Style on a budget: Balenciaga Fall 2007 Look

The fashion world is crazy about this season's Balenciaga collection. Everyone wants or speaks about those schoolboy blazers, fringe ethnic scarves and "patchwork" dresses. I must admit that I'm not a Nicolas Ghesquière fan but I love the multicultural feeling of this collection and the fact that finally his collection looks wearable. And those preppy looks...
As everyone else dreams about the navy blazer I'm more attracted by the white look. I must have a thing on white this season.

The schoolboy blazer is the key to the whole outfit so look for a two buttons, straight and fit one. Jodhpurs don't look good even on models, (I mean what would happen if they get their hands out of the pockets? I thought so too) so look for looser skinny white jeans. As for those sandals...hmm...where I live sandals and cold weather don't go well toghether. Ankle boots are cozier. Balenciaga ReplicaBalenciaga Replica
