I’ve talked previously about my love for the brand Self Portrait and today I’m sharing another dupe I discovered thanks to Fashion Mumblr. The previous dupes I shared were from Blue Vanilla.
This one is from New Look via ASOS and it’s the perfect blue stripe shirt with the cold shoulder detail on one side and no shoulder on the other. The structure is great for the price, it’s obviously not as high quality as the Self Portrait one but at £19.99, what can you expect. The frill detail adds some femininity, shape and volume.
The shirt is attention grabbing on it’s own so you wouldn’t want anything fussy on the bottom half.
It’s perfect paired with jeans and heels for a day to day look that is still smart and looks put together. It also looks great with sneakers for a more casual and effortless style.
Dupes are a great way to find out if you like or suit a particular style or piece before buying the real one. It lets you trial it and see if the shape suits your figure or if the cut is flattering etc and avoids you spending a lot of money on something you might find actually doesn’t work well for you. I know for sure Self Portrait styles suit me and when I have a special occasion I will invest in one of their pieces and cherish as that’s what I do.
