New Fashion Essentials

Last month, fashion and lifestyle website Pure Wow came out with an article entitled “10 New Fashion Essentials Every Woman Should Own”. Despite the subtitle, they are most certainly not “worth every freakin’ penny”. A camel coat for $2,500? No thank you!

Here’s my take on these 10 essentials and where to buy them for much, much cheaper!

1. Camel Coat

I have a camel peacoat and I love it as an alternative to my black one. This coat is a great option at $68, or if you’re looking for both warmth and style, this L.L. Bean coat is $200.

2. Bow-tie blouse

While I don’t love the black on white color combo featured in the article, this monochromatic top from New York & Company is right up my alley and only $25.

3. Diamond rings, reimagined

They may not be high quality, but if you’re just going for the look these stacking rings work just fine at $20.

4. The new shoulder bag

I love the Chloé Marcie as much as the next fashionista, but not its $800 price tag! I find most my bags at Target and love this saddle bag for only $35.

5. The sleeker blazer

I think I would have to try this tuxedo-style blazer on to see if I liked it (the classic style is just fine by me). Here’s an affordable option at $59.

6. The chicer everyday tee

One of my favorites! This goes with pretty much anything. You can pick up a J.Crew classic version for $35 here.

7. Culottes

Definitely not my style, but if your wardrobe is more trendy in nature you could pull them off! If you’re not sure, pick up this pair that will only set you back $6.

8. Lace-up flats

I think I like these, but would never be daring enough to wear them! I would favor a modified version of lace-up flats, such as this espadrille style or this ballet flat.

9. Flared denim.

Again, not my style of pants. But perhaps we are nearing the end of the skinny jean’s reign? I’d much rather replace them with a cute skirt, but if flares are your style, this J.Crew pair at $44 is a great deal.

10. Neutral nail polish.

Essie is my go-to brand, and I love this pale pink color.

Huge thanks to BMO for giving me the idea for this post! (Y’all should check out her Etsy shop!)

  1. Hey! I saw in a previous post you were trying to figure out how to add a SHOPSTYLE widget into your blog posts but WordPress doesn’t allow it. I’m currently learning this! How did you create this page? With the image and then once you click the link it takes you to that product. I would love some help!

    • Hey! I’d love to help! 🙂 So wordpress.com doesn’t let you do a shopstyle widget- you’d need to have wordpress.org. I didn’t want to upgrade quite yet, so for this post I just inserted the images and put the hyperlink in the text below, linking to the website where you can buy them. It’s not linked to rewards style or anything like that, so you can’t get paid for clicks, but it does help your readers find the product. I think you might even be able to hyperlink the images themselves to the product. Let me know if you have more questions!
