Summer is in full swing and breezy summer dresses are the way to dress in this heat. And just how breezy is this lovely, delicate little white dress by Chloé? Sure, you’d have to tape it to your breasts if you want to avoid “wardrobe malfunctions”, but once everything is safely kept in its place, I think this dress would look fantastic on vacations, beach days and summer garden parties. Just look at how gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looks wearing this beautiful dress (OK, Rosie would look good in anything, but still). Too bad it costs almost $2.800 which makes it absolutely unattainable for most of us fashion lovers!

Le Salty Label x REVOLVE Mini Dress

Luckily, there’s a fantastic look for less alternative available by Le Salty Label for a much lower price of $128. Their LWD (which is also available in black) is shorter and has slightly less intricate detailing than the Chloé original, but the resemblance between both dresses is still very visible. And just in case you’re not a fan of the short length, this dress also comes in a lovely maxi dress version. Make sure to check out Le Salty Label’s whole collection, because it’s absolutely fabulous and just perfect for summer!

Summer has officially started, so let’s talk summer dresses for a moment. Thanks to Self-Portrait, delicate guipure lace dresses have officially taken over this season’s must-have dress trends. And while the Azaelea dress by Self-Portrait is by far the most popular style from the brand, there are so many more beautiful dresses worth taking a look at. Take this lilac mini dress for example, it’s the perfect combination of feminine and sexy. Plus, how gorgeous is the pastel lavender color? Such a sweet summer dress. Unfortunately, it’s also very expensive. And sold out. Bummer!

Aqua Lace Illusion Mini Dress

Luckily, we’ve come across this just as lovely lace mini dress by Aqua which serves as a great look for less Self-Portrait alternative. The design is spot-on, but the Aqua dress costs about 1/4 of the real deal. Available in black or lilac blue.

Self-Portrait. How could we have possibly missed out on covering this new and super coveted brand for so long? Sorry about that, folks. But before we head into showing you our best Self-Portrait steal finds, here are a few facts about the contemporary fashion label: it was founded in 2013 by Han Chong (also former creative director of Three Floor) and quickly gained red carpet and social media buzz shortly after, landing dress gigs with celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon and Miranda Kerr as well as personal style bloggers like Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) and Kristina Bazan (Kayture). The signature aesthetic of the London-based brand are feminine, romantic dresses and separates with lots of lace, embroidery and sheer overlays which have a surprisingly appealing price point: Dresses typically fall in the $500-$600 price range. And while I honestly applaud Han Chong for wanting to create a mid-priced fashion label with lots of attention to detail, $480 is still a lot of money for a lot of people (even though I’ll admit the “Azaelea” dress pictured below looks like it’s worth every penny of it). Keep on reading to find various stylish Self-Portrait dress alternatives for much less.

Update (05/08/2016): Spotted another great Self-Portrait Azaelea look-alike today! It’s by Club Monaco, comes in either black or forest green and costs approx. half as much as the real deal ($219). Love the green version for redheads! What do you think?

Update (04/28/2016): Just spotted this Self-Portrait inspired summer dress at bebe. It has obviously some major differences (e.g. different pattern and length), but the bodice clearly gives away where the inspiration for this dress came from.

LuLu*s Pinnacle of Prestige Lace Midi Dress

If you can’t afford spending half a grand on a flirty summer dress, here’s our best steal find (yet!) which I discovered at LuLu*s some time ago. And I would’ve showed you this lovely $64 lace midi dress some time ago already, but it kept selling out so fast – restock after restock – that I didn’t even have enough time to finish up this blog post before this dress was completely sold out again, so I patiently waited until it got restocked for what feels like the tenth time now and for the first time it didn’t sell out in the first 60 minutes. Yay! However, this dress is obviously still wildly popular, so I wouldn’t wait too long with buying. Who knows if it’ll be restocked for an eleventh time?

H&M Lace Dress

Another gorgeous Self-Portrait Azaelea alternative is this lace midi dress by H&M. It’s currently only available in yellow (also comes in white now), but it does look lovely and so similar to the real deal, right? I know $129 seems oddly expensive for an H&M dress, but be rest assured, I actually ordered this dress myself and it is worth its money, the fit is flattering and the quality is good. So if you’re a fan of yellow summer dresses, this one is a great buy!

Deal: Free worldwide shipping on all orders! Sign up to the Jessica Buurman newsletter and get a 10% off coupon!

And of course, where there’s a trend Jessica Buurman can’t be too far away. The design of their “Adice” dress is very close to the real deal (including the colors), but I can’t tell for sure whether it’s worth paying over $100 for, especially since I found various other dresses from similar Asian merchants for much less (see links below).

Free People South Of The Equator Midi Dress

OK, now this Self-Portrait steal find kind of irritates me. Don’t get me wrong: I love Free People and I looooove designer dupes. But what I don’t understand is how you can blatantly copy a $480 dress and then sell your own copied version for a whopping $300, thus making both dresses compete in the same price range? Now that’s a little shameless, isn’t it? Even for blatant copycats. Anyway, I still wanted to include this dress option because it does look a lot like the real deal and it is in fact still $180 cheaper than the original, so if you’re OK with paying that much money for a copycat design, feel free to do so.

There has been a downright flood of sexy tops in the blogosphere lately and while I admittedly love the concept of super deep v-neck lace-up shirts or really tiny lace-trimmed bustiers, I don’t see many of those tops working out in the real world. Especially not during daytime. This crochet lace crop top by Asilio however has what I call sophisticated sexiness and it’s a perfect example for the symbiosis of style and sexiness. The “White Walls” top is sexy without being flashy and it shows and hides skin in just the right amount . I’m also absolutely in love with the intricate crochet pattern. So pretty, right? Too bad this beauty of a top costs $165 (now $116)!

The pattern of the F21 version is offset by a few inches as you can see, but that really doesn’t take away from the beauty of this lovely top. And did I mention it costs only $29.90 instead of $165? Steal deal alert! But you better hurry, I’m sure these Asilio dupes will be sold out in no time!
