From leopard and plaid to pairing sweaters and skirts, Tracy Reese's Fall 2013 collection is filled with all the hottest trends of the season. However, the cost of snagging an on-trend designer look can be out of reach for a majority of college students, which is where CF comes in: we're here to show you how to get a runway-worthy look on a budget!

Don't believe us? Just scroll down to check out three lower-priced versions of looks from Tracy Reese Fall 2013:

1. Stripes & Solids

Lately, we've been loving the look of bold stripes and this multicolored midi skirt is no exception. A piece like this makes enough of a statement on its own, so pairing it with a solid-colored sweater is the perfect addition to this autumnal look.

For a similar outfit, start with a graphic striped skirt and a cable knit sweater. These Chelsea boots are similar to the ones the model rocked on the runway and pairing them with scrunched-down socks gives the look a fashion-forward vibe. Slip on a pair of Wayfarer-style sunnies, then add the finishing touch by painting your nails a contrasting teal shade.

2. Double Leopard

Leopard is everywhere this season and the Tracy Reese look above featured not just one, but two leopard print pieces. The pairing of a sequined leopard blouse and a fur coat is über-fashionable, but not too over-the-top, while the mustard-colored trousers complement the prints without overwhelming them.

Show off your wild side with double the leopard this fall. Start by pairing a sequined blouse with mustard yellow skinnies, then layer on a leopard print cardigan. Add a pair of cut-out ankle booties to amp up the style cred even more. Lastly, create a cool cat eye makeup look with the help of some liquid liner.

3. Good Girl Gone Grunge

Without doubt, grunge is the hottest trend of the season and the above outfit is a super-stylish way to try out the look. Between the pleated skirt, button-front blouse, and plaid jacket this ensemble reminds us of a grunged-up version of a traditional school uniform - and we love it!

Recreate the runway look by pairing a white blouse with a pleated faux-leather skirt. Oxfords add to the prep school-esque silhouette, while a plaid moto jacket and slouchy beanie grunge up the outfit. Accessorize with a glam gold belt to complete the ensemble.
