SPLURGE VS. STEAL: CELEB STYLES TO MIMIC

July 2014

Linda G.

When the cold winter weather ends, its no doubt summer is around the corner. This means a revamping of our wardrobe which can leave our wallets feeling a bit lighter. Not to worry, we have done the footwork for you and found pieces that will fit your style and your budget.

OUTFIT 1: This outfit is chic, simple with an edge all at the same time. It can be more causal with sneakers or sandals, and dressed up with a pair of pumps you already have in your closet! Go with colourful shoes to brighten up the outfit.

OUTFIT 3: Maxi skirts are a great way to work the crop top trend. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of fabric covering the body so a peek at the midriff breaks it up and makes the outfit summery.
