Alice + Olivia

Update: This post has been updated on January 30, 2017. Scroll down to see the new adds.

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!

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.

Alessandra Ambrosio always seemse like one of those superhumans to me. She’s a super successful supermodel, mom of two, has a gorgeous face, a smokin’ hot body and an enviable sense of style. Ale certainly hit the jackpot in the lucky gal department.

“Spring Breakers” star Vanessa Hudgens made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in late March looking stunning in a yellow beaded pencil dress by Alice + Olivia. The actress completed her outfit with gold Jerome C. Rousseau high heels and matching gold jewelry. I just love this bright fitted dress on Vanessa! It really suits her caramel skin tone, don’t you agree? Yellow is such a great color for Vanessa, she definitely should wear it more often!
