The Best Designer Lookalikes on Amazon

TGIF, BABES. Who’s ready for the weekend? I’m in a #TreatYoSelf mindset FOSHO. Last night, J + I walked to a little ice cream shop near our house for dinner. Ice cream for dinner because we are ADULTS and we can do what we WANT. Ha! But really, sometimes ya just need a little treat yo’self moment to end the week amiright?? But even when ya wanna treat yo’self – ain’t nobody got the money to reaaaaally go hard all of the time. Meaning, designer duds. Today we’re talkin’ designer lookalikes on Amazon specifically.

But first, a disclaimer.

I’ve personally always been a designer lookalike fan. Namely because I lovelovelove the look of designer, but could just never afford it. In high school, my idea of a “designer bag” was hitting up Canal Street in New York City for the best lookalike Louis Vuitton – ha! Now as an adult, I’m SO down for saving up for key designer purchases (hence, hit the goal, get the Gucci). But I fully understand + appreciate wanting to look the part without paying for it, so welcome designer lookalikes on Amazon!

But first, a disclaimer. Not all designer lookalikes are created equal.

As in, some can be illegal. There can be a fine line between a lookalike, or a counterfeit or fake piece. I am def no expert (because I ain’t a lawyer), but from my understanding, the difference is this: A lookalike is just that – it looks like something designer. It might be similar in quality – the same quality leather or suede, etc – and similar in actual build or design. But it’s not calling itself the real deal. It’s not saying, “Hey, I’m Gucci and I’m only $50 instead of $500!” Like…LOL NO. A fake or potentially counterfeit piece is trying to be the designer, typically with the same exact branding, and is calling itself that at just a much lower price. The fine line comes in in how close branding can be before it’s considered copying. There are suuuuuuper strict qualifiers for luxury branding. Tiffany’s, for example, literally owns the color “Tiffany Blue.” Another jewelry company could come out and create similar pieces, and so long as their blue isn’t that same exact shade…they’d probably be legally fine. Shady? Probably. But illegal? Not necessarily.

Similarly, with designer lookalikes, something like a belt buckle being a different size or something being a different color may be enough differentiation. I’ve seen designer lookalikes get flack in the past for “ripping” off of luxury brands. But fashion in general…is a lot of ripping off of other brands and designs. Think about anything that starts trending – how many different super similar variations end up popping up at different price points all over the web that season? It’s kinda cray cray to think about it and not necessarily “fair” for the original designer, but I think part of the picture is just it being how the industry works!

SO. Designer lookalikes on Amazon. I’ve heard that if it’s on Amazon, it supposedly passed certain qualifiers and isn’t considered “bad.” So unless you see someone saying “Gucci bag for $50!“, it’s a legit lookalike and not anything shady. On the left here are the designer lookalikes, and on the right are the real deal so that you can compare and see how I did! 😉 Everything is categorized below by piece (I put them in left-to-right, top-to-bottom order to hopefully be as easy as possible for ya!), with the real deal followed by the lookalike on Amazon, so you can shop whichever you’d prefer!
