I don’t know how they do it, but Yves Saint Laurent makes some of the most iconic shoes I’ve ever seen. Especially their “Tribute” collection is a hit among celebrities, fashion connoisseurs and us totally obsessed shoe freaks. I’ve loved the Tribute sandals from the first moment I saw them, but never got the chance to go for the real deal or snap up one of the various knockoffs (check!) back then when they were considered the “It” shoe of the year. My favorite Tribute sandal was the purple suede version with gold trimming, but the black patent version is of course more versatile.

Office “Nostalgia” Platform Heels

Update (07/06/2016): Spotted yet another almost spot-on Yves Saint Laurent Tribute dupe at Office. Like Steve Madden’s “Kananda” version, this one too, is missing the t-strap on the front, but otherwise the design is so close to the real deal. Available in nude patent or gold leather for affordable £62.

Fersengold “Paris” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (05/01/2016): Just stumbled upon these spot-on YSL Tribute look-alike heels by German shoe brand Fersengold which come in either nude or blue patent leather. I also like the Fendi influencels here with the gold f-letter plate on the platform. They’re not the budget-friendliest steal find at £175, but might be worth the investment if you’re looking for a high-quality YSL dupe.

Steve Madden “Kananda” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (01/20/2016): And here we are, almost 6 years after the last find, here we have yet another YSL Tribute look-alike by Steve Madden (minus the t-strap). And I think this one’s the best one yet! “Kananda” is available in various colors and uppers for $99.99.

rsvp “Evelyn” T-Strap Sandals

Update (05/02/2011): Here’s another great and almost identical YSL Tribute look-a-like coming from rsvp. The only noticeable difference is the lower heel. These come in black, fuchsia, red, nude, gold and silver patent. Apart from the black patent version all the other colors have been marked down to a super affordable $55.

Steve Madden “DAARLING” T-Strap Sandals

Update (03/28/2010): Check out Steve Madden‘s second take on the Tribute sandal. Available in black, nude & natural patent, denim and leopard.

I still prefer the first one, but this heel has some major advantages. It is a) not sold out, b) cheaper and c) way easier to walk in because of the lower heel (the platform helps, too).

Steve Madden T-Bar Platform Sandals

Update (12/04/2009): Woohoo! You lucky gals. ASOS is now selling the Steve Madden sandals at the amazing price of £32 at their online outlet store. That is 60% OFF the original retail price! I bought these babies full price six months ago there and they look absolutely fantastic in person. So worth the price.

YSL lovers, today’s your lucky day! These Steve Madden platform sandals have completely sold out everywhere else, but ASOS has still a few of these fabtastic heels in limited sizes available. Be quick to order because this is the final sale and probably also your last chance for a great YSL Tribute knockoff of such great quality. I love mine so much! They are absolutely amazing looking for knockoffs and while £80 were certainly not cheap, I haven’t put a second thought whether or not to buy them and ordered straight away after they added my size. My tip: if your feet are slightly wider than average I suggest you go at least half a size up so your toes won’t get squished.

Guess Trivan T-Strap Platform Sandals

There have been countless YSL Tribute sandal knockoffs, but only a handful of them were actually decent looking. These YSL look-a-likes by Guess are one of the best knockoffs which are still being sold. So if you haven’t got the chance to grab a knockoff back then, you can now catch up on this!

If you’re looking for something more budget-friendly, you’ll probably be happy with these Gianni Bini platforms. They are currently on sale for half the price being marked down from $98 to $49.99 and come in black or tan (my favorite!). But hurry, sizes are limited.

I simply call these cat-eye sunnies by Pradathe blogger shades” because I’ve already spotted them numerous times on a bunch of fab personal style bloggers and a few celebrities such as model at large, Miranda Kerr, too. And I can totally see why these sunglasses are so highly coveted: they are the perfect symbiosis between cat-eye and oversized, bold in shape, but minimalistic in design. I feel like they’re an updated version of those retro cat eye sunglasses from the 50s. And like so many before me, I, too, fell hopelessly in love with these sunnies. So, after a few months of contemplation, I finally gave in and bought them (with prescription lenses, a first for me). And what can I say? They’ve been my favorite pair of sunglasses ever since! Totally worth the money (of course, I made sure to get a good deal on them and bypassed paying retail). No buyer’s remorse whatsoever.

Forever 21 Glossy Round Sunglasses

Update (07/02/2016): Stumbled upon a great and super cheap (under $6!) Prada sunglass dupe at Forever 21 today. These round cat-eye sunnies may not be available in black (at the moment), but the frame design is spot-on and I think the blush version would be a nice color update for summer.

Reinventing denim is not an easy task, but somehow the fashion industry manages to come up with new trends and variations season after season. A few trends from the last couple years have been: distressed/destroyed, ombré, floral print and pastels for example. Star print has been quite popular lately as well (we have written about Current/Elliott‘s star printed denim shorts here). Last year they also released a super chic semi-sheer star-print skinny jean which I loved! The print instantly adds interest to the outfit and takes this jeans from plain ordinary to fashionably chic. But $220? Designer denim sure isn’t for everyone’s wallet.

InStyle’s July issue features some of the best shorts of the season, but they must not have seen this patriotic pair by Current/Elliott! The classic wash and length makes them incredibly versatile, not to mention how cute the subtle sandblasted star pattern is when paired with a simple t-shirt and flat sandals. But if wearing denim shorts all summer long isn’t the most practical for your lifestyle, perhaps you could invest in a less expensive pair to wear during all your 4th of July festivities. Scroll down to see our best find yet!

Lucky Brand “Riley” Star-Print Frayed Shorts

Now that you’ve seen this pair by Lucky Brand, and have stars in your eyes, what will the rest of your outfit look like? You’ve got so many great options! I’d suggest starting with a knit top or blouse in a personally flattering shade of red, dark blue or gray and add accessories in your favorite metallic shade. Maybe it’s an armful of silver bangles or perhaps some thin gold hoops? Either way, it’s best to select more understated pieces to keep the look elegant and not costumey. Lastly, finish the outfit with some nautical-inspired wedges, boat shoes or your favorite causal footwear… and most importantly, relax and have fun!
