Look 4 less | Balenciaga Cutout Buckled Booties

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 Bootiesls 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.

The moto vest

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.

Alexa Chung: three looks wearing the navy sweater.

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.

Look #1 Class up a sweater for an evening out with a bold heel: furry or spiked, whatever you like.

Look #2 Easily nail downtown cool by pairing a sweater with a mini and moto boots, pulling ita all together with a statement-making military jacket.

Look #3 Dress down in a sweater, denim shorts, and velvet skimmers for an afternoon cruise.

Jaune Paris

This frock is all scallop and show, with a row of flouncy ruffles descending from the left shoulder across the chest, flutter sleeves, and a cinched waist. Pair it with dark heels and an antique hat for the classic Lulu look, or sweet flats and a silk shawl for a sunny, relaxed look. The light and fabric is the perfect answer to getting dressed up in the summer’s heat, and the length keeps things ladylike when you take a seat on the grass to people watch.
