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
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
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.
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
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!)
