The Look for Less: Urban Brocade

Happy Tuesday! While (internet) window shopping, I came across a look from Rag & Bone that I simply had to copy from Barneys New York. I call it the “Urban Brocade” look, hence the brocade lapels on the tuxedo jacket. The minimalist look is clearly not going away, and why should it leave? This look works for almost every woman’s body type and is super chic. It screams “I have effortless style.” The only issue is the price, yikes!

Every fierce lady knows that style is beyond price. As they say, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way”. Unless you have one thousand wills and 253 ways laying around, you might have to recreate this uber chic look.

The look I recreated is a third of the price of the Rag & Bone look and is a pretty identical substitute.

  • Surprisingly enough, Intermix Online had the identical jacket for $179, what a steal! When quality plus sale price mix,one should never pass on a deal.
  • My next find was the Madison Harding bootie. This boot adds edge to the look with its cut out and he gold accents adds femininity to the boot. Lastly, but certainly not least, the dress.
  • I was able to find a similar dress without as many details for $23 from H&M. I must admit, the dress is the biggest steal and every woman must have a LBD.

This look can be worn for several after-hours events like fashion shows, networking events, a dinner date or even for tea. This look can also be played up with gold accessories to edge up the look even more. Add a simple black leather clutch and red lips and you are ready to go!


Where would you wear this look? Are you a fan of the minimalist look? Is there another Rag & Bone look you would like to see for less?
