I almost get the sensation that I’m looking at a Magic Eye poster when I look at this Givenchy Ottoman Stitch Stripe Jacket. It’s definitely different and very appealing to the eye. I love how Keri Hilson sports it with a pair of black skinnies and a peep-toe boot. Such elegance when it’s worn so simplified. I’m very curious to see how this jacket would look with a pair of jeans as opposed to the all-black ensemble. So, if you want to get the look and not be on the waiting list and spend $1557 on this striking jacket, here are a few more choices!

Smythe Piped One Button Blazer

Update (02/25/2012): If you’re looking for a high quality alternative, look no further because this striped Smythe blazer is a great Givenchy look-a-like. It does retail for a very hefty $486.50, but it’s still less than 50% of the original’s price.

Alice + Olivia “Sage” Striped Blazer

I love this Alice + Olivia “Sage” Striped Blazer! I love the shoulders and the pockets! Very similar to the Givenchy and you won’t be out $1557 either. Priced at $368 this jacket is definitely a steal. But, if it still doesn’t fit your budget we have some more for ya!

Aryn K. Stripe Blazer

This Aryn K. blazer has slightly bigger stripes than the Givenchy and the Alice + Olivia, but I’m really enjoying the collar detail around the neckline on this one. And priced at $94, I’d say it’s pretty budget-friendly!

Tart “Camryn” Jacket

Now this Tart jacket looks the most like the Givenchy with the striping. However, it looks more of “going to the office” than a jacket that you can wear more casually. Nonetheless, if you like the look and you’re really loving the stripes of the Givenchy and want something a little more affordable, I’d go for this one!

525 America Striped Blazer

OK, so I’m not sure how I feel about this jacket by 525 America. I like the buttons, but I feel like it should’ve been a full-length sleeve rather than a 3/4 sleeve. Especially since you have the button style of a pea-coat! It does look cute with jeans and priced at $95.99, it might suit your taste for the warmer weather that’s soon ahead.

This delightfully whimsical pair of earrings by Prada remind me of a time when glitter and sparkle were the two best ways to describe my wardrobe and jewelry collection. I remember my treasure trove was filled with pieces I borrowed from my grandmother, as well as the vintage finds I gathered along the way. It’s really quite remarkable to witness fashion making a full circle at last. While reinvention doesn’t quite mean we should recreate your entire wardrobe from the 80’s and 90’s, it does give us the opportunity to have fun with nostalgic looks without looking like we stepped out of a time machine. Considering the instant popularity of this pair, it seems it isn’t just me who wants to play dress up. Of course the fact they are sold out shouldn’t stop you from reliving the memories. You can still buy a very similar pair thanks to one of our readers! Check out what she found below…

‘Tis the season of the trench. One of the classic essentials to every stylish girl’s wardrobe, this must-have is a safe return on investment. You can wear it on any occasion; from going out over a cocktail dress or with jeans and a feminine blouse on a hot date. It will take you from the airport to an elegant dinner, and you’ll look just as chic. For a piece like this, it’s really important to look for quality. And quality is something the iconic Burberry Trench has, but spending over a thousand dollars isn’t the only way to invest. Take a look at our other option below.

Mango Double Breasted Trench

Lucky for those of us who are on a budget, great quality can be found at an awesome price – if you know where to look. This gorgeously tailored trench by Mango, pays homage to the original silhouette and close attention to detail with its tortoiseshell buttons and flattering seams (in all the right places). Ladies without trenches, at $159.99, this is surely a wise addition to your closet.

I am completely smitten by Liv Tyler‘s Stella McCartney Polka Dot cocktail dress. It is so chic and you don’t need that much to accessorize it, just a sparkly pair of drop earrings, a cute clutch and some classic black pumps. This dress is sexy, but it also leaves a little bit to the imagination with its black sheer sleeves and flirty details around the waist. Can’t wait to wear the look to your next cocktail party? Check out our look for less below!
