If you are like me you are looking forward to springtime. I can’t wait for longer, brighter days and warmer weather when you can got out without an overcoat. It will be here soon, so I put together a spring outfit that you can wear high or low. This high-priced designer look was inspired by an easy-to-wear Balenciaga oversized shirt, logo jeans and sleek black mules. I couldn’t stop there, so I shopped Balenciaga added a bright pink handbag and a cool pair of sunglasses. We don’t recommend wearing one designer head-to-toe, but in the case of high-low styling, I thought, why not? Besides my dream of getting locked inside Balenciaga and having to choose pieces to wear, this is a good way to find a low price look that is cohesive since it is from one designer brand. You can also pick a piece or two from my Balenciaga spring outfit (how about those sunglasses?) on the left and mix them with my low-price picks on the right. That’s the beauty of high low styling.
The Balenciaga Spring Outfit High Low
When you think of a spring outfit, a floral dress may come to mind, but I think this look is one that you will wear more often.
The Cool Oversized Cotton Shirt
This cool blue striped oversized shirt is easy and breezy for spring and and makes quite a statement on its own. It’s a classic menswear look taken up a notch with its tunic styling. The Balenciaga oversized striped cotton-poplin shirt is impeccably tailored for $950. But leave it to H&M to make a stylish oversized cotton shirt in blue stripe for $24.99. You may need to iron it more often, but you can save a lot of money.
YES! I LOOK FORWARD TO #GROWINGYOUNGER

The Washed Black Denim Jeans
You will get a lot of wear out of a pair of straight leg washed denim jeans in black for spring. Go high end with these Balenciaga logo print straight leg jeans (and you won’t have to tell anyone who made them) for $750. Or you can wear these H&M vintage high waist jeans for only $29.99 and be mysterious.
The Black Mules
Just when I though I was tired of mules, Balenciaga shows us these sleek and cool low heel mules. They are worth the investment of $995, because you can wear them almost every day (Cost Per Wear)! Slip them on with jeans, pants, skirts, long shorts, and dresses. However I found these equally drool-worthy Aeyde Jess Mules for $320. I know, that is still a bit expensive, but it is only one third of the price of the Balenciaga mules, and they are less severe looking.
The Classic Handbag In Pink
I just had to add a Balenciaga Neo bag to this spring outfit. For 2021, bright pink is one of the hottest shades. This classic shaped Balenciaga Neo Classic City tote for $1850 is mini-sized, so you can carry it everywhere with only the things you really need (phone, wallet, lip-gloss, mask). But if hot pink is too trendy for you to invest a lot of cash, this Langx mini top handle bag from Amazon is only $19.86.
The Spring Sunglasses
This look is completed with a pair of modern shaped sunglasses. These Balenciaga Round-frame sunglasses for $350 will look fabulous on a lot of face shapes and have bright red tips. They are little works of art and simply gorgeous to look at. But you can get the same cool look with these BP. oval cat eye sunglasses for only $15. And then you won’t mind it if you loose them!
