pockets for: kindle, sunglasses, small make up bag, camera, water bottle. Works very well and I made another one for the friend who gave me the bag – makes all the difference to using it for an organised day out, or in my case, my carry on bag.
Hi Jennifer, thank you for sharing your experiences with the Longchamps tote and your great tips for adapting it to suit you!! 🙂
Sounds like the start of a business!!
