Pants & Jeans

What I love about style blogger Rachel from Pink Peonies is that she isn’t afraid of color. And ever since I saw her in these vivid cobalt blue pants I knew I had to recreate her fabulous look on a more accessible budget level. Et voilà! Here’s the result. Do you like it? Is it close enough to Rachel’s outfit?

I used to love wearing white when I was a teenager, but then got tired of it and stopped wearing anything white apart from tops or blouses for a very, very long time. Nowadays, I embrace wearing white again and even an all-white look as daring as this one from Jennifer Lopez really finds my liking. I love the crisp cleanliness of J.Lo’s look, so I tried to recreate her outfit for you on a more budget-friendly level. Do you like it?

Stripes are this season’s biggest trend – can you imagine how happy I am about this since I’ve always loved all things striped? And even though I’m not the biggest fan of vertical stripes, I must say I really like these Balmain stripe skinnies. But – OMG! – $2.038? For a pair of jeans? To me this seems unjustifiable and downright overpriced. But fret not, we have found so many great stripe jeans alternatives, there’s one available for every kind of budget!

Topshop MOTO Stripe Leigh Jeans

Of course Topshop couldn’t leave out such a huge trend. I really like their Balmain inspired skinny jean version. Just wish they also had the zip pockets. But for $80 these are a great and affordable alternative.

So how chic does Reese Witherspoon look here in her black peplum top which she paired with a skinny jeans, leopard print heels, a black tote and and a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers? I am absolutely in love with her casual yet flawlessly chic outfit, Reese rarely puts a foot wrong when it comes to her style choices. Here’s a look-4-less I created which is similar to Reese’s yet will cost you only a fraction of what she had to pay to achieve it (unless she got all the stuff for free, of course).

Hello September! You kinda snuck up on us, didn’t you? Now it’s time to slowly kiss summer goodbye and start stocking up on fall fashion. Tartan print is inseparably linked with the colder seasons and I loved McQ‘s tartan print collection from last year which has also found fans in high profile celebs such as The Duchess of Cambridge and actress Marion Cotillard. But $515? No can dosville, baby doll!

LOFT “Marisa” Plaid Ankle Pants

If you’re, too, a fan of the McQ tartan trousers, but don’t want to spend more than $500 on a pair of pants, here is a great and similar looking alternative by LOFT for under $80. What do you think of these pants? Cool or ageing?
