Every few couple years or so, a new designer ankle boot emerges to take over the fashion world by storm. It then quickly becomes an iconic must-have staple in the seemingly endless shoe closets of every fashion-conscious stylist, celebrity, influencer and editor. Right now I feel like it’s Givenchy turn for some serious shoe fame. Their “Prue” ankle boot is a classic, flat biker boot with 4 buckled straps and micro-stud details which you’ve probably seen dozens of times on the feet of your favorite Insta-people by now. It’s a shoe versatile enough to work with a lot of different fashion styles, but still detailed enough to stand out on its own to spice up an otherwise basic or bland outfit. Unfortunately, this much fabulousness comes at a very hefty price: $1.395! Let’s not kid ourselves: that’s a lot of money which probably would be more wisely spent on other, more useful things. You know, boring grown-up stuff like rent, mortgage, food and health insurance. Luckily, we’ve found various just as stylish, affordable Givenchy Prue alternatives that will leave enough money in your pockets to pay the bills.

Steve Madden Reena Studded Buckle Booties

Update (11/14/2017): I guess one Givenchy look-alike wasn’t enough to capitalize on this major shoe trend style, so Steve Madden came up with a second one which looks a little more spot-on to the real deal compared to Madden’s “Pursue” ankle boots. Available in black faux leather for $89.95.

Le Temps Des Cerises Izy Micro-Stud Buckle Ankle Boots

Update (11/14/2017): Also stumbled upon these super fab studded booties by French fashion brand Le Temps Des Cerises which look so much like the high end designer version. I just wish they would’ve gone without the brand name stud strap, but oh well, you can’t always have it all, now can you? Price: €139.95.

Missguided Studded Four Buckle Strap Ankle Boots

Update (11/07/2017): These studded booties by Missguided might not have the micro-studs going around the sole, but their overall design still very much reminds me of Givenchy, don’t you agree? Price: $60. If you’re a student, you should definitely take advantage of Missguided’s student discount which they offer all year round.

Steve Madden “Pursue” Studded Buckle Booties

Let’s start with Steve Madden. “Pursue” is an ankle boot which is obviously inspired by the Givenchy Prue above without being a blatant copy which costs roughly 10% of the designer real deal.

Sol Sana Maxwell Studded Flat Ankle Boots

Another great Givenchy look for less option would be this microstud buckle bootie by Sol Sana which is one of the most expensive alternatives as it retails for $200. This ankle boot is heavily inspired by Givenchy’s Prue but not an identical dupe or copy if this is a concern of yours.

EGO Ximena Studded Detail Biker Boots

A rather spot-on but inexpensive Givenchy Prue look-alike are these faux leather booties by EGO which retail for affordable £34.99. But let me mention the best part: students get a 25% discount, that’s a saving of almost £9 on these booties! Steal deal alert! A similar shoe style available is the “Halo” which has a more traditional biker boot design.

Office Academic Leather Stud Buckle Boots

Another one of my Givenchy dupe favorites are these lovely Office ankle boots I spotted at ASOS recently. Again, heavily inspired by the pricey designer original, but not an identical 1:1 copy. If you’re not a fan of excessive studding, a similar version sans studs on the buckle straps is the “Amsterdam” boot (£90), also by Office.

Stradivarius Leather Ankle Boots with Studs

Another similar Givenchy studded boot option is this buckled ankle bootie by Stradivarius which I have personally purchased because I liked the look and the price for this genuine leather dupe. Definitely a recommendation!

Bestowal Studded Multi Buckle Ankle Boots

Looking for a spot-on Givenchy look-alike made of genuine leather? Then have a look at this studded boot by Bestowal I came across at Choies. The design is almost identical and the price of $115.99 seems somewhat reasonable.

Fall has officially arrived now and I am slowly starting to build my winter wardrobe. Acne Studios‘ “Velocite” shearling jacket has been an obsession of mine for several years. I just love the luxe-looking, plush shearling lining, the straps and buckles, the oversized moto look. It’s the perfect winter jacket and just look how fab and cozy all the style bloggers look in their Acne Velocite below. The only thing holding me back to get my own Acne Velocite? The price tag, of course. $2.800 is a pretty steep price.

We have featured many, many shoes and bags from Valentino’s “Rockstud” family already, but must embarrasingly admit that we have missed out on the most popular style yet, the 4 inch high heel t-strap version as seen below. Sorry, guys! So what could possibly be said about this shoe that hasn’t been said before? It’s THE SHOE by Valentino and you’ve probably seen it like a gazillion times in your Instagram feed, in fashion magazines and on the feet of your favorite celebrities and fashion bloggers. But despite the medial Valentino overexposure I am still just as much in love with the Rockstud heels as they day I first saw them! These heels ooze pure elegance and they’re so versatile, too! Dress them up with a lacey LBD or down with some distressed denim, you will look flawless either way! If you can afford them, that is. $995 is not exactly pocket money.

Sole Society “Tiia” Studded T-Strap Heels

Update (12/05/2016): Just found out that Sole Society restocked the “Tiia” heel in both black and nude patent, so if you missed out on these fab Valentino Rockstud dupes the first time round, now’s your second chance to snag these pretty pumps.

You might recognize these studded t-strap heels by Sole Society because we have already featured them in the Valentino Rockstud Kitten Heels Real vs. Steal post a while back. That’s because they look like a hybrid between the 4 inch Rockstud and the kitten heel version and could work as a look for less alternative for either of the Rockstuds. And at $69.95 they’re quite affordable, too! Score!

