Acne‘s shoes are probably what the brand is best known for, but their cozy knit sweaters are a close second favorite of mine. First, I obsessed over their mint-colored “Lia” cable knit jumper and now I find myself lusting for these bright waffle knit sweaters in yellow and blue. Pair these sweaters with a black leather leggings and matching ankle boots and you have an instantly chic outfit!

While I think that most of Louis Vuitton‘s runway collections wouldn’t really work off the runway, I do admire Marc Jacobs for his vision and ability to inspire the fashion world. Take the S/S 2012 collection for instance. LV brought out pastels for spring and swooooooooosh, a few months later everyone was doing pastels; including other high-end designers. For Spring 2013 MJ envisioned a collection full of chess print adorned pieces and now we’re starting to see the LV inspired check print trend trickling down to the fast fashion retailers such as ASOS. What would you rather wear? Louis Vuitton or ASOS?

So, how is beautiful is this J.Crew Collection Cashmere Polka-Dot Sweater? It’s just so feminine, fun, and overall extremely youthful, but at the same time also very wearable for women of any age. Although it’s quite simple, the black polka dots pop against the gray cashmere wool. The juxtaposition of a fun print on a conservatively-knit sweater creates a “cool” vibe. Although the price tag of $268 is indicative of the luxe quality (it is made of cashmere after all), we know it can be tough to shell out such a grand amount on a single sweater. Hence, we have a look-a-like below!

Besides the darker coloring, this Forever 21 Polka Dot Sweater greatly resembles the J.Crew sweater above. With the affordability of this sweater, as it’s priced at a budget-friendly $17.50, you can purchase this cute little sweater in multiple hues without breaking the bank.

Victoria’s Secret angel and supermodel mom Miranda Kerr went for a monochrome casual cool getup recently when she departed from LAX on January 15, 2013, looking absolutely fabulous in oversized cat eye sunglasses, an animal print cardigan, black leather pants and her favorite Isabel Marant Bekket wedge sneakers. I loved Miranda’s look so much, I recreated it for you on a more budget-friendly level. Hope you like it!
