Although Laverne Cox is known for her role on Orange is the New Black, she proved Wednesday night that yellow is the new black bag.
Cosmopolitan reports that on July 15, Cox attended a screening of Irrational Man at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. She showed up in style, of course, with The Daily Mail reporting that Cox wore a navy dress by Opening Ceremony which she paired with black patent Louboutin booties and a bright yellow tote by Kenzo.
Although we adore Cox’s entire outfit, her sunny tote is the object of our envy. The cheerful Kenzo Kalifornia Tote, made of luxurious calfskin leather, comes at a not-so-cheerful price however: the pink version of the tote is currently on sale on ShopBop for $794.50, but originally retailed for $1,135. Because we won’t be paying anywhere near $794.50 to copy Cox’s look, we decided to find a couple of options to mimic her chic yellow tote for less.
To copy the shape of Cox’s Kenzo tote, we chose the Rebecca Minkoff Mab Tote Mini from Zappos.com. Available in a strikingly similar electric yellow, this tote is the perfect option to imitate not only the structured look of Cox’s tote but also its eye-catching color. What makes this tote even better is its lower price tag of $195!
To incorporate the zipper details on Cox’s tote, we chose the Milly Astor Pebbled Dome Satchel Bag in Limeade. Although this bag comes in a dome satchel style that is different from Cox’s box-style tote, it still offers the same bold yellow featuring zipper hardware across the front. This tote will make your wardrobe and your wallet happy, coming it at only $147 at Neiman Marcus LastCall.
So there you have it — two great options to take Laverne Cox’s bold yellow tote style for less. With two gorgeous, high-quality bags priced under $200, one of them is sure to find its way into your wardrobe!
