9 Trendy Designer Dupes You Can Buy Right Now

What if we told you that some of the items you have your eye on have almost identical dupes that are much cheaper?

Well, it’s that time of year again…the leaves are changing colour, the pumpkin spice lattes are out in full force, and you get the excuse to go shopping to update your fall wardrobe (not that we ever need an excuse to shop). However, what if we told you that some of the items you have your eye on have almost identical dupes that are much cheaper? Read on to find out 9 of the best designer dupes you can buy right now.

1. CRYSTAL DROP EARRINGS

If we didn’t tell you which of the crystal drop earrings above were designer and which were the dupe, would you be able to guess correctly? Because we’d sure be stumped.

2. PINK TEDDY COAT

Teddy coats are a trend that’s back big time this year, and there’s just something fun about wearing one in bubblegum pink. And spending $99.90 instead of $4,404.

3. PLAID TRENCH COAT

There’s no better investment than a good trench coat for fall, and we love this plaid version by Alice + Olivia. However, seeing as there’s a $119.95 dupe out there why not go the more fiscally responsible (but equally stylish) route?

4. METALLIC HEEL BOOTIE

Black ankle bootie? Check. Metallic heel? Check. Pointy toe? Check. The only thing we can’t check off our list for the Zara bootie on the right is the high price tag – and we ain’t complaining about that.

5. PEARL DETAIL SWEATER

There’s something about pearls that instantly add an element of class to any outfit. And while we love this pearl detail sweater by Givenchy, we know we’d feel just as classy in the $39.90 Zara dupe.

6. FLORAL PRINT DRESS

Who says you have to give up wearing pretty florals once the temperature drops? This billowy floral dress by Giambattista Valli is perfect for any cold-weather fancy event. But not as perfect as the $210 version from Artizia.

7. LIZARD LEATHER SATCHEL

A structured leather satchel is a type of bag that will never go out of style, and the “Lucia” bag by Dolce & Gabbana is no exception. However seeing as the $220.24 dupe looks almost identical to the $2,179 real deal, we’ll be going with the former.

Shop the Dupe: La’Festin Lizard Leather Shoulder Bag, $220.24, at Amazon

8. VELVET SHOULDER BAG

Shaped like an antique notebook, the Prada “Cahier” bag is a true handbag masterpiece and we’re obsessed with the burgundy velvet version for fall/winter. However the only thing we can’t get past is the price – which is why the $109 Amazon dupe has our names written all over it.

9. SNAKE CLOSURE BAG

For over $2,000, the Bvlgari Serpenti bag screams “pure luxury”. And for $154.71, the Amazon dupe screams “get in my closet right now.”

Shop the Dupe: FairyBridal Leather Crossbody, $154.71, at Amazon
