Chances are you’re already pretty familiar with these double-strapped ribbon tie ballerina flats by Miu Miu because these ballerinas are the “It shoe” of the summer and the latest shoe trend to take over our fashion feeds. As you can see below some of our favorite bloggers and IGers have already been prancing the streets in those cute and quirky ballet flats channeling their inner prima ballerina. I must admit I haven’t been actively following Miu Miu’s collections for a while now, but these shoes made me fall in love with Miuccia Prada’s younger fashion line all over again. I just love how the belted straps toughen up the otherwise overly sweet ballerina design thus giving them an edgy and modern vibe while at the same time still maintaining a classic and feminine look. Also, how cool is the idea of wearing them with mismatched ribbon laces? Pure genius and so refreshingly new and creative! Naturally, we’ve gotten quite a few requests to find budget-friendly alternatives for these much sought after Miu Miu flats because a) these babies cost a whopping $620 now: $670 and b) the popular versions like the nude one for example are basically sold out everywhere anyway. Ergo: challenge accepted!

Steve Madden “Meow” Ribbon Tie Ballerina Flats

Last but not least are these lace-up flats by Steve Madden.

Also how buttery soft does the blush leather look like here? Amazing for $35.95 (sale price!), no? Other available color options include black and silver metallic.

Just as recently promised today is the day we’re finally covering the incredibly popular Gucci “Princetown” loafer mules that have been constantly flooding our fashion feeds for roughly the past twelve months. If Stuart Weitzman’s “Highland” overknee boots have been the “It“-shoe for Fall/Winter, Gucci’s “Princetown” is the absolute must-have shoe for Spring/Summer. We’re admittedly pretty late to the party, but even though the loafer mule trend has been around for quite a while now, there seem to be no signs of slowing down anytime soon. And with Spring around the corner, Gucci’s “Princetown” is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. That is, if you can stomach the price tag of $595, of course. Luckily, there’s no need to shell out a fortune to be right on trend this season as we have compiled a list of more than *drumroll please* 20, yes, TWENTY Gucci “Princetown” alternatives for you to satisfy all your fashion needs! This is an absolute first in the history of this blog; to start out with so many designer dupes right from the get-go. It only goes to show just how insanely popular (and probably super comfy) this footwear trend is at the moment. I also love how ELLE referred to loafer mules as “…the mullet of office-friendly footwear” which is one of the funniest fashion metaphors I’ve read in a while.

AnnaKastle Backless Slip-On Loafer Mules

AnnaKastle is a brand I have recently discovered on Amazon and they have the biggest selection of Gucci “Princetown” dupes I’ve yet come across. Fur, no fur, embroidered, printed, you name it, they got it. I assume the merchant is operating somewhere from Asia to be able to produce such spot-on “Princetown” look-alikes and most of the dupes sell for ~$50. Customer reviews average around 4/5 stars, so I’d say they’re worth taking a closer look at. I wouldn’t say they’ll last you a lifetime, but if you want to try the trend without breaking the bank, this one might be a suitable option. By the way, my personal favorite of the Gucci dupe bunch is the rose embroidered one, it’s so pretty!

Steven by Steve Madden “Razzi” Slipper Mules

Let’s make a full circle here and close as we began: with Steve Madden. Apparently one Gucci “Princetown” dupe was not enough for Steve Madden, so they came up with multiple more and we decided to show you the Steven by Steve Madden “Razzi” which is available in a velvet version as pictured below, but also comes in other exotic variations like studs or python print. The price point for these designer dupe beauties ranges between $62.99 to $107.99. My favorite of the bunch: soft pink suede! A Barbie dream come true!

I don’t actively follow swimwear fashion, so for me to take notice of a swimwear trend, it really takes a lot of hype and medial exposure (yes, I have seen you, Triangl bikinis!) or a very, very beautiful bikini/swimsuit. Marysia‘s scalloped “Antibes” swimwear is easily both: beautiful and dearly loved by celebs and online influencers worldwide. The scalloped swimsuits and bikinis regularly get a fair share of social media exposure and are universally flattering for women of all shapes and sizes. Now if only they weren’t so darn expensive, the “Antibes” bikini set will set you back $282.

