When I flip through the glossy pages of ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour, I’m completely mesmerized by the fabulous designer fashions on each page…that is, until I get a look at those prices! True, it’s hard being a fashionista on a tight budget, especially when your taste skews toward those pricy runway designers, but with some creativity and help from budget-friendly retailers, you can skip the splurge and get those steals instead. You’ll look like a million bucks—but you definitely won’t pay that much!
Diane Von Furstenberg
You can never go wrong with a classic Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress—it’s a timeless staple for any wardrobe, but it’ll cost ya! This dramatic navy and off-white Terry Printed Silk-Jersey Wrap Dress will set you back $445 (on net-a-porter.com). However, if you’re looking for a familiar style that won’t max out the credit card, ASOS Vero Moda Leopard Print Wrap Front Dress ($58.17) is made with a stretch jersey fabric that’s funkily leopard but still refined.
