NY Fashion Week Inspired Looks for Less
By: Carmen Ordonez
Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone and many of us were left coveting the looks that went down the runway. But one thing I wasn’t coveting is the hefty price tag that comes along with the looks. So as your resident budget fashionista, I’ve gone on the hunt to find some runway inspired looks for less—your wallet can thank me later.
Designer J. Mendel featured several edgy and figure flattering dresses down the runway, including this A-line leather and lace corset dress. To get the look, without going too daring, consider this Short Jersey Dress with Full Lace Skirt from David’s Bridal. The V-neck will help elongate your neck and provide a slimming effect.
It was all about the glamour for the fashion house of Venexiana during New York Fashion Week, including this metallic dress with rosette detail. For an inspired look for less, check out this Fit and Flare Dress with Organza Rosette Detail from David’s Bridal. The fit and flare shape hugs your curves in all the right places and is sure to turn heads. It also comes in five different colors including black, pink and blue. Oh and did I mention it’s under $200—total score!
White and gold was seen all over the runways, including this number from Badgley Mischka. Chanel your inner golden goddess for less with this Sleeveless Key Hole Print Dress. The X shaped waist will help highlight the narrowest part of your waist and give you a stunning silhouette.
