When you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe with new items, whether at the start of a new season, getting ready for a new job, or packing for a vacation, you usually start by looking around for inspiration. Inspiration can be found from your favorite influencers on Instagram or TikTok, searching fashion trends on Pinterest, reading a celebrity website, or even browsing clothing retailers’ websites. No matter where you look, there’s so much fashion inspiration around.

While looking for fashion inspiration you’ve inevitably come across some items that you’d love to add to your closet, but they turn out to be completely out of your budget. We know how disappointing that can feel. That’s why we’re always looking for items that have the same look for less money for popular, classic, or on-trend coastal fashion. That way, you can still have the same style of an item you like without having to spend more than you can afford to.

Items we’ve found that have a designer look for less money can coincidentally look similar to a more expensive or designer item, or they’re more purposefully made as “designer inspired” items, which are also commonly referred to as “dupes” or “designer dupes.” You might also see them referred to as “splurge or save” or “same look for less money.”

If you really love a more expensive or designer item and can afford to get it, you’ll most likely still want the designer item even if a dupe is available. For those who can’t afford the designer item whether or not a dupe is available, if you love the look or style of an item that’s out of your budget, you can achieve a similar look to those items for a more affordable price with these designer dupes.

As we browse dozens of retailers’ websites regularly looking for the best new trends and classic pieces, we inevitably come across fashion items that will pass as designer dupes, or at least have some of their same qualities. Some of these fashion dupes are so similar to the original item that it can be hard for someone to know it’s actually a dupe. Other items are more obvious that they’re not the original, but will still give your outfit the same look and feel as they share similar qualities. 

As we find these fashion designer dupes we add them to this page, so make sure to bookmark this page or save it on Pinterest so you can check back for our newest designer inspired dupes!

Below is a collection of the best coastal fashion dupes we’ve come across. These items can go out of stock quickly, especially after they’ve been shared on social media, so grab something if you love it while it’s still in stock! Stock changes frequently, so we can’t promise anything is in stock as you’re reading about it here, but we check the stock occasionally and try to keep this page updated in addition to adding new dupes as we find them. Additionally, prices are accurate as of the time of posting, but can go up or down at any time.

The items we keep a lookout for that might be listed below are related to beach lifestyle and coastal fashion, including clothing like dresses, tops, jeans, and sweaters, as well as coastal accessories, including bags, belts, headbands, and jewelry, as well as shoes like sandals, sneakers, and flats. The items we look for are a coastal, classic, or preppy style, like something you’d see someone wearing in a seaside town.

This article is about coastal fashion items that have the same look for less money than designer items.

This article was about coastal fashion that looks similar to more expensive designer fashion but is actually more affordable.

If you love a style of clothing, shoes, or accessories, but don’t have the budget for a designer price tag, you can find a similar or same look for less money.

Many more affordable items have similar qualities to more expensive items, so even if you can’t afford the designer version, you can achieve a similar look with a price you feel comfortable with. By adding in your own accessories and outfit styling you can dress your outfit up or down.

Something to keep in mind when shopping for designer-inspired items is that the designer items are usually made from the highest quality materials, with skilled workmanship, in comparison to designer inspired items, which are likely to sacrifice quality and workmanship, which is what enables these items to have a lower price point. Keeping in mind that dupes are in looks only, and not necessarily quality, is important so that you aren’t disappointed. However, that’s a generalization, and some dupes can be of surprisingly good quality and last for many, many years.
