Buying designer is a luxury that may not always be worth the price tag. Investing in high-quality, classic pieces is a long-term and sustainable way to shop, but it might hurt your wallet and take up closest space for perishable trends. Blowing a thousand dollars on a designer garment might seem totally worth it for the first few wears but the fleeting lifespan of trends mean it won’t be worth it if you think about cost-per-wear. The concept of fashion trends usually have a negative connotation, partially because of its short lifespan. As your clothing is a visual extension of who you are, it may be constantly changing with your mood. If you’re looking for that designer look but don’t want to shell out the cash, head to one of these stores for a designer dupe that will cost you way less!
As fashion is meant to be experimental, you can still rock new fashion fads without breaking the bank with these designer dupes all available for much less!
Fast-fashion retailers like Zara churn out designer dupes without compromising (too much!) on quality. Keep up with the trends as soon as they get off the runway with affordable spins on ready-to-wear. This blazer is akin to Jonathan Simkhai’s, as seen on celebrity Monica Rose.
Amazon is also a great place to find affordable on-trend accessories with super-fast delivery. Get this budget-friendly bucket hat instead of spending 5x the price on the Lack of Color version.
Topshop is another fab go-to for tailored pieces, especially for those who require specific tall or petite fits. A stylish suit that can be dressed up for work or a night out is a great option. Grab one in a bright colour or funky pattern without buyers remorse. This blazers pocket detailing is a more subtle version of Tibi’s signature reconstructed tailoring.
Mango’s refined modernity means it carries styles akin to The Row, Chloe, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Manolo Blahnik, and so many more. Mango is known for its ability to fuse the latest trends with classic style while still maintaining high quality so you get more than what you pay for.
Adopting the French girl lifestyle has been a cultural movement in North America over the past decade, and luckily, it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. This H&M dupe has the same “je ne sais quoi” for about 90% less as this Realisation Par dress. The red and black colour combo is more than a neutral, but is still totally wearable for most occasions. It’s fierce without trying to be, like every Francophile bombshell. Add a wing liner for a Bardot inspired look.
Reformation Dress $248 USD – Dainty dresses are a year-round staple, just add tights or a leather jacket in the cooler months. Reformation is known for their light, girl dresses in an array of colours and patterns. You can spot a #refgirl just by her billowed sleeves and bustier waist-line. ASOS currently has the same silhouette for $18! You’ll be getting more out of your cost-per-wear with this delicate dupe.
Celebrity-adored J Brand jeans collaborated with Steph Sheppard to create these ultra-luxe, ultra-sexy dark wash denim with lace-up detailing. If you missed the drop, or don’t want to shell over $300 for a pair of jeans, these Missguided dupes are just as hot. Wear them with your favourite tee or with a blazer for a more work-appropriate look.
You’ve definitely seen these Jennifer Fisher mini Samira hoops before, particularly on style queen Hailey Bieber. These substantial hoops go with EVERYTHING and elevate any look to something street-style inspired. Add these Urban Outfitters dupes to your accessory collection to save on some serious cash while boosting your hoop game. Style with a hoodie and sweats or off-the-shoulder sundress.
