Let's be real. We all love designer handbags, jewelry, and shoes, but we don't love the price tag that comes with it. $1,000 for a handbag? $600 for a pair of shoes? NO THANK YOU. That's way too much money to spend on one item! If you're a college student like me, you're probably struggling to make ends meet, but still wishing you could afford those designer items you've always dreamed of. However, you don't need spend top dollar amounts to get these items because there are "dupes" that are just as nice, but come without the price tag!
Here are some of my favorite designer dupes:
(Designer on the left, dupe on the right)
Designer: Chanel Deauville Tote - $4,275.00
Dupe: Monogram Gabby Tweed Handbag - $68.00
Designer: Tory Burch Miller Sandals - $198.00
Dupe: Report Women's Genie Sandal - $39.99
Designer: Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM - $1,320.00
Dupe: Daisy Rose Checkered Tote Shoulder Bag - $49.78
Designer: Gucci Leather Belt with Double G - $350.00
Dupe: Solid Double G Belt - $18.00
Designer: Burberry Classic Check Cashmere Scarf - $430.00
Dupe: Plum Feathers Super Soft Luxurious Cashmere Scarf - $14.99
Designer: Hunter Tall Black Rain Boots - $150.00
Dupe: Nomad Hurricane III Waterproof Rain Boot - 39.97
Now, these are just a few of the more popular dupes. As styles change, there will always be more that appear between boutiques and online shops. You never need to pay full price to achieve the designer look you're going for because there will always be something similar for much less.
Do you have a designer dupe that you purchased? If so, what was it? Could you tell the difference between the designer and the dupe?
