The newest Paco Rabanne collection is full of metallic fabrics, asymmetric cuts and unexpected details. 

Since inheriting the brand in 2013, Julien Dossena has revamped its image, bringing it to the forefront of fashion with sports luxe pieces, metallics, and unconventional cuts. 

Fashion-forward, almost space-y looks like these aren't just for the super rich though. Here's how to get Paco Rabanne looks on a college budget - and make them appropriate for class!

slouchy sweater and asymmetric skirt are given an unexpected twist with a pair of blue slip-on shoes.

This look is perfect for casual days, and can easily be taken into the evening merely by swapping the shoes - add a pair of heeled boots and you've got a perfect evening outfit that's still a little unexpected.

Finish with a simple beige polish to match the Paco Rabanne models.

All green is a great alternative to all black, especially in warmer weather. 

The great thing about this look is that it's casual enough for classes, but also appropriate for more formal occasions -- or work if there's a strict dress code -- so it's truly a win-win!

Metallics are always in fashion, and these silver chelsea boots paired with a mesh top and asymmetric skirt are ticking three huge trend boxes in one look. 

I love the idea of this look for a fun night out. Who needs heels when you can wear metallic statement booties?
