Steal Her Style: Dressing For Paris Couture Week On A High Street Budget

Haute Couture Fashion Week is in full swing this week and while we’re still transfixed by some of our favourite moments, we can’t help but feel a bit sombre that most of the beautiful garments are well outside our spending limitations.

Creating our favourite looks within the limitations of our budget is a bit more exciting though, isn’t it? Besides, who doesn’t love a good challenge? Shop of our favourite couture week looks below, straight from your favourite high street stores.

THE LOOK: THE SHOW-NON-STOPPER

Anya Ziourova, photographed by Phil Oh

For those of you not familiar with Anya Ziourova, she is a stylist and the fashion director of both Tatler Russia and Allure Russia. In other words, miss Ziourova knows a thing or two. She is praised for her pared-back outfits, pieced together from a mix of high and low labels. By pairing a pair of pointed leather kitten heels with an otherwise conventional jeans and T-shirt combination, Ziourova has made this ensemble effortlessly swanky and, importantly, comfortable. 12/10.

1.Vero Moda long faux fur jacket, €102.34 at Asos, 2. ribbed cotton tee, €6 at Monki.com, 3. Nora light retro jeans, €70 at drdenimjeans.com, 4. juicy V-Cut mules, €34 at Topshop.com, 5. urban classics canvas white belt, €6.90 at Fruugo.ie, 6. tassels pendant earrings, €12.95 at Mango

THE LOOK: PARISIAN-CHIC

What is it that makes French style so desirable? Perhaps it’s the simplicity, charm and elegance. Okay, not all French girls were berets, but hats as a whole are symbolic of Parisian chic. And how striking does stylist and creative consultant Brie Welch look wearing a subtle pop of pink? Welch achieved what many fail to do, which is dress weather-appropriately (it rained a lot in Paris this week). We imagine she’s wearing a suave pair of loafers and so have styled our look with leather loafers from Zara, below, along with a modern slogan-print cross-body bag. Makeup remains minimal with a tiny splash of pink lipgloss to enhance the pink beret.

 

 1. lance coat, €107.36 at Rains, 2. pink beret, €17 at River Island, 3. gingham midi dress, €52 at Topshop, 4. leather loafers with pearl beads, €55.95 at Zara, 5. slogan print cross-body, €19.95 at Zara, 6. Stay All Day sheer liquid lipstick, €17.73 at stilacosmetics.com
