This River Island navy blazer looks similar to a designer one costing £1,500

A classic navy blazer is one of those pieces we could all do with having in our wardrobes, especially for autumn. An easy way to look instantly pulled together, you can use this hard-working buy to smarten up simple jeans or wear it over dresses and midi skirts for a polished finish.
So you can bet we were delighted to hear that high street brand River Island is selling a very stylish double-breasted navy blazer that happens to look similar to a cult designer piece by high-end label Balmain – but costs just a fraction of the price.

That's right, while Balmain's chic Double-breasted Wool-Twill Blazer would set you back nearly £1,500, River Island's option is a far more affordable £70.

As you'll see below, both double-breasted jackets come in similar shades of navy and boast gold-toned button detailing.

Of course, there are a few notable differences between the high street and high-end buys – for a start, Balmain's option includes signature padded shoulders, while River Island's doesn't – but we are definitely tempted to invest! 

BUY NOW: Balmain Double-Breasted Wool-Twill Blazer, Selfridges, £1,490 

The River Island jacket is an online exclusive, meaning you won't be able to track it down in store. 

But, lucky for those of us who are keen to invest, it's still available to buy in a number of sizes – from 6-14 – on the brand's website.
