Luxe for Less

Parisian Chic from Topshop


Hollywood Glam from River Island

1. Vintage-inspired and highly collectible, these shades are the best alternative to Dior and Gucci. $39.

2. Only $66, this cute and glamorous V-neck metallic baby doll blouse is an absolute steal.

3. Pair the top with these extremely comfy and modern wide leg trousers. Marc Jacobs would have been proud. $186.

4. This luscious and practical hold-all handbag is certainly a Chloe-inspired one, but at only a fraction of the price. $93.

5. This razzle-contrast bind shoes are the most luxe item here, and a perfect end to a perfect fit. $249.

  1. Even Lindsay Lohan will kill for this fierce pair of shades. Paparazzis, beware! $45.

3. This beautifully tailored black pants are the perfect match for the blouse, and instantly ups the glam factor. $89.

4. This special edition silver metallic bag can easily pass off as a Prada, and is the perfect accessory to complete the look. $69.

5. Bling bling has never looked more haute than with this pair of silver studded heels. $175.

While we love the sleek and striking getup from River Island, it’s the effortless combination of luxe shoes and superior comfy pants that make Topshop the one to beat.
