High fashion at low prices: Kmart dupes for cult favourites

Footwear

A good pair of shoes is about more than the brand. A great pair can empower you before a date or meeting and help you feel sexy and confident. Keep you up and running all day. And they can look damn good.

Sock Fit Heeled Boots ($30) are a great dupe for Aere’s Square Toe ankle boots ($220).

If you like Wittner’s Howie leather boots ($289) or Windsor Smith’s little black leather boots ($199), Kmart’s Gusset high heel boots ($30) are a fantastic substitute.

Love a slingback? Look no further than these Dress Slingback Block Heels, stunningly similar to a Chanel pair that costs $1,820!

Outerwear

Who doesn’t love a good jacket? They’re the perfect addition to complete an outfit, armour when going into an unknown situation or having a mental health moment, and protection for colder weather. Given how much I love winter, I should have a closet for jackets alone.

For $25, this Sherpa Jacket is hailed as a replica of the $227 Free People’s Hit the Slopes Fleece Jacket.

Did I hear you say ‘Denim Trench Coat’? The $49 item is reportedly flying off shelves as it’s considered a pretty convincing dupe of the $350 version from One Teaspoon and likened to the $700 denim trench coat from Camilla and Marc.

Are you a pinstripe suit-wearing girlie who loves an ensemble? Kmart has you covered with its three-piece, mix-and-match suits, which sell for $63 combined (pants or skirt, $83 with the vest) and are being raved about as a dupe for DISSH, which retails for around $340.

Puffer jackets are back. All my kids seem to own one! Kmart hasn’t missed this trend with its $39 Crop Puffer Jacket, an easy dupe for The North Face 1996 Retro Nuptse Jacket, which will set you back $550.

Activewear

Considered a wardrobe staple during COVID lockdown, activewear is still a fashion must-have. It’s my go-to attire for housework, which is active-ish, right?

Take this Active Women’s Long Sleeve Ultrasoft Jacket for $20. It’s giving Lululemon’s $149 define jacket a run for its money!

Kmart’s Active Women’s Youth Dance Pants, priced at $25, is an affordable alternative to Lorna Jane’s $90 Flashdance pants.

Sleepwear

Quality, comfortable sleepwear shouldn’t have to cost a fortune. And Kmart’s range proves you can sleep in style and still afford other necessities and luxuries.

Fancy short sleepwear? This $20 Short Sleeve Top and Shorts Satin Pyjama Set in pink or navy is an excellent dupe for Peter Alexander’s $129 set.

Shapewear

Much of Kmart’s Shapewear is said to be a good dupe of Skims for a fraction of the price.

Unfortunately, they don’t have many dupes for curvy gals (although the satin PJs go up to size 22). As a curvy girl, I’m hopeful I’ll see some more Kmart dupes for me in the future!
