Can we talk about this summer’s hottest footwear trend for a minute? Colorful, charm-embellished Pom Pom lace-up sandals. You’ve probably seen them all over Instagram already and now that summer is approaching, the trend is slowly emerging on the streets as well. It first started with Aquazzurals and Dolce & Gabbana I think; both houses came out with colorful Pom Pom shoes recently. Shortly after the “Penny Lane” lace-up gladiators by Elina Linardaki became a huge success and have started popping up on everyone’s fashion feed. And why wouldn’t they? Each pair is handmade in Greece and contrary to the likes of Aquazzura and Dolce & Gabbana, you don’t have to spend an arm or a leg to flaunt this summer’s hottest “It“-shoe.

Sam Edelman “Lisabeth” Beaded Pom Pom Lace-Up Sandals

Update (03/21/2017): Sam Edelman has officially joined the Pom Pom sandal trend game! Their “Lisabeth” sandal which looks astonishingly similar to the Chinese Laundry and River Island version isn’t exactly budget-friendly at $110, but will still save you quite a few dollars compared to the real deal.

These embellished lace-up sandals by Steve Madden are another great, but more toned down alternative of the Pom Pom lace-up sandal.

Mabu by Maria BK Embellished Leather Sandals

Now these Pom Pom lace-up sandals by Mabu by Maria BK won’t give you any price advantage compared to the Elina Linardaki version, but they are just as beautiful and I wanted to include these in case the Penny Lane sandals sell out and a suitable quality alternative will be needed.

Schutz “Patricia” Embellished Lace-Up Flat Gladiator Sandals

Last but not least are these super cute and playful lace-up flat sandals by Schutz. They’re missing the dangling Pom Poms, but as I wrote above, you can easily add them yourself, so if you prefer the conceptual design of these not so steal-worthy $190 now: $152 Schutz shoes, consider opting for these instead.

Stuart Weitzman + over-the-knee boots is apparently a foolproof formula for commercial success! Don’t believe me? Just look at all the various fab fashion bloggers rocking their Stuart Weitzman OTK boots below! It all started with the iconic “5050” and is now followed by Weitzman’s next set of super hit boots: the “Highland” (which we have already written about a few weeks ago, see the post here) and the “Lowland” which we are featuring in today’s Real vs. Steal post. Both boots are almost identical in design, but have either a flat heel (Lowland) or a high heel (Highland, d’uh!). It’s certainly not the first pair of OTK suede boots we’ve seen come out in the last couple of years, but definitely the most successful and coveted one (we’re still counting the reader requests for this one). As with Stuart Weitzman shoes in general, they don’t come cheap. Especially not the boots and especially not the over-the-knee kind of boots. These beauties here – please hold your breath here – cost $798! Yup, I cried a little too when I saw that price tag. Luckily, we were able to find a couple of fantastic dupes that will save you the trouble of having to rob a bank to sport this season’s hottest trend.

They do cost $500 $280 which is obviously a lot of money, but they will still save you $298 $518 compared to the real deal.

Dolce Vita “Neely” Flat Over-The-Knee Boots

My personal favorite first: the “Neely” boot from Dolce Vita, a spot-on “Lowland” dupe with very positive customer reviews for roughly 1/4 of the real deal’s price. At $200, it sure isn’t a steal find and probably won’t be an impulse buy for anyone here, but if you like the style I suggest you better hurry up with your purchase.

Aldo “Barra” Lace-Back Suede Over-The-Knee Boots

Next up is a boot by Aldo. “Barra” is also spot-on in terms of design when compared to the Lowland. It’s $110 cheaper than the Dolce Vita version, but the reviews for this one are also rather mixed. Anyway, if you want to give it a try, these boots come in either taupe or black suede.

Of course Steve Madden couldn’t miss the opportunity to join in on this knock-off game as well! “Odina”, like the other Lowland look-alikes above, is nearly identical to the real deal, but costs only $149.95. Though I do have to add that this boot has a fabric upper unlike the dupes above which are made of genuine leather.

Can we please have a moment of OMG!-silence for this AH!-mazing Balmain blazer? Consider me obsessed big time. If there ever existed something such as the perfect blazer, this gold-buttoned double-breasted navy wool-twill blazer which comes with Balmain’s signature razor-sharp silhouette would definitely be one of them. Just take a look at how gorgeous and effortlessly elegant all the beautiful ladies below look in their Balmain-adorned outfit ensembles. Perfection! I’d even be willing to splurge on a classic fashion staple such as this blazer, but its price of $2.385 is just beyond any common sense. My credit card does not approve.

