When it comes to contemporary style, Rachel Roy is one of the few designers who gets that 20- to 30-something women want to look polished and chic without having to dress like their mothers.

Roy visited the Washington, D.C.-area this weekend to debut her spring 2010 collection for Macy’s at Tysons Galleria. It was a laidback affair, complete with a DJ spinning the best of the ’80s from Michael Jackson to The Bangles, servers dishing out small bites like mini-hamburgers and popcorn, while guests combed through racks of RACHEL Rachel Roy fashions marked down to 20% off.

She met with eventgoers offering words of wisdom to burgeoning fashionistas hoping to someday make it big. And S&P got a chance to talk style with the gorgeous designer: “When it comes to looking your best — day or night — you don’t have to spend a fortune,” Roy said. She recommends mixing high-end pieces with low-end items from stores like Zara or H&M.

Through her partnership with the major department store, the designer makes clothes that are trendy without being too over-the-top and work well with staple pieces you may already own. And with price points that start at $13.99, you can score runway looks for a fraction of the cost.
