Showcasing sixty-four impressive get-ups for fashion week, Ralph Rucci’s spring ready-to-wear collection unveiled intricate detailing, tailoring, and luxuriousness. This dynamic collection consisted of everything from everyday-wear to evening attire. Here's how I would modify three of my favorite head-turners into affordable garments…
Poised in one of Rucci's first features, this model flaunted a plush ruffle-like blouse, black jacket, and finely detailed skirt. My girl-on-a-budget take of this look emphasizes an exotic tribal crop top, and a cute white skirt. Layered over the tribal top I added an open front blazer with faux leather trims and a pair of trendy open toe boots.

Taking a risk in this next look, Rucci layered a dazzling sequin dress over sheer transluscent pants (a trend I also featured in my Armani Prive runway to real way post). The "real way" I’d work this feature relieves this sequin dress of the translucent pants, and adds cage high-heel sandals. Instead of pairing these sheer pants with a sequin dress, try adding them with an extra long shirt. When you combine two eye-popping pieces together—such as the sequin dress and the sheer pants—they clash and take away from the whole look. This one is about personal taste; try layering if you dare…
Dress / Shoes
Dressed with flair on the catwalk, this last model displayed an exquisitely cut top over a light coral skirt. My budget-friendly take of this last showstopper transforms this evening feature into casual daywear. Adding a chiffon triangle-pattern top and a high-low skirt keep this look casual, fun, and flirty. Leather gladiator sandals tie the look together.
