Oh Balmain, how I love your sharp-tailored blazers! And apparently Kim Kardashian does just the same as she’s been spotted wearing this gorgeous military-inspired double-breasted leather blazer on at least 12 different outings. And if you follow Kim K.’s style, you’ll know how rare it is to see her wear something as bold as this blazer more than once, so she must be really in love with this particular piece. I so wish I could afford me some Balmain real deal goodness, but at $3.710 this isn’t going to happen anytime soon.

Vakko for INC International Concepts Faux-Leather Blazer

While randomly browsing the big ol’ Internet today, I stumbled upon this chic faux leather blazer by INC International Concepts and it stopped me right in my tracks. Everything about it looked so familiar – the design, the colors, the silhouette – and after about five seconds it dawned on me: Balmain on a budget for sure! The original price for this piece used to be $169.50 which I find to be quite heavy for a *faux* leather blazer, but luckily it got marked down to a little over $100 as of now. So if you’re a passionate Balmain lover and are willing to invest a bit to get the coveted designer look, this is a great alternative.
