Finding Fashion Week-worthy styles without the designer price tags

The runways in New York brought a deluge of fresh looks, just in time for Spring Break 2014. • Spring break is a license to party, sleep and do anything but study, including — if you're a fashionista — trying out some new looks. • Unfortunately, the undeniably fabulous fashion seen at the New York shows are a little, er, cost-prohibitive for the average aforementioned fashion-loving high school student. But the exorbitant costs and impracticality of donning off-the-catwalk ensembles won't stop couture worshipers from looking on-point over break. • From the light blushes seen on the catwalks of Burberry Prorsum, Giorgio Armani and Miu Miu to the eclectic pop-art-inspired apparel at Valentino, Kenzo and Prabal Gurung, styles ranged from demure and sporty shifts to eye-catching asymmetrical ensembles. • Just in case you missed the spring shows, here are some on-trend and less-expensive suggestions inspired by New York Fashion Week.
