Like any good shopper knows, it’s not always what you wear but how you wear it that really makes an outfit. That said, there’s nothing like owning a fabulous piece by a designer you love, such as Stella McCartney, a label that can be credited with consistently churning out modern and socially-responsible pieces season after season.
However, it’s a grim reality that—while we might occasionally treat ourselves to onedesigner piece—the odds of snapping up a head-to-toe runway look isn’t exactly feasible, so sometimes a girl’s gotta be resourceful.
That said, we took one of our favorite looks from Stella McCartney’s Fall 2013 runway show during New York Fashion Week and tracked down similar items which to recreate the outfit.
Keep in mind, the aim isn’t to copy the outfit thread-for-thread, but rather build an outfitinspired by Stella’s fantastic look for around $300. Yes, we’re aware that with some of the items, you’re not getting the same level of craftsmanship or quality of fabrics, but hey: It looks the part!
