Your Instagram feed probably gave this away, but Coachella 2024 kicked off over the weekend, and among the hundreds of thousands of people in attendance for one of the biggest musical festivals of the year was one of my favorite couples: Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce. I'm not here to talk about their swoon-worthy backstage PDA, though—I'm here to tell you all about the singer's standout Stella McCartney logo strap bag (and show you some similar styles at way more wallet-friendly price points).

Swift's vegetarian leather masterpiece, featuring the designer brand's perforated medallion logo and sporty, adjustable fabric strap, is available for a whopping $1,025. Needless to say, it's the kind of bag you'll have forever, and it's roomy enough to fit all your necessities (phones, keys, hand lotion, etc.) despite its small size, per the brand. Plus, it's got a zip pocket on the inside, so you can effortlessly secure your valuables, whether you're in the middle of a packed crowd or dodging paparazzi like an A-lister. So it's really no wonder Swift chose to rock it among the masses in the desert this weekend.

If you're also a fan of the bag but not willing to spend half your rent on it, I have some good news. I searched the internet high and low to find three similar, equally festival-worthy options that you can score for just a fraction of the price. From a leather Kate Spade messenger crossbody ($258) to a leather Coach hobo bag ($350), these trendy logo strap bags will not disappoint if you're hoping to channel Swift's Coachella style this summer. Scroll on to get her look for less—football star arm candy unfortunately not included.

This Kate Spade leather messenger is selling fast, and it's not just because it has an attachable, adjustable crossbody strap that is just as cool as the one on Taylor's bag. This baby also has more pockets than you think (four to be exact), making it almost impossible *not* to stay organized. Plus, it's made of luxe pebbled leather and features a zip-top closure, so you can look chic and feel secure knowing your items won't fly out.

This Coach hobo bag is made of scratch-resistant crossgrain leather and the brand's signature coated canvas for prime durability. There's space enough for your phone, wallet and other festival essentials, and it has a multifunction pocket and one credit card slot inside, so you can keep things separate as you please. Its interchangeable webbing strap (which features the brand's name in bold print à la Swift's Stella McCartney number) transforms it from a shoulder bag to a crossbody, and, in my opinion, just adds to its Taylor-approved style factor.

Shoppers love everything about this sporty messenger purse, from its high-quality pebbled leather to its perfect size, suitable for all the on-the-go outings you have planned this season. But here's why one buyer doesn't regret buying it: "This bag is the ultimate bag. The straps are wide enough for large or broad shoulders. It can carry a mini iPad, [and] a lot of other stuff. The leather is smooth and sturdy." Another reviewer also adds that it's not too heavy, so it's perfect for everyday use. Simply put, it's worth every penny, especially if you want to embrace Swift's style without breaking the bank.
