How to bring the Runway into your Wardrobe?

I know we all look at the never ending fashion shows on Ftv and wonder if we could ever dress like those models, atleast a bit similar maybe? Well it's not impossible but with a little creative mind I am sure even you can put up a runway look all on your own!
Talking about runway shows, brings to our minds fashion & trends. And as the Spring Summer 2013 shows just went by, why not take some inspiration and do some trend talking?

I will take one very simple trend today - Graphic Stripes.
It has to be stripes. Horizontal, Vertical, Cross, it doesn't matter. But it has to be in Black & White.
So lets take a look at some of the best from the runway.


Since those are out of my reach, here are some reasonable ones from my favorite high-fashion brands.



And for here's how to dress the graphic stripe look. I would add lots of bright colors to compliment the blandness of the black & white. Here's how to bring the runway into your wardrobe!


Pick any two complimentary colors and use that to colorize the outfit. On the contrary, you could also go for neutral colored bag & shoes but go crazy on the jewelry & make-up.

The only thing to keep in mind is never to overdo the stripes look. You should always concentrate on one key item which should be the focus. Everything else should only compliment or enhance the focal point but never overpower it.

Now for the budget fashionistas, here's the 'in my budget' look.
