While blogging about and shopping for new trends, it can be easy to get caught up in all the glitz and glamour of the newest arrivals. Especially those that are high end. While we may all get a ton of inspiration from high end designers and runway shows, to be honest most of us aren’t about to start dropping thousands upon thousands of dollars on new designer duds (although that’d be pretty nice). That’s why this week we’re featuring some great fashions that are modeled off of runway looks, but can be found at a more buyer-friendly price. What’s not to love about that?
Sequins and shimmery tones aren’t just for nighttime anymore. They were incorporated into knitwear to wear for more casual occasions. This was from the N°21 runway look, but you can also snag a similar piece from Express at just $80.
A statement piece is always awesome, and why not do it in a warm and cozy long coat? After all, harsh winter winds are just around the corner. The emerald color trend was also seen frequently, so combining the two ideas just makes sense. Creatures of the Wind had this fabulous coat, or you can support an Etsy designer with this Xiaolizi Fashions long green coat for $169. For under $200 you can get a unique and one of a kind look that’ll have everyone believing it was straight off the runway.
Obviously fur and shearling are popular for Fall and Winter fashion, and even if you live in an area where it’s not necessarily required to wear these fuzzy fashions to stay warm, it’s a fun trend to stock up on. This shearling coat from BCBG is pretty intense, but try toning it down with a vest instead. This Blank NYC piece is vegan, so no animals were harmed in the making of this vest, and at $78 your wallet won’t be harmed either!
Full length florals may sound kind of dicey. After all, we’ve always been told that “less is more”, especially when it comes to prints. Next time you’re looking for an elegant gown with a little flare, Mod Cloth has this wonderful dress for $94.
