I love fashion, but can’t always afford it. That’s why I love mixing high and low fashion. It gets me the look for less and no one is the wiser. Here are my two tricks to getting a good mix of expensive and budget buys in your wardrobe.
Invest in Staples
Those pieces you will have for years to come? Invest! Classic pieces like a great pair of boyfriend jeans or Celine Sunglasses can be worn again and again, so I can justify the sticker price. Even though I will go for quality pieces when it comes to staples that doesn’t mean I pay full price. Buying off season is a go-to of mine as long as I have the patience to wait it out. For example, I recently snagged some black suede booties last month which will still be in still come fall but I bought them for a 60% off their regular price!
Go Cheap with Trends
Trends come and go, so I have a hard time spending the big bucks on “of the moment” items that will only last a season. I love looking for dupes for those designer styles at stores like Old Navy, Forever 21 or ASOS.
