The 2018 Hot List And How To Shop The Top Alternatives!


Lyst has recently revealed their most popular products and while they are gorgeous as expected; some of them are out of the majority of our price ranges. Therefore we saw it as our civic duty to find the best high street alternatives to obtain the same look.

Unsurprisingly Off White Black Brushed, Diagonal Arrow Galaxy Hoodie made the list. While we adore the Off-White we also love a bargain and Adidas Originals Adicolor Three Stripe Cropped Hoodie In Black is just that.

Acne Studios Clea Bomber Jacket in Pale Pink is a gorgeous girly design. However, Goldi London Bomber jacket is an amazing alternative with a similar satin look.

We saw the return of monogram designs across many brands; Gucci, Burberry and Fendi, the most notable return is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull M bag. For a similarly elegant shape, we would recommend River Island Tan suede tassel handle large tote bag. However woven bags seem to be fashion influencers favourite currently. The most popular is Loewe – Large Basket Bag. Perfect for a day at the beach is The White Company’s Double Handle Straw Basket Bag.

Athleisure and trainers still retain their crown as the footwear of choice for the casual-cool girl look, with Golden Goose – Silver & Gold Superstar Sneakers being the most popular. However, Rebecca Minkoff Michell Flatform Trainers – Rock Silver/Stars Black have a remarkably similar design! The metallic shoe trend crossed over to the ankle boots as well with MM6 Maison Margiela Ankle boot. However, this sequined boot is sold out everywhere, so consider Alto- Pointed Block Heel Shape instead from Office!

Yet going into summer a more popular shoe emerging is Gucci Pursuit Trek Slides. Adidas once again is a brilliant alternative to a designer favourite yet they retain good quality. Balenciaga is the best selling brand; therefore, it is no surprise that their Speed sneakers are so popular. This stretch-knit sock trend that originated with Vetements boots has now filtered into the high street. Pretty Little Thing offer an almost identical style to Balenciaga’s with their Black Knitted Sock Trainer.

The Instagram favourite Gucci belt is probably the most expected item on the list as it is one of their iconic pieces. However, River Island’s Black croc embossed double ring belt has a similar design and on first glance could be mistaken for the designer belt itself.

Finally, the most inexpensive item on the list Topshop’s £36 Joni jean. Despite the rise of the flare and wide leg trouser people still, return to their high-waisted skinny jeans. For an even cheaper pair of skinny jean opt for Missguided – Vice High Waisted Skinny Jeans.
