So I had an idea. I was admiring the beautiful gowns, prints, fabrics and patterns of a Versace spring runway show when I realized that it would be fun to try and recreate some of the runway vibes in a wearable, normal-gal kinda way. Not all of us are celebs who can pull off insane, out-there clothes on a daily basis. So in this post, and a few in the future, I’ll be sharing some fun takes on outfits that found their way from the runways to the racks. Let’s be clear…things look a LOT different on a curvy petite figure than they do on a tree-like runway model. So just keep that in mind. LOL.
After seeing the 2018 Versace spring collection I was SHOOK over the patterns and materials. The most beautiful, scarf-like pieces with gorgeous draping. I don’t know how else to describe it, so I’ll just show you my favorites.
So, obvi I had to find something similar to the last pattern. But I loved the tie-front look of the second outfit. After searching and scouring I FINALLY found an affordable, runway inspired tie-front top that combined the two looks. It was a jaw drop moment because I ADORE this blouse!
This isn’t a shirt I would wear everyday, so I wanted to style it for a “going out” vibe. And by “out” I mean dinner and a drink or two then home for snacks, pajamas and cuddles by 10 pm :-)
I paired it with dark denim, a chunky block heel, layered necklaces, a bandeau and a purse with a chain. I already had all of these pieces in my closet, so purchasing the shirt was a small price to pay for an outfit that looks super different than anything I’ve ever worn.
Where to Wear It
I know, I know. It’s a statement top for sure! But there are lots of places you could rock this runway inspired trend.

Just Because You Freakin’ Want To
I hope this Runway to Rack post inspires you to try something new with your wardrobe. Who says us streetwalkers can’t wear runway pieces too!? While this certainly isn’t Versace…it is a step in the right direction.
