Sometimes you just have to go for the knock off. Oops, I mean an “inspired garment.” Balenciaga’s opening S/S 2013 look is one of my favourites of the season — its price tag, not so much. 

Balenciaga S/S 2013; H&M
Okay, maybe not exactly as magical, but the H&M version comes pretty close (at least, that’s what I tell myself). I think these cropped garments are best worn with super high-waisted trousers and skirts.

$29.95 at H&M.
