There aren’t a ton of pieces in my wardrobe that I consider splurge-worthy outside of shoes and handbags. However, the Balmain blazer is one of those iconic pieces that’s absolutely worth every penny (you can read more on that here). Although it’s pricey, I have to say the cost per wear becomes extremely low given its versatility. I love how it dresses up every outfit and works for any occasion whether that’s a business meeting, date night, or brunch date. If you’ve been wanting that iconic luxe look for less, I’m happy to share that it’s not impossible. In fact, I went through several blazers that resembled the Balmain blazer before I gave into it. While there’s no doubt that the Balmain blazer offers the most flawless fit and aesthetic, there are some alternatives that won’t break the bank. Below, I rounded up the best Balmain-inspired blazers you can buy right now.
There's much to love about this blazer from the sharp tailoring and strong shoulders to the nipped-in waist and gold buttons. This was the first designer blazer I owned and I've been obsessed ever since.
