High end to high street: Cheaper alternatives for influencer fashion
When it comes to fashion, influencers just seem to constantly get it right. And while we want to keep up with them and be on top of all the latest fashion trends – it’s hard to follow their stylish endeavours without practically throwing our wallets out the window. We dream of having an endless parade of Ralph Lauren and Gucci at our beck and call, but the reality is – our credit card limits just don’t allow it.
So we’re here to save your bank accounts with cheaper options to our favourite influencer pieces (with items we think results in looks that are just as classy…)
Influencer: Nicole Warne
What they’re wearing: Jason Wu Satin Wrap Dress
High street look for less: Zaful Long Sleeve Wrap Mini Satin Dress
Why we love it: Gary Pepper Girl’s satin wrap dress just screams Crazy Rich Asians and we absolutely adore it. We’ve found a $US23.40 alternative at Zaful so we can join the CRA cult.
Influencer: Blair Eadie
What they’re wearing: Carolina Herrera Stripe Skirt
High street look for less: Zara Striped Midi Skirt with Belt
Why we love it: Blair Eadie’s iconic patterned skirt collection will always draw our eyes and inspire us to colour our closet – which is more easily done when you’re talking about a $US20.20 Striped Midi Skirt from Zara as opposed to a more high end version.
What they’re wearing: Unreal Fur Furever Coat
High street look for less: H&M Faux Fur Coat
Why we love it: Being glamorous is hard, especially when you have to damage your pockets with a $US400+ fur coat that you, ahem, need. So instead, cast your eyes over to H&M (our constant saviour) for almost exactly the same piece at US$72.50.
Influencer: Gala Gonzalez
What they’re wearing: Ralph Lauren Maxi Dress with Split
High street look for less: Tobi Cherish Me Ivory Plunging Maxi Dress
Why we love it: Well, why wouldn’t we? It’s beautiful, elegant and sexy all in one item. And the best part, we can get all of that at just $US101 on Tobi.
Influencer: Olivia Palermo
What they’re wearing: Victoria Beckham Wool Blazer
High street look for less: ASOS Design Red Suit Blazer
Why we love it: Olivia Palermo stunned us at the fashion awards in a rich red suit by Victoria Beckham. We’ve found a way to wow our friends in the same way at just $US56.50 with the help of ASOS. Looking rich has never been cheaper.
