Get the Look – Fall 2012 Dsquared2

Get the Look – Fall 2012 Dsquared2

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.


Then there’s the sweater, which was an absolute steal at $20!  We found this Vince sweater on copious.com.

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.
