Hello darlings! Hope you’re having a good week, I certainly am 🙂 Today I’m sharing my new project, How to look chic on a budget, where I put together outfits with affordable super cute flats under 50$ and all the other pieces are also in the same price range. The even better part is that most of the items in the outfits are interchangeable. I like high heels, I really do, but I faced the fact that’s impossible for me to stay comfortable and not be tired wearing pumps at work, especially if I want to go for a coffee after work. And we face other challenges, too: Public transportation, street infrastructure that is not heel-friendly, vein swellings… There’s no need why we can’t look chic in flats, especially when it’s a season when all combinations and colours are allowed.
Outfit #1 Spice a black and white classic outfit with neon accessories. Stripes are very INN this season, and neons rule the style magazines since last year. This is a b&w inverted pant suit you can wear as many times as you have shoes in your closet. And as long as you have a matching clutch for your neon half point flats, you’re good to go: pair them with b&w print dresses, jeans and t-shirts, mini skirts and sheer blouses.
Outfit #2 Another striking pair of flats. Spring and summer are perfect for you to splash colours all over, don’t be afraid. I paired these adorable blue flats with a lace skirt and tropic print t-shirt, also very popular right now. This flats&clutch combo can be easily transferred in outfit #1 🙂 Add striking unusual silver jewelry to complete the casual chic look. Spikes are trending!
Outfit #3 And I’m not forgetting the casual types that like calm earth tones and don’t want to experiment much. Comfortable pair of shorts and a tribal print sheer blouse go fabulously with these caramel sandals, all in the same colour palette. I wanted to shake it up a bit, so it’s not a big challenge to pair this outfit with a turquoise satchel bag and a matching bracelet. For the braver ones, the flats and clutch from Outfit #1 will turn heads in the street in this combination.
