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.

Colorful Pom Pom sandals are all the rage this summer, but if you can’t be bothered with complicated and tedious lace-up gladiator styles which take forever to get laced just right, these embellished leather slides by Schutz are a great and just as fabulous alternative – they’re super easy to put on and off which thus makes them the perfect beach or pool shoes for your summer vacation. But if you don’t see yourself spending $160 on a pair of trendy leather slides, well, we just happened to come across an absolute spot-on Schutz “Estelen” look-alike by Steve Madden. The design of Madden’s “Gypsy” is pretty much identical, even the arrangement of the embellishments is almost the exact same! The only noticeable difference here is the $79 price tag on the Steve Maddens which makes them half as expensive as the pricey Schutz sandals. Which slide-on sandals do you prefer, Madden or Schutz? And would you rather splurge or save on this shoe trend? Let us know!

If Schutz hasn’t been on your radar yet, I think these sultry-looking caged heels named “Juliana” are about to change that in a second. But let’s get the facts first: Schutz is a Brasil based footwear brand which has been around for 20 years now, but has only gained significant momentum in the last 3-4 years. Schutz’ success partly stems from the influx of fashion bloggers and famous Instagrammers wearing their shoes and “Juliana” seems to have been an especially popular shoe style of theirs (see picture collage below). You can often find designer-inspired styles in Schutz’ collections, but they always manage to infuse those inspired styles with the brand’s own unique aesthetic. I’m not sure whether “Juliana” is a designer-inspired style (if so, I couldn’t tell), but I absolutely adore it anyway! It’s such a sexy and flattering high heel and I just love the spider web-like, diamond-shaped cut-out design. Total shoe hotness! And while $190 isn’t a terribly expensive price for shoes (if you compare it to those of designer shoes, of course), there’s still room to save here, I think!

Don’t get me wrong: I loooooove high heels with utmost passion, but when summer is blazing its heatwaves upon us, the last thing I would think of wearing are high heeled shoes. A good flat sandal that you can easily slide in and out of and walk in for hours is absolutely essential in the summer; especially if you’re planning to go on vacation. Flip flops would be an obvious choice here, but aren’t we so over them by now? That’s why I am absolutely smitten with these backless knotted sandal leather slides by Joie. I love their minimalistic yet chic design (made in Italy, btw) and the supple cowhide leather; these would go with almost anything in my wardrobe. And while they’re not terribly expensive at $125, we understand that many of you are on a budget, so we made it our mission to find some great alternative options for much less. Just keep on reading.

Alex + Alex Leather Thong Sandals

Update (03/06/2016): These Alex + Alex thong sandals have an extra back strap, but the overall design is obviously inspired by the Joie sandals above.

Mossimo Supply Co. “Ainsley” Knot Thong Sandals

If you’re on a really tight budget, then these cute thong sandals by Mossimo Supply Co. are probably your best option. The design is spot-on, they come in three different colors (black, brown and white) and they can be yours for less than $15! Only downside? These are made of PU leather, so no promises regarding durability and/or sweaty feet here.

Sole Society “Sarena” Knotted Slip-On Thong Sandals

If you’re willing to invest a little more for a genuine leather option, check out these chic summer sandals by Sole Society. Again, these are pretty much a spot-on dupe compared to the Joies above (plus, I love that these are made of genuine leather). The price of $29.98 (sale!) ain’t too bad either (that’s less than half the price of the real deal).

Naya “Crescent” Huarache Sandals

Another look-for-less option would be these huarache sandals by Naya. They have a very similar design and come in various color combinations (and are genuine leather, too), plus they’re currently on sale for a budget-friendly $44.99.

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.

Update (07/02/2016): This jeans by Daisy Street isn’t really a Current/Elliott dupe, but the star appliques do give them a similar look, so I decided to add them as a budget-friendly alternative.

Only Star Print Skinny Jean

Luckily, we have a few brands from more affordable sectors that have also incorporated the star print trend. These skinny jeans by Only are a great alternative if you’re craving the designer look but don’t want to splurge on the original. The print is more opaque on these, but everythings else seems virtually identical.
