There are many tricks to one’s style when it comes to staying trendy, casual and on a budget. Although I personally love middle to higher end brands and designer accessories, there is no need to spend a fortune on basic pieces. Stores like H&M, Forever 21 and even Target are doing a great job recently at updating their trends and providing stylish and affordable clothing for us college students.
This Fashionisto displays his own style through an everyday outfit. His tank top, you may not have guessed, is from Target! The splash of watermelon pink is a refreshing summer color, even on Fashionistos. I love the white trim and playful pocket, which add character to the sporty tank. His classic beige pants are also a style steal. H&M does business wear, dressy suits and pants to an unexpected level at great prices. For accessories, he wears a sleek black watch that matches the belt. To finish off the look, he pairs matching beige in his suede shoes.
Though there are endless summer outfit ideas, my favorite is one that is everyday casual. Usually, that means a T-shirt and a pair of denim shorts that I will wear again and again, and that will not cost me my entire paycheck. A great way to save money on clothes is to reevaluate your closet and stay true to your style. Don’t overspend on clothing items that you can’t see yourself wearing with more than one outfit!
