It’s okay. Not all of us have the fashion sense of Kate Moss, the fearlessness of Agyness Deyn, or access to Naomi Campbell’s fashion week glam team. But just because you aren’t a top model doesn’t mean you can’t dress like one.

Couture can be tricky to navigate and intimidating to fashion neophytes. But luckily for you, the runway shows of Fall 2013 contained plenty of looks that translate into wearable trends for the average girl with a passion for fashion.

Here’s our take on how to take these looks from the catwalk to your closet.

From The Catwalk To Your Closet: Your Guide To Fall 2013 Couture


Armani Privé 


From the catwalk: Giorgio Armani aptly called his Fall 2013 collection for Armani Privé simply,”Nude.” And nude it was. Models sashayed down the runway in champagnes, taupes, and flesh inspired tones, donning barely-there dresses draped across their bodies. The result? A fashion tribute to Gatsby-style glamour combined with pure, unabashed sex appeal.

To your closet: While this collection is gorgeous in a controlled environment, not most of us are bold enough to hit the streets wearing gauze, tulle, and lace, opening ourselves up to endless opportunities for nip slips and wardrobe malfunctions. The same look, however, can be achieved with an embellished nude gown, creating the same suggestion of sex appeal while providing more coverage for comfort. This option available at only $221.99.

Atelier Versace


From the catwalk: Move over Justin Timberlake. Donatella Versace is brining sexy back. Atelier Versace’s Fall 2013 runway show was all about the details found in the sequins, slits, and crystal hooks and eyes.

To your closet: Lucky for you, this look is more ready-to-wear than most garments we see on the average Parisian runway. Channel your inner rock and roll sex kitten in a black beaded mini. And at $210.99, all we have to say is, “Meow.”

Elie Saab


From the catwalk: Elie Saab took Paris from the City of Lights to Emerald City with this jewel inspired collection, a reoccurring theme being the plunging neckline.

To your closet: Looking to add some pizzazz to your wardrobe? Incorporating some jewel tones into your closet is one of the best ways to make a statement. Turn heads with this emerald pleated gown from Halston Heritage, at $495.00.
