These Balenciaga biker boots (left) were the shoe of the season, so of course Topshop (right) would want to make a similar boot. The Topshop boot retails for $229.99 and the Balenciaga boot is $1,275.00.

Givenchy (left) has included these graphic prints all over its runway for a while now, and Zara (right) has definitely got in on the fun. The Givenchy Bambi sweater cost $1,375.00 while the Zara retails for $59.00.

11. Lanvin/ Zara,

Lanvin made cerulean PJs (left) for $489.00 and then Zara (right) also made cerulean PJs (price not available). This design overlap is basically the cerulean speech scene from Devil Wears Prada when Miranda Priestly puts Andy in her place for laughing during the fashion run-through. Watch the scene here.

14. Alexander Wang/ Zara ,

It depends on which color platform sandals you really want: Alexander Wang (left) made them in black and then Zara (right) made them in a brownish nude (price not available). It also depends on how much you want to spend because the Wang sandal will run you $450.00.

15. Stella McCartney/ Zara, Pascal Le Segretain via Getty

Stella McCartney made this super modern suit with a long pin-striped jacket (left), so Zara (right) also made a long pin-striped jacket (price not available). The Stella McCartney look will cost you $2,495.00.
