I have always been the biggest Chanel fan. From being a little girl obsessed with Paris and the French language, Chanel epitomised everything that I loved. And that still stands, especially now that the brand seems to be going back to its roots and the timeless feel created by Gabrielle Chanel herself. But since I’m not quite at the point of being able to afford the Boy Bag in every colour way, I find myself gravitating to good quality Chanel dupes available on the high-street that are much friendlier on my bank balance.
Chanel Jacket Dupes
Karl Lagerfeld once said: “There are things in fashion that never go out of style: jeans, a white shirt and a Chanel jacket.” The allure of the bouclé tweed jacket endures on today since its humble beginning. Inspired by men’s tweed fishing and hunting jackets, Chanel designed the tweed jacket for women in 1954. She reinvigorated the style to allow women to move freely, contrasting dramatically with the ultra feminine yet constricting outfits of the era.
But of course, the ultimate sign of luxury comes with a heavy price tag. Here are some stunning high street versions that still evoke that polished bouclé tweed vibe.
Chanel Bag Dupes
If you were to spend a small fortune on a bag, most people would probably recommend you do so on the Chanel Classic Handbag. Whether you’re a strictly classic black kind of girl or you like your handbags with a twist and prefer the tweed version in pastel or acid tones, there’s a Chanel Classic Handbag, and its dupe counterpart, to suit everyone.
Chanel Headwear Dupes
This season the brand has designed a range of stunning headwear including tweed baker boy caps, cashmere beanies and even a tweed bucket hat! I’ve picked out the best hat dupes available on the high street right now so you can recreate Chanel’s fall-winter looks without it costing the earth.
Chanel Ballet Flats Dupes
Dupes of the Chanel ballerina flats have dominated stores this year, and given the two-tone style is such an iconic shoe that literally go with anything, I don’t expect this trend to die down anytime soon. That being said, a lot of the best Chanel dupes (including my ASOS sling-backs) are being snapped up quick so I wouldn’t wait around!
Chanel Slingback Dupes
And last but certainly not least, the Chanel slingbacks. A trending shoe year after year, the heeled version of the illustrious Chanel ballerina flats have been recreated for the high-street. I’ve rounded up the best in Chanel slingback dupes below.
