Calling all gals on a budget! Have you been swooning over gorgeous Free People pieces, but you just can’t bring yourself to drop huge chunks of change to keep up with the trends?
Don’t get me wrong, I love Free People and would love to be able to splurge on their quality pieces. But that is just not my reality. Just like many of you, I need to stretch my dollar further than that. Instead of missing out, I went on the hunt for things that will allow me to get the same look for less money. Luckily, I found amazing dupes! Even better, I found them all from Target!
If you don’t know a “dupe” is an affordable look alike. The term “dupe” was popularized by the beauty community, but it can apply to anything that is a cheaper version of a similar product.
Target has been crushing the affordable style game this season! Whether it is the Opalhouse line duping Anthropologie, the Hunter X Target collection or these Free People look-alikes Target is sure to keep all you ladies “balling on a budget”.
Some items I’m about to share are exact style dupes and others are similar but may be slightly off in either color or shape. I’m confident they will all give you the same look for less.
Without further ado, let’s get into the five dupes!
I see all kinds of fashion bloggers posting outfit of the day’s in these gorgeous Free People flats. So I was so incredibly excited when I saw that Target had an affordable option!
Out of all the dupes I have to share with you, these are the most spot on to the original. Though worth mentioning, Free People’s version is genuine leather and currently is offered in 9 colors. So if you’re looking for a pair of shoes that will hold up, these certainly don’t have a reputation for no reason.
The Universal Thread version is offered in an “Ivory” and “Cognac” color. I’ve been lusting over these shoes and I am impatiently waiting for a restock. If they are in your size, R-U-N! You just can’t beat saving $165!
Hats off to Target for allowing us affordable babes to channel our inner fashion blogger in these cutout booties.
This pair of wrap sandals is the second similarity I found in the Universal Thread line from Target. Even though they aren’t a perfect match to the first pair of shoes you can still get the same look with the cheaper version and save $58.01!
A strappy pair of black sandals is such a basic spring essential! Pair them up with a cute sundress or a simple tank and denim jeans. Effortless!
These metallic bow sandals are another spot on dupe! This pair of shoes combines two of the hottest trends right now: metallics and bows!
Such a fun statement shoe for the spring and summer.
Another super fun spring trend is statement earrings. These fun earrings will add such a great pop of color to any basic outfit.
I love that the New Day earrings allow you to achieve the trend for just $10. That way if you aren’t feeling it, you don’t have to regret forking over all your hard earned cash!
Straw bags are having their moment! All the stores are selling them, and all the influencers are carrying them.
Not only can you carry one of these fun totes to the beach but adding one of these fun bags will give a spring flare to any outfit.
Just for fun, I added up the total if you were to buy all five items from each store. The Free People total was $500 exact! And drumroll please… the Target total was $110.95! You could literally buy all five of these items from Target and still not spend as much as you would on the Free People Royale Flats alone.
I hope you guys loved this post today as much as I loved creating it! As you know, I love to shop for less. That is why I love sharing with you guys ideas on how you can still dress cute and trendy while maintaining your budget.
