SPEND AND SAVE ALTERNATIVES TO STYLING A CLASSIC.
Keeping up with evolving trends and creating a fashionable wardrobe to reflect your style demands time and interest. Achieving the desired look doesn’t always have to involve high costs.
The VA girls have been Spring Shopping and wanted to share their finds for women looking to keep within a budget yet still look amazing.
Where To Spend, Where To Save
Establishing the fundamental base of the outfit was easy.
A classic lightweight Ivory Shirt Dress; the perfect throw on and the go-to piece for dressing in warmer weather.
If searching for an elegant piece to work throughout the year, we spotted our ‘Spend’ – a silk Eileen Fisher Shirt Dress with tie-up waist.
Alternatively, for a quick warm weather solution our ‘Save’- a Satin Rodeo Shirt Dress is from Topshop.
We adore both options; there’s no harm in owning two classics are there?
Then there are the shoes.
Lastly, for the accessories. We paired the look with a straw bag and gold hooped earrings. Straw bags are everywhere at the moment and bring fun personality to an outfit. It’s a trend that you can dip into lightly with a purse-friendly Circle Basket. Or, if like us you like to commit to a new handbag, we’re crushing on this picnic-perfect Kate Spade.
It becomes an exciting mission to find the best ‘Spend’ v ‘Save’ alternatives. We’re on to the next styling options, we can’t wait to show you what we come up with.
