Balmain designer (and BFF to the fash pack) Olivier Rousteing caused quite a stir when he sent his leopard print, pony skin pencil skirt down the catwalk. It had barely walked off the runway before the celebs put their orders in, and obviously Kim K was one of the first customers. She was nearly pipped to the post by Victoria Beckham, however, who stepped out in hers a mere few days after Kim paired hers with a Balmain top to boot.
But while fashion’s glitterati has been snapping up the £4,238 version, we’ve been tracking down a tribute worthy of your approval. And look- we found this doppelganger from Damned Delux, available at Thehut.com- and it’s only £15! Yep, that’s basically your own ‘it’ buy for the price of a takeaway which, considering this skirt’s surprising versatility, results in some serious cost-per-wear potential.
Rock it like Kim and opt for a contrasting print- try a classic Breton, and add a waist-cinching belt for Kardashian proportions. We’re also pretty keen to make this little number our new workwear essential. We’ll be tucking in a white shirt and adding a tailored jacket on top.
Want to wear it like Posh? You’ll just have to invest in this week’s mag to see more tips on how to pull off a pencil like the celebs. But in the meantime, you can shop this could-be-catwalk hero piece by clicking on our link below. Now isn’t that good news?
