Effortlessly stylish and endlessly chic, the Chanel Classic Wallet on Chain, or simply the WOC, also makes the list of the most affordable Chanel bags.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I am not a big fan of the Chanel 22 Bag (it’s just a little bit too slouchy for my liking). Its mini version, however, is an entirely different story, arriving in a much daintier silhouette without as much slouch.

Furthermore, in addition to a chain strap, the Chanel Mini 22 Bag also boasts a thin leather strap for crossbody wear, making it way more practical than the original 22 Bag. Currently available for $4,700 in stitched denim.

9. Chanel Deauville Tote ($4,700)

Like the look of the Classic Flap, but don’t want to spend $10,000+? Well, if that’s the case, then you might want to consider the Chanel Mini Flap instead.

Specifically, the Square Mini is currently priced at $5,000, whereas the Rectangular Mini can be yours for $5,200. And just so you know, many people say that due to the absence of the double flap, the Rectangular Mini can hold as much, if not more, than the Small Classic Flap (visit this blog post for more info)!
