An original Rick Owens classic leather jacket is one of the few designer items I would gladly splurge on if I had 2,5k to spare. I especially love this sleek biker jacket below with its elegantly draped collar and ribbed wool sleeves; the shape is timeless and flattering and the leather looks incredibly soft, doesn’t it? A cool and edgy leather jacket like this one is a closet staple and should be hanging in every woman’s wardrobe.

Mango Maxi Flap Leather Jacket

Update (01/31/2014): So how fab is this leather jacket by Mango? It’s such a close dupe to the Rick Owens version and is also surprisingly affordable at $289.99 (we’re talking real leather here!). Really thinking about getting this beauty of a leather jacket myself.

Muubaa “Agena” Leather Jacket

Update (06/20/2013): Just discovered that these leather jackets by Muubaa would be great buys if you’re looking for a more affordable Rick Owens alternative. They’re not exactly a steal at £279-£349, but from what I have read about the brand worth the mini investment. And oooh, did I mention they offer free worldwide shipping?

Jennifer Lopez Faux-Leather Motorcycle Jacket

This faux leather jacket by Jennifer Lopez surely can’t compete with an original Rick Owens jacket, but if you’re looking for a good-looking and affordable leather jacket, this one has obviously quite a few Rick Owens inspired elements and the price of $50.40 ain’t too bad as well! Also available in white and plus sizes.

We’ve featured quite a number of Christian Louboutin shoes here on InTheirCloset and I think that’s because, other than being extremely popular with our readers, they are also what I would classify as “classic”. Louboutin pumps range from demure to over the top but almost all of them feel timeless. CL’s “Claudia” ankle-strap sandals are no exception. They are simply a new take on a tried and true shoe. Look how beloved these are by hollywood starlets and Playboy bunnies alike. You’d probably have to be either or both to swing that price tag though.

Ivanka Trump “Bulbli” Ankle Strap Sandals

Update (12/14/2010): Well, well. Seems like Ivanka Trump can add shoe designer to her resume now?! Or maybe not because her “Bulbli” sandals look like spot-on clones of Louboutin’s Claudias though I must admit they have the much nicer price tag. Available in black, red or graphite patent.

Aldo “Brodigan” Ankle Strap Sandals

Thank you, Aldo, for bringing us a shoe both lovely and affordable. No, my friends, you will not be able to show off that red sole, but if it’s class you’re looking for, look no further. Aldo’s “Brodigan” pump is the versatile, cocktail pump you’ve been looking for minus the hefty price tag. *Ding Ding*. We have a winner! Also available in a great nude color.

Real vs. Steal – Chanel Spring 2010 Clogs

by Celine on December 13, 2015

Update: This post has been updated on December 13, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Some shoes take time to grow on me; others I want immediately. The studded clogs from Chanel‘s S/S 2010 runway fell into the latter category. I don’t know if it’s the 60s-70s clothes kick I’ve been on recently or maybe just the fact that I love how nude shoes of all kinds elongate the leg (that 4 inch heel helps, too), but I prayed to the fashion gods above that someone would come out with a knock-off (the Chanel shoes being out of my budget and all). Usually, my prayers of that kind get answered – by the Steve Maddens and Jeffrey Campbells of the world – and I was not disappointed…

Jeffrey Campbell “Charlie” Clogs

I just received these Jeffrey Campbell “Charlie” clogs (I ordered them immediately after seeing them) and I have to tell you – they’re just as fabulous as I imagine Chanel’s to be. That scary 4 inch + heel is surprisingly comfortable to walk in and I just love their retro spirit. From the chunky wooden heel to the gold studs, these are truly an excellent knock-off. And for $178 (see retailers listed below for more prices), they’re really a steal. The clogs are available in either beige, black or tan.

Seeing something as functional as a zipper being used for decorative purposes always makes me wonder what the inventor would say about this trend? Studding and zipping everything has become so omnipresent that I easily forget those elements were originally not intended to be used as decoration. Luckily those times are long gone because otherwise we wouldn’t be able to lust after these gorgeous zip sandals by Christian Louboutin. And wouldn’t this be a pity?

What a shame that these Christian Louboutin heels went mostly unnoticed by the fashion world and have only been worn by a handful of celebs. Personally, I think these deserve a lot more attention because they’re absolutely fabulous. “Crosspiga” features the same silhouette as Louboutin’s most iconic style, the “Pigalle“, but “Crosspiga” has an extra two thin straps crossing on the arch. What a sexy shoe, right? If I had the money to buy myself a pair of Loubies without having to worry about how to pay next month’s rent, I’d so get these…

The black patent pump is lovely and classic, but my personal favorite would have to be the delicate gold snakeskin version. So glamorous!
