Dupe Deals: Top 16 Best Designer Sneaker Dupes 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

It all began with a pair of Vejas x Madewell star-print leather sneakers. The first time I wore them with a dress I knew there was no turning back. Feeling cute, feminine, AND comfy?! Now, sneakers are a staple piece in my wardrobe, and I wear them at least four times a week. I’ve saved and I’ve splurged on different pairs. And my sneaker obsession has led to today’s list of the best designer sneaker dupes out there.

Have you been eyeing a pair of designer sneakers wondering if you should make the splurge? 90% of the time I encourage investing in quality pieces for longevity in your closet. But sometimes that’s not feasible for the budget or it doesn’t make sense for you if you see yourself wearing it more as a trend piece. Worry not!

From Golden Goose to Balenciaga, Saint Laurent to Gucci, there is a dupe sneaker to be found. And money to be saved!

Scroll down to look through the best designer sneaker dupes and see which pair(s) are your favorite!

5 Pieces to Chic Up Your Travel Style

5 Pieces to Chic Up Your Travel Style

5 Pieces to Chic Up Your Travel Style 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

Last year was a pretty big travel year for me with two trips to London and a family friend’s wedding in Ireland! This year has been a bit more tame with a few amazing trips this side of the pond. But I’ve been jealous watching everyone else’s getaways on Insta this summer! This got me thinking about how much I love airport and travel style (for real…Pinterest board dedicated to inspo here). Usually I opt for my go-to athleisure favorites for traveling. But when I shot this travel look, I started to think how it would be a great option for a more chic approach to travel style. It still has every element of comfort that I look for when I travel – just a little more structured!

Today, I’ll be sharing 5 travel style essentials to be comfortable and still look chic. Make sure to scroll down to find out what they are!

Top 5 Travel Style Essentials:

1. Casual Drape Trench

Are you one of those people that’s always cold? Because I AM, and I think I’d have a panic attack if I went to the airport without a jacket or trench like this! A drapey trench is a very chic, classic alternative to a sweatshirt or oversized cardi. You can also wear it with so much, so style it with your outfits on your trip – less to pack! This trench would be the perfect option. I have my eye on it – it keeps going on sale and I need to get it ASAP!

2. White Leather Sneakers

If you’ve heard me say it once, you’ll hear me say it again: A pair of white leather sneakers are a must-have for your wardrobe in today’s world. Especially for the airport with all of the walking, and I don’t know about you, but I just want a closed toe shoe option when on the plane. And now with pre-check it’s easier to wear sneaks because you don’t have to take your shoes off. (Or opt for a slide-on sneaker for easy removal if you fly without pre-check!) There are so many styles out there; you’re bound to find one that you love and that flatters you!

Sharing some of my favorites below:

3. Stretchy High-Waisted Jeans

There’s nothing I love more for my travel style than a high waist. That tucked in/sucked in feeling is hard to beat! These jeans would be the only ones that I would *ever, ever, ever* fly in because they are so comfy. Jeans can be just as cozy as a legging but formalize a look just a wee bit more!

4. Sleek Backpack OR Structured Leather Bag

I’ve always been one to grab an oversized tote for travel. But mostly traveling in a carry-on this year has really forced me to learn #minimalism. Enter the backpack. I found a backpack by this brand at TJ Maxx and have loved it ever since. It fits SO MUCH and the nylon is easy to wipe off if anything gets on it etc. Just the way it’s made allows for me to fit my must-haves or suitcase overflow into it easily and still stay organized!

On the other hand, a very structured, perhaps smaller leather bag can be a great travel option to house just your essentials you’ll need on the plane: headphones, makeup/toiletries, water, a book? I love a bag that’s small so it can slide under a plane seat easily but still roomy on the inside. Madewell and Cuyana have amazing options at really great price points. I also recommend choosing a pebbled leather option because it’s a bit more durable and stain-resistant than other leather textures!

5. Comfy Button-Down Blouse

Last but not least, there’s definitely a way to wear a silky or button-down blouse to the airport and still be comfortable. Athleta has an incredible line of athleisure clothes that are specifically made for travel and even work! I love this button down; it would be such a breeze to throw on and go. The silk shirt that I’m wearing in this post is from Everlane – very comfy and very affordable! They have so many classically tailored options that are designed with real women in real life in mind. You don’t have to look far for comfort from them – take a look here!

