Do-It-Yourself: 5 Runway Looks That You Already Own
Don't dream it, be it. Here, we have five outfit formulas from the Fall/Winter 2017 runways that you can cook up straight from your own closet.| March 22, 2017
If you, like us, have been following the fashion calendar like a hawk and imagining yourself in those clothes, we get you. Unfortunately, there are two things standing in the way: it’ll be months before the looks hit the stores – “See Now, Buy Now” needs to be more of a thing – and there isn’t always spare cash lying around. But, being the strong proponents of chasing le dreams that we are, we meet these setbacks with a “can’t do, make do” kind of attitude.
That is, with stuff you probably already own. Denim jackets, black blazers, that vintage floral dress, that checked blazer that you bought after the rise of Demna Gvasalia’s Balenciaga – we’re putting all of them to work in a fresh new way, taking inspiration from five looks from the Fall/Winter 2017 runway. But, in the event that you no longer like your own stuff and you do have loose ke-chings just chilling in your wallet, we’ve picked out a couple of similar pieces – including one exact runway piece, thanks “See Now, Buy Now”! – that you can buy straightaway.
1. Checked Blazer + Floaty Dress + Sneakers
2. Striped Turtleneck Sweater + Floral Dress
3. Waisted Belt + Blazer + Elevated Sweats
4. Logo T-Shirt + Full Tulle Skirt
5. Oversized Denim Jacket + Belt + Straight-Cut Jeans
