I have to admit H&M's collaboration with Balmain did have something to do with my newfound excitement for this collection. Of course, the clothes are amazing regardless of the hype: Olivier Rousteing's Fall 2015 collection is filled with fall-perfect colors, plus everything from bright accessories to gold accents, wide-leg pants, and more. J'adore!

Are you lusting over Balmain's Fall 2015 RTW collection as much as we are? Keep reading for three budget-friendly outfits inspired by Balmain Fall 2015:

1. October Fest

This is my favorite look from the collection. There's something so elegant and chic about this ensemble, despite its in-your-face color palette and swingy fringe. I love the little details, like the shimmer in the blouse and the simple gold accents on the model's shoes. They make this look truly special.

Products: Blouse, Belt, Pants, Flats

For this look, grab an orange blouse with bell sleeves for a boho flair. Pair your blouse with wide-leg pants featuring gold buttons along the side pockets. Slip into black embroidered flats, then finish off the look with an elastic waist belt with gold detailing.

2. Grey Genie

I was drawn to this look because of the simplicity of the grey coat. It's such a perfect fall piece! Of course, no Balmain look is boring; the contrasting bold-toned accessories make this look anything but basic.

Stay warm in a cozy gray wool blend coat. Wear it over a dress that's shorter than the coat to channel the Balmain look. Then fasten a yellow belt around your waist. (This one gives me Blair Waldorf vibes!) Add sleek pointed toe heels with a bright purple snake texture, then grab a burnt orange cross-body bag (that actually turns into a clutch) before you head out the door.

3. Regal Robe

Balmain makes the robe look ultra-chic in this look, sported by our model favorite Gigi Hadid. This look is super stylish but also seems like it'd be incredibly comfortable - major bonus points in our book! 

Get the Look:

Products: Coat, Flats, Bag, Pants

Start with a black silky trench coat, worn over any simple black top (not shown). The trench mimics the Balmain robe while being a more versatile wardrobe investment. Then slip into a pair of navy blue wide-leg pants. Remove the polished gold-tone strap of the orange cross-body bag and carry it as a clutch. Complete the look with embroidered pointy toe flats.
