The Affordable Fashion Dupes Trending On TikTok

Dupes are our new favorite thing, and TikTok is the best place to find all the good stuff. As per CNBC, TikTokers are becoming increasingly obsessed with finding next-best-thing products for a fraction of the price, whether finding perfect lookalike Lululemon leggings, or chunky platforms that give off Gucci vibes. At this point, even iconic scents are getting duped: TikTokers can't stop comparing Maison Francis Kurkdjian's iconic $325 Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum to Ariana Grande's sweet-but-refreshing $40 Cloud Perfume. Beauty buys are one of the largest TikTok dupe categories, with users marveling at Maybelline's Cheek Heat Blush in comparison to Glossier's pricier Cloud Paint (via Teen Vogue), but the fashion lookalike finds are just as good — or better.

As we try to calm down over the eerie similarities between Nivea's $7.99 Face and Body Cream and La Mer's $350 Moisturizing Cream (via Teen Vogue), you can find us looking up seriously unbelievable dupes for clothes, shoes, and accessories. As per StyleCaster, break-the-bank luxury buys are becoming a thing of the past, with a generation of shoppers preferring to hunt for lookalikes and compare their finds. Instead of opting for overpriced designer goods, these "budget-friendly alternatives to fancy products" will get you the look for less without breaking the bank.

Take one TikToker, who reviewed seven different Lululemon legging dupe brands in a recent video, or another user who loves finding Pinterest-inspired designer lookalikes from Amazon and SHEIN. Curious? Here are the best fashion dupes trending on TikTok right now.

These dupes are everyday basics

With many of us spending much more time at home than usual, it's no wonder leggings, sports bras, and comfy tees are becoming our go-to's, and who isn't at least a bit curious about Lululemon's iconic pieces? After all, the brand is known for making high-quality activewear that skims and highlights curves in the best way possible. Even though we love the style and fit of the brand's Align Tank Top, $58 is just a bit steep. That's where the $22.99 Lemedy Sports Bra comes in: A nearly-identical Lululemon dupe, this Amazon find will take you from Pilates classes to work-from-home afternoons to even date night. This TikToker says it's "very comfortable," and definitely "worth the money." Win!

Livingly uncovered a perfect dupe for Celine's iconic Edge Sunglasses, a Hailey Bieber-fave that will now run you at up to $2,000 on eBay. Not to fret — if you love the look, these TikTok-approved $13.98 Feisedy Vintage Square Cat Eye Sunglasses are nearly identical, and will leave everyone wondering if they're actually the legendary Celine's. More than 13,000 Amazon reviewers say these sunglasses are "durable," "sturdy," and "edgy," while the polycarbonate frame and UV protection means they offer bang for your buck, too.

And if you're on the market for denim, may we point you to these Princess Polly Asymmetric Straight Leg Jeans? A $74 dupe for Agolde's $188 Criss Cross Upsized Jeans seen on countless influencers (via Stylecaster), we're obsessed with this trendy-yet-affordable pair.

TikTok-approved lookalikes that are fun

Now we have a few dupes that are just a bit more daring, eccentric, and overall fun. But first — leggings. With TikTok's #lululemondupes hashtag rising to 60.3 million views, it's clear many of us are interested in finding Lululemon's iconic pieces for less. Case in point? These Colorfulkoala Women's Buttery Soft High Waisted Yoga Pants, which are officially the best dupe for Lululemon's legendary Align Leggings. This TikToker is obsessed with her pair, telling followers: "as someone who loves the Lulu[lemon] Align leggings, I would never throw this around lightly... these leggings are the closest thing to an Align dupe you'll ever find." At a fraction of the price, this Amazon pair is just as high-quality as any luxury activewear brand, and comes in 15 rainbow-brite hues (we love the seafoam shade!). 

Lirika Matoshi's pieces have been making the rounds on TikTok, Instagram, and Pinterest for years, and her latest Strawberry Dress went immediately viral (via StyleCaster). While its superior construction is ah-mazing, its $490 price tag is still seriously steep. Luckily, there's a dupe in town that's just as cute: this KoomStudio Tulle Strawberry Sequin Dress Maxi Elegant Mesh Dress ranges from $60.60 to $73, and is very, very sweet.

When in doubt, a new bralette never fails, especially if it's Free People's One Adella Bralette. If you prefer to avoid spending $38, though, Livingly found this identical Rue21 Crochet Crisscross Bralette for just $6. Stunningly enough, this TikToker says the quality is actually better than FP's bras.

