Burberry Prorsum SS14

With so many amazing looks from LFW (London Fashion Week) it was difficult to choose just one look to covet. However, when faced with such a decision, it’s always safe to start with Burberry Prorsum. While Burberry is known for there signature checkered print and amazing  (to die for) trench coat staples, their runway shows make us green with envy. The sophistication emanating from each and every model is enough to make us want to completely overhaul our closets.

While that would be wonderful, Burberry comes with a price tag. Each piece ringing in at hundreds or even thousands of dollars, it’s safe to say that while many can afford one staple pieces of theirs (I recommend sticking to outerwear), it would be quite taxing on our wallets to buy head-to-toe runway looks. Here we’ll help you create the perfect work look without the hefty price tag.

Besides the coat, each piece is guaranteed to come in at  $100 or less. The key here – and when buying fast fashion in general – is to buy the simplest items possible. Go for a neutral palette and pick out pretty pieces that are not too elaborate. When buying elaborate, structural items. Splurge. It’s expensive because of the time and materials invested into the product. Fast fashion is, well, fast and it’s better to buy basics.

Luckily these basics are perfect for a Fall work outfit. Mixing camel tones with pretty pink accents are serious  but just begging for a pop of color. When in doubt, make the shoe a statement as is done here. Making sure the shoe is what pops makes this outfit fun, yet work appropriate. With all the conservative pieces up top , the green shoe doesn’t take a way from this look’s formality.

Feel free to accessorize with some minimalistic jewels such as pearls, silver, or gold to take this look into night time as well.

People at work will be asking where you get your inspiration from. From the runways, of course! But don’t worry, your secret is safe with us.
