Get Your Designer Look For Less This Spring

If you take a look at what’s trending in most fashion magazines, it’s usually a mix of designer-label-heavy styles that the majority of us can’t afford (or wouldn’t splurge on even if we could).

Add to that the extremely trendy styles that are out of fashion after you wear them once and sometimes it doesn’t seem to make much sense to invest too heavily in a designer look inspired by what you see on TV or in the movies.

If you’ve never been able to get that gold dress out of your head worn by Kate Hudson in “How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days,” or some of your other favorite fashion in flicks, you’re in luck. There are websites devoted exclusively to finding snazzy knock offs of couture dresses for about $100 or less. And designer Allen B. Schwartz seems to have made it his life’s mission to create evening gowns similar to those worn on the red carpet (there are even some plus size styles).

But if it’s day-to-day looks you’re after, you’ll have a better chance of scoring some real steals inspired by of the moment TV shows. Fuller House, the reboot of ‘90s TV favorite Full House features a lot of trends simultaneously as each character dresses to best express their grown-up selves.

Stephanie Tanner’s look is heavily hippie inspired with a side order of a Coachella and festival vibe. You can find looks similar to those worn by her. For instance, you can pair a $15 sheer fringe cardigan with $10 jean shorts and a $17 artisan cross-body bag all at T.J.Maxx.

If you’re still trying to copy Duchess Kate’s style, you can shop for the basics of her look instead of trying to nail down every single detail. A perfect pair of nude pumps can dress up even the most basic outfit (check out for great discounts on shoes and clothing), pair it with a neutral floral dress – fascinator optional!
