After countless sneak peeks, rumors, previews and teasers, H&M’s Balmain collection is almost here! Dropping in 250 stores worldwide and online Nov. 5, it would only make sense to feature some of the great items that can fit within a collegiate budget! Personally, I am always trying to find the most stylish and fashion-forward pieces for less. The great thing about this collection is that the price points are all across the board, so there is literally something for everyone! Click the link below to see the five pieces I love and am coveting for under $100
Balmain x H&M Skirt, $59.99
I’m obsessed with this skirt and largely because of the lines. I love the contrast is great the black and white and how this skirt is guaranteed to slim you down with the black on either sides. I would pair this skirt with a form fitting black crop top, colorful pumps, and a clutch.
Balmain x H&M Jacket, $99Even though this is one of the more expensive pieces, it’s the one that I’m the most excited for. Pair this jacket with a distressed pair of boyfriend jeans and black booties, for a chic yet edgy look.
Balmain x H&M Dress, $69.99This dress is another favorite of mine because it provides the perfect amount of sexy. Although the dress includes a high neckline with long sleeves, the silhouette is both formfitting and will prove flattering for a number of body types. Overall, this is would definitely make a great dress during formal season.
Balmain x H&M Pouch, $34.99I’m a definite sucker for pouches. I think they’re one of the best accessories that you can have in your closet, merely due to the fact that you can fit the necessities that you need, all while being simplistic. Red is the color that I’ve chosen, due to it being close to the holiday season, however; this pouch is also available in forest green and navy.
Balmain x H&M Sunglasses, $49.99These sunglasses are another favorite because of the semi-wide rims and gold detail. Although the sunglasses are not Balmain originals, the design team added a luxe touch that allows the shades to look a bit more upscale than the everyday sunglasses you might find in an H&M bin.
