Struggling to pay for those pricey shoes from Prada? Me too. Sometimes it’s better to take the ideas from the designers and find those items in high street stores for a tenth of the price. Here are some designer to high street items for this upcoming summer I have found.
Shoes, shoes are a must have. The new trend has got to be open toe ankle boot heels. These Prada heels are a killer at £490! I found some substantially cheaper ones from Public Desire for just £29.99!
Next up is a leather number – well in terms of high street (faux leather). I found a pair of leather runner type shorts from the Acne studios collection which were a huge £550! They are of course real leather. The high street comparison is a pair of faux leather shorts from Boohoo which were a bargain at £12!
Up next is an essential summer piece which you need to have in your wardrobe. Lace up tops are looking big for this year. I found a neat lace up playsuit from Roberto Cavalli which costs a whopping £905. As an alternative: the black lace up playsuit from Asos which costs you a reasonable £25. This is n essential for summer holidays!
Next, I have a Kim Kardashian inspired outfit – a roll neck bodycon. The designer version of this dress is from Whistles and costs you £60 – your thinking not too bad… Right! But what if I told you that you can have a very similar dress for a quarter of the price? The high street version is from Boohoo and costs £15!
Finally, I have a number which featured in my “Spring/Summer 15 trends” post. The Balenciaga crepe jacket. I love this jacket as it is so versatile! However it’s pricey: £1,840. It seemed so out of reach but then I found a Zara version which was almost identical! The high street jacket costing £49.99!
That’s it! A few of my favourite designer pieces which have similar versions for a fraction of the price!
Shopping top tip:
Buy a couple of statement items from your favourite designer brand but buy the rest from the high street – you will save a tonne of money!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
