Sometimes an item of clothing comes along that every stylish celebrity is obsessed with and, lucky for us mere mortals, the high street quickly clamours to copy. This season, said item is Réalisation Par’s Emilie dress in the Shanghai nights print, which – at $160 (around £120) – is definitely more of a Christmas (plus birthday and next Christmas) gift combined than a pocket money purchase.
Seen on the Instagram feeds of Kylie Jenner and model of the moment Kaia Gerber, the silk Emilie dress and its cherry blossom print has spawned plenty of similar styles, at a third of the price tag.
Whether you fancy a frock as close to the original as possible or are just taking loose inspiration, we’ve found some killer dupes that won’t break the bank, which you can shop below. Just add heels – or, for daytime, slip on over a T-shirt and team with stompy biker boots. It’s a win-win situation.
The red one
Urban Outfitters’ Waterlily frock is the little red dress you never knew you needed… until now. With a super similar shape and design to Réalisation Par’s Emilie, it’s the attention-seeking alternative to the original, thanks to its bold rouge colour. Bonus – at £44 you won’t have to save for too long to afford it. Shop here.
The velvet one
If silk and satin aren’t your style, Pretty Little Thing have created this little black velvet number, as part of their collaboration with Kourtney Kardashian. Yep, that’s right, you can dress like a Kardashian for just £25. Result! Shop here.
The really floral one
Nasty Gal’s A Rose Between Two Thorns dress is perfect if you like the shape and style of the Réalisation Par one, but you fancy a bolder print, and it’s a total steal at £30. Shop here.
