I’ve been wanting to show you guys my new summer bag for a while now, and here she is in all her glory – meet the Chanel Iridescent Yellow Classic Flap Bag in Lambskin leather.
Let’s dive into the details.
So, when I purchased my black Chanel classic flap bag last Christmas of 2020 – which I instantly fell in love with, I thought to myself: “that’s it. I need another one.”
With that, my wishlist for my next Chanel classic flap bag started growing. The #2 bag on my wishlist was the Chanel yellow iridescent classic flap bag. The selling point of this bag to me was the idiosyncratic lemon yellow colour that I just knew would instantly elevate any outfit. Also, this colour is perfect for both spring and summer.

How Much Is The Chanel Iridescent Yellow Classic Bag?
I was lucky enough to find this bag on a preloved website, where this bag it retailed for £3,540 pounds, which is $4,900 dollars. This bag is from the 21P collection, which basically stands for Chanel Spring Summer 2021 Pre-collection. It is in the size 26cm, measured from the bottom. I opted for a medium size as it is perfect for me and fits all my essentials, like my wallet, my phone, 1 or 2 lipsticks, my keys, and maybe a cheeky snack, like cookies… or some gum, for those saucy date nights. It’s got the most gorgeous yellow interior!
Here is my Youtube video where I recorded what fits in my bag. I purchased my bag from Fashionpile and it took 1-2 business days to arrive. This bag is 1000% percent everything I wanted. I can’t wait to show you how I style it!
Here, I have picked out some Yellow Chanel bags that are quite identical to my Chanel iridescent yellow classic bag from trustworthy, pre-loved websites. Yellow Chanel bags are a must have in every girl’s closet and I can personally attest to that!
On your mark, set, shop!

Here is the Chanel Classic Flap mini in lambskin leather. This bag is an absolute classic and the small size is perfect, as you can wear it casually during the day with a dress, with jeans and trainers. It’s also perfect for evening, just throw on a jacket and pair it with shorts or a skirt. This bag adds the ultimate pop of colour to your outfit, as it has a beautiful neutral yellow. Pair it with black, brown, white, or even a pink outfit.
See street style images below on how to style it.
The caviar option is also a good choice. Truth be told, I actually prefer caviar leather to lambskin because of its durability. However, because I already own a caviar Chanel bag, I decided to go with something different. The styling opportunities are endless on this one!

This bag adds the ultimate pop of colour to your outfit, as it has a beautiful neutral yellow. Pair it with little black dress on a night out, or opt for something colourful, like a green blazer dress.
Here is another unmissable caviar option. This colour is vibrant and you’re sure to be the life of the party if you step in with this bag! Throw on a brown/nude/tan blazer with a slip dress and some heels for a night out. Additionally, these can be styled during the day with some trousers or shorts, paired with white mules or flats.
And for the gals who love bigger bags, I got you. This maxi classic flap option is also a stunning must-have! It’s bigger in size which means you can fit a lot more in, plus, it’s the perfect travel companion. Ps, these would look awesome styled with black skinny jeans, or a yellow dress!
Although, not a classic bag, this Chanel lambskin boy bag in iridescent yellow is equally as gorgeous. The gold hardware and lemon yellow blend on this bag makes it an exquisite but statement standout piece. Might I add, this is another bag on my ever growing Chanel wishlist. Albeit, it might look like a tricky bag to style, but I assure you this beauty already does 60% of the work for you. Style this bag with a with a red or white dress, denim skirt or shorts. Be sure to accessorise with gold jewellery as it compliments this bag effortlessly.
Although a much older version of the Chanel classic bag, a Chanel bag is timeless and still holds its value. I have found a pre-loved, one could say… “affordable” vintage yellow Chanel bag. It’s got the prettiest metallic detail on it which I thought was super cute!
Some more style inspiration, because you deserve the best! 😉
