I love a fun statement piece that can be worn year round. This Alexander McQueen romper could be paired with tights and a jacket or rocked solo, and is the kind of onesie I could picture being worn by preppy Taylor Swift or daring Lily Allen. Unfortunately, Alexander McQueen’s romper is more than my monthly NYC rent! Try Motel’s version available at British retailer Bank Fashion. Much easier on the wallet and just as fly!
I love how pretty patterned pumps can brighten up an entire outfit. The unexpected burst of color screams “Spring is here!” Though many of the prettiest patterns come with the highest price tags, you can achieve the same effect for a sixth of the price. Try these Guess pumps for $90 at Macy’s.
A classic little black swing dress is simply glamorous way to transition into winter. Style with leggings, stockings, statement jewelry, booties, or knee high boots to create multiple looks. The beautiful drape of Elieen Fisher’s silk A-line dress can also be found in ASOS’s CURVE shift dress with embellished cuff. Get it before it’s gone!
Okay, yeah, sure, you should probably have one or two neutral colored coats in your winter wardrobe – camel, black, navy, grey, whatever. But don’t you want something fun and colorful and bright and crazy to keep you warm sometimes too? Spending a bundle on an eye-catching red, blue, yellow, green or burgundy coat is probably not particularly practical, however, unless you’re Victoria Beckham. (If you are Victoria, let me take a moment to say HI POSH YOU’RE GREAT!) So I found some coats Posh would totally buy, and their affordable lookalikes for the rest of us. Shop on!
Camel coats are a cold weather wardrobe staple — they go with anything. I’ve found five different styles of high-end camel coats — from single button blazers to toggle button duffle coats – and their affordable counterparts. Shop on!
Tonight/tomorrow morning, we set the clocks back an hour which means shorter days and colder temps have arrived. One piece of good news: you are absolutely justified in spending some of your hard-earned cash on a new pair or pairs of booties for the season. I decree it. I found seven pairs of stupidly expensive designer booties and their lower-priced lookalikes just for you. You’re welcome.
A leather jacket is de rigueur for fall. But not everyone has the inclination or the ethics (hello, vegans!) to spend big bucks on a nice moto jacket. That’s why we’re here — to find the affordable, faux-leather versions of the high fashion styles you love.
After the jump, leather jackets and “leather” jackets we know you’ll love.
I am still pretty securely in denial that summer is ending and fall is just around the corner, but in those rare moments when I allow myself to consider the cold temps on the horizon, its been to think about buying sweaters. I have been jonesing for this black sweater with leather pockets from J. Crew for, like, a month now, but $158 is a lil’ much. So when I came across this ASOS version — that I actually kind of prefer – for a third of the cost, I was like, Boom! Fall, get at me, bro! I am ready for you!
