Everyone loved the A Casual Outfit That Looks Expensive – But Isn’t, post I did in April. I can understand why; who doesn’t want to look great for less? Would you like to see “outfits that look expensive – but aren’t” as a repeating series?
Today’s outfit is remarkably similar to last weeks. All the items I’m stying are different, but the overall look has the same vibe. This is how you can take an outfit and make it yours. I realize that everyone’s budget for clothing is different, and buying an entire outfit can put a strain on your wallet. If that is the case, pick a piece or two that you can add to your wardrobe to create more outfits in the future.
Affordable Blazer To Create Outfits That Look Expensive, But Aren’t
Nothing elevates the look of an outfit faster and easier than a blazer. Some of you still believe that a blazer is only for the workplace or meetings. Let’s change that today because I wear blazers to church over a dress, dinner with slacks, and shopping.
If you are watching your money, you want to pick an affordable blazer that can be worn in multiple ways. A classic color such as white, black, navy, or tan would be the best choice since they are great neutrals that go with everything.
This double breasted tweed blazer is gorgeous! I loved it so much that I bought it in white, black, and red. The material is very nice, and the blazer is lined. It is of excellent quality, although the buttons aren’t as heavy as I would like, but they still look great.
There are always going to be times when I don’t want to wear a blazer or I want to take it off. So, here is the outfit with the blazer. You can see that the outfit looks great, but wearing the blazer takes it up several notches. With the addition of the blazer, the outfit now looks polished, complete, and chic.
This Cheetah Puff Sleeve Shirt is too cute! I don’t usually like tops with a high neck since I have more chins that I want people to look at. However, this shirt now hangs safely in my closet because I love it so much. It fits great and has cute details. Plus, I love a Cheetah print since it is usually smaller than a leopard print.
When I talk about an outfit being finished, put together, and complete…it needs accessories. The Beaded Hoop Earrings are a great size and aren’t heavy. The set of 2 Chain Necklaces in Gold can be worn separately or together to create different looks. I love the quality of Kendra Scott’s jewelry, and you will find I wear it often.
This chic Top Handle Straw Clutch is the bag I’m reaching for the most. I love the style, and the clutch looks great dressed up or down. I’ve also got a black one on order since black is a color that is not well-represented in my handbag assortment.
But let’s talk about these Wide-Leg Jeans! If you’ve been waiting for the right wide-leg jeans to come along before you jumped on the bandwagon, here is your invitation. These jeans are soo soft and comfortable, although they have a pretty high waist. I love the lighter color since I wear that more in the spring and summer. These are super flattering, and my usual size 8 fits me great. The best part is, they are also VERY AFFORDABLE!
