Espadrilles! These summer shoes have risen to fame in the last couple of seasons with Chanel and Valentino leading the pack of the fabulous espadrilles. We’ve already done a Real vs. Steal on Valentino’s highly popular lace espadrilles from a few seasons ago and now they’ve updated their shoe collection with a just as stylish crochet version. But as gorgeous as they are, do you actually see yourself spending $675 (!) on a pair of highly delicate espadrilles? Well, I can’t.

Rebecca Minkoff “Genny” Lace Espadrille Flats

Good thing is that I don’t have to spend nearly $700 when there are Valentino-inspired espadrilles like these by Rebecca Minkoff around. And while I admit these aren’t what I’d consider a steal at $67.99 (sale price!) they are still in fact $600 cheaper than the originals. Available in black, red coral, yellow and taupe.

Another great Valentino alternative are these crochet espadrilles by Tory Burch. They aren’t terribly cheaper than the Rebecca Minkoffs but in comparison to the pricey Valentinos they’re quite the good deal. Available in black and white.

Remember the mega craze for Tory Burch‘s highly-coveted “Reva” ballet flats a few years back? Well, the hype around these logo medallion-adorned classic flats may have died down a little since, but it’s still a very lovely and versatile shoe worth having in your wardrobe. And at $225 per pair these shoes are rather on the lower price spectrum of designer shoes we’ve featured here over the years.

Audrey Brooke “Kristin” Ballet Flats

If you can’t or don’t want to spend more than $200 on a pair of basic flats, here’s a great alternative by Audrey Brooke which will give you the luxurious look of Tory Burch for under $20. Also available in various other colors and uppers.

Aldo “Chaya” Ballet Flats

I also found these flats by Aldo which are also obviously inspired by Tory Burch’s Reva ballerina flats. At $70 they’re slightly more expensive than the Audrey Brooke version, but the Aldo flats are also made of real leather which the Audrey Brooke ones are not.

This sporty sailor style by Tory Burch is really starting to grow on me. At first sight, these espadrille wedges seem to be simple but on the contrary they are anything but mundane. The two-tone colors – navy and white – create a distinct color palette and are very versatile. I love how both Kristen Bell and Megan Fox paired them with blue denim, really drawing attention to the wedge. There are infinite wardrobe possibilities, and any look can be easily achieved. From polished ladylike wear to boho chic, I think we can all agree that these are magnificent. And though they may be sold out, we have several almost identical matches below!

MIA “Renegade” Wedge Sandals

MIA does a nice job mimicking the wedges above; seemingly with every detail in place. Priced at only $19.98 (sale price!), one can truly immerse in luxury without having to stray from the budget, and searching for a sold out shoe. If you are in search of an exact Tory Burch look-a-like, then these “Renegade” wedges may just be the ultimate find.

Tommy Hilfiger “Venice” Espadrille Wedges

Adding to the mix, are these Tommy Hilfiger “Venice” Espadrille Wedges. Though the two-tone concept is incorporated, the colors are out of order with emphasize on the white strip. Also, these wedges are available in blue with green for a more colorful and vibrant look. The sporty sailor style is still evident in both color versions, but I think that the blue with green has more of a casual appearance. Regardless of your preference, these are definitely up to par with the real deal and are quite affordable, too!

I’m not exactly sure what happened, but this summer I am beyond obsessed with wedge espadrilles. Must have bought about 4 pairs in the last couple weeks and still contemplate buying more. And these lovely crochet peep-toe wedge espadrilles from Tory Burch are at the top of my list. While they aren’t terribly expensive to begin with (retail price is $235), they are however very hard to come by as they’re almost sold out everywhere by now. Boohoo!

ALDO “Fierstein” Crochet Espadrille Wedge Pumps

Luckily, we have ALDO to help us out. Their “Fierstein” espadrille wedge pumps look very much like the Tory Burch wedges above, but cost half the sale price of the designer originals. Budgetistas rejoice, shoe shopping budget problem resolved!

My personal style includes a mixture of classic designer pieces and inexpensive trendy items. When I saw this striped blazer by Tory Burch (retail price: $325), I knew there was a designer space for it in my closet. The simple shape is given a new look with nautical stripes. I’m already running imaginary outfits through my head!

Spiegel Ponté-Knit Striped Blazer

If you want to add a little stripes into your wardrobe, but don’t want to drop a whole load of your hard earned money, then this Spiegel blazer is an excellent option. The shape and stripes get the job done. If you still have your mind set on gold nautical buttons, only a few dollars and a needle and thread will do the trick.
