Oscar de la Renta’s designs are so refined, so sophisticated — so expensive. If you find yourself fawning over the legendary designer’s clothes and fantasizing about the day when you can actually afford them, it’s time to change your attitude. These days, the old adage, "if you can’t make it, fake it," holds true, especially in the fashion industry.
Between fast fashion and modified "reproductions" of designer garments, it’s hard to find a look you can’t duplicate, Oscar included.
While recreating looks isn’t always a frugal feat, we’ve managed to find a way for you to pull off this runway look that says "off to St. Tropez" for less than $300. That’s the price point of most Oscar de la Renta sunglasses alone. Take the savings and put it toward a few complementary pieces, such as a big and fabulous resort hat, ballet flats or a light, white trench. Now you’ve turned one outfit into two.
