Now, I don't wanna brag or anything but I am pretty good at finding deals, and I'm here to tell you that you really don't have to sacrifice style because of your budget. I'm sure you have heard that time and time again and at times it may seem as though having a bigger bank account would make shopping easier. It might take a little extra effort but you can always find similar accessories or clothes that will fit your budget.
Above I've created nearly two identical looks with some trends that I'm loving right now. I've included some distressed jeans, a leopard print clutch, neon pumps, and a statement necklace. Basically the recipe for a very stylish outfit! One outfit costs nearly $1,400 while the other outfit costs $135. I'm no mathematician but I would definitely go with the outfit that saves me well over $1,000. All of the items in the budget friendly outfit are all items I would wear and they look so similar to the high end items no one would even be able to tell the difference!
Here's the breakdown:
Blouse: $325 Rag & Bone // $36 Zara
Jeans: $385 Paige Denim // $35 Mango
Pumps: $298 Kate Spade // $31 Asos
Clutch: $210 Clare Vivier // $17 Forever 21
Fan Fringe Necklace: $148 J. Crew // $15 Groopdealz
You save: $1,231
So next time you're at the mall trying to find the best knockoff bag or pair of shoes think of it as a challenge...and then go spend the extra money you save on some ice cream! A win, win situation.
