The Look For Less- Designer Dupes!
While I am such a sucker for a great designer find, I know that it isn’t practical for everyone. What started as finding more affordable options for each look, has turned into a full blown hobby of searching the web for the best designer dupes out there! If you have something you’d love to see a dupe option, be sure to comment below. I’ll do my best to find it for you.
Keep in mind that a lot of times the quality of these is just not going to be the same as the designer brand. I will wear my pieces over and over so quality is worth it to me. For trendier items or pieces you do not wear repeatedly, it makes sense to save the $$.
Quick note: ** I am all about “dupe” items. These are items that are inspired by a designer look, but do not steal any branding/logos etc. It sometimes can be used with “counterfeit” items. I do not share those. You can research more into the many reasons why you should steer clear of counterfeit items.

SPLURGE- I have several of their pieces, and they are a really great quality. While, they are boho they do last from season to season.
I’ve got an entire post on the fit of authentic ones, where to find them on sale and TONS of dupes. You can find that post HERE.
You can find a few of the awesome dupes below:
Anine Bing is by far my most worn designer. Her pieces are a bit edgy and rock and roll, but also classic. They fit well and are made well. They are the type that are on trend, but still carry from season to season. Most all of them can be mixed and matched with her other pieces. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this designer. BUT. That comes with a pretty high price point too. I’ve found tons of great options that look almost identical, but at super affordable price points.
