I Only Want to Wear Prada and Miu Miu—25 Affordable Alts That Are Just as Strong

Prada and Miu Miu are my mothers. Both brands raised me in this industry and shaped my view of style and elegance as we know it. Each is constantly evolving yet always manages to stay true to the DNA of each Miuccia Prada-led brand. Unfortunately, buying multiple pieces from each collection a year is not in my budget, but that doesn't mean I don't splurge on an It item every now and again. To ensure I am getting the Prada and Miu Miu look without going broke, I turn to some of my favorite affordable retailers for alts that are not too shabby

I have shopped out an assortment of items inspired by these iconic brands that are not only in line with the brand aesthetics from S/S 22 to F/W 23 but are wildly affordable in comparison. Curious about what I mean? Just keep scrolling and you'll get the picture.
