The Broke Girl’s Guide to Balmain

Balmain is back ladies and gents and winning our hearts all over again. Last night’s Fall 2016 Paris show was swoon-worthy, from the suede and feather accents to a blonde Kendall Jenner and a brunette Gigi Hadid.

Since some of us can’t afford the luxury of a signature Balmain piece, here are the trends you can implement into your wardrobe without breaking the bank

Suede Thigh-High Boots

These suede, beige, and higher than usual thigh high boots are amazing. Every city girl should own a pair. Wear them with any skirt or dress just like Hadid did on the runway. Not an exact Balmain replica but close enough to still break necks, are Jeffrey Campbell’s Taupe Perouze Thigh-High Boot.

Feathered Skirts

Feathers are taking over, which have always been a Balmain staple. Kylie Jenner’s Balmain x Yeezy outfit also included a feather skirt, much like Nasty Gal’s Birds of a Feather Mini Skirt. A feather jacket isn’t always appropriate so instead take it down a notch with an equally as fabulous feathered skirt.

Gold Waist Belts

Nothing says Balmain like a signature golden waist belt. You can get this look for a lot less with ASOS’s Full Metal Waist Belt.

Bustier Style

Many of the pieces on the Balmain runway utilized a bustier style top. Also present were, what looked like, wasit trainers. Either way, there was definitely a lingerie vibe to the collection. This Nasty Gal Bust Out Lace Dress features a bustier design while also keeping it classy.

Velvet High-Waisted Pants
