Runway to Real Way

You don't have to look too hard to find affordable runway lookalikes. As a matter of fact, you can do it all in one online shopping trip! I found four gorgeous dresses, all from ASOS's dress collection, and all perfectly on-trend for Fall.

L'Wren Scott F/W '12
runway to real way #2


At L'Wren Scott, it was all art deco luxury. Go for rich colors and prints. The ASOS Wiggle Dress in Coloured Wallpaper Print fulfills both of those requirements. Top it off with glittering accessories like ASOS Hyla Strappy Heeled Sandals and the Limited Edition Cameo Brooch 3 Pack

Carven F/W '12

runway to real way: carven fall 2012


The look was almost school girl-esque at Carven. A mini dress, like the Nishe Flower Tapestry Lantern Dress, layered over a white collared shirt looks prim without being too stuffy. Try the ASOS Shirt with Scalloped Collar. For added warmth try a pair of Pieces Knew High Socks or some black tights. Maryjanes are the perfect finishing detail. Try ASOS Pebble Maryjane High Heels.


Jil Sander F/W 2012

Jil Sander transported us back to the art deco time period again. Although, this show focused on the geometric simplicity of the art movement. When replicating this look, go for geometric patterns and color blocks in cool blues, grays, and pinks. ASOS's Denim Dress with Chevron Panel is perfect and looks simply chic with the ASOS Prior Pointed High Heels. I couldn't find an oversized coat, like the Jil Sander one, but the ASOS Boyfriend Blazer will look just as good with the dress.

Preen F/W '12
Runway to Real Way: Preen


Preen was one of my favorite Fall collections (see the whole collection here). The foggy grays and apple greens and reds reminded me of early Fall in the Northwest. Crisp and bright and full of life. I happened to find the Full Circle Floral Drape Neck Dress, that is almost exactly like the one seen here at Preen. Pair it with simple accessories like the ASOS Metal Bar Detailed Envelope Clutch and maybe a pair of pearl earrings or some silver bracelets. As for shoes, keep them simple, too. A pair like the ASOS Push It Metallic Platforms would be perfect.
