With the release of his über popular collection at Target earlier this week, we thought that now would be ideal time to showcase designer Phillip Lim's equally chic Fall 2013 runway show. Filled with a mix of wardrobe staples and trendy additions, this collection is brimming with fab fashion inspiration for early fall.

Want to see how you can recreate a designer-worthy outfit on a budget? Just scroll down to check out three lower-priced versions of looks from 3.1. Phillip Lim Fall 2013:

1. Fall Layering

Autumn is all about layering, and not only is the above ensemble done so perfectly, but it's also super stylish to boot. We also adore how Lim mixed multiple neutrals in a way that looks cohesive and chic.

Recreate this look by layering a floral print blouse underneath a knit sweater. Next, add a side-zip moss green skirt as well as a black overcoat. Over-the-knee boots are a practical yet trendy touch, while dramatic chandelier earrings amp up the glam factor. Lastly, paint your nails a bright white shade, similar to the mani the runway model is rocking.

2. Leather Details

Mixed material pieces have been cropping up everywhere this season, like the top above that mixes leather and plaid fabric. When paired with gray trousers and open-toe booties, this designer shirt is equal parts edgy and polished.

We opted to go a more casual route with this outfit by pairing a short sleeved sweater with a pair of gray skinny jeans. Contrast the faux leather sleeves of the top with cutout suede booties, then slip on a pair of trendy circle shades. Accessorize with silver drop earrings to complete the look.

3. Chic Sweatshirt

Most of us probably have an oversized pullover sweatshirt in our closets, and this runway look showcases a new way to style them for fall. Wearing one over a dress is not only the perfect mix of girly and low-key, but it also extends the wearability of your favorite summer sundresses.

For a similar look, start by layering a graphic sweatshirt over a floral print sundresses. Perforated boots add a trendy vibe, as do several gold midi rings. Paint your lips a deep berry shade to finish off this casual yet chic ensemble.
