If you’re desperate for a pair of Chanel shoes but don’t have £655 lying around, we’re here to help.
While nothing beats the designer’s iconic slingbacks, for many of us it’s just not realistic to spend hundreds on one pair of shoes.
Thank God for dupes! Fortunately the high street and indie brands have catered for us, recreating Chanel’s slingbacks with shoes inspired by their silhouette and details. Some brands nail the look exactly — down to the classic colour — while others offer a more modern take.
Whichever style you fancy, you don’t need to look particularly far either, as high street heroes ASOS, Dune, LK Bennett and many more have lookalike shoes available on a beer budget.
The two-tone Chanel slingbacks are both classic and flattering, and can be worn with just about anything, whether that’s a simple oversized white shirt and cycling shorts, a polka dot dress or a pair of jeans.
Former magazine Editor and current Director of Fashion Partnerships at Instagram Eva Chen has been known to wear Chanel slingbacks with almost every outfit, while one of our favourite fashion girls Alexa Chung favours the style too.
We know you don’t need any more convincing, so here are 10 pairs of shoes that look so much like the Chanel slingbacks — minus the price tag.
From just £14, these won’t break the bank but they’ll look chic and expensive anyway.