Dainty Gold Jewelry under $100 You Can’t Live Without

Dainty Gold Jewelry under $100 You Can’t Live Without 900 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

It always shocks people that I’ve found so much of my everyday dainty gold jewelry on Amazon for under $100 (not sponsored – I wish! Just have to share!). Since I’m not one to withhold my shopping secrets, I wanted to spill all the details on the best dainty gold jewelry pieces I’ve found. These delicate and classic earrings, rings, and necklaces are perfect for wearing nonstop. This is for the glitz and glam lovers who always need solid basics and for those just looking for an everyday touch of sparkle!

How to Find Affordable Dainty Gold Jewelry on Amazon

Before you start, know the difference between gold-plate, gold-filled, and solid gold

For starters, it’s important to be educated about the descriptions of these pieces. You’ll see gold-filled, gold-plated, or solid gold pieces. Each will make a difference in the price and durability of your purchase. Gold-filled and gold-plated are alloys that blend gold with another base metal such as brass or sterling silver. Gold-filled typically lasts longer than gold-plate and doesn’t tarnish as quickly. Brass tends to break out people’s skin, so I always buy gold-filled with/over sterling silver! Real gold is the real deal that definitely won’t tarnish. You’ll see that the price will increase as the quality of gold increases. I purchase 10K and 14K gold pieces for more affordable everyday pieces. 18K and 24K are really nice but involve a much heftier price tag!

Gold Huggie Hoops and Earrings on Amazon

I’d say that one of my most-asked questions is where I got these gold huggie hoops. They’re 14K gold, $33, and I now own three pairs because they’re so good. I’m sharing some more of my favorite small hoop and delicate everyday earrings below…

These $21 teeny tiny gold ball studs are perfect if you have more than one piercing on each lobe. With three piercings per ear, sometimes other earrings can interfere if I want to wear statement earrings up front. I pop these studs into piercing two and three to have something there but to not distract from the earring in piercing one!

I spent well over $50 on a pair of earrings like these before I discovered this $9 pair! These add an edge to your look and something different with the dangling spike!

A lot of the time I like wearing three hoops on each ear. I have been so impressed with the quality of these pave CZ hoops and have worn them for weeks on end. These black pave hoops just came in, and I haven’t taken them out since! A pair of rainbow pave hoops (and these ear threaders!) are on their way to me, so I can’t wait to wear the white, black, and rainbow hoops all together!

Gold Rings on Amazon

SHOP MY LOOK:

Thin Gold Rings | Dress | Bag

My mom will call me “Ringa” (a play on Ringo, ha!) when I’m loading on #alltherings. I don’t know why, but I have been drawn to rings as long as I can remember! I love simple, dainty gold jewelry when it comes to my rings, too. Always go for the classics so that they’re easy to style and go with everything you wear!

Wear this gold wedding band style ring as an everyday, classic statement.

This rope-textured ring is inspired by a David Yurman version and less than half the price. This would be a great stacking ring if you ordered more than one. Or a great texture for mixing and matching!

I also love wearing whisper-thin gold rings all over my fingers like in the photo above. This $18 version from Amazon is to die for. Click on the seller’s name to find the ring in your size! (I bought mine from Etsy.) Buy a few in your ring finger size and then a few bigger to put on your pointer, thumb, or middle finger!

My pinky ring was custom made for me as a gift, but here is a very similar version for under $65!

Gold Layering Necklaces on Amazon

SHOP MY LOOK:

Blazer | Tee | Jeans | Heart Necklace

Who else can’t get enough of the layered coin necklace look?! I think it’s so chic while also being so cool and on trend. To get the layered look, try to space them out by necklace length. I usually go with a 16 inch, 18 inch, and 20 inch when I’m wearing my layered coin necklaces. This way they won’t be laying right on top of each other!

Here is a $23 coin necklace that would be a great way to start or add to your layering! Then consider adding in an oval shaped option in like this.

As I mentioned, I’m not usually one to go for gold-plated brass pieces, but this necklace is said to be made with high-quality brass that does not cause breakouts. This $12 necklace reminds me of the Missoma version and would be a really cool addition to a layered look!

I’m always one to go for a personalized touch. This initial disc necklace is a must-buy for $8 or this one for $15! I’ve found that shopping for children’s gold jewelry can lead to some major price cuts and steals!

This rosary-style necklace is so cool and makes for a simple statement all on its own!

It’s also always a classic and easy move to just wear a simple, elegant gold chain. I love the open link look of this one. Or this ball chain style could add some texture!

