Most of us would love a wardrobe overflowing with Gucci, Prada and that Chloé bag but the reality is that for many such designer labels come at a price that means well…starvation? rent arrears? soliciting? Thankfully that’s where designer dupes step in. I’ve uhmmed and ahhed for a long time about the morality of them. Not whether your Ego loafers have a conscious or an opinion on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, but whether it’s okay for high street stores to essentially rip off high-end designers in the name of accessibility. I’m still not 100% on where I stand with that, but I know that I don’t mind spilling yogurt in a New Look bag, whereas if I owned a Gucci it would probably spend 90% of it’s life in a dust jacket, with the remaining 10% saved for cradling, stroking and a cheeky Instagram snap.

Cartier Love bracelet
A tribute to passionate romance, Cartier’s iconic Love bracelet has been gracing the arms of celebs for decades. Kylie Jenner was once pictured with eight on her wrist and Pippa Middleton is also a fan – but as the price range starts at an eye-watering £3,600, us mortals need a much less costly alternative. Kate Spade has answered our prayers with this 12-karat gold plated offering, which sparkles with glass stones and comes in gold and silver.
Kate Spade £40!
Chanel Classic Handbag
Dupe: ASOS Diamond Quilt Cross Body Bag
Starting from £3,550 for a small version, Chanel’s iconic quilted flap bag oozes glamour and is a favourite among celebrity style queens. Echo the look with this faux-leather cross body bag from ASOS, which is complete with a chunky shoulder chain and magnetic clasp closure. The curb chain trim adds a hint of moto edge – totally swoon-worthy.
Valentino Rockstud leather pumps
Dupe: Dune Daenerys Studded High Heel Court Shoes
That you, Valentino? If the likelihood of you owning a pair of the cult-worthy Rockstud pumps (£650) is slim, opt for this achingly similar design from Dune. Unlike the former option this one features a closed back, but we get the same colour way and elegant pointed toe front. A sumptuous leather upper adds to its luxe appeal. Available in sizes 4-8.
House of Fraser, ON SALE NOW £66.99!
Kylie Cosmetics – Bronze Palette
Everyone knows that Kylie Cosmetics The Bronze Palette is amazing, however at a pricey £30 a pallet PLUS post and packing PLUS the likely risk of it always being sold out. I knew there must be another cheaper option. So I found this Primark palette for only £4!
GUCCI DIONYSUS VELVET BAG
I have been in love with this Gucci bag since the first time I saw it displayed in a glass case in Harrord! However no matter how much I want to believe that I can just walk in a buy it. Sadly this is not the case as it costs a casual £695! So I have found this great dupe for only £18!
GUCCI DOUBLE G LEATHER BELT
No dupe page would be complete without the dupe that everyone is talking about. Now unless you have been hinding under a rock somewhere then you would know that this Gucci belt is ALL OVER social media, but like most things its an eye watering £270 for a belt! But this dupe is amazing at only £4! Well done Primark.
GUCCI PRINCETOWN SLIPPER WITH TIGER
As Im sure your starting to notice Gucci is my weak spot. So I have saved the best till last! I have spotted into countless Gucci Stores asking to try these on just for that few moments with them. Yes I know I have a shoe problem! But like everything else Gucci my bank account says “No thank you, your not spending £765 on me.”
So when I came across these dupes I know it was meant to be.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED.
