Affordable Oscar De La Renta? Yes, Please! The New Collab You'll Want To Wear All Spring.
Bold florals, delicate eyelet, and rich taffeta may be hallmarks of Oscar de la Renta's signature appeal, but don't be fooled. These elegant, ladylike pieces are actually part of the designer's exclusive collaboration with The Outnet (Net-a-Porter's outlet site), which debuts today. Though the 24-piece capsule collection is more affordable than Mr. de la Renta's runway looks, each piece is fashioned from the label's archival fabrics and patterns, and retains a classic ODLR feel. Check out a few of our favorite pieces, along with our styling tips, below. 1. Floral Jacquard Dress ($995) Accessorize this sophisticated number with a few youthful accents, like a bright clutch and strappy heels. 2. Tweed Jacket ($695) While you can easily wear this chic tweed topper to the office, we also suggest layering it over a slim turtleneck and skinny jeans for off-duty polish. 3. Eyelet Cotton Top ($395) Give this intricate, ruffled eyelet top a casual spin with printed shorts and sleek sandals--the perfect weekend outfit. 4. Polka Dot Silk-Taffeta Skirt ($450) Tuck a fitted top into this playful printed skirt to balance out its voluminous shape. Add a tailored blazer and pumps for your next board meeting. 5. Stretch-Cotton Canvas Dress ($795) A feminine dress in a neutral color is a smart investment for spring. Style this number with a vibrant statement necklace for a pop of color.
