  1. CROSSOVER SLIDE SANDALS

These crossover slide sandals are a prime example of a dupe done right. We can barely tell the difference between the Zara ones and the original ones by Saint Laurent, unlike our wallets who will be able to tell a huge difference.

  1. BEJEWELLED SLIDE SANDALS

Chanel can be a tricky brand to dupe. Their products look (and are) insanely expensive, so when they’re duped using cheaper materials, you can usually tell they’re not really by the French brand. However, Zara’s version of their bejewelled slide sandals are très chic.

  1. VINYL STRAP SANDALS

Call us crazy, but doesn’t this marble box clutch from Zara look just as expensive as the Edie Parker one?

  1. RING BELT BAG

Belt bags are all the rage right now; however whether they’ll still be in style in a few years is anyones guess. Which is why we’d much rather shell out only $39.90 to hop onboard the trend than a whopping $742.

  1. FLORAL CROPPED PANTS

Leave it to Zara to create a dupe of $1,275 Dolce & Gabbana pants for only $49.90. Tbh, we like the Zara pair better!

  1. STRIPED CARDIGAN

While we love ourselves some Gucci, spending $2,980 on a cardigan is a bit outrageous if you ask us. The $69.90 dupe from Zara, on the other hand, is a no-brainer.
