Look for Less: MODA Show 2016

The MODA Show is tomorrow, and if there ever was a time to make a statement, February 26th is the night! So whether you've been lusting after Kendall and Gigi's cool girl club attire or daring to emulate one of Alexa Chung's memorable ensembles, check out some of these fashion forward, head-turning steals that come with a much cheaper pricetag than their couture counterparts.

Diane von Furstenberg has always been the preeminent arbiter of classic style. If you love experimenting with bright colors, contrasting patterns and feminine silhouettes, a wrap dress (Diane's iconic signature) or shift dress accentuated with a tie belt, skinny scarf or eye-popping makeup is the perfect mix of 70s throwback and 21st Century chic.
