The Look For Less: Balmain Crystal-Embellished Jacket

Balmain at ShopStyle

This Balmain Crystal-Embellished Jacket ($11,410) is undeniably fly, but besides Beyonce and a couple other celebs, I don't know anyone willing to fork over the dough for such a trendy statement piece. I love the kitschy, band-jacket-inspired style, but paying that much is not even a faint possibility . . .

To see the look for less,


Thank goodness we have Target! Not only does this Target Go International Bandleader Vest ($35) cost a fraction of Balmain's design, but the pared down embellishments make it more wearable. The cropped cut is perfect for any badass, Balmain-inspired ensemble. Get it while it's hot!

I look and Michael Jackson springs to mind, that can't possibly be a good thing style-wise.

I love the vest. It was featured earlier this week on Look of the Day and the girl looked great with the vest. The jacket looks like Sgt Pepper...gross.

Eep. Looks like a gross, old marching band uniform from high school circa 1992. I wouldn't wear it if it happened to be free.

If I wanted to dress like Michael Jackson, I would just wear a single glove.

$11K is a ridiculous price for ANY piece of clothing that's not covered in precious jewels. I do like the jacket though and in fact I bought the Target version. It's cute.

Seriously...I was in marching band back in high school and I'm pretty sure our jackets looks EXACTLY like the Balmain jacket...since when did marching band uniforms become trendy?!

Try making it yourself and then 110x more and then see if you feel the price in considerable. ;)

Too trendy. I would never spend $11K on something that is so recognizable.
