One of the first names that comes up when talking about luxury fashion brands is Chanel. It is the first brand that I discovered when I was 11 years old. You see Chanel bags,clothing and accessories on every Instagram pictures, celebrities wearing them, fashion shows using it. It's safe to say that Chanel is everyone in the industry.
Chanel has influenced the world greatly with class, trend and unique vibes that it gives out. Coco Chanel brings revolutionary styles to the fashion world.
Looks like Chanel, it must be Chanel right?! It would be so nice to grab anything that catches your eyes and not worry about the price tags. I decided to find a solution to my problem and I did. I have noticed that River Island had very similar looks to Chanel designs.
Chanel has a tendency to weave through the history of fashion but their styles are so special they manage to add modern twist to the pieces. However, we all own something in our closet that was inspired by Chanel. For example, the little black dress; add some pearls and you've achieved the standard Chanel look in the book.
Always remember that you have to put your own twist to your outfit to make it your own. Designers can only help you get inspired but the rest is up to you!
Those few styles I put out have similar looks and they are all under $200 dollars. If you look close enough, you'll find so many similar pieces that are identical to the designer brands.
Chanel Vs. River Island!
Chanel Vs. Akira!
Chanel Vs. NA-KD!
Brands such as River Island, NA-KD and Akira get their inspiration from fashion shows and trends that big designers set, those trends being the hottest styles of the season, everyone loves and wants them.
I know how frustrating it is to love something so much and not be able to pay for it. This is why I wanted to help my fashionistas to find those unique and affordable styles that look like Chanel, Dior or even Louis. Hope you found what you were looking for 🙂
