Trick or Treat? Can You Guess the Price of These Accessories?

Amanda Stavropoulos

If you had an endless supply of money, what would you buy? Every new season pair of Céline shoes followed by a new Saint Laurent tux each season? Us too. But what can you do when the cash flow doesn’t match your expensive taste? Look for similar styles.

Copying in the fashion industry is no news to anyone, and we would never endorse it, or suggest you buy an obvious designer imitation (fake logos and exact replicas), but the way fashion and the trend cycle works, is major designers determine the trends, and fast-fashion brands interpret them and make them accessible. We’ll always try and shop the original, but when that can’t happen, we either attempt a little DIY or shop a trickled down version of the trend.

For a little Halloween fun, we’ve rounded up some save or splurge accessory finds. See if you can pick which one is which. Keep scrolling!

Ballet Flats

The ballet flat has been a major trend this season. Gone are the days of getting through the work day in sky high heels. A relaxed, yet elevated flat does the job perfectly. Can you guess which pair will cost you more than week's rent?

Mango Lace Up Ballerinas ($70) and Miu Miu Lace Up Stud Velvet Flats ($1090).


Gold circle earrings have been popping up in so many collections, it's hard to keep up, but with such a simplistic and clean design, it's easy to understand why. The architectural earrings feel modern and sleek when paired with any outfit. But one pair costs around the same price as a jumbo-sandwich. Can you guess which ones?

Marni Gold Drop Earrings ($601) and Sportsgirl Circle Drop Dangle Earrings ($17).


Did we call it, or what? A little while ago we said mules were the only pair of shoes you need to see you through spring. And it seems like everyone took our advice. Rarely a day goes by without spotting a pair of these out on the street. Do you know which pair will set you back a little more? 

Atoms & Here Daria Suede Mules ($130) and Mansur Gavriel Suede Mules ($625).

Sling Bag

It's the perfect time of year to invest in sling bag. Why? No doubt your social calendar is filling up with end of year parties, so you'll need at least one hand free to hold a champagne glass. Which one will you buy?

Chloé The Marci Mini Textured Leather Bag ($1200) and Show Off Saddle Bag ($63).

Slingback Pumps

White shoes feel fresh for summer, and a pair of slingbacks are perfect for party season. We'll be wearing them with this nifty DIY. Can you guess which pair will set you back more than the other?

Paul Andrew Passion Slingback Pumps ($816) and ASOS Scorpio Pointed Heels ($49).
