As the leaves start to change and pumpkin spice everything makes a comeback, it’s time to refresh your wardrobe without breaking the bank. We’re spilling the tea on five fall fashion dupes that’ll have you looking chic without emptying your wallet. So, whether you’re a budget-conscious trendsetter or just looking to save a little cash, we’ve got you covered. Let’s dive into some stylish steals for the season!
1. The Slipper That Is Better Than The Real Deal
Item: Women’s Amira Suede Clog Slippers
A dupe for the: Ugg Tasman Slippers
Colors available: Black, cherry red, metallic gold, brown, chestnut, and pink
Size range: Women’s sizes 5 through 12
When the Ugg Tasman gained popularity last fall and winter, I was hesitant to jump on board. I mean, I hadn’t worn any kind of Ugg shoe since middle school. With more practical winter shoe options, what is so great about a slipper?
Fast forward to this year, and demand for the Ugg Tasman still hasn’t waned. With a case of severe FOMO, I ran to Target and grabbed a pair of the Amira Suede Clog Slippers.
Let me say that I totally get it now.
These shoes are EXTREMELY cozy. Sure, they’re “slippers,” but the soles are thick and durable enough to wear indoors and outdoors. They look cute with anything from leggings to baggy jeans and a sweater. Compared to the Ugg Tasman’s lofty $110 price tag, the Amira slippers are a steal. 10/10.
2. The Wear Everywhere Shacket
Item: Yanekop Women’s Waffle Knit Shacket
A dupe for the: Aerie LumberJane Waffle Shirt
Colors available: Black, beige, army green, brown, and more
Size range: Small through 1X
Tired of stealing your significant other’s oversized-yet-put-together shirts? A waffle-knit shacket is the solution. A mix between a shirt and jacket, a “shacket” is the perfect combination of lightweight, but still cozy and warm.
When I say that shackets are a “wear everywhere” situation, I mean it. Need a cozy shirt to toss on while sitting around a bonfire? Shacket. Want to look cute while running errands? Shacket. Need a quick shirt to throw on after the gym? Of course, a shacket!
A shacket is a cold-weather essential, and Yanekop’s dupe of Aerie’s LumberJane Waffle Shirt delivers. At almost half the price, Yanekop offers 23 different cozy color options to choose from. Now time for the hard part: which hue are you choosing?
3. The Hottest Fall Handbag
Item: Drew Bone Small Recycled Vegan Top Handle Bag
A dupe for the: Bottega Veneta Jodie bag
Colors available: Bone, taupe, black, espresso, and more
When BIA said, “Fendi on my body, but my feet is in Bottega,” I did not relate. But with this Bottega dupe from Melie Bianco, I can live in my Bottega fantasy all season long. Compared to Bottega’s Jodie $2,650, Melie Bianco’s Drew bag is a no-brainer. Can you picture this bag dressed up on a chic night out? Gorgeous.
4. The Slip-On Clog I Can’t Get Enough Of
Item: Women’s Betsy Clog Mule Flats
A dupe for the: Birkenstock Boston
Colors available: Black, cognac, taupe
Size range: Women’s sizes 6 through 11
Love ’em or hate ’em, the clog is here to stay. Target’s Betsy Clog is an excellent dupe for the Birkenstock Boston if you want to jump (back) on the clog trend. Paired with anything from wide-leg jeans to a cozy pair of sweatpants, clogs are the go-to shoe I can’t stop wearing this season.
5. The Go-To Cozy Half-Zip
Item: LASLULU Women’s Hoodie Fleece Lined Collar Pullover
A dupe for the: Lululemon Scuba Hoodie
Colors available: Caramel, khaki, black, light apricot, and more
Size range: Small through 2X
If we’re being honest with ourselves, don’t we all live in athleisure half of the cold weather season, anyway? Whether you need a good athletic basic or are ready to participate in TikTok’s latest “Pilates princess” aesthetic, LASLULU’s scuba hoodie dupe is a great option.
With an average rating of 4.6 stars, the LASLULU hoodie’s zipper closure and thumbholes are strikingly similar to Lululemeon’s signature hoodie. One reviewer even mentioned, “I’m shocked by the quality,” and, “I’m keeping this. It’s a winner.”