Kaitlyn Pan Pointed Toe Studded Slingback High Heel Pumps

Favorites first! My personal fave Valentino Rockstud dupe comes from Kaitlyn Pan and I think you’ll have a hard time finding better and more spot-on Valentino look-alikes than the ones they have to offer. I’ve been following Kaitlyn Pan’s product catalogamazon for several months now and they have hands down *the* best-looking designer dupes I’ve seen in a very long time. Sure, these $113.99 heels are not the cheapest Valentino dupes around, but look at the 165 customer reviews raving about their Valentino look for less heels (make sure to also check out the customer’s own photos) and you’ll know this money will be a smart investment as you’ll get a good high-quality dupe that will last you for a while. And did I mention these Rockstud knockoffs come in 19 colors? I simply want them all!

Arturo Chiang “Gracen” Pointy Toe Studded Pumps

Another fabulous Valentino Rockstud alternative are these studded t-strap pumps by Arturo Chiang which come in various colors including black, nude, red, navy and gold. The heel on these is half an inch shorter than the real deal and they’re not quite as spot-on as the Kaitlyn Pan version, but they do happen to be cheaper and are also made of genuine leather, so that’s quite a steal deal if you ask me. A couple of sizes are already out of stock, so you better hurry if you find yourself fancying a pair.

Here’s another super spot-on Valentino Rockstud dupe for you! It’s by a brand called Royou Yiuoer which obviously is a pretty bad word play on Roger Vivier and is most likely an Asian brand. The quality of these Valentino knockoffs looks pretty decent as does the price of $59.99 for genuine leather pumps, but it’s a relatively new brand to me and the shoes have received only one customer review yet (which gives them 5 stars though), so that’s why I’ll recommend this one with reservation. Order at your own risk! You can choose between 13 beautiful colors and uppers!

Loslandifen Studded T-Strap PU High Heel Pumps

If you’re on a tight budget and need a cheap Valentino fix, these Rockstud look-alike PU heels by Loslandifen might do the trick for you. The quality of these is nothing to get all too excited about, but they look like the real deal, are less than $30 and come in a variety of beautiful colors.

I know this may not be the best time to be posting about summer sandals now that we’re almost halfway through fall, but I just couldn’t pass up on showing you these effortlessly chic “Tribute” slides by (Yves) Saint Laurent. I have proclaimed my undying love for the “Tribute” platform high heel version in the past and I do still love it dearly, but let’s be real: 5 inch heels just aren’t always a viable footwear option (long beach strolls and cobblestone walks, anyone?). Hence a classic pair of flat sandals like these timeless slides will probably get the most mileage during any summer vacation, especially if you can just easily slide in and out of them and take a quick dip in the pool without having to deal with untying your shoes first. Ain’t nobody got time for that, right? What I also ain’t got though, are the $595 in order to make these gorgeous shoes mine. Someday maybe, but not today. So in the meantime I will have to settle for a look for less option.

Massimo Matteo “Tina” Slide Sandals

Fortunately, I have been lucky enough to come across these amazing and spot-on “Tribute” sandal slide dupes by Massimo Matteo! They come in various uppers and colors and look almost identical to the real deal. But the best part? They’re on sale for $55.99 (down from $79) which is less than 10% of the designer version! Now that’s what I call a real steal deal, my fellow budget-conscious fashionistas!

I think we can all agree that a black leather jacket is an absolute wardrobe staple and should be owned by every man and woman. I also think we can all agree on the fact that Acne Studios happens to make some of the best leather jackets everrrrrrr! (Velocite aviator jacket, anyone?) – Unfortunately, Acne leather jackets (also leather jackets in general) come at a price; in this particular case at $1.650 which is obviously a lot of money, even for a really cool leather jacket. But fret not, my dear fashionistas on a budget! Just keep on scrolling to discover how to get the uber-cool Acne moto look for a whole lot less.

Mango “Liz” Appliqué Faux Leather Biker Jacket

Update (10/11/2017): Mango strikes again! Found another batch of Acne “Mock” inspired biker jackets in their latest fall collection. I really like the “Liz” which is a faux leather moto jacket that comes in a variety of lovely colors and retails for less than $80!

Mango “Sophie” Leather Biker Jacket

Update (10/11/2017): Mango obviously really, really loves Acne’s biker jacket designs because I also stumbled upon these pastel-colored genuine leather jackets which also look a lot like the real deal: belt = check, zippers = check, cute little pocket = check! A little pricey at $299.99, but still better than $1.650!

New Look Leather-Look Biker Jacket

Update (10/11/2017): And lastly, if you’re after something very affordable and budget-friendly, here’s a cute option I came across at New Look. Not quite as polished as the other, more pricier options shown here, but the overall look still reminds me of the Acne jacket and you can’t beat the price of £39.99.

Mango “Solange” Leather Biker Jacket

Update (04/28/2017): Just discovered another Acne Mock jacket alternative, again by Mango, which is spot-on to the real deal and made of genuine leather (hence the steep price tag of $249.99). A similar but slightly longer option can be found here.

Mango Carla2 Zipped Biker Jacket

While browsing through Mango‘s new arrivals recently, I happened to stumble upon this Acne Mock inspired moto leather jacket which retails for under $100 and comes in either black or white. It’s also made of faux PU leather, so this jacket is both budget- and animal-friendly! Love! If you’re really after a genuine leather Acne jacket dupe however, check out this option for $199.99 (available in black, red and brown).
