Want more fash for your cash? As cringe-inducing as this one-liner may sound, the thought of bagging a designer look for less sure excites the hell out of us. And you, too!

Autumn/winter 2012 brought with it many a covetable catwalk look; all blissfully beautiful but painfully pricey. But instead of sitting around racking our brains about how to possibly fund another expensive-looking season, we decided to search high and low to bring you our favourite looks from this season’s runways at a fraction of their price!

Prada will always remain the trend trailblazer every fashion season, and this season was no exception. Her geometric printed suits and uber-desirable embellished platform Mary Janes had the fash pack at hello, so it’s only natural for those whom aren’t blessed with a fashion fund of Wintour proportions to want Miuccia’s looks for less. Here’s how to rock that suit without breaking the bank…

Co-ord Premium Geo Tweed Jacket and Trousers, £345, available at Topshop; Ladea Mary Jane Pumps, £210.26, available at shopbop; French Connection Lurex Waisted Belt, £16, available at Asos; Michelle Black Doctors Style Bag, £28, available at Boohoo.

Military influence swept through the world of fashion like a trusty British shower for A/W’12, and Altuzarra, amongst other top designers, put out the most desirable coats paying homage to this trend. A pea coat with military-inspired details has been at the top of our lust list since February, and here’s how you can bag one without depleting your entire fashion fund.

Mango Wool Mix Peacoat, £114.99, available at John Lewis; Marrakesh Black Velvet Mid Rise Kick Flare Jean, £174, available at My Wardrobe; Gambit Metallic Detail Courts, £55, available at Topshop.

Does a fashion season ever go by without Christopher Kane sending our hearts aflutter? A firm favourite with fashion editors; the likes of Kane are responsible for the London Fashion Week boom and the heightened interest in this city’s style. For A/W’12 Kane brought us the softest knits in the most wanted hues, power prints we could happily ogle (although not afford) till next season and basically everything a fashion girl could possibly dream of. Kane on a budget? Well, not exactly, but good as.

Jeane Blush Renee Knitted Sweater, £42.95, available at Nelly; Lace Check Woven Pencil Skirt, £40, available at Next; River Island Olivia Caged Heeled Sandals, £55, available at Asos.
