Even though it's a spring collection, Saint Laurent's latest offering seems like it was just made for this time of the year. With a distinct '70s-inspired vibe, the collection combined dark colors and unique layers, featuring ensembles that were moody, glamorous, and perfect for winter.

Want to get a runway-worthy look for less? Scroll on down to check out three budget-friendly outfits inspired by Saint Laurent Spring 2013:

1. Prim & Polished

Dark colors were prevalent throughout Saint Laurent's spring line, and this look proves that a monochromatic outfit can be a chic and fashion-forward choice. The military-style jacket and cigarette pants create a streamlined and polished vibe, while the oversized bow found on the printed blouse creates volume and interest.

Recreate this look by pairing skinny black trousers with a printed tie-neck blouse. Layer on a crisp, military-inspired blazer and a pair of sleek t-strap pumps. A faux crocodile belt adds some texture to the outfit, while a wide-brimmed hat is similar to the ones found on the Saint Laurent runway.

2. Boho Glam

For a similar outfit, look for a printed, long-sleeved maxi dress, just like the one we found from Macy's. If you live somewhere super-cold, remember to layer a tank top and leggings underneath to stay warm! Next, define the waistline and add interest with a wide tasseled belt, then pair the dress with low-heeled ankle booties for a casual-glam vibe. Accessorize with a horn-shaped necklace and a statement-making black hat to complete this look.

3. Low-Key Luxe
