I know—whose goal aesthetic isn’t Chanel? It may seem like a serious stretch at times, but I like to think that when it comes to fashion, you can achieve any look you wish for at any budget. Seriously, all it takes is a little hard work and research, and, lucky for you, I’ve done it all already. Call me crazy, but after seeing how much you guys liked this roundup of brands that are similar to our beloved Reformation, I figured why not challenge myself to do the same kind of thing with another favorite?
I looked for affordable brands that can elevate everyday items such as shirts, sweaters, and skirts as well as ones that are a good source for classic Parisian-inspired items, such as slingbacks, tweed separates, and cardigans. At first, I thought this would be a tough feat, but I ended up with a list of 10 brands—all of which were definitely worthy of sharing. Ahead, see and shop the brands that made the cut.
Storets has a trove of ladylike dresses and sets that perfectly channel that Chanel vibe.
Yes, I know Revolve isn't technically the brand, but the site had so many good options I couldn't simply choose one. LPA, Majorelle, and NBD are especially on-point for getting that expensive look on a budget.
