Dorothy Perkins is selling a £22 version of Emilia Wickstead’s £620 snakeskin shirt… can you tell the difference?

Dorothy Perkins is selling a designer-inspired snakeskin blouse at a £600 discount, so can you tell which one is the pricey version?

Emilia Wickstead's Marcella snake-print silk shirt is inspired by American socialite, model and cabaret performer Edith Bouvier Beale.

'Little Edie', the eccentric cousin of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy, was made a cult figure by Grey Gardens – a 1975 documentary about her family life in a crumbling East Hampton manor of the same name.

Both Edie's outfits and home decor were characterised by exotic animal prints.

The brown and pink print shirt costs a hefty £620, and can be worn with a matching shirt – which has a £1,225 price tag.

It's already sold out in size 6, so you'd better be quick if you want to nab one.

This classic snakeskin shirt has more of a beige tint than a pink one, and we reckon it looks much pricier than it really is. Winning!
