Budget Look – Blue Crush by Halogen

by Irina on April 28, 2015

Alright, I’ll admit it: I will officially love cobalt blue and stripes until the day I die! There’s just no way I could ever let go of these two personal faves of mine. When I recently browsed through Nordstrom’s newest arrivals the cobalt blue hobo bag and pants by Halogen instantly caught my eye and before I knew it I was already imagining an outfit around those items with stripes being a major part of this look, of course. Well, you know what they say: “If you can’t beat them, join them.” – which is exactly what I did. What do you think of my blue crush outfit?

Whatever you want to call this piece of clothing – a blanket, a jacket, a cape or a poncho, there’s no denying that Burberry Prorsum‘s check wool and cashmere cape from the Fall 2014 show has been declared the latest must-have item for fall and winter. The popularity of this new cape trend is mostly owed to stylish celebs and It girls like Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Sarah Jessica Parker who have all been spotted being cosily wrapped in their monogrammed Burberry blanket capes out and about to fight off the chilly weather. If you love the blanket cape trend, but can’t casually drop $1,395 (not that you could anyway since the Burberry cape is already sold out everywhere), keep on reading to find a few budget-frienldy alternatives.

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?

An original Rick Owens classic leather jacket is one of the few designer items I would gladly splurge on if I had 2.5k to spare. I especially love this sleek biker jacket below with its elegantly draped collar and ribbed wool sleeves; the shape is timeless and flattering and the leather looks incredibly soft, doesn’t it? A cool and edgy leather jacket like this one is a closet staple and should be hanging in every woman’s wardrobe.

Muubaa “Agena” Leather Jacket

UPDATE (06/20/2013): Just discovered that these leather jackets by Muubaa would be great buys if you’re looking for a more affordable Rick Owens alternative. They’re not exactly a steal at £279-£349, but from what I have read about the brand worth the mini investment. And oooh, did I mention they offer free worldwide shipping?

Jennifer Lopez Faux-Leather Motorcycle Jacket

This faux leather jacket by Jennifer Lopez surely can’t compete with an original Rick Owens jacket, but if you’re looking for a good-looking and affordable leather jacket, this one has obviously quite a few Rick Owens inspired elements and the price of $50.40 ain’t too bad as well! Also available in white and plus sizes.

I am currently totally crushing on everything black and white. I also happen to have a total crush on the beautiful Annabelle from the fabulous personal style blog VIVALUXURY. And one of her recent monochrome outfits. I mean, how amazing does she look here? So seductive yet still very classy and elegant. Absolutely love the look! That’s why I decided to recreate it for you on a budget-friendly level. What do you think of my style blogger look for less? Did I nail it?