You can never go wrong with something simple with just one pendant like this one!

Here is a dupe of the Tiffany’s Elsa Perretti heart necklace for $75! This would make an amazing Mother’s Day gift.

This gold bar necklace would be amazing on its own or a great option for engraving to personalize it!

Last but not least, I have been loving Amy (Fashion Jackson)’s and Ashley (The Teacher Diva)’s delicate ball chain bracelets. I was thrilled when I found this $10 version on Amazon! I ordered two to stack them.

I hope these affordable, dainty gold jewelry finds add a luxe touch to your everyday look. I always link my jewelry and accessories here or on my LIKEtoKNOW.it profile so that y’all can stay updated!

Wear this Sherpa Denim Jacket Every Weekend

Wear this Sherpa Denim Jacket Every Weekend 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

Happy almost-Friday, lovely ladies! I took a look at this weekend’s forecast and it’s going to be a chilly one for sure. That’s why this cozy, casual sherpa denim jacket outfit would be the perfect option for any weekend plans day or night. It’s so easy to throw on, and you won’t be sacrificing any style for warmth. I’m also willing to bet that you might have some of these staples already in your closet. A striped turtleneck tee? Ripped skinny jeans? I think yes!

The real superstar of the show here is this sherpa denim jacket though. And it might not be in your closet just yet, but it definitely should 😉 I now consider it one of my winter staples when it comes to casual layering. During the spring and fall, I’m always throwing on an oversized jean jacket with dresses or over tees and black jeans. This sherpa version is now my winter replacement! And it’s much easier to style this jacket for a lot of different occasions than you might think. Head over to this board on my Pinterest for more outfit inspo! I’m particularly loving a sherpa denim jacket outfit that includes a leather skirt or trousers and pointy toe pumps.

If you have a sherpa jean jacket, what’s your favorite way to wear it? Let me know over on Instagram and make sure to enter the giveaway on this post (I’m picking the winner on Sunday!).

Designer Dupes on Amazon: The Best of the Best

Designer Dupes on Amazon: The Best of the Best 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

Do y’all get the Amazon carousel ads on Insta and swipe through all of the items?! It gets me every.dang.time whether it’s for clothes, kitchen appliances, or home decor! I just have to see what kind of deals are out there and which brands I haven’t discovered yet. As a result of all that ad swiping and additional digging, I’ve now developed a pretty solid list of, in my opinion, some of the best designer dupes on Amazon. I’ve purchased some of these designer dupes so I can speak to their quality and similarity to the real deal. I’m also an avid reader of product reviews, so you better believe I’ve read those for the items I haven’t purchased to get more insight.

If you’ve been reading Never Without Lipstick for a while, you probably know that my shopping philosophy is to shop smart. Invest in classic, high-quality wardrobe staples and buy trendier items under the $100 price point. All of that to say that I do appreciate investing in real designer items when I know how much I’ll use them and how timeless the style or design is. But there are some designer items that go through a trendy period and it just makes more sense to spend less on a great lookalike item instead. That’s what guided my selection for these designer dupes on Amazon list!

Keep reading to see the deals you can score on amazing Amazon dupes for some of the hottest designer items right now…

The Best Designer Dupes on Amazon:

