How to Create the Gucci Look For Less

 

 

There is no doubt Gucci is the hottest luxury brand at the moment.  Every celeb, fashionista and blogger is currently touting it.  The mega talented Frida Giannini, Gucci’s latest Creative Director, has successfully given the fashion house a new lease of life while still playing on those classic Gucci elements, such as the red and green stripe, bamboo handles and the classic loafer.  She has managed to create an aesthetic that is so recognisably Gucci but added that much-needed breath of fresh air.

 

 

Sadly, unless you have an endless budget, having a wardrobe full of Gucci is a pipe dream, so I thought I’d share how I’m rocking that Gucci look for less.

 

 

Frills are going to be huge over Spring/Summer and we owe that Gucci.  Basically think flamboyance, ruffles, frills, prints, layers and an avalanche of colour!  This pink shirt couldn’t be more perfect and thankfully it’s a very purse friendly £34.99 but be quick it’s selling like hotcakes (find it HERE or HERE in blue).

In case you don’t manage to get your hands on this one, these are a few of my other frill shirt faves currently available on the high street:

 

 

 

The other big trend we’re going to be seeing a lot is red and pink.  This is one colour combination I never thought I’d rock and yet here I am, absolutely loving it.  In fact, red in general is making a sudden and reoccurring appearance in my wardrobe at the moment.

I’m really loving this inexpensive red ribbon neck tie from ASOS (which is now sadly sold out but you could just use any large ribbon for the same effect) as it really reminds me of the bow detail on the Sylvie bags (click HERE to see the one I mean).  In fact, bows seem to be popping up quite a bit in Gucci’s ready-to-wear collection this season as you can see HERE, HERE and HERE.

 

 

These embroidered trainers have to be the best and most affordable dupe out there.  If you can’t quite bring yourself to pay £480 for the real deal, these will set you back £25.  I try not to advocate blatant copies on the blog too much but for something like this which are so “fashion led” and are likely to be a one season hit wonder then I don’t think you can blame anyone for seeking a cheaper alternative.

 

 

Finally, just a word of warning expect to see a lot of light wash denim on the blog from now on because I’m currently obsessed!  I’m bringing it back to my wardrobe in its droves, almost like it’s the 90s again!

 

 

I really hope this post has given you some ideas of how you can recreate the Gucci look for less and which elements of the collection to draw influences from.  I would love to know your thoughts on the Gucci renaissance and whether you love it or if you think it’s all just hype.

 

  Outfit details: Shirt – H&M (find HERE or HERE in blue) | Jeans – Mother Denim (similar HERE & HERE) | Shoes – Ego (find HERE) | Ribbon Neck Tie – ASOS (similar HERE)

    Yes, you created a Gucci look with this frill top and embroidered sneakers. I ordered the same kicks too last weekend, such a great find. I agree, pink and red are a nice tandem as of the moment. I love your styling doll.

    I love this post on how to get the Gucci look without going broke. I am so inspired! I have to admit that although I have bought pieces from numerous fashion houses, I haven’t even dipped my toe into Gucci. And yet, I do love the frills and those flowery sneakers, as well as that fabulous handbag with the bamboo handles.
