Investing in a pair of designer shoes is the ultimate treat. But sometimes, throwing your cash at a trending design may seem frivolous. So, we put a question to our editors to help you make a decision about your next investment: are those Balenciaga sneakers worth our hard-earned cash?   


SPEND  

Ok so the fact that this is a sneaker means it’s not a ridiculous shoe that will only work for certain occasions. You can literally wear sneakers anywhere. The comfort factor is a big deal here too – the Balenciaga iteration of these chunky shoes is well crafted and built to withstand the test of time making it worth the investment.  

Then there’s the branding. If you want people to know you’re rocking an IT-shoe rather than a designer dupe, these sneakers are worth splashing your cash on. Just make sure you get your cost per wear and figure out how many outfits they’ll complement before you make your purchase; thinking about color combos is key.    

SAVE  

Balenciaga’s iconic panelled sneakers have been re-imagined and re-produced in many affordable versions. Most recently River Island has created a copycat design that bears an uncanny resemblance to the original. The great thing about investing in a high street iteration is obviously that you can enjoy the look for less, but there are other benefits too.

Being able to rock your kicks without fearing for their safety is liberating. With an affordable pair, you’ll be able to wear your sneakers all season long, maxing them out with as many outfits as you like – no matter the occasion or the weather.

This summer is all about the humble polka dot – the classic trend is having a moment and we’re not mad about it. 


Polka dots ruled last season’s shows with the likes of Jacquemus, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy showcasing dotty pieces in Paris. We saw beautiful ruffled tops, silk dresses and A-line skirts adorned with spots and now, the polka dot trend is still going strong with Balenciaga, Self-Portrait, Mary Katrantzou, Dior and Giorgio Armani rocking them for SS18.

Street style favourites like Farfetch’s Yasmin Sewell and blogger Camille Charrière have taken to stepping out in dots and we’ve taken a few style tips from them on how to wear the trend this season…

For after dark 

Follow Rodarte’s lead for spring and opt for dainty polka dots on fluffy tulle gowns. Soften prints and patterns with swooping silhouettes, sweetheart-neck dresses and soft fabrics in classic black and white. Just add stilettos and gold-toned accessories.

Get shirty

Pair a slip-style dotty dress with a fresh white shirt for an office-ready look. Opt for a ruffled Victoriana style or mix it up with a menswear-style piece or off-shoulder design. Add cool mules and a smart tote to finish the look.

Maximalism

Channel Jason Wu vibes by going for asymmetric silhouettes, ruffled styles, wrap-fronts and cold shoulders. Clashing spots and bright colors are great for elevating your look too. Polka dots don’t always have to be black and white. 

Go oversized

Opt for XXL spots with a punk-rock twist á la Junya Watanabe and dial your dress down with a pair of cool sneakers, a basket bag and a stack of cool bangles.

The edition of the Ocean's 11 franchise hits theatres tomorrow across the US. We're expecting stellar performances by an all-female cast including Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and Cate Blanchett an award-winning actress who thanks to her many accolades, has had plenty of opportunities to hone her red-carpet style. 


Cate Blanchett often avoids the safe route and goes with pieces from the likes of Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane and Armani. She always put her unique stamp on a look by making structural silhouettes and bold detailing work to her advantage. 

Her most memorable looks? 

Hands down the lemon Valentino design she rocked when accepting her Oscar, the intricately-designed John Galliano dress that she sported at her first Academy Awards and more recently, her killer pastel suits at Cannes Film Festival. 

We love Cate Blanchett's style so we’ve put together a few tips on how to recreate it, whatever your budget… 

Red carpet 

Go for a sweeping evening gown with an exposed back and gold-toned detailing. Finish your look with delicate sandal heels, a simple clutch and a set of drop earrings for pure elegance. 

Off duty 

To copy Cate’s  her off duty look  keep it classic and practical. She usually goes for a pair of fitted pants, a blazer and shirt paired with a neutral  mule or sneaker, so try muted separates and tailoring with a sports-luxe twist for yourself. Want to get more of Cate's style? 

Head to our gallery for more snaps of her red carpet and off-duty look sand shop our favourite Cate-inspired pieces from the edit below...

On the first Monday of every May we eagerly await the red-carpet glam squad who’ll assemble at the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The annual costume gala is only a few days away and we're buzzing with anticipation. 


This year the Gala will be co-hosted by Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace and the undisputed queen of red carpet events, Rihanna – we’re still not over the train on the mustard Guo Pei gown she sported in 2015. The theme for the 70th anniversary of fashion's biggest fund-raising event is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination; a pretty controversial subject in comparison to past themes. 

China: Through the Looking Glass, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, Punk: Chaos to Couture and of course, last year's Rei Kawkubo: Comme des Garçons were among the iconic themes of Galas past. This time, Fashion and the Catholic Imagination will focus on religious depictions showcased across three galleries including the Met Cloisters. 

The exhibition will feature 50 pieces from the Sistine Chapel – including robes, rings, tiaras and other accessories from the 18th to the early 21st century. As for fashion, guests will be treated to a viewing of 150 religiously-inspired ensembles from houses like Balenciaga, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and of course Versace.

