Browsing through the women’s RTW fall 2012 shows, we stumbled upon this amazing Dsqaured2 ensemble; perfect for fall with a hint of sophistication wrapped in that highly sought-after rocker style.
Unfortunately, the price of any RTW look is enough to make one consider skipping a rent payment. Or two! So, for the sake of fashion and funds, we’ve put together a comparable look for a fraction of the price.
We estimated the original Dsquared2 look to cost somewhere around $3,000. After some shopping around, we were able to create a similar look for right around $470.00.
PS – We know it’s hard to think of fall as heat waves pass through one after the other; but, planning early isn’t a bad thing either.
Let’s start with the jeans. We found these at Hollister for a mere $59.50.
Next, we have the white utility shirt from Banana Republic for $44.99.
Now on to the scarf, which was hiding at Forever21 for only $12.80…
…and the tobacco colored leather gloves - just $44.99!
This strapping belt for $58.00 is available at Black House White Market.
The shoes, we found at Aldo for $149.98.
To complete the look, Guess sunglasses for only $85.
So the next time you find yourself whisked away in high fashion fantasy only to have your pocket book bring you back to reality, remember you can get that look for a lot less. All you need is the patience to find it.
