The New York, London, Paris and Milan fashion weeks are now over and we go back to our daily lives with budgets unable to handle all designer looks we’ve been awwwing about. Right?
Wrong. As the Countess of Glamour explained, it’s all about style. The best fashion is undoubtedly going to be high-end designer, but style can save your budget anytime. So, I set myself a task to pull out four Tru’ Fall 2014 designer looks and show you how to create the style with less.
Tru’ Look 1: Oscar De La Renta
I started with one of my all time favourites, Oscar De La Renta. I was looking for a feminine simple style and I love the peacock skirt but retailing for just under $2,000 it’s a bomb to our budgets. You may not be able to have the skirt, but what’s stopping you from having the style? I’ve put together an outfit for you for a lot less.
Tru’ Look 2: Maison Valentino
I was looking through pre-fall 2014 designer styles that incorporated vintage style but with a modern twist. I love the new butterfly motif at Maison Valentino skirt on the right below. So again, I set myself a task to get you the look for less.
Tru’ Look 3: Giorgio Armani
Masculine styles have been quite prominent among designer looks. I like the Armani look below because it is quite feminine in its masculinity. So, again my task was to find you a similar look for A LOT less. In fact, for just under $200.
Tru’ Look 4: Bottega Veneta
Last but not least, my eye caught quite a few bright neon colours and effortless street-style black and white looks. I found this style from Bottega Veneta that incorporates bright yellow with black and white. Most importantly, still keeps the outfit serious enough to wear to work on a Friday and go straight out. The dress is, of course, unique to Bottega Veneta – but who says you can’t steal the look by breaking it down into a sweater & a skirt?
Four Tru’ Looks above are just the beginning of what you can do. In the next posts, I will show you how I will do those looks myself. Let’s have fun replicating designer looks. Tweet or Instagram me if you get inspired by above and come up with a look. I would LOVE to see your Tru’ La La!
