When it comes to fashion, who doesn’t want to feel a little luxurious? Unfortunately, not all of us have the sort of disposable income that can fill out closets with Fendi and Prada. But shopping high street in no way means you have to sacrifice style and luxurious fabrics. Thankfully we’re able to get the same look for a fraction of the price. 

Fashion expert Natalie Sexton shared four affordable doppelgangers to add to your arsenal. And don’t forget to watch the video clip above to steal her two money-saving high-end inspired beauty products you need to try right now!

Houndstooth blazer

Chanel is the epitome of classic ladylike style. Their iconic tweed jacket is every fashion lover’s coveted piece that we see sported in their street style all over social media. We love mixing these structured jackets to relaxed basics and trendy accessories. This houndstooth blazer is the perfect dupe for the high-end blazer for its versatility. Like a jean jacket, you can wear it with anything. Pair it with a fresh colour palette to dress it up or add it to a neutral outfit to keep it casual.

Pleated jumpsuit

A great jumpsuit is perfect for any occasion, which is why it’s one of our wardrobe staples. This spring, don’t shy away from metallics! They are so flattering and definitely a great step away from the little black dress we often gravitate to.  Layer this piece with a motorcycle jacket to add a little edge or a chic blazer when the weather is cooler. This one from Le Chateau is effortlessly comfortable, with adjustable spaghetti straps to ensure a perfect fit.

Ruched sandals

We started seeing this trend in footwear from high-end designers on the runaways, all over the red carpet and now celebrities are rocking them in their street style. Brands like Fendi and Chloe love this scrunchie-inspired trend but if you’re looking for an affordable option Geox is the way to go. Don’t sacrifice style for comfort and go for these neutral kicks to let the texture of the design stand out. It also makes them more wearable in the future rather than a bold colour and design.

SHOP: Genziana Mid Woman; $185 at Geox

Designer bag

The classic satchel is the perfect piece when you are looking for a versatile and sophisticated signature bag that will stand the test of time. Over the last 10 years, Givenchy’s Antigona bag has become a coveted bag that many celebrities wear in various sizes and colours. We love this dupe from Canadian brand Lambert because it’s actually a three-in-one handbag and backpack. It’s totally multifunctional and weather resistant and can worn in four different ways including as a handbag, a shoulder bag, a backpack and on the shoulder.
