The latest fashion collaboration that has taken the world by storm and has already sold out is the brainchild between two clothing powerhouses, H&M and Balmain. With models such as Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn, and Gigi Hadid rocking affordable (well, it is affordable if you’ve ever tried to buy something from Balmain) pieces from the line, the glitzy and bold collection is definitely not for the faint of heart.

The hyped up collaboration’s items are selling out like hotcakes, with some even popping up at eBay, and now that you have yours, what’s next? Are you at a loss on how you can wear it in the real world? Fret not, because below are looks you can recreate and wear every day using items from the Balmain x H&M Collection!


Make it pop with black 

Monochrome outfits always make statement pieces pop, and in this case, it’s the Leather and Faux Fur Jacket! To make this gorgeous jacket stand out and turn heads, wear something neutral underneath and on your feet so as not to grab attention. Make sure your accessories are minimal, even your purse, and you will look like you’re strutting down a runway wherever you go!
Add some fun to your work outfits

We all know that work clothes can be bland due to the strict clothing rules expected in the workplace. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear something bold! For more relaxed work settings, bend the rules by rocking this beautiful Beaded Velvet Jacket worn with a V-neck tee and a pair of suede boots, for a smart-casual-fashion-forward outfit that every stylish person would approve of!
Bring back the vest

When was the last time you saw someone wear a vest? Well, get ready for its return with Balmain x H&M’s Vest with Satin Lapels that will add a professional touch to any outfit you wear! It’s large size makes it perfect for any outfit under the Sun!
Be edgy

The Draped Silk Skirt may look scary to wear every day, but it’s no different than a regular skater or bandeau skirt (except it’s not that regular, because this is made of silk). A fitted V-neck tee and an edgy leather jacket will easily take you from day to night just by changing up your flats for some heels!
Go casual with jeans

For an outfit perfect for the girl on the go, play with androgyny with the Leather Jacket and T-shirt with Flock-print Motif, which will be complemented nicely with some ripped jeans, white sneakers, and a large fedora. Add a large satchel to complete your outfit, and you will be good to go!