Activewear dupes and daily go-to's

Now that many of us are choosing to stuff our wired bras in a drawer forever, it's no surprise sales for soft and stretchy bras are rising (via The New York Times). While sports bras were once seen as an exercise-only kind of thing, many of us are reaching for our spandex shelf bras everyday. If you've ever coveted Lululemon's Free to Be Wild Bra and its flattering strappy back, you might be pleasantly surprised to know you can get the look for a lot less than $48. As per Livingly, this $16.19 Icyzone Sports Bra is identical to the Lululemon version, coming in 18 colors. This TikToker is "obsessed" with the brand's "amazing" activewear, especially this cutout-back design.

Ah, Ray-Ban's: the perennial classics that will never go out of style — shades you buy to wear forever. The issue is, more often than not, sunglasses get lost, scratched, or even sat on, making the notion of "lasting forever" a myth. That's where these Sojos Small Square Polarized Sunglasses come in, a perfect $14.99 dupe for Ray Ban's Hexagonal Legend $161 sunglasses. With an identical gold frame and polarized lenses, these sunglasses are perfect for everyday, no-fuss use.

Looking for more leggings? As StyleCaster explains, these $44.95 Aerie Real Me Crossover Leggings went viral recently, and since they're often sold out — why not hunt for an even cheaper dupe? These $20.98 Ododos Women's Cross Waist Yoga Leggings are perfect in cozy heather gray, and will prove just as flattering.

Super-trendy TikTok dupes

Don't get us wrong, we love a good wear-everyday basic. Leggings, comfy bralettes, and slides are our uniform, and who doesn't feel the power of the perfect T-shirt? But sometimes you want to go out-of-the-box with your fashion finds, and TikTok is making it that much easier to get Insta-approved looks on a budget. This TikToker hunted down all the best dupes for viral Pinterest outfits, and let's just say we're feeling deeply appreciative right about now. Exhibit A: this adorable, lime-green, '70s inspired House of Sunny Hockney Dress, a social media sensation that rounds out at around $136. Meanwhile, the Seyurigaoka Halter Neck Bodycon Dress is knit, stretchy, wear-everywhere perfection, and a perfect, high-quality $34.99 dupe.

Next up, Instagram and TikTok are booming with summer-approved, neon-brights, especially figure-flattering polo dresses and button-down anything. Omighty's Hibiscus Collared Dress in Peach is an influencer favorite, worn most often with Nike Air Force 1's and a cute baguette bag. If you prefer not to spend $75, why not go for this $18.99 Mieeyali Women's Boho Flower Print Mini Dress? It comes in tons of Y2K-inspired prints like butterflies, checkerboard, and paisley, and it's all-around a great wear-everywhere mini.

To know Cult Gaia's Serita Dress is to love it, but the $458 price tag is just a bit scary. Get the exact look for just $18.99 with this Nufiwi Knitted Cut Out Spaghetti Strap Long Dress, a TikTok-approved maxi that comes in every color under the sun.

Perfect work-from-home fashion dupes

By now, it's clear we love leggings — but sweatpants have a place in our hearts, too. Of course, the ideal sweatpants are still chic, with a flattering fit in an über-cute shade. Lululemon's $98 Align Joggers fit the bill, but not everyone is willing to shell out that much for sweats — no matter how buttery-soft they are. As per Livingly, TikTokers are going crazy over these Dragon Fit Joggers, a $28.98 alternative that is ultra-soft with four-way stretch, high-waisted with tummy control (win!), and slightly tapered with fit-everything pockets. Almost 8,000 reviewers are obsessed with these "amazing" sweats, while this TikToker says they are "the best joggers" ever.

A perfect pair of small gold hoops never fails, and these Jennifer Fisher's Kevin Huggies Gold-Plated Hoop Earrings are gorgeous. Still, the $285 price tag is steep, especially if looking to wear them to riskier locations like the beach or pool. TikTokers uncovered these Pavoi 14K Gold Hoop Earrings, which are actually gold-plated (via StyleCaster). With more than 26,000 Amazon reviewers raving about the high quality for the low price point, this TikTok user recommends the brand's whole collection.

If you want a wear-everyday activewear jacket that looks just like Lululemon's Define Jacket but don't want to spend $118, may we introduce you to this Yogalicious Women's Ultra Soft Lightweight Full Zip Yoga Jacket? At just $25.99, it comes in pink or blue, with 700 reviewers saying it's "so soft" and just "fantastic." Sold!
