Few things have the ability to rival an item you just purchased that is not only durable, stylish, gets the job done (whatever that may be), is relatively affordable and won’t cause you to question said purchase with doubt and regret mere moments or days after. And so begins the start of our new column on The Weekly Cut dubbed “The One Where/When/With” (fill in with the appropriate adverb). Launching this February, our team will aim to help you discover what we’re currently coveting and clicked “buy now” on. Whether it’s the latest face wash that blows out of the way any other product you’ve used before to clean your skin, that one style of boots you swear can be purchased on the high street as opposed to at a high-end price, that one plant that transformed the vibe of your home and also acts as a natural antidepressant, just to name a few. Welcome to the one thing you share with and text everyone about and influence to buy for their own pleasure too!
Dipping a toe into the water of fresh new arrivals and mere moments later you find yourself purchasing something you may or may not have needed to begin with. This week on The One With, we share the perfect high street dupe! When we first laid eyes on this ribbed top by Prada, it was love at first sight – for real. It’s no secret that the luxury house has mastered their knitwear over the decades it’s been in business, so we knew we found a good thing. A wardrobe staple, if you wanna call it that! But then we scrolled down to its retail price, and we swiftly moved the item to our dream wish list. Who needs yet *another* simple knitted top? No one and everyone, to be honest with you.
We stashed our dream item away and after a few days upon inspecting the new arrivals section at Zara, we stumbled upon its identical twin! And at just £25.99, it was hard to resist – one click, two clicks and after hitting ‘purchase’, we patiently waited for this almost duplicate version to make its way home to us. Fast-forward 3 days and here it was – though the material differs from its original, the feel, cut, style and color hit the spot! See for yourself below –
