Distressed Boyfriend Jeans / Stipe Lace Blouse (Size up..fits small) / Grey Maxi Cardigan (Sold Out. Similar Here) / Sandals (Another Option Here) / Sunglasses
One of my favourite tricks when adding to my wardrobe is to shop smart. I find I change my mind so often about what I love/hate so it isn’t practical to always be spending hundreds of dollars on clothing. Though there are pieces I will invest it, most of the time you’ll catch me styling pieces under $30. This look I’ve created is super basic but just a simple example of how easy it is to create a full look for less.
I’m going to do a two post series where I’ll show you two looks I created for less than $125 (each). I wanted to do this post because I often come across looks that I love but simply aren’t financially practical. I know that everyone enjoys more for less and if you have a plan and know what you’re looking for it doesn’t have to look cheap.
My first step in shopping smart is choosing a place you can rely on. Forever 21 has to be one of my favourite places to find cute wearable pieces. I love how I can click on the images and zoom in and see exactly what it is I’m purchasing. Start with a staple piece or something you know you can work into a number of different looks. For this look here, I decided I needed a pair of Fall Boyfriends and chose to work around that. Distressed boyfriend jeans have been trending for the past couple of seasons and I’m liking it. I love how I can feel comfortable and relaxed without having to leave my house in tights. I also will add to the distress myself if I love the fit but wish there was more wear + tear to it. Like I did with this pair, I’ll grab my scissors and just start snipping and ripping. If the boyfriend style isn’t your thing that’s totally okay! They have everything from skinnies (actually $7.90) to distressed capris to flares! Whatever your style, there is a pair for you and completely affordable.
Once you’ve chosen your staple find add on’s and accessories to complete the look. Sunglasses, cardigan, a hat and a pair of faux-leather sandals can complete the look without breaking the bank. I hope you found this helpful + you all have a wonderful weekend! xx E
