How to Get a Spring Wardrobe for Less
Audra Lowe. Well Spring is here and fashionistas are ready to stretch their stuff in the newest trends and Lifestyle expert Robyn Moreno is here. She’s kind of really show us how to work the runway, the hottest looks from the runway I should say.
Robyn Moreno: Yes.
Audra Lowe. The pearl of fraction of the price because the runway price is expensive.
Robyn Moreno: Super expensive. I spring through I want to look good and wear this trends but the key to get in these looks, it’s all about the retail where you want to be shopping.
Audra Lowe. Exactly! Now we have a couple of models and they’d be modeling a few of these few trends. The firs one is the military trend. There’s nothing new but it has a different spin on it.
Robyn Moreno: With this militaries we’ve seen seasonal not like for the last three years maybe. But this season, in the past there’s more of Napoleon kind of Victorian look, like very ornamental. This year, it’s sort of like I would say more like main streams. So back to the olive, back to the say couple of buttons.
So we saw Mark Jacobs do this look. And he sent someone down the runway for a jacket for $2200.00. We found pretty much the same jacket at Kohl’s for $50.00.
Audra Lowe. Really! And it’s more functional. It looks like at least you can wear it more.
Robyn Moreno: Yes. The things is because it’s a little bit more paired down, you can have fun with it. So we put our model in a fun, white flirty dress some JCPenney’s because it sort of softens up or can be like a harsh look.
Audra Lowe. Right, okay so now we’re going to go the sporty look.
Robyn Moreno: Yes.
Audra Lowe. We saw this a lot on the runway earlier this year to the sexy tomboy look really, right?
Robyn Moreno: Yes, exactly. You’re a fashionista. You should be just be doing this now.
Audra Lowe. I just can’t wear them right now. You have to let someone wear them.
Robyn Moreno: Sexy mama. Now but we say Alexander Wang do what he got a lot of attention because he did like football looks and stuff and so Johnball courtier for Hermes did a very tennis look like. We pick the tennis look because we think it’s more wearable. It’s a very great gut in a model that’s very sort of 20’s look and sort of sexy. It’s a great point here is I would say all about the retailers. We got this from Marshalls. And Marshalls is modicum of price retailer. It’s a discount retailer but what they do is they are able to buy sort of like over-stocked and discount. So you get in-season designer clothes in season.
Audra Lowe. In season that’s the basic thing yes.
Robyn Moreno: For like 60% off. And so we get this great look for like the whole head to toe, $100.00.
Audra Lowe. Okay so we’ve got a couple more looks so we have to get through here to. The next one is water-color prints.
Robyn Moreno: So basically this is a little bit some what I’m wearing and what we have in the models. It’s a twist on the florals, it’s very romantic and so we saw Cynthia Raleigh do for something for $410.00. We found out some amazing watercolor dress, really gorgeous for a $180.00 at Littlewicked.com
Audra Lowe. And you guys did a great job making it look like it it’s not some out of your grandmother’s closet too. That’s what I like.
Robyn Moreno: Exactly. The accessories are big. So the French boots are really worth.
Audra Lowe. Our next model has on like peek-a-boo. This is a peek-a-boo style?
Robyn Moreno: Yes. This is all about the skin. So here your skin is your accessory. So we saw this go down runway for like $2000.00 and we found this at TJ Mac for you can get that, the designers for like about $200.00. So I would say keep it minimal because your skin is your accessory here.
Audra Lowe. Exactly, the last look that we have is the playsuits, jumpsuits. They’re a little more trendy this spring, a little different.
Robyn Moreno: A little more sophisticated. In the last couple of seasons, we see the rompers very popular. Now, it’s more like disco divas. This look we found for like a $1000.00 on the runway. We found this sort of like very elegant, almost silky like black and grey suit at the Express for $70.00.
Audra Lowe. Can you find it in a little larger size?
Robyn Moreno: Yes! Because I wear it out. I love this look so much.
Audra Lowe. Thanks so much Robyn. I appreciate it.
