Can we please have a moment of OMG!-silence for this AH!-mazing Balmain blazer? Consider me obsessed big time. If there ever existed something such as the perfect blazer, this gold-buttoned double-breasted navy wool-twill blazer which comes with Balmain’s signature razor-sharp silhouette would definitely be one of them. Just take a look at how gorgeous and effortlessly elegant all the beautiful ladies below look in their Balmain-adorned outfit ensembles. Perfection! I’d even be willing to splurge on a classic fashion staple such as this blazer, but its price of $2.385 is just beyond any common sense. My credit card does not approve.

Update (10/11/2017): Spotted this super fab Balmain inspired military-style blazer by M&S Collection at Marks & Spencer today. It only has 2 instead of 3 rows of gold buttons, but the overall design is still very reminiscent of the Balmain jacket above. Price: £65.

Loft Double Breasted Blazer

Update (01/24/2017): Also found this navy double breasted blazer at Loft and it instantly reminded me of the Balmain one. It misses a few buttons to qualify as a designer dupe, but if you’re fine with a Balmain “inspired” design, this $128 blazer would be probably a good buy.

Mango “Boton” Double-Breasted Blazer

Update (12/06/2016): OK, so I spotted this beautiful Balmain dupe at Mango and just had to share this gorgeous nautical inspired navy blazer with you! Actually, I liked this one so much I ordered it for myself a couple days ago and I’m so happy I did because it’s the best Balmain dupe I’ve found and owned yet! Definitely worth the $79.99 price tag (sale price)! If you like this blazer, you better don’t wait too long as I’m pretty sure this beauty of a blazer will sell out in no time!

Banana Republic Nautical-Style Basketweave Blazer

My personal favorite Balmain look for less alternative is this nautical basketweave blazer I discovered at Banana Republic recently. All the important Balmain details are there: a fitted silhouette, double-breasted front, gold buttons and a beautiful deep navy color. BR’s version has a couple differences such as a different material, but they’re rather minor and overall it’s still a gorgeous and budget-friendly alternative for the pricey Balmain blazer. Especially so if you take advantage of the 50% off sale promotion which is currently running at Banana Republic because it cuts down the price of this blazer down from $169.99 to $84.99 (that’s a saving of $2.300,01 compared to the real deal). Super steal deal alert!

Veronica Beard Hugh + Leon Dickey Jacket

Now these nautical blazers (“Hugh“, $645, and “Leon“, $545) by Veronica Beard are probably the closest matches to the real deal Balmain in terms of overall design, but they do cost more than $500, so they rank as my current second favorite Balmain dupes. You would save a whopping $1.840 by opting for the Veronica Beard version though, so I still consider this blazer to be a pretty good bargain nonetheless!

Brooks Brothers Wool Double-Breasted Blazer

Another gorgeous blazer and pretty awsome Balmain alternative is this lovely navy blazer by Brooks Brothers. The key details are spot-on Balmain, Brooks Brothers is known for their high-quality tailoring and did I mention this beauty of a blazer is currently on sale for $274 (was $548). Sure, it’s not a steal at that price, but it might be worth the investment because a navy blazer is so versatile.

Vero Moda Military Blazer

And here’s a little little something for all you European Balmain lovers out there! These military-inspired double-breasted blazers by Vero Moda are a pretty spot-on Balmain dupe for less than €50 (sale price!). You’re welcome.

J.Crew Double-Breasted Blazer

Not available in navy, but these blazers by J.Crew also reminded me of the Balmain one above because the design and silhouette are so similar. If you’re all about the navy color, check out this other J.Crew blazer which I found at J.Crew Factory for $79 (sale price!).

Is there anyone out there who wasn’t crazy about some aspect of the Burberry Prorsum fall/winter 2010 collection? From the draped, ruched mini dresses, to the over-the-knee boots, to the completely delicious cropped shearling jackets—it was a sensation at the minimum, iconic at the max. And you can see why. The Shearling Funnel Neck Aviator Jacket looks like a cloud in the form of a clothing. If I could justify $3.5k for it, I so would.

Banana Republic Leather Sherpa Bomber Jacket

Update (11/15/2016): More than three years after our last Burberry Prorsum jacket steal find, Banana Republic decided to revive the (faux) shearling aviator trend and came up with an amazing Burberry-inspired alternative. It’s quite expensive at $1.400 (retail price), but also so, so gorgeous much so more affordable than the real deal’s $3.595, don’t you agree?

It seems that every celebrity at one point or another is seen flaunting around in glamorous Louboutins. Whether it’s the sophisticated high heel or a classic flat, Christian Louboutin has become a staple in the closets of the A-listers. The “Pigalle Plato” Platform Pumps are no different as the design is impeccably exhibited with versatility, in an uptown or downtown manner. The platform adds further height to the elevated stature of the shoe contributing to the elegance. Unfortunately, I don’t have $795 to spend on these beautiful shoes, but the alternative below is quite dazzling.

This “Octavia” Tri-Tone Sheath Dress by Stella McCartney has been very popular among the celebrity world. And who can blame them? Incorporating a subtle color-blocking design, the black panels along the side of the dress are slimming and extremely flattering for every body type. This dress was made to accentuate a woman’s curves and figure, and creates an enviable hourglass shape by creating a slimming silhouette effect. As this dress can be a miracle, the price tag definitely shows for that, too! However, we found an amazing alternative that’ll do the same trick for a whole lot less money!

Lipsy x Amy Childs “Laura” Colour Block Dress

If this is not an almost identical look-a-like, then I am not sure what is. The Lipsy “Laura” Colour Block Dress is just as figure flattering as its designer counterpart, and with the same color-blocking effect creates an illusion of an extremely slim figure while still accentuating one’s curves in all the right places. And though I absolutely adore the tri-color version, this dress is also available in all black, which I can imagine to be beautiful but almost deceiving the purpose of the color-blocking effect. You can call this beauty yours for a mere price of £65 (approx. $100)!

Fabulous shoe, meet my readers; readers, meet fabulous shoe aka the Shark-Lock Ankle Strap High Heel Sandals from Givenchy. I’ll always have a soft spot for Givenchy (and their shoes in particular), but this sleek, perfectly shaped high heel with the iconic shark-lock clasp that has become sort of Givenchy’s signature detail lately, has probably been my absolute favorite from their last couple of collections. You just can’t go wrong with a fabulous like this one, assuming you can foot the bill, of course. In this case, $975.

Not feeling like spending 1k on shoes? Well, how about $38.99 instead? Steve Madden‘s “MAYVEN” ankle strap heels will give you a very similar Givenchy look for roughly 4% of the real deal’s price. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
