The Designer-Inspired Pieces on Amazon Worth Buying


fashion blogger mia mia mine wearing jogger pants from revolve and a louis vuitton mulit pochette accessories bagAs much as I love investing in classic designer pieces, it isn’t always realistic, especially in times like this where there seems to be a lot of uncertainty. Lucky for us, there are so many budget-friendly pieces that allow you to get a certain “designer look” for a fraction of the price. You guys are always asking me to share more affordable pieces, so I decided to pore through Amazon and round up the best designer-inspired pieces you can score now. I picked the items that I felt looked similar but were not an exact copy of the original designs with a fake logo. Whether you’re looking to save a little or simply can’t justify a splurge, you’ll hardly be able to tell the difference. Keep scrolling for my favorite designer dupes.

1. The Pouch Bag

Bottega Veneta The Pouch Bag is no doubt one of my favorite designer pieces, especially in the “Mist” color (pictured above). This bag comes with a hefty price tag and can be hard to justify especially if you’re not yet convinced it’s a classic. In that case, this look-a-like might be a better option. I like that it’s made from real leather and is just as voluminous as the real deal.

I always get so many questions about my Celine Edge sunglasses, which are completely sold out now. Above, I linked a similar pair by Saint Laurent, but if you’re looking for something more affordable, this dupe on Amazon is less than $15. The flat-edge top is on par with my Celine’s too.

Another handbag favorite is the Chloe Faye. I like that the small size (here) works with both casual and dressier outfits. It’s also roomy enough to fit your essentials. This bag on Amazon might be a dupe but the quality goes beyond the affordable price tag as it’s also constructed of real suede and leather.

I love the iconic worn-in look of the Golden Goose Superstars Sneakers! I’m much less concerned about getting them dirty when I wear them out – and I like that they have an edgy vibe to them. However, I have to admit that they are expensive. I found these dupes just two months ago, which have the same understated, distressed look.

It’s no surprise that Louis Vuitton sits at the top of my favorite designers list as I own multiple LV products, including handbags and travel accessories. If you want the same luxurious look for less, this cosmetic case is it.

As far as clean white sneakers go, I really adore my Gucci’s. The blue and red stripe design on this Amazon pair looks just like the original Gucci New Ace Sneakers (here).

With summer around the corner and stay-at-home orders lifting soon, I can’t wait to wear my Hermes sandals. The simple, timeless design goes with so many outfits whether you’re wearing denim or a sun dress. This look-a-like pair comes in black and white – and gives you the same Hermes look for significantly less.

The Cult Gaia Ark Clutch has been a favorite among influencers for years now. While you can get the bag on sale for just under $100 at Shopbop right now, Amazon also has a similar bag for less than $40 (here).

I rarely wear flats, but when I do, it’s probably these Chanel espadrilles. They just make any casual outfit look more chic and are a great way to dress down dresses too. This pair of espadrilles on Amazon feature a black and beige design that can almost pass for the Chanel’s.

One of my latest home splurges was the Hermes Avalon blanket. The heritage design was just perfect for my home’s aesthetic, which I like to think of as a mix of French country and modern design. I later spotted this Amazon dupe that’s also made from wool and cashmere for under $75!
