I know—whose goal aesthetic isn’t Chanel? It may seem like a serious stretch at times, but I like to think that when it comes to fashion, you can achieve any look you wish for at any budget. Seriously, all it takes is a little hard work and research, and, lucky for you, I’ve done it all already. Call me crazy, but after seeing how much you guys liked this roundup of brands that are similar to our beloved Reformation, I figured why not challenge myself to do the same kind of thing with another favorite?
I looked for affordable brands that can elevate everyday items such as shirts, sweaters, and skirts as well as ones that are a good source for classic Parisian-inspired items, such as slingbacks, tweed separates, and cardigans. At first, I thought this would be a tough feat, but I ended up with a list of 10 brands—all of which were definitely worthy of sharing. Ahead, see and shop the brands that made the cut.
Storets has a trove of ladylike dresses and sets that perfectly channel that Chanel vibe.
Yes, I know Revolve isn’t technically the brand, but the site had so many good options I couldn’t simply choose one. LPA, Majorelle, and NBD are especially on-point for getting that expensive look on a budget.
Young French fashion label Musier, is already a favorite of mine for its standout takes on everyday items such as tanks and cardigans.
Eloquii’s dresses, separates, and accessories are understated and elegant—just like the Chanel girl.
Pixie Market’s curated offering ranges from ultra classic to trendy, so actually, no matter what look you’re going for, you should probably be shopping its site.
No one does affordable but expensive-looking accessories like Charles & Keith.
You can always count on Zara for timeless and trendy pieces at an amazing price. Right now, however, its dresses, blouses, and cardigans feel especially Parisian.
House of Sunny’s special knits and jackets are just begging to be paired with jeans and slingbacks for a casual take on the Chanel-inspired look.
Sam Edelman is known to kill it on the trends, but its selection of classic shoes is note-worthy, too. When combined, the three shoes below can keep you looking polished you across every season.
Mango’s origins may be in Spain, but from tweed separates to black-and-white basics, its extensive selection definitely has something for the French-inspired dresser, too.
