Playing the High/Low Game

August 6, 2012

I came across a high/low template in Polyvore a little while ago and I knew I just had to play around with it. I took inspiration from current summer trends – denim cut-offs, polka dots, scallop edges and floral denim – to create high-end and affordable looks. Which do you prefer?

High: Isabel Marant Etoile Rider t-shirt, $130 + Pierre Balmain frayed jean shorts, $305 + Isabel Marant Marcela Borges sneakers, $230 = $665

Low: Kookai t-shirt, $30 + H&M denim shorts, $24 + Converse Chuck Taylor hi-top sneakers, $51 = $105


High: Marni polka dot dress, $450 (on sale) + Alexander Wang red leather clutch, $670 + Kate Spade Gertie slingback pumps with bow, $185 (on sale) = $1305

Low: polka dot dress, $54 + Red Storm envelope clutch, $32 + Unlisted shoes with bow, $42 = $128


High: Chloe scallop triangle bikini, $250 + Karen Walker black Fluro sunglasses, $285 + Valentino flip flops, $300 = $835

Low: Xhiliration scallop bikini from Target, $14 + black sunglasses from Target, $13 + Steve Madden tropic flip flops with bow, $30 = $83


High: Current/Elliott The Stiletto jeans in grey floral, $310 + Emilio Pucci python leather Marquisa mini bag, $965 + Woman by Common espadrilles, $385 = $1660

Low: Almost Famous black floral skinny jeans, $35 + Nine West mini crossbody bag, $20 + TOMS classic black canvas shoes, $34 = $89


All prices in Canadian dollars.

    This is NUTS!!! Jordana I don’t know how you do this but the matches are pretty much the same outfit! Amazing finds. And they’re as cute only about, oh, several HUNDREDS of dollars less! I’m blown away. Amazing.
