Look, we love designer as much as the next person. But our wallets don’t, and we don’t blame them! Splurging out hundreds of dollars on bags, shoes and accessories is something we can aspire to, sure, but is it really realistic? No.

Which is why we are forever thankful to those sneaky dupes you can find on the net – that give you the look for less.

A dupe is essentially a product that is designed in a similar style and silhouette as a coveted designer item, but at a much lower price point. 

And there are many brands available at reputable, trustworthy websites that offer affordable alternatives to some of our favourite designer buys. 

Some high fashion brands are even collaborating with high street labels to offer affordable and accessible alternatives to their iconic pieces. The iconic Mugler have just launched their much-awaited Mugler x H&M collaboration with high street label – and if you’re a die hard Mugler fan (guilty) then prepare to obsess over this collection. 

To make your search that little bit easier, we have done the hard yards and searched the internet to find the best dupes on the market in 2023. So read on, and happy shopping!
