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

ASOS Double Zip Belted Leather Jacket

Update (10/20/2013): Two years after the last update I stumbled upon this ASOS leather jacket and immediately had to think of the Burberry Prorsum moto jacket above. Absolutely in love with this steal!

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.

Topshop Quilted Longline Leather Biker Jacket

Update (10/03/2011): And here’s yet another super similar Burberry Prorsum look-a-like by Topshop. It’s quite pricey, but real leather jackets always are.

Update (08/04/2011): Just came across another alternative by Warehouse.

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. Available in black or tan.

I’ve been majorly obsessed with leather sleeved trench coats and jackets ever since Christopher Bailey sent them down the runway in Burberry Prorsum‘s Spring 2011 collection. Owning a Burberry trench coat is one of my biggest fashion dreams, but looking at price tags of $2.000 and upwards, I am not too sure this dream will come true soon.

W118 by Walter Baker “Keanu” Faux Leather-Sleeved Trench Coat

While I’m saving up for my first Burberry piece, I may or may not stray a little and get my leather-sleeved jacket fashion fix by opting for this Burberry-inspired trench from W118 by Walter Baker, which, at only $115 (sale price!), will save you more than $2.500 in comparison to the pricey Burberry Prorsum original. I absolutely adore this budget-friendly trench and would probably get the olive/black version, too.

A few days ago Jessica Alba and her cute little daughters attended Ralph Lauren’s Fall ’13 Girls Runway Show in The Hamptons. The former actress and now entrepreneur (see The Honest Life) looked absolutely amazing in head-to-toe Ralph Lauren; I just adore the navy blue polka dot dress on Jessica which she combined with a denim jacket, a monochrome two-tone satchel and matching black cork wedge heels. The dress is supposed to be from Ralph Lauren’s Black Label Collection, however, I couldn’t find it anywhere online, but stumbled upon an almost identical and more affordable alternative at NORDSTROM (see dress #1 in the list below). How do you like my budget-friendly take on Jessica Alba’s casual-chic summer look? Yay or nay?

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!

Wallis Black Stripe Jacket

UPDATE (05/18/2013): Just discovered this striped blazer at Wallis which would be a great alternative to the pricey Givenchy jacket. On sale for $70!

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.

I’m absolutely obsessed with this color right now! It’s the perfect color to show off a vacay tan. There’s something so hot and sexy about a crisp white shirt or skirt.
