How to Wear Marcel Ostertag Inspired Fashion (For Under $50)

marcel ostertag 2017 new york fashion week

Marcel Ostertag lit up the runway with his fall 2017/winter 2018 collection at New York fashion week. His style this season was an eclectic mix of vintage patterns, garments with bright clothes, and long-fitting garments with comfortable shoes — mixes that were both diverse and ready to wear.

We loved Ostertag’s runway looks so much that we translated his themes into copycat looks you can find for under $50! 

Marcel Ostertag Looks for Less

1. Bold Prints

Mixed Print Lace-up Knit Dress, $42, Dressbarn

This knit dress is full of bold, bright colors — greens, pinks, reds, oranges — perfect for spring. You’ll reach for this number on Easter Sunday, or when you’re headed to a spring wedding. Pair it with a nude heel and a soft cardigan. You won’t need to accessorize much since the piece is striking enough to stand on its own. A couple of dainty bracelets will do the trick.

2. Shiny Silver Tones

Warehouse Metallic Pleated Midi Skirt, $46, ASOS

Metallics — especially silver tones — are a trend in Marcel Ostertag’s latest collection. And you can incorporate these into your everyday wardrobe in a very feminine way. Try this midi skirt from ASOS. It is appropriate for the office or even for a semi-formal event. Pair this shiny piece with a black top and blazer. Add heels and you’re ready to go. Feeling bold? Trade out the heels for sneakers and you’ll have an edgy off-duty look.

3. Flounce it Up

Criss Cross Ruffle Top, $12, Venus

Flounce is a huge part of the Ostertag’s collection this season. You can wear it, too. After all, a good ruffle never goes out of style.

This top from Venus is fitted, so know that it will accentuate your curves. The vertical flounce makes your torso appear longer and sleeker. Wear with a light scarf to disguise the bare neck, or wear as is. Perfect for date night or girl’s night out.
