Ballet flats are all the rage lately, something I’m sure Audrey Hepburn would be happy about seeing as she wore them a lot of the time. One of the most iconic ballet flat is Chanel. In fact, I was surprised they weren’t the most searched shoe, that honor went to Chanel’s espadrilles.
If it was up to me, the ballet flat would knock the espadrille out of that ranking. Perhaps it’s the influence of Audrey Hepburn, but I find Chanel’s version the epitome of classy. Unfortunately, that comes at a high price. Thank goodness we now live in a time where there are dupes! And I just happened to find 8 for us.
1. Banana Republic – Robin Almond-Toe Ballet Flat | 2. Zara – Two-Toned Ballet Flats | 3. Tory Burch – Chelsea Cap Toe Ballet Flat | 4. Forever 21 – Faux Leather Cap Toe Slingback Flats |
5. Michael Michael Kors – Melody Toe Cap Ballerinas | 6. Margaux – The Demi |
7. Paul Mayer – Women’s Best Quilted Leather Cap Toe Ballet Flats |
8. Zara – Capped Toe Ballet Flats
Why only 8 choices? It’s a little difficult to find Chanel dupes! These 8 are the ones that I think are closest to the real Chanel shoes. Some of these are somewhat expensive, but brand new Chanel’s can cost at least $750. If you decide to go the pre-owned route, which could be a good idea, you’re still looking at around $375 at The Real Real. In full transparency, I’ve never bought anything at that site, but I’m thinking of using it for a Chanel boy bag eventually. In our world of fast fashion, there are some things that would be good to get pre-owned. I also love the idea of wondering who owned it before me. However, I’m not 100% sold on pre-owned shoes.
Of course, I digress… it’s a usual thing for me. Now, I usually go through all the picks and let you know why I picked them. This is a different situation – it’s obvious why I picked these shoes – they all look like Chanel’s. I’d like to know if you all are as into finding Chanel dupes as I am. If you are, let me know why below. I get excited about Chanel dupes because the brand epitomizes class to me. Coco sure knew what she was doing when she started the line and somehow it’s managed to stay relevant in 2018. I can’t wait to see what happens in the future.