Update (04/12/2017): Found spot-on Marysia Antibes look-alike bikinis at Rosegal and various other Asian-based online-shops. They come in multiple colors and designs and most of them are super cheap, but fit and sizing can be off sometimes when it comes to Asian clothing, so be aware of this possible issue and consider ordering various sizes (especially if your top and bottom aren’t 100% proportional).

Alright, let’s talk Gucci again. I know we’ve already featured the “Princetown” loafer mules here on this blog before, but that was just the basic, no-frills version and ever since the huge success of the “Princetown” loafer, Gucci has released like a gazillion variations of new Princetowns, so we felt obligated to show you at least one more of the most coveted Princetown styles. This blog post will focus on the floral embroidered one which features a delicate pink rose embroidery on the vamp and either comes with a fur trim on the footbed ($1.050) or not ($780). If you can afford the real deal, by all means, go for it since there are absolutely no signs of the loafer mule trend slowing down this summer. But if you’re on a tight budget and dropping that kind of money on ONE pair of shoes is simply not justifiable to you, keep on reading as we’ve discovered some amazing Gucci alternatives that won’t break the bank.

LaRosa Embroidered Slip-On Loafer Mules

And lastly, here’s a Gucci Princetown look-alike made of genuine leather for under $60! I found this dupe while browsing Amazon recently, the brand is called LaRosa and the loafer mules come in either black or white. I can’t personally vouch for this brand as I think these Gucci dupes are from one of those many generic China-based copycat sellers, but judging by the pictures, the quality looks decent for $59.99.

Self-Portrait. How could we have possibly missed out on covering this new and super coveted brand for so long? Sorry about that, folks. But before we head into showing you our best Self-Portrait steal finds, here are a few facts about the contemporary fashion label: it was founded in 2013 by Han Chong (also former creative director of Three Floor) and quickly gained red carpet and social media buzz shortly after, landing dress gigs with celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon and Miranda Kerr as well as personal style bloggers like Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) and Kristina Bazan (Kayture). The signature aesthetic of the London-based brand are feminine, romantic dresses and separates with lots of lace, embroidery and sheer overlays which have a surprisingly appealing price point: Dresses typically fall in the $500-$600 price range. And while I honestly applaud Han Chong for wanting to create a mid-priced fashion label with lots of attention to detail, $480 is still a lot of money for a lot of people (even though I’ll admit the “Azaelea” dress, which by the way got silently renamed correctly to “Azalea” in the meantime, thus probably referring to the flower, pictured below looks like it’s worth every penny of it). Keep on reading to find various stylish Self-Portrait dress alternatives for much less.

Another gorgeous Self-Portrait Azaelea alternative is this lace midi dress by H&M. It’s currently only available in yellow (also comes in white and rose pink now), but it does look lovely and so similar to the real deal, right?

So if you’re a fan of feminine lace summer dresses, this one is a great buy!

LuLu*s Pinnacle of Prestige Lace Midi Dress

If you can’t afford spending half a grand on a flirty summer dress, here’s our best steal find (yet!) which I discovered at LuLu*s some time ago. And I would’ve showed you this lovely $64 lace midi dress some time ago already, but it kept selling out so fast – restock after restock – that I didn’t even have enough time to finish up this blog post before this dress was completely sold out again, so I patiently waited until it got restocked for what feels like the tenth time now and for the first time it didn’t sell out in the first 60 minutes. Yay! However, this dress is obviously still wildly popular, so I wouldn’t wait too long with buying. Who knows if it’ll be restocked for an eleventh time?

Persun Flower Embellished Cami Dress

And of course, where there’s a trend Asian copycats can’t be too far away. The design of the Persun midi lace dress is very close to the real deal (including the colors), but I can’t tell for sure whether the quality is worth paying $37.99 for.

Similar dress options are also available by Choies & Jessica Buurman.

Free People South Of The Equator Midi Dress

OK, now this Self-Portrait steal find kind of irritates me. Don’t get me wrong: I love Free People and I looooove designer dupes. But what I don’t understand is how you can blatantly copy a $480 dress and then sell your own copied version for a whopping $300 (now on sale for $69.95), thus making both dresses compete in the same price range? Now that’s a little shameless, isn’t it? Even for blatant copycats. Anyway, I still wanted to include this dress option because it does look a lot like the real deal and it is in fact still $180 $380 cheaper than the original, so if you’re OK with paying that much money for a copycat design, feel free to do so.
