Ugly Is The New Black: How To Get The Balenciaga Look!

It doesn't have to cost $3000 to look kitsch.


2017 has been the year of big ugly statements – and we're not just talking about Donald Trump's presidency or Taylor Swift's new album. Fashion has undergone a veritable aesthetic rebirth. Where we once sought to look Scandinavian-sleek in a black turtleneck, leather boots, a waist bag and perhaps a beanie, we now want to dress in three different prints at once combined with color blocking tights and weird provincial hair accessories. Having said that, if your aim was to always be up to date with the latest fashion statements, you'd be fine about looking like a mix between a cigarette-smoking 60 year-old, a heroin-shooting trailer park teen and an '80s club chick. Unfortunately these looks are hella expensive these days, so we did the dirty work for you and found some affordable alternatives!

Here they are: three price-appropriate Balenciaga looks!
