Actionable Fashion: Oscar de la Renta-Inspired Threads That Won’t Break the Bank

by Danisha LaShae

There’s not much to say about Oscar de la Renta and his collection, because the clothes speak for themselves. These designs and fits are so luxurious. The patterns are bold yet they contrast with vibrant colors very well. If you’re as ready as I am to bring these looks to your wardrobe, here are 2 runway inspired ensembles for $45.00 or less per item. Enjoy.

I’m not one to play with colors when it comes to my personal wardrobe, but after putting this look together, I love that the blue skirt is a neutral.

This is a head turning look — just looking at it gives me life. I love how Oscar de la Renta paired the different shades of blue. Blue is one of my favorite colors, and for the inspired look I played with different textures. I paired the faux fur vest with a velvet long sleeve crop top to give the outfit more depth.


Hope you enjoyed another runway inspired look for less, and stay tuned for more. I think for the next runway inspired post I am going to actually wear the outfits. What do you think?

By the way, if you’ve recreated any of these runway inspired looks, tweet us or share your photos on our Facebook page or in a comment below. I want to see!
