Edited to include beautiful designer dupe dresses under $200!
Update: My 2021 designer dupes edit is now live – see the post here! The thrill is in the hunt for me when it comes to shopping and finding the perfect dress to add to my growing collection. I spend countless hours searching for high-quality designer dresses at great prices that work with my military family budget, since I know I’ll have them forever. However, sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to devote to tracking down deals like this, and if/when they do pop up, they don’t last long! Another great approach to having a “designer” wardrobe is to search for dupes. Dupes are items that look very similar to designer but at a fraction of the cost – not to be confused with knock-offs which are cheap copies passed off as the actual designer item. Similarly, this is a cost effective way to sort of try out a designer style before making the investment, if you feel that piece will get tons of wear for years to come.
I’ve researched a few of my favorite designer dupes and rounded them up here, and just to see how closely they resemble their designer inspiration, I’ve placed them side by side with price comparisons. Click the links below each item to shop these great designer dupes!
