Designer Vs High Street - Can You Tell?

3 months ago

So most ladies love to browse the designer options, but often we're then hunting for a high street equivalent (so that we can still make rent, obvs). So, just for fun I thought I'd find some juicy designer pieces and then find you guys a high street alternative to prove IT CAN BE DONE!

All White & Lace


$2,785 vs $71

The price diffference between these 2 outfits is unreal. And, I actually love them both.

The designer look consists of Givenchy and Ralph Lauren glam, but the Topshop and H&M alternative truly stands its ground. I love these looks for a chic, smart-casual event or even a dressy lunch with the girls. Pair with nude shoes for the perfect finish.

Statement Jumpsuit


$4,390 vs $129

Every girl needs a jumpsuit in their wardrobe. Whether you opt for a designer one like this Valentino or a more affordable one, like this option from Tommy Hilfiger, the fit is the most important thing. I love that both of these pull you in on the waist and the necklines on both are super flattering.

Girly Girl


$1,616 vs $89

Imagine a day at the races or a glam garden party and these looks are winners. I'd usually invest in a more expensive shoe because, as someone who tries not to wear heels all that much, they are usually more comfortable. However, you certainly cannot complain when it comes to these Nine West beauts.

H2T Weekend Vibes


$2,044 vs $170

This is pretty much my go-to look for the weekend. Casual, usually ripped boyfriend jeans with a silk cami (just so easy) and some sort of statement mule. I'm loving both of these prints just as equally. Finished with a striped blazer, it's chic, simple and polished.

The main points to look for when creating this look from the high street:
- Make sure the blazer isn't sheer. Blazers that show the pocket and seam details through the fabric give away the price tag.

- Try on as many jeans as it takes to get the perfect fit or you'll just keep buying more. High-waist, loose on the lower derriere and as loose as you like on the thigh.

- Opt for flats with just a slight heel shape to the sole. Completely flat mules show a lack of design flair, which points to a cheap price tag.

Eveningwear


$3,849 vs $112

No matter where you're going or what you're doing, you can find the perfect look at a lower price if you just do the research and put a little extra time in. Even when it comes to eveningwear, if you're only going to wear it once, do you really want to spend a whole months pay cheque?

I love this Oscar De La Renta, but with sexy shoes, a tiny clutch and a statement earring, this Vince Camuto will still have you turning heads.

Accessory Essentials


$7,098 vs $28

So, we all know gold is huge RN. And luckily for us, there are masses of stunning high street gold jewellery that creates the look without breaking the bank. Even if you're not a huge fan of costume jewellery, simple items like statement hoops earrings and gold chains can be picked up at a snip of the price and even if they only last for one season, they'll be worth it. Plus, it gives you the excuse to chop and change for every outfit!
