Great flats are hard to find. Especially ones that will look chic even with work attire. These ballerinas by Valentino are perfect to wear with chic cigarette pants to the office and look just as fantastic with leggings and a tunic on the weekend. The studs give them a little bit of a vampy edge while the color makes fair-skinned legs look longer. There is even a tiny hint of a heel to balance them out and provide an extra bit of polish. But even though they are quite gorgeous, they are also a little too expensive for everyday flats. The concept is not completely lost though; there are at least a couple inspired-by versions out there for way less. Keep scrolling down for more tips and info on where to find them!

C Label Hudson 10 Studded Ballerina Flats

This first version by C Label has the same studs as the original as well as the beautiful overall shape and construction. The small difference is their slightly higher heel which I love because even though flats are phenomenal for long days on your feet, that extra half inch goes a long way. But that definitely wouldn’t change how you’d wear them; they would still be perfect with skinny or tailored boot cut trousers and a feminine blouse for work. Just throw on a colorful cardigan and instantly feel inspired by a fresh new take on a little 1950’s glamour.

GoJane Studded Flats

The second option we found is from GoJane, and at under $25 for the pair, you can be sure you’re getting a steal. This style works especially well when worn with jeans and a tee for running errands or grabbing brunch or coffee over the weekend with friends. The cut of the shoe is the exactly same as the designer version, the only difference is the hardware and studs, which are more modest in design. But while the other styles might be dressier, these still look sharp and classic; plus your feet will thank you for giving them a day of rest once in a while.

And we’re back to Chanel. Back to the now uber-famous and highly popular Chanel espadrilles, to be exact. We have already written about the black mesh pair and this time we’re showing you the just as lovely canvas version. And while I do think that they are really beautiful and would make a great pair of summer shoes, there’s absolutely no way I’d pay more than $500 for a pair of espadrilles! Not gonna happen, not even if they’re Chanel.

So I first fell in love with these gorgeous satin mules by No. 21 while writing up a Real vs. Steal post on the Mua Mua Instagram Bag last September. And it seems like a lot of you were equally in love with these beauties as I have received several reader requests to feature a budget-friendly alternative, one of them coming from Stephanie:

I have been looking for a dupe for the N¬į21 satin high heel mule. Please post a duplicate if you find any.

Thanks S.P.G.

Your wish is my command, Stephanie. I couldn’t find a perfect dupe yet, but I am positively sure some of the usual suspects will catch onto this shoe trend and give us a budget-friendly alternative for under $150 soon. Pretty, please?

Not an identical dupe and unfortunately not available in green satin, but still quite close to the real deal. Price: $53 and the “Havoc” is also available in gold.

Such a bummer they don’t come in a satin version though!

I know I already mentioned that Aquazzura is having quite the fashion moment with bloggers right now, but WOW!, I then went on to discover another one of their latest top sellers: Wild Thing, a delicate suede high heel sandal with intricate lace up tassels and a fringed vamp. Now I don’t know about you, but even though the shoe looks lovely on its own, I wasn’t too compelled at first. But then I started seeing all those gorgeous personal style bloggers donning their Wild Things on Instagram and all of a sudden I found myself completely obsessed with this shoe! I love how many of the bloggers used it to either add a pop of color or to compliment their already colorful outfit. I so wish I could lavishly spend $785 on a pair of shoes, but rent is not gonna pay by itself unfortunately.

Ivanka Trump “Hethal” Suede Fringe High Heel Sandals

Update (03/22/2017): Juicy details coming up with a new steal find! As you might know Aquazzura has filed a lawsuit againgst the Ivanka Trump brand last year for allegedly copying their highly popular “Wild Thing” design. As far as I am informed, the lawsuit hasn’t been settled yet, but I guess the folks at Ivanka Trump are either not particularly worried ooooor really pissed off at Aquazzura because Ivanka Trump released a new shoe design that looks A LOT like the “Hettie” sandal with only a few minor changes such as the metal hoop on the fringed vamp and the missing tassels on the laces which IV replaced with metal caps instead, which, coincidentally or not, are also heavily used by Aquazzura (e.g. on the “Christy” flats). Now THAT’s a bold move when you’re in the middle of a (possibly? probably!) multi-million dollar lawsuit! Really curious to see how that copycat feud is going to turn out. In the meantime, you can purchase these admittedly lovely shoes for a budget-friendly price of $90.99 (sale price!). Make sure to use promo code “LTDAYS” at checkout to get an extra 20% off regular and sale items at Lord & Taylor (offer valid through March 29th at 11:59 PM EST, some exclusions may apply). This would lower the price of these shoes down to less than $80.

Maiden Lane Fringed Ankle-Wrap Suede Sandals

Update (03/22/2017): To take some pressure off of Ivanka Trump though, she’s definitely not the only one copying Aquazzura (obviously, just look at this long list of “Wild Thing” dupes here). Maiden Lane decided to hop on the “Wild Thing” trend bandwagon as well and thus came up with an almost spot-on look-alike shoe. The only noticeable difference is the heel height which is significantly lower on the Maiden Lane version which I personally really like because it makes the shoe so much more w/bearable. I just wonder whether Maiden Lane decided to go with a lower heel because they didn’t want to anger Aquazzura too much and be the possible cause of yet another copycat lawsuit? We’ll probably never know. Anyway, these heels are available in red, taupe and black suede for $129. But hurry, some sizes are already out of stock!