It’s currently on sale for $63.95 and comes in an array of beautiful colors including navy, black, white, wine red and rose pink. Absolutely looooove this budget find!

Loft Double Breasted Blazer

Update (01/24/2017): Also found this navy double breasted blazer at Loft and it instantly reminded me of the Balmain one. It misses a few buttons to qualify as a designer dupe, but if you’re fine with a Balmain “inspired” design, this $128 blazer would be probably a good buy.

Update (12/06/2016): OK, so I spotted this beautiful Balmain dupe at Mango and just had to share this gorgeous nautical inspired navy blazer with you! Actually, I liked this one so much I ordered it for myself a couple days ago and I’m so happy I did because it’s the best Balmain dupe I’ve found and owned yet! Definitely worth the $79.99 price tag (sale price)! If you like this blazer, you better don’t wait too long as I’m pretty sure this beauty of a blazer will sell out in no time!

Stylekeepers “You Set Me Free” Double-Breasted Blazer

Update (08/01/2016): Just discovered this spot-on Balmain dupe by Stylekeepers in a beautiful khaki green for $145 AUD. If you prefer a more classic color, check out the “Sweet Success” blazer which looks similar to this one and comes in black.

Banana Republic Nautical-Style Basketweave Blazer

My personal favorite Balmain look for less alternative is this nautical basketweave blazer I discovered at Banana Republic recently. All the important Balmain details are there: a fitted silhouette, double-breasted front, gold buttons and a beautiful deep navy color. BR’s version has a couple differences such as a different material, but they’re rather minor and overall it’s still a gorgeous and budget-friendly alternative for the pricey Balmain blazer. Especially so if you take advantage of the 50% off sale promotion which is currently running at Banana Republic because it cuts down the price of this blazer down from $169.99 to $84.99 (that’s a saving of $2.300,01 compared to the real deal). Super steal deal alert!

Veronica Beard Seaside Double Breasted Blazer

Now this nautical blazer by Veronica Beard is probably the closest match to the real deal Balmain in terms of overall design, but it does cost almost $600, so it ranks as my current second favorite Balmain dupe. You would save a whopping $1.790 by opting for the Veronica Beard version though, so I still consider this blazer to be a pretty good bargain nonetheless!

A similar version is also available at Veronica Beard.

Brooks Brothers Wool Double-Breasted Blazer

Another gorgeous blazer and pretty awsome Balmain alternative is this lovely navy blazer by Brooks Brothers. The key details are spot-on Balmain, Brooks Brothers is known for their high-quality tailoring and did I mention this beauty of a blazer is currently on sale for $274 (was $548). Sure, it’s not a steal at that price, but it might be worth the investment because a navy blazer is so versatile.

Vero Moda Military Blazer

And here’s a little little something for all you European Balmain lovers out there! These military-inspired double-breasted blazers by Vero Moda are a pretty spot-on Balmain dupe for less than €50 (sale price!). You’re welcome.

J.Crew Double-Breasted Blazer

Not available in navy, but these blazers by J.Crew also reminded me of the Balmain one above because the design and silhouette are so similar. If you’re all about the navy color, check out this other J.Crew blazer which I found at J.Crew Factory for $79 (sale price!).

If you really want to snatch a steal deal here, these Balmain inspired blazers by Missguided which cost $56 might be a considerable look for less option. It’s just too bad these don’t come in navy.

I have a feeling this summer will be the summer of the espadrille. First we had Valentino’s lace espadrilles and Chanel’s iconic cap-toe espadrille flats and Céline have created their own version in form of this pony hair espadrille slipper which also comes in gorgeous leopard print and royal blue (my fave!). I couldn’t find a retail price for these, but I’m sure they’re totally out of my budget.

Spring is officially around the corner and I can’t wait to ditch all of my winter clothes and finally pull out airy dresses and open-toed sandals from their winter hiatus. But since Spring isn’t in full bloom yet, we can’t probably do without a warm coat or jacket, but we can definitely welcome the new season by lightening up our wardrobe with pastel colors for example which is what I tried to do in this week’s budget look edition. Let me know if you like it!
