Inspired Designer Looks Found on Amazon

Have you ever heard the saying about having champagne taste but on a beer budget? Well, that’s me! While I can appreciate the finer things in life, I also live for designer-inspired items at a good deal, and I know that many of you probably feel the same way! These days, there are inspired looks for almost every designer item that looks pretty darn close to the real thing. But it can be hard to find them! I went down the rabbit hole so you don’t have to and am sharing the most common affordable designer inspired looks for brands like Louis Vuitton, David Yurman, and more I found on Amazon (plus a few from Walmart!)

Shop all of these in the boutique at the end of the post!

My Favorite Designer Looks for Less

The Loulou Bag by YSL

If you love the quilted Loulou bag by YSL but don’t want to spend over $3,000 on a new handbag, then you will absolutely love this one I found on Amazon. It has the same gorgeous quilted texture and comes in the same neutral shade so that you can wear it with absolutely any outfit!

Burberry Poncho

I love wearing ponchos over long sleeves and turtleneck tops in the winter! They are a great way to add a little warmth without dragging around a big bulky coat. Burberry is well known for their designer ponchos in their famous plaid, but I love that you can get the look for less with this affordable version!

Bottega Tear Drop Earrings

You gurls have seen me share these stunning tear drop earrings before, but did you know they are actually inspired by a pair by Bottega? I don’t know about you ladies, but I’d much rather spend $14 on a pair of earrings than $800+. I’m pretty sure my hubby agrees, LOL!

Prada Sunglasses

I don’t mind splurging on a good pair of sunglasses like these ones from Prada from time to time because if you take good care of them, you can wear them for years and years. Even if you love designer sunglasses, I suggest grabbing a great pair of cheapies for the beach or traveling. This pair from Amazon looks so similar to the real thing, and you get TWO pairs for $16!

The Tote Bag by Marc Jacobs

I absolutely love The Tote Bag by Marc Jacobs, but I can’t imagine paying full price when you can grab this nearly identical version for under $30! It comes in ten different colors, and you could fit so much in here, like an umbrella, laptop, tablet, extra cosmetics, and more.

Mach & Mach

These Satin Bow shoes are making their rounds right now and look similar to these Mach & Mach Double Bow Silk Satin Pumps! If you have a small $1,095, then splurge for the original. But, if you prefer not to break the bank, these are great shoes that you can wear for the upcoming holiday season.

David Yurman Inspired Jewelry

Known for their signature mixed metal jewelry, David Yurman is a timeless brand that you’ll see people wearing again and again. You might have seen their cable bracelets that typically cost around $600, or even own one. I’ve found similar ones that you’ll love just as much. In addition, I’ve linked more finds from Amazon for a fraction of the price compared to theirs, which can cost upwards into the thousands.

Gucci Inspired Mules and Belts

The mule trend has really become big over the last year, and a large part of that is thanks to these Gucci inspired loafers, especially the fur version. The other Gucci inspired item that has grown popular is the belt. The one I found has two circles instead of the two interlocking Gs.

Louis Vuitton Inspired Bags

I’m sure you’ve seen the checkered bags or the famous XL pattern by Louis Vuitton. While the one on the left has a different pattern, the bags I found definitely look inspired by the brand. I linked a few others that are from Walmart as well that are under $50!!

Golden Goose Inspired Shoes

Golden Goose shoes really became well-known a few years ago when the sneaker trend started up. I laugh because you used to see a lot of jokes going around about how people would pay $500+ for a scuffed-up pair of sneakers. There were even tutorials about how to make your sneakers look like Golden Goose. But these haven’t gone away yet! The good news is I found a pair that looks similar for only $40.

Tennis Bracelet

Now this one isn’t made of diamonds, but it sure looks that way! I love that you can get the same look for only $15 without trying to justify such a large purchase. Plus, you won’t feel bad if you lose it!