  • Valentino Rockstud Pump Dupe: Kaitlyn Pan was one of the first brands I came across when searching for designer dupes on Amazon. I was amazed at how many designer dupe shoe options were available from this brand and all of the rave reviews. These pumps are a very good dupe of the real Valentino Rockstud pumps (I owned a pair of the real ones and compared!). They’re genuine leather, made in tons of color options, and the studs are a dead match for the Valentino ones!
  • Valentino Rockstud Sandal Dupe: I’ve got my eye on these dupes for the summer. I’d be wearing them with anything and everything!
  • Stuart Weitzman Lowland Dupes: I mentioned these boots on my Insta story a while back. Another winner from Kaitlyn Pan! Saving over $700 to get an eerily similar pair of boots? Done. Do beware that these OTK boots are pretty fitted through the leg so that they stay up. I’m only able to wear mine with skirts and dresses, not over jeans or leggings. Just something to consider before buying! Kaitlyn Pan also has dupes for the Stuart Weitzman Hiline and Tieland boots.
  • Chloe Susannah Bootie Dupes: These booties are currently on their way to me, so I will immediately update all of you once they arrive. I looked through a lot of different brands offering similar booties, but this pair seemed to be the highest quality based on the reviews. Not to mention the wider range of color selection!
  • Goyard Card Holder Dupe: This card holder has been selling so much on NWL! It’s so convenient to keep all of my cards in one small, easily transported place. I can throw it into any size bag and it never weighs me down like a traditional size wallet did! The Goyard print isn’t hard to replicate especially on such a small item. It’s genuine leather and I’ve had many people think that it was real! It’s always fun to surprise people with the fact that it’s only $20 on Amazon 🙂
  • Hermes Clic-Clic ‘H’ Bracelet Dupe: This is another item that really isn’t hard to replicate and could be mistaken for the real deal so easily. Or if you do have the real version, consider buying this bracelet in the same color. You won’t be devastated if you lose it or it (God forbid) gets stolen when you’re traveling!
  • Chloe Nile Bag Dupe
  • Goyard Tote Dupe: This tote would be perfect for work or travel! Such a throw-everything-in-and-go option. I’d also love to get this clutch in the large size to use as a laptop case!
  • Hermes Oran Sandal Dupe: These sandals in white are also on my spring/summer wishlist. This is one of the best dupes of this sandal that I have seen based on how the “H” looks. This is one of the designer dupes on Amazon I’d recommend adding to your wishlist now! Check back in as we get into spring for more sizes to become available.
  • Celine Square Sunglasses Dupe
  • Gucci Fanny Pack Dupe: This is a great example of what I was talking about above. The Gucci fanny packs are SO cute, but I don’t see any reason to spend upwards of $500 on one! Better to get the same idea for much, much less with this dupe.
  • Gucci Belt Dupe: Make sure to carefully read the sizing before ordering!
  • Celine Belt Bag Dupe
  • Hermes ‘H’ Belt Dupe
  • Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Wallet Dupe
  • Hermes ‘H’ Blanket Dupe: What a classic gorgeous staple for your home! And for MUCH less – I think you’re saving in the thousands here. I’d love it on my couch or at the foot of my bed.

Tips on Buying & Wearing Spanx Faux Leather Leggings:

  • I went with a medium in these just so that I knew I wouldn’t have to do that struggle dance you do to get too-tight leggings on if I’d gone with the small 😉 The fit is very true to size!
  • The length was a bit long in my opinion (I’m 5’7 for reference) and I plan on wearing these leggings with a bunch of ankle height booties. I took mine to the tailor and hemmed them to hit right at my ankle bone!
  • This might be TMI but here we go…I’d definitely make sure to wear seamless undies with these leggings! Anything else will show lines – ah, no!

THIS MONTH’S TOP 10 AMAZON FAVORITES:

  • Fuzzy Pullover: The minute this pullover came in I knew it would be on my forever list of Amazon favorites. It’s so cozy and actually really warm. I’ve slept in it, worn it over my workout clothes, and thrown it on for running errands. I ordered a large but definitely could have gone with a medium as it’s only slightly on the side of too oversized for me. I’ve also washed it a few times now and it hasn’t lost its softness or changed in its fit! The best and coziest $32 I’ve ever spent!

  • Faux Fur Slippers: I’ve seen slippers like these all over Instagram and they looked so dang cute and cozy. They should definitely be on your list of Amazon favorites especially for a perfect gift for you or a gal pal! Everybody needs this $14 pair <3
  • Ribbed T-Shirt (short sleeve & long sleeve): I raved about this tee on my Insta Stories on Friday, and the obsession is still going strong. These tees are the perfect wardrobe staple and they’re both under $20! They’re so easy to tuck in, perfect fall/winter layering pieces
  • Goyard Card Holder Dupe: This came in last week and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality! This is the perfect thing to have to throw into smaller purses or just to carry on the go. It’s a pretty dang good designer dupe for just $20!
  • Gold 8×10 Frames: Did you catch a peek at my newest additions to my apartment decor this weekend on my Insta Stories? If you missed it, you can get a look below! These gold frames were perfect for my teeny gallery wall. They’re great quality, lightweight, and were incredibly easy to hang! I’m obsessed with this little nook of my room now all thanks to these gold glam little Amazon favorites 🙂

  • Hyaluronic Acid Serum: I mentioned this serum in this post, but I just wanted to brag on it again. It’s a clean beauty product that’s high quality and so affordable! I use it as my nighttime moisturizer and sometimes in the mornings depending on my dryness!
  • Waffle Knit Henley Tunic: This tunic is so perfect and comfy for traveling or running errands. I got the medium and it’s the perfectly oversized fit.
  • Stainless Steel Reusable Straws: On the mornings that I make smoothies, I love having these straws to use to take them to go. They’re easy to clean, too!
  • Inflammatone Supplement: My co-worker told me about this supplement and it has been life changing. It’s a completely natural supplement with all natural ingredients that reduce inflammation in your body. It has completely eliminated my bloating. Yeah…you read that correctly. It’s a bit of an indulgence but totally worth it if you struggle with bloating regularly!! I’d recommend that you start with taking two a day and then up it from there just depending on the results.