Whether you’re pro or anti yellow, there’s no denying the colour is everywhere this season. From Prada and Ganni to Balenciaga and Christopher Kane, the pop-bright tones of sunshine yellow, deep mustard, egg yolk and pale lemon dominated the runway for SS18. 


Even Beyonce put her spin on the colour in her custom Balmain stage outfits at Coachella this month while celebs from Gal Godot to Emma Stone have been spotted rocking sunflower tones both on the red carpet and off duty. 

We wouldn’t blame you for being hesitant to take the plunge into head-to-toe yellow – it’s an acquired taste after all – so our Editors have put together a round-up of the best pieces to help you nail the trend. 

From cool yellow accessories to simple stripes and statement jumpsuits, these are the best ways to rock the yellow trend day or night, whatever your style.

There's definitely something about the allure of the corset. They bring to mind burlesque, Victoriana and the lace-up body-con styles made famous by the Kardashian/Jenner clan. In any case, a little goes a long way and a corset lends even the most casual looks poise and definition. Coincidentally, the classic corset is one of the strongest trends of the season. In fact, the style set were rocking corsets last season too; cinching their jackets, dresses and shirts with lace-up accessories. 


For SS18, designers have revisited the trend and paired impressive corsets with contemporary dresses and T-shirts. Take Isabel Marant, who took casual double denim to new heights with a white corset and infused monochrome looks with pops of color via corset belts. Over at Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia juxtaposed bold, over the top shoulder silhouettes with cinched waists. While Loewe showcased one of the best selling corsets adopted by editors and influencers from London to Paris. 

How to style a corset? 

For an understated look, try pairing a simple white tee with a cool corset or lace-up belt, or cinch your coat or blazer at the waist for a twist on spring layering – a classic trench works wonders for this. Or for something to take you from day to night with ease, team a corset with a dress or button-down shirt and your favorite jeans. Feeling more glam? Transform a blazer into a dress by adding a corset and add just add heels.

So I'm a little be late to the party, or fashion show, here but how cool is Balenciaga's S/S campaign?! The shots that first surfaced on social media capture mock paparazzi photos. It's such a fun idea - perhaps inspired by Yeezy? I love the nuance that the clothes are so exclusive we're trying to catch a glimpse through the lens. Also, I am obsessed with this outfit. I love the red tartan this is something I am always attracted to and the shoes are fabulous. Image: Agence Bestimage

With Spring finally gracing us with some appropriate temperatures it's time to bring out one of our favourite 2018 footwear trends: the mules. Even though a few street stylers have been donning the trend even during the winter months paired with socks or fishnet stockings now it's the time for the more hesitant of the bunch to sport it sans socks too. 


The high end such as Saint Laurent Mansur Gavriel, Chloé, Saks, Bloomingdale's and Balenciaga are offering beautiful creations in an array of silhouettes and colour hues. However, there are many high street brands serving equally eye-pleasing styles from Zara, to Topshop, Nasty Gal and Boohoo that your pocket will thank you for. 

If this is your first attempt into sporting mules opt for the sock free option and style it with a pair of cropped jeans, that will show off your shoe choice and elongate your legs at the same time. Finish your look with a rainbow-patterned tee (very on trend for this Spring/ Summer season) a light denim jacket and a plastic accessory such as a handbag or hat. 

For an evening look pair your mules with a frilly long spring dress, a discreet clutch and a blanket scarf. Put your hair up in a messy bun add a bold lip and add long chandelier earrings to accentuate your look. 

Whatever your choice, mules are extremely versatile so you can style them with ease with items that are already hanging in your closet.

This may be the year of the Scrunchie return. In addition to the recent scrunchie craze, there's an equal craving for over-the-top headbands in bold colours like red and royal blue. Those kindergarten hair-accessories are inspired by a need to return to a more naive era but in all honesty, they're just a fun way to accessorise. 


Fashion followers have welcomed back one of the most polarising accessories of the past few decades. In the 90s and naughties, there was a common consensus that scrunchies are dated even kitsch. They led a life as a definitive faux pas by the mainstream culture but were also considered hipster material by labels like American Apparel or Retro Vintage. 

But recently, scrunchies have been resurfacing as a bonified trend, a runoff effect of the 80s  revival. The renaissance trend of the 80s is about to become fully adopted by popping up to various collections. For example, Urban Outfitters has offered a wide display of different types of scrunchies varying from velvet to satin. Over at Balenciaga, their chouchou versions are made from lambskin and priced at almost $200. 

Amidst the emerging scrunchies craze, a new luxe scrunchie brand was introduced. Comfort Objects is an accessories label based in Denmark that transforms vintage Hermès scarves into silk scarves, priced at $112. Insta - favourite Ganni adored for the rainbow stripes jumper, white cowboy boots and polka dot pieces presented his own scrunchie offering. Just this week, blogger Camille Charriere snapped a mirror selfie sporting a red floral scrunchie from the Copenhagen brand costing no more than $20. 

Match the scrunchie pattern with your dress for maximum effect or opt for a red accessory to tie in the outfit. These accessories are best employed with a muted outfit like a creme coloured victorian blouse jeans and flats.
