When you think of haute couture, are dresses the first thing that comes to your mind? Not all of you may know this, but other categories come under haute couture as well for example elaborate blouses, denim jeans, extravagant jewelry pieces, or corset belts. However, we are not saying that these pieces are not easy to wear. For instance, ruffled tops can be slightly difficult to carry. It might be difficult to wear them for long hours. But wearing such outfits does not mean that they can be worn to red-carpet events. These outfit examples that will be explained later can easily be worn casually.

All high-end brands like Chanel, Dior, and Prada create ‘over the top’ haute couture haute couture dresses but they are also known for their casual clothing pieces. You might have seen or heard about Chanel’s famous tweed jacket. It’s a woolen jacket that can be worn to work or a formal gathering. This jacket has been worn by several celebrities, influencers, and common people. Maybe we think that this haute couture can be worn in real life because we have seen influencers doing the same. This is just one example of comfortable haute couture. Other examples are ruffled tops; you can pair them with basic straight jeans and a pair of stilettos. These tops might look extra from the outside but if you know how to style them, then it won’t seem that big of a deal. Ruffled tops are elaborate in nature so you should likely style them with basic jeans and accessories. However, they are not the most comfortable to wear as it can be difficult to eat or move around with them.  

Such brands design denim jeans as well that have illustrations painted or printed over them; they can be easily styled with basic tops or blouses. Even though haute couture can be worn in real life, nonetheless, it’s still expensive. Who said that if we can’t afford them, we can’t keep up with the latest haute couture collections?