How to Style Sneakers for Winter

How to Style Sneakers for Winter 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

I never thought I’d be the person that would not only have multiple pairs of sneakers on my wish list at all times but also have so many different pairs in my closet. Sneakers have quickly become some of the most-worn shoes in my closet and now I consider them a wardrobe staple. They’re an especially good go-to shoe in the winter because they make for a nice, comfy break from boots and booties all the time. Boots aren’t always necessarily made for walkin’ ;)…

I’m sharing my tips and tricks I have for styling sneakers for winter outfits below!

4 ESSENTIAL TIPS TO STYLE YOUR SNEAKERS FOR WINTER:

  • If you have an outfit that you’re wanting to wear with boots/booties, I can bet that it’ll look just as cute with a pair of leather sneakers. Always a good choice if you’re going to be doing a lot of walking and want to be comfortable.
  • Pair sneakers with unexpected pieces like dresses or skirts. It makes for such an edgy change!
  • Pick a pair of sneakers in a neutral color so that you can guarantee they’ll pair seamlessly with everything in your closet.
  • Try on multiple styles before purchasing to make sure that the fit is flattering. Since sneakers are flat, some styles can shorten your leg based on the style or the toe shape. I avoid high-top sneakers and prefer low-top, narrower options because it gives the appearance of elongating my leg!

10 Pairs of Cute Winter Boots that Aren’t Over-the-Knee

10 Pairs of Cute Winter Boots that Aren’t Over-the-Knee 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

A week or so ago I posted some questions on my Insta Stories to see what kind of content y’all would want to see for the winter. Some of you asked to see a roundup of cute winter boots that aren’t over-the-knee options. That’s what inspired today’s post because I definitely feel like OTK boots can get a lot of attention in the fall/winter seasons!

I was just at the mall perusing all the options for cute winter boots and I saw so many amazing pairs that weren’t anywhere near OTK.

Scroll down to read about some of the cute winter boots that really caught my eye!

10 PAIRS OF NON-OTK CUTE WINTER BOOTS:

  • Marc Fisher Devin Bootie: My coworker just got these boots and the moment she tried them on I knew I wanted them. They’re a loose fit around the ankle which seems perfect for tucking in jeans and leggings and also for a slimming effect on bare legs.
  • Sam Edelman Caprice Knee-High Boot: I’m still kicking myself for not getting these boots during the Nordstrom sale! You could wear them easily with jeans for everyday or with a dress for a classic winter look. Just waiting for the light cream color to come back in stock!
  • Sam Edelman Olen Boot: Into the Gloss just wrote this article about Gilmore Girls being the epicenter for all things fall beauty. I’d like to take that a step further and say that there’s some pretty solid fall and winter fashion inspo courtesy of Lorelai! She’s always nailing a winter dress look with this style of boot and it slays in my opinion. So sleek and so sharp!
  • Dolce Vita Lela Boot: Every winter season I’m always drawn to a lace-up or combat style boot. I’m not exactly sure how they would look on me (I’m going to try some on to see ;)), but they always look so cool on everybody else! This style of winter boots would make such a statement in veering away from the traditional OTK boot. You could pair them with a skirt or dress to add an edge to a feminine look!

There’s nothing I love more than popping on one of my plaid blazers over an outfit.

They always pull together an outfit and add a fall-ready statement to whatever you’re wearing. I’ve been so obsessed with all of the affordable options for plaid blazers this season and seeing how other people are styling them. It’s really such a versatile piece to have in your closet.

I’m styling one of my newest plaid blazers (and favorite skirt) below. This is now the third blazer I’ve found for under $40 from H&M and it just keeps getting better. I love this plaid one with the camel accents in the pattern as well as the rolled sleeves. It gives it that chic but casual cool look 🙂
