What makes me happier than an awesome outfit? An awesome outfit on a budget!!
This look is such a steal, because the two staple pieces are Forever21 finds (plus the necklace!). As we all know, F21 offers fashionista’s the latest trends for less… a lot less.
Unfortunately, high stock and poor quality can detour people from shopping here. I always have GREAT luck with cotton and sometimes silk blends however. Trying on each piece is a must, since their seams can be off. But when you find something well cut and well made for a fraction of the price, I call that a WIN-WIN!!
This outfit is a perfect example of classing up a really affordable outfit. The heather-gray top has a gorgeous zipper detail in the back and I LOVE the modern sleeve length. This skirt was under $10 and has the perfect amount of stretch and hold to wear all day!
I mixed in some investment pieces to pull outfit together. My KateSpade knot bracelet matches the sterling wash of the necklace and the tiny clutch balances out my lighter shoes. These clothe booties are SO popular that you can still find them online here and there. But there are SO many affordable alternatives. Check out these 3 pair for under $100! Asos, H&M, and DV by Dolce Vita.
