Taking Spring Styles from Runway to Real Life [Budget Stylista]

After taking a peak at the incredible spring 2012 RTW collections on Vogue.com, I was inspired by how gorgeous the ensembles came together. Spring trends included a large amount of color blocking as well as certain couture looks that are surprisingly wearable. As high fashion and expensive the real runway looks are, imitating them with affordable pieces under $60 will make you regal-ready for any spring event you’ll attend.

Gucci’s collection was color blocked to the fullest degree. As bright neons and pastels paired together has become popular, Gucci’s collection stayed elegant with pops of color matched with neutrals. To replicate this style, pair an orange Chambray tee with a white lace mini skirt. Add some solid blacks by accentuating your skirt with a black belt and some suede pumps.

Marc Jacobs is the brand to thank for the increase in colored bottoms and dyed denim. Steal the spotlight in a pair of bright skinny trousers, a white front-tye blouse and white & red leather pumps.

Another color blocked Marc Jacobs look is complete with a navy blouse and a sea foam green high waist skirt. Adding white wedges and wayfarers keep the look classic.

Ralph Lauren creates an incredibly girly look with a white frock paired with gold accessories. Adding a hint of style with light leopard sandals will keep your legs long and ensemble elegant.

Nina Ricci’s collection was on trend watch, responsible for the crop bustier or bralette top/flowing skirt combo. Add some leather and suede to create a modern persona.
