Lululemon is spenny
They have some fab pieces but not everyone has a spare €190 to drop on a white half zip.
That’s why dupes have become our saving grace for when you want the look but just don’t have the budget right now.
Amazon might not be the first place you think of when it comes to clothes shopping but don’t underestimate what you can find as you scroll through the never-ending options.
Take the Lululemon Scuba Oversized Half-Zip Hoodie; it retails for €118 and is available in a multitude of colours.
It’s made with a natural, breathable, cotton-blend fleece fabric – meaning it’s both lightweight, soft and incredibly warm.
Yet you can get something very similar on Amazon for a fraction of the price, literally, as it’s just €13.20.
The dupe is under the lengthy title of ‘Gentlewarm Womens Zip Up Hoodie Sports Tops, Ladies Oversized Half Zipper Pullover Sweatshirts, Long Sleeve Gym Hoodies with Kangaroo Pocket and Thumbholes for Running Exercise Outdoor.’
Then the name really rolls off the tongue, it’s just so damn catchy.
On a serious note, the seller describes the product as: “High quality 1/2 zip-up collar women’s sweatshirt is made of cotton faux polyester and lined with fleece, the fabric is very comfortable and thick.
“This long-sleeved top can be warm in the cold season, keeping you warm all day long.”
It’s made up of 50% Polyester, 50% Cotton and 100% bargain.
Yet if you want to get a full tracksuit for less than half the price of one piece from Lululemon you can get a pair of bottoms from Amazon as well – and yes they’re a dupe as well.
If you’ve ever looked at the Swift Mid-Rise Wide-Leg Pant Full Length from the designer activewear brand but quickly closed the tab when you saw the €128 price tag go to Amazon right now.
Their ‘Promover Women’s Activewear Trousers Straight Wide Leg with Pockets Yoga Pants Stretch Work Tracksuit Bottoms Gym Joggers Causal Tummy Control Lounge Pants Petite/Regular/Tall’ (so catchy it could be a song title) are a pretty good copy.
Coming in at €36 these slouchy bottoms come in a wide range of colours and sizes to suit literally everyone.
With the money you save, you could pick up one in every shade.
So go forth and be stylish without breaking the bank.
