The Look for Less: 1st Edition

It’s overdone, it’s obvious, but I’m about to run with it anyway…. “the look for less!”

The fabulous designer styles I will be recreating this week belong to Beyoncé and the blog “Classy Girls Wear Pearls” (which I highly recommend).

Although Beyoncé was not included in my recent post about style icons, her look is a wonderful blend of fierce glamor and casual confidence. This particular ensemble is a great one to try at home because you probably already have half these items in your closet, and if you don’t, you should. I substituted riding boots for the lace wedged booties that the songstress is wearing in the image. It’s great to put looks together for less, but if you can afford a pair of well-made riding boots you love, I would recommend that you snatch them off that lonely shelf, run to the nearest store register, and never look back.

Blogger Sarah Vickers has a preppy all-American vibe (as if you couldn’t tell from the outfit), and a closet that would make any fashionista swoon with its mix of vintage designer finds and reliable well-cut pieces.

Feel free to send me pictures of other outfits you’d love to recreate for less, and check out our pinterest page for other great shopping finds for the shopper who likes to splurge, the responsible shopper, and the shopper who loves a bargain!
