Off the Rack: Chan Luu Bracelet Look-a-likes at Target

Chan Luu knockoff looks for less at Target

I went to Target today in hopes of finding some Temple St. Clair jewelry—which they didn't have—but I did find some cool Chan Luu inspired bead bracelets (actually there are many designers making these stackable, leather wrap bead bracelets but Chan Luu is probably the most well-known of the bunch at the moment, having recently collaborated with Banana Republic on a limited-edition line). I found an assortment of colors and styles, each for $7.99. My favorite was a dark purple silk-look chord with gold-tone beads. Best part is that the closure features an easy-to-adjust slip knot so you can customize the fit to suit your wrist. Brilliant! Browse Chan Luu bracelets below for reference.

Heres an in-depth tutorial I did on how to make a Chan Luu replica - it looks nearly identical. I think you'll like it

Have a lovely day
