Runway fashion is undoubtedly for the rich: changing closets seasonally is not only expensive but impractical for most non-celebrities. However, it can still be fun to mimic certain easy-to-find runway trends in everyday life. These trends may already be in your closet, and if not, they're available via fast fashion retailers for less than $50. See some of these retail options at the bottom of the post and be inspired by my trend picks from the FW 2016 runway!
