Writing up a post about these buckled booties by Balenciaga is a real pleasure. Why? Well, mainly because I find myself very attracted to this type of masculine biker boots even if it’s such a bulky boot.

The Balenciaga Cutout Buckled Booties are just great. Since these boots have been making the rounds on a number of style blogs and celebs lately, here you go with a budget-friendly alternative. Topshop comes in second in terms of the Balenciaga look with their “ARABEL” boot that is also available in white and a black studded version.
Gear-up with this season’s pièce de résistance: the moto vest. Layered under jackets, on top of maxis, and even perfectly placed atop your favourite tees, this piece brings a touch of downtown ease to any ensemble.
These butter-soft, biker-inspired vests make the ideal addition to any perfectly undone menswear-inspired look.
Think: Button-down shirt tucked into slim cut denim and ankle booties, or go timeless day-to-night by styling everyday black trousers, simple heels and a top knot.
Revered as the street style poster girl for wearable-chic style, I find myself incessantly trailing shots of Alexa Chung to inspire my everyday attire. I adore this it-Brit’s ability to perfectly curate an outfit for any occasion. Leave it to Alexa to brilliantly rock a navy sweater around town three different ways.
There is one thing for sure that you must know by now: the 70’s are back in full force.
The reference point for most designers goes back to YSL and what he did in the 1970’s. From the color palette to his famous Gypsy collection, everyone from Marc Jacobs, Fendi, D&G, Etro and Ferretti are all getting on board for Spring 2011.
One of the standout trends that we have spotted is the Peasant Blouse. Done in many variations, we’ve seen off the shoulder, embroidered and romantic styles.
When it comes to wearing this boho chic staple in a modern way, look no further than Alexa Chung. The trendsetter was spotted in New York earlier this year in a breezy vintage blouse embellished with intricate red needlework. But instead of pairing the top with a flowy maxi skirt and beaded sandals, the trendsetter opted for vintage cutoffs, Topshop’s Crochet Shopper Bag ($76), and edgy Mishka Liliana Sandals ($375) in Black Patent, which restrain the outfit from looking like a total flashback.
