I had to go into town today...Albi came with me of course! I put together this look for around under €120, the most expensive item is the blazer at €79.99 and all the other items are super cheap. I definitely feel like you can save on certain items like basics, accessories (costume jewellery), flats, and some skinny jeans provided they are from a brand that you trust and that you know are good quality, eg. Zara. On the other hand there are some items that you need to spend a little bit extra for, because these are statement pieces that should fit you perfectly, be higher quality and last you a long time. For example trench coats, blazers, boots and handbags.
If you mix and match affordable and expensive items together, you will find that your outfits will never look cheap or tacky, instead they will look chic, put-together and more expensive than they really are. This is a great trick because not everyone can afford to splash out on each item in their wardrobe.
What I'm wearing:
Zara blazer €79.99
ASOS shirt £6.00
Zara skinny jeans €5.99
Urban Outfitters flats £9.99
Fat Face bracelets £8.50
Oasis sunnies €4.00
Vintage clutch from my mom - 100% free!
I hope you like this look. Let me know what you think in the comments.
