The Stylist Manifesto: Frugal Fashionable Fellas

February 15, 2011 by  
Filed under Boys on the Side

Even though the economy currently sucks, one must still expand his or her wardrobe from time to time. This is where shopping on a strict budget comes in. For this post in going to craft two outfits for under $200. Just for the frugal, fashionable fella.

Outfit 1:

We’ll start off with a more dressed-up version of the casual ensemble. This single button blazer is a great start, especially at only $34.20 at yesstyle.com.

This is a refreshing change from the traditional button-up as it’s not only a textured example, but also a utility version with shoulder detailing. The gray palette is wonderfully visited in modern form. Note the complementary neckwear that follows $16.00 at topman.com.

The diagonal pattern nicely reflects that romantic evening you’ve got planned for your baby,  and @ $6, how can you pass it up? Topman.com baby!

There’s just something wintery about silver! This tie in brushed silver stands out beautifully against the gray utility shirt and the reflection from the silver fleck will definitely catch your mamita’s fancy. Enjoy for only $6 at topman.com.

What can I say, I love Lauren Conrad’s style!  Here she’s wearing a navy skirt, a white tee and looking fabulous as usual it’s the perfect blend of classy, trendy, and preppy with the just right amount of sexiness.  I changed the skirt to one that I personally own and can attest to it’s perfect fit and details.  And you gotta love the name necklace (see below), which I highlighted in a previous post!  Get Lauren’s look for less!

Celebrity Redo: Kate Bosworth

June 3, 2009 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

 Here’s the deal: It’s not that I don’t like Kate Bosworth’s look (it is kinda Bohemian cool), it’s just that the colors don’t do anything for her and it definitely would not be my first choice for Summer wear.  I can see someone wearing booties with a Summer dress, but Kate’s wearing a tee, vest, scarf and booties.  For the redo, I decided to swap out the gray tee for a white tank and instead of the booties I added a pair of woven platforms.  The pieces I chose will allow you to easily mix and match them with other  Summer essentials (like the tank with shorts or the vest with dresses).
