If you've been keeping up with the latest trends then you know that the pillow clutch is quickly attaining a cult following, thanks in part to the pervasive popularity of Bottega Veneta's luxe Pouch bag. By now, it's nearly impossible to scroll through Instagram without coming across the plush handbag silhouette. If you still aren't quite ready to invest in the viral design that started it all, you'll want a curated list of bags like Bottega Veneta's Pouch that are an affordable way to embrace spring's biggest handbag trend.

Across the board, Milan-based Bottega Veneta has become a must-own brand since the appointment of creative director Daniel Lee in 2019. With celebrities, editors, and influencers alike shopping the label's accessories — and handbags in particular — it makes sense that you, too, would want to find a way to add the label's iconic silhouettes into your rotation. But if you're looking for options at different price points, there are a slew of options on the market with the same undeniable appeal.

Insider-approved brands like Mansur Gavriel, Khaite, and A.W.A.K.E Mode are serving up their own interpretations of the pillow clutch trend in a similar design with unique tweaks (like twisted silhouettes and alternative materials). Now is also a good time to familiarize yourself with brands you might not yet have on your radar like, JW Pei and Nunoo who are putting their own twists on the trend in colors, prints, and textures you might not have considered otherwise. These iterations are easy to style for either day or night, and will surely hit no matter your signature style.

Whether you're searching for something similar to Bottega Veneta's signature, or simply a bag that's only loosely inspired by the style, continue on to shop these 10 TZR favorites, just ahead.

Cloud Clutch

Mansur Gavriel's take on the trend is a well-sized design that's a dead ringer for BV's coveted pouch. Fans of the brands candy color-ways and supple leathers will find this style is the perfect alternative.

Saki Clutch

Danish brand, Nunoo's take on the spring 2020 trend is equal parts sustainable and chic. The Saki clutch is priced just under $100 and comes with a detachable chain shoulder strap for ample functionality. It can be styled just as easily with a slip dress as it can jeans and graphic tee.

Gabi Crossbody Bag

The Volon's 'Gabi' bag is a hybrid between Bottega's viral pouch and Louis Vuitton's pouchette crossbody. Its plush pillow shape is accented with small zipped compartments that add to its versatility.

Puffy Crossbody Bag

Instantly recognized by the Maison Margiela designer plaque, the puffy crossbody can be both dressed up and down — it's also majorly marked down right now at Shopbop, which is reason enough to add it to cart.

Tally Clutch

Embracing two trends in one, this Vince Camuto clutch is an affordable option that your closet could benefit from. The oatmeal-colored snake motif doubles as a neutral, so don't be afraid to treat it as such.

Small Lucy Bag
