How To Wear Haute Couture In Real Life

Haute couture, although seemingly unobtainable, is definitely a look we can wear in everyday life. Giambattista’s SS14 couture show is a great place to find inspiration. Giamba’s show was filled with gorgeous embellishments that decorated necklines and bejeweled dresses and tops. Although most of us won’t be snapping up these one-of-a-kind couture frocks, there’s no reason you can’t integrate this style into your wardrobe now. Look for tops with gorgeous, couture-inspired details that you can wear with your skinny jeans. Get ready, get set, couture!
