It’s always exciting to have a new store in town and the soon to open Michael Kors on Edinburgh’s Multrees Walk is no exception. Offering consumers a classically sporty yet glamourous collection, the brand is sure to be a popular attraction on one of Edinburgh’s best shopping streets. Much as we at Mallzee adore the designs, often the price tags are a little out of realistic reach. So we thought we’d put together a few more affordable alternatives to ensure you can get the look without breaking the bank.
Sometimes described as minimalistic, Kors’ designs often focus on classic pieces cut from the highest quality fabric. Luckily for us, this is an area which the British high street is beginning to excel in- offering plenty of cheaper alternatives to the labels high fashion price tags.
Michael Kors Classics
This season, the Michael Kors brand focuses on some strong features- bold stripes, block colours and simple silhouettes are all evident. As always, accessories are particularly strong. Chunky watches, classic sunglasses and oversized bags perfectly compliment the main lines.
Don’t blow the budget
For a cheaper take on these classic styles, look no further than Mallzee’s favourite brands. Block colours continue to be strong at Mango, and this double breasted woollen coat makes for a great alternative to the Michael Kors classic- better hurry though as it is currently on sale for £49.99.
Spring colours are also strong at Topshop where we hunted down this bargain knit- a snip at only £30. Style with white denim shorts for the perfect take on Michael Kors easy summer style.
Although it’s fair to say that you are never far from a striped garment of any form nowadays, there is great variation in the success of such pieces. To eminate laid back California cool, look to ASOS. Their loose striped knit jumper dress, £38, is the perfect piece for those long summer days and nights.
Finally, don’t forget a statement watch to finish your look. A brand classic, many retailers look to Michael Kors for inspiration when designing their own timepieces. For a light spring look, we love this rose gold watch with clear strap, also from ASOS, at £28.
Happy budget Kors-ing everyone!
