3.1 Phillip Lim’s Resort 2014 collection featured its signature oversized silhouettes combined with tailored features and cool pops of color. With lighter, brighter hues that are perfect for warmer weather, quirky topless floppy sunhats, and the introduction of a backpack version of the trademark Pashli bag, Lim put forth looks that are fashion-forward, wearable, and incredibly fun.

Are you in absolute love with Lim’s fabulous collection, but are balking at the price tag? Keep reading for three budget-friendly outfits inspired by Phillip Lim Resort 2014:

1. Oversized Structure

This first look is the perfect example of how to combine oversized, borrowed-from-the-boys silhouettes and structured pieces. The cool blue shorts are loose yet fitted, while the blazer is both casual and office-ready. The printed flats and orange clutch add a touch of fun to an otherwise basic outfit.

Recreate this ensemble with a pair of light blue shorts that are flowy but flattering. Combine these shorts with a white t-shirt and an oversized beige blazer. Continue channeling the original look with an orange clutch that has zipper details, as well as round sunglasses and a pair of patterned loafers.

2. Orange You In Love?

Orange was a reoccurring color in Lim’s Resort 2014 collection. While the first outfit incorporated just a dash of the hue, this ensemble centered around the gorgeous orange skirt. By pairing this strong color with an equally rich dark purple top, the resulting outfit is incredibly bold and fashion-forward.

Start by pairing a pleated orange mini skirt with a deep purple top. Slip a black-and-white color-blocked jacket on over the blouse and add some classic-looking strappy white heels. Define and shape your brows á la model with an easy-to-use eyebrow pencil.

3. Summertime Chic

This outfit is my personal favorite from Lim’s resort collection. Not only does it featured the chic combination of black and white, but it upgrades that classic look with both edgy components (just look at that leather detail!) and unconventional ones (like that envy-worthy floppy hat).

Product Info: Top- H&M, Romper- Forever 21, Shoes- Go Jane, Hat- Free People, Bracelets- Forever 21

Slip on a white tee with rolled sleeves under a black romper that has edgy details; for this recreation, we chose zippers over leather. Incorporate a black floppy hat and metallic ankle-strap heels. Finish the look with silver bangles for a bit of bling. We think this outfit would be perfect for a brunch date!
