7 Designer Dupes We’re Coveting Right Now

Stay fresh -not broke- with these runway replicas

When a new international fashion month comes around, it’s exciting to see what’s next! Whether it’s the newest ‘it’ bag or shoe at Milan Fashion week, the latest jacket style from New York’s fashion houses, or the micro trends we’ll dare to try, hundreds of new cult items can pop up on our imaginary wish lists in no time. But designer items are not all that kind on the bank account. Lucky for us, the internet is brimming with dupes inspired by these runway looks so you can still have what she’s wearing – but for less!

A dupe is essentially a product released by a typically mass-market brand, that has a similar style or was inspired by a popular designer item but with a much lower and more accessible price point.

With the 2024-2025 Autumn/Winter fashion shows only finishing up a little over a month ago, dupes usually take a while to reach the high street, however, we’ve found some early and are all under $250. So, stay one step ahead of the pack, add these to cart and wait for the ‘is that designer?’ comments to roll in.

The Denim Skirt

Tie Belt

Swap large buckles for skinnier belts you can tie and make a knot with as styled to perfection at Michael Kors this year. Don’t splash out though, there are plenty of high-street brands offering affordable leather styles. Our tip? Choose soft leather for easy tying as faux or vegan leather can often crack or perish if you tie and bend them too much.

The Fancy Flat

Following on from last year’s satin mule, Prada is sticking with their fancy flat aesthetic with a strappier version for this season. We’ve already found a similar one from Zara you might want to add to cart before everybody else does.

The Cord Pendant

Tom Ford just confirmed that the 90s cord necklace still has a place this season after its debut last year amongst other big-name designers. With affordable varieties now available there is no need to spend big, however, we’ve found the perfect match from local label, Saint Valentine in sterling silver or 18k gold plated- a more sustainable, long-lasting choice.
