Get the runway look on an HKS budget

By Erin Patten

In spirit of Fashion Week, with New York and London behind us, Milan in full swing and Paris soon to follow, let’s take inspiration from Mulberry’s fall collection to create our very own designer runway look on a reasonable budget.

The sheer studded collar shirt is a trend piece that slips well under a blazer, cardigan and in this case faux fur vest and can easily be paired back to jeans on a casual day. The statement skirt in bold colors is perfect for brightening a cold, dreary Cambridge day and can be worn with a chunky knit sweater or dressed up as seen here for a more sophisticated look. A faux fur vest is a must-have for fall adding warmth and luxury to any look. Don’t shy away from pairing your faux fur vest with denim, dresses, or a skirt and blouse combo. Add a platform oxford bootie to your look to enhance the preppy charm and lengthen those gorgeous limbs. Last, but not least, include bright and textured accessories that complement your overall look and show off your personality. Always make sure that your true self shines through and no matter which pieces you choose to mix and match everyone will undeniably take notice!

Stay inspired.
