If you’re going to buy luxury brand goods, you need to select key pieces. When it comes to Balmain there are two must have that we recommend: 1) the Balmain blazer 2) the logo tank top or t shirt.
Clearly the blazer is more of an investment piece than the tank top or T-shirt. But if you’re smart, you’ll find these things on sale like the Balmain – Double-breasted Wool-twill Blazer – White • Balmain • $1,470 or the red one. White is still trending right now so pair the blazer with a white top, light jeans, and white boots, and you’ll look super chic in this luxury brand, high street, street style look.
However to get the London street style look of our New York Personal Stylist graduate, select the Balmain fitted tank tops and pair it with a Balmain blazer and leather trousers for a chic yet up-to-date edgy, classic look.
However if Balmain is not in your budget, then we have a few ASOS top picks for you to get the look with the leather trousers. Noticed that her trousers fit closely to her waist, but they don’t have to be like skinnies for a more updated fresh look. Pairing something fitted with something a little more loose gives the outfit balance. Add some black boots to this look, in her case it’s probably Chanel, and you’re all set!
So again it’s perfectly fine mixing luxury goods with high street brands to get a street style look. It’s just best to buy the luxury goods as investment pieces. Typically investment pieces are like blazers. That said, you can get a Balmain look jacket without spending the Balmain price.
