Style And The Real Woman: Runway Trends Made Affordable

Joy Gryson has been steadily making a name for herself in the fashion industry as the go-to girl for handbags. She is well known for her namesake line, Gryson, which makes great everyday carryalls-- just the kind that all the girls in your office would be jealous of.

From there, she created a diffusion line called Olivia Harris, which focuses on many of the same great silhouettes at a lower price point.

Joy Gryson has teamed up with the German luxury brand MCM for a collection called MCM New York. The line will feature sleeker shapes than Gryson is used to plus a lot of chain detailing, pleating, and angular silhouettes in python and snakeskin. The collection will be available at Saks Fifth Avenue and the MCM Plaza boutique in New York, priced from $695 and $2,800.

In honor of Gryson's three separate collections, we've picked pieces that help you get the same look at a lower price.
