After writing this blog for more than 9 years and scouring the internet for designer dupes even longer, I hardly raise an eyebrow anymore whenever I come across a budget brand or fast-fashion chain copying a high fashion designer. But when designers – with very similar price points – copy amongst each other? Baffling! Which is exactly how I felt when I recently stumbled upon a pair of frayed satin slides by Stuart Weitzman. I knew I had seen that same style somewhere before, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on where. So after a few days I have almost already forgotten about it when I accidentally saw the Gianvito Rossi‘s “Barth” Sandal which looks so much alike, they’re basically designer shoe twins. Both have the same design, the same details, the same fabric and the same color! The prices, however, are somewhat different, but still close enough together to be both considered luxury shoes with Rossi’s sandals costing $645 (now on sale for $258) and Weitzman’s version being priced at $375 (now on sale for $150). I can’t tell who is copying whom though since I don’t know who came out first with their shoe style. Anyway, both sandals are absolutely fabulous and right on trend with the soft pink tone and the silky satin upper, so you can either go with your personal preference or your bank account because style-wise it’s a close tie between these two.

They’re by A New Day, Target’s newly launched fashion line, are super affordable at $22.99 and look exactly like the pricey designer version! By the way, I know the label says “Mossimo Supply Co.”, so I guess Target hasn’t said goodbye to Mossimo just yet and probably only had the line rebranded for marketing purposes.

Writing up a post about these “Ceinture” buckled boots by Balenciaga is a tough one for me. Why? Well, mainly because I don’t find myself very attracted to this type of masculine biker boots. Nor am I tall or skinny enough to pull off such a bulky boot. However, since these boots have been making the rounds on a number of style blogs and celebs lately, here you go with a couple of budget-friendly alternatives.

If you happen to spend some time on Instagram occasionally and follow one or two major fashion accounts, chances are you’re probably already familiar with “Les Bonbons” by Rebecca de Ravenel. These ball drop clip-on statement earrings which are made of lightweight silk, are handmade in India and come in a variety of lengths, materials and colors, have been designed by up-and-coming jewelry designer Rebecca de Ravenel who grew up between the Bahamas and Paris; an influence that is reflected in her aesthetic (check out her fabulous Instagram account) and her colorful designs which are both bold and playful. What Rebecca de Ravenel’s designs are NOT however: cheap! Depending on the design, you’d have to shell out between $295 and $345 for a pair of “Les Bonbons” to call yours! A price not every fashionista would be willing to pay for such a trendy accessory that might be out of fashion by next summer.

Every few couple years or so, a new designer ankle boot emerges to take over the fashion world by storm. It then quickly becomes an iconic must-have staple in the seemingly endless shoe closets of every fashion-conscious stylist, celebrity, influencer and editor. Right now I feel like it’s Givenchy turn for some serious shoe fame. Their “Prue” ankle boot is a classic, flat biker boot with 4 buckled straps and micro-stud details which you’ve probably seen dozens of times on the feet of your favorite Insta-people by now. It’s a shoe versatile enough to work with a lot of different fashion styles, but still detailed enough to stand out on its own to spice up an otherwise basic or bland outfit. Unfortunately, this much fabulousness comes at a very hefty price: $1.395! Let’s not kid ourselves: that’s a lot of money which probably would be more wisely spent on other, more useful things. You know, boring grown-up stuff like rent, mortgage, food and health insurance. Luckily, we’ve found various just as stylish, affordable Givenchy Prue alternatives that will leave enough money in your pockets to pay the bills.

EGO Ximena Studded Detail Biker Boots

A rather spot-on but inexpensive Givenchy Prue look-alike are these faux leather booties by EGO which retail for affordable £34.99. But let me mention the best part: students get a 25% discount, that’s a saving of almost £9 on these booties! Steal deal alert! A similar shoe style available is the “Halo” which has a more traditional biker boot design.

A similar boot is also available at Linzi Shoes.

Office Academic Leather Stud Buckle Boots

Another one of my Givenchy dupe favorites are these lovely Office ankle boots I spotted at ASOS recently. Again, heavily inspired by the pricey designer original, but not an identical 1:1 copy. If you’re not a fan of excessive studding, a similar version sans studs on the buckle straps is the “Amsterdam” boot (£90), also by Office.

Sacha Studded Buckle Booties

There are currently so many stylish Givenchy inspired booties out there, it’s crazy! These ankle boots by Sacha here are also one of my personal faves. Similar but not identical.

Stradivarius Leather Ankle Boots with Studs

Another similar Givenchy studded boot option is this buckled ankle bootie by Stradivarius which I have personally purchased because I liked the look and the price for this genuine leather dupe. Definitely a recommendation!

Bestowal Studded Multi Buckle Ankle Boots

Looking for a spot-on Givenchy look-alike made of genuine leather? Then have a look at this studded boot by Bestowal I came across at Choies. The design is almost identical and the price of $115.99 seems somewhat reasonable.

Romwe Studded Buckle Ankle Booties

And lastly, check out these Givenchy inspired booties I found at Romwe which cost less than $50 and hence are yet another very budget-friendly dupe alternative.

I think we can all agree that a black leather jacket is an absolute wardrobe staple and should be owned by every man and woman. I also think we can all agree on the fact that Acne Studios happens to make some of the best leather jackets everrrrrrr! (Velocite aviator jacket, anyone?) – Unfortunately, Acne leather jackets (also leather jackets in general) come at a price; in this particular case at $1.550 which is obviously a lot of money, even for a really cool leather jacket. But fret not, my dear fashionistas on a budget! Just keep on scrolling to discover how to get the uber-cool Acne moto look for a whole lot less.

MANGO Carla2 Zipped Biker Jacket

While browsing through MANGO’s new arrivals recently, I happened to stumble upon this Acne Mock inspired moto leather jacket which retails for under $100 and comes in either black or white.
