Three Designer Dupes You Need In Your Life This #SS16

I have been on the lookout for more fashionable designer dupes to help keep your bank manager nice and content. And thankfully, a lot of the latest pieces to hit the shops are very much in line with designer trends.

The great thing about lookalikes is that you can try them out for less before making a splurge on something super pricey and our edit today has some great bits all in stores now.

  1. Carvela v Penneys

The laser cut out trend is everywhere and footwear hasn’t escaped it. Not ones to wear in the rain, save these for a not so rainy day. The Carvela pair is a blush colour and my pick from Penneys are rather cream. Equally as comfy! Those are my feet modelling the Penneys ones.

2. David Koma v Zara

The off the shoulder trend is inescapable, so I’ve been working out to show off my shoulders. This David Koma top caught my eye on the catwalk and I loved its elegance, but I’m not that flush, so I think I’ll be spending my pennies on the Zara alternative which is under €40.

  1. Current Elliot v New Look

Denim range Current Elliot make really amazing denims that will last a long time, that’s a truth. And with denim being everywhere this season, we might just invest in some. When I found this brilliant dupe from New Look I couldn’t resist. The CE version has a frayed seam, so get out your stitch unpicker and DIY the less expensive style for less.