Chanel Bags & Slingback Heels Inspired Looks

Chanel is an iconic brand known for its classic quilted and tweed bags and signature CC logo. I’ve heard jokes that it’s better to invest in a Chanel bag than the stock market, as they only keep raising the prices of the products! Haha! But the bags I linked and this pair of heels are inspired versions if the real things are out of your budget, and they look amazing.

  29. Deb Dopson says:

    I look forward to reading your blog every day with my morning coffee!

  30. Summer H. says:

    You and your daughter are a lovely pair! My daughter and I are the same kind of opposite – she’s 5’11”, but blonde and blue eyed, while I’m brunette and 5’6″ with brown eyes. I love every one of your champagne taste on a beer budget picks today!

  31. Thanks so much for such great options and budget friendly!

  32. Thanks so much for finding these wonderful inspired items!! Lol, my Amazon cart is full.

  33. Tanya – I have to give you tons of credit for doing the “shopping” for us….this had to take hours to come up with “look-a-likes.” I’m always curious as to whether the “gold” will wear off the jewelry and if the “leather” looks like plastic but the remarks made by the purchasers are very valuable. Good choices and I thank you for doing the tremendous amount of work.

  34. I’m delighted with your these exclusive items-easy shopping for ME to keep, or gifting! Thank you!

  35. I’m 5’6″ and my kids make me feel short, too. She’s 5’10”, and my boys are just under 6′. I’m the shorty of the house. We laugh because my girl didn’t really look like me until she was a teenager. The older she gets, the more of my twin she becomes (in a lot of ways!). I have a cousin whose daughter lives in another state that I RARELY see. They’ve always said she acts just like me. Genetics!

  36. kim goldston fleshner says:

    Your daughter is beautiful! I have two that are taller than me as well. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I think she is beautiful too!

  37. Wow, the similar items look so close. Love the Amazon prices. Great ideas for Christmas gifts.

  38. I have expensive taste too but I have to really love something before I am willing to spend more than I normally would. I have a tendency to change my mind and end up wasting money. I’d be a millionaire if I could have back the money I’ve wasted on clothes and shoes. All these are great ideas. I added the earrings to my list.

  39. This is a GREAT post!! Thank you! Your daughter is beautiful. 🙂

  40. I can splurge on a good classic purse, shoes or jewelry sometimes, but for more trendy things I love the look-a-likes! These are great choices!

  41. I love the photo of you and your daughter- gorgeous girls!
    I want All of these items you showed on this post. I’ve had my eye on the Yurman items forever.

  42. All wonderful ideas Tania! My favorite has to be the “Burberry” poncho! Do you know if it has armholes or sleeve-like cutouts for one’s arms? Hard to tell without seeing it on a person. If it does, I would buy it! Not a fan of the ponchos that are more like wraps—they fall off me in restaurants, etc.

    1. Katie, I watched the video of the poncho, and it looks like a wrap.

  43. Thank you for all the similar items. They look great and the price point is perfect. Love the 2 sunglasses.

  44. Pat Ferguson says:

    Great post! Love the look alikes!

  45. Such great ideas!
    Boy, my eyes are opened as far as designer prices. I am too practical when the other options look the same. My favorites are the tote bag and the tennis bracelet.

  46. Ann Pavlicek says:

    I love the David Yurman similar items. Thanks for sharing the more affordable items. It justifies me adding more to my closet and jewelry box. Thank you!

    Next, I’m looking for some winter white slacks that are casual.

  47. Opening my email this morning and seeing the picture of you and your daughter my first thought was how beautiful she is and tall.
    I was checking out the similar Prada sunglasses on Amazon and love the ability to virtually try them on.
    Thanks for great finds!

  48. The poncho is really nice, & nice family.

  49. SUPER list right here! Thanks for going down that rabbit hole! 🐇😜

  50. Mary Kinard says:

    Love the looks for less posts! I am always looking for a bargain!

  51. Oh, my! All of these looks are fabulous! Thanks, Tania!

  52. Wow! Great job of showing designer vs much more affordable. Thanks for sharing.

  53. These are great!!! Thanks!!

  54. Amazing looks for less. So very similar. Thanx for this post.
