Coats & Jackets

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?

I think it has become clear why celebs absolutely adore the essential trench, and after all who can blame them? As a vital wardrobe must, this trench coat by Burberry is the ultimate classical statement with a contemporary twist. The silhouette is very flattering, framing the body and accentuating (and concealing) all the right places. Featuring leather piping, this adds a modern flair and truly brings a swanky feel to this highly coveted item. Though the price tag is quite steep, the steal below speaks for itself!

Warehouse Piped Trench

UPDATE (08/02/2012): Check out this fabulous Warehouse trench coat I found on ASOS today. So similar to the Burberry mac, right? Love it!

Wallis Tipped Belted Trench

Wallis is currently having a sale on this an amazing Tipped Belt Trench priced for only $88! As trench coat season is soon approaching, this one would definitely serve as a great transition piece plus make a staple in your closet. Also, if you’re against wearing leather, this may be a great alternative to the Burberry trench as it highlights a similar style without the leather piping.

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.

UPDATE (01/31/2014): So how fab is this leather jacket by MANGO? It’s such a close dupe to the Rick Owens version and is also surprisingly affordable at $289.99 (we’re talking real leather here!). Really thinking about getting this beauty of a leather jacket myself.

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.

So how cool is this monochrome floral biker jacket by Christopher Kane? I love how it both unifies tough girl chic and femininity. It’s such a versatile statement piece that would look great with anything from a cool leather pant as pictured below to a cute and flirty summer dress. What I certainly don’t love though? The steep price of $1.900, of course.

Club Monaco “Davie” Botanical Print Moto Jacket

HOT DEAL: 30% off sale items at Club Monaco! Offer valid through December 18, 2013 (11:59pm PT). Discount will be applied at checkout.

If you can’t afford the pricey designer jacket, take a look at this just as faboulous look for less alternative by Club Monaco which is currently on sale for $119 (even 30% less if you take advantage of the offer posted above). The floral print on this jacket is slightly smaller, but the overall look screams Christopher Kane, don’t you agree?

I usually get most excited about either shoes or dresses, but Christopher Bailey makes me go wild for coats and jackets. Each season he creates the most lustworthy outerwear for Burberry Prorsum and this quilted black biker jacket below is certainly no exception! If it weren’t for the astronomical price this beauty would already hang in my closet. Well, if

Karen Millen Quilted Leather Jacket

UPDATE (10/12/2011): This quilted leather jacket by Karen Millen is almost a perfect Burberry Prorsum replica though I wouldn’t exactly call it a “steal” at almost $800.

Oasis Leather Biker Jacket

Now don’t get me wrong. No one’s going to mistake Oasis‘ take on the Burberry leather jacket for the original, but considering it costs less than 10% of the original and is also made of real leather I think we have a pretty neat deal here (and don’t forget the promo code for 15% OFF!). Available in black or tan.
