Lean shopping


OK, so I'm not saying "start shopping at discount stores" or that "discount clothes fit just as well."  But I do want to prove that as long as you know what to look for, you can pull an outfit together at any store.

Main key is to keep it simple: white button-down shirt, black pants, basic heeled shoes, etc.  It is also very helpful (on the wallet) to pair inexpensive pieces with your other pricier clothes.  Nothing can beat a $5 t-shirt worn under an $80 cardigan!

I decided to challenge myself in compiling complete outfits at stores such as Sears, JC Penny, Kohl's and Walmart.  Took some searching... but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the overall look and the drop-bottom prices!

The first outfit comes from Sears.  It's a casual look for the weekend, which sums up at $104!

This outfit is from JC Penny.  It keeps up with today's trends of boyfriend blazers and rounds out at $155!

The next outfit is right out of Kohl's, who now carries the latest line of Lauren Conrad.  Perfect for a night out with the girls, all for $138.

And finally, an outfit from Walmart.  Professional enough for work and fun enough for your personality.  Yep, this one is the "price leader," at $101!

That's right, you have to know how to wear it. Otherwise, even $300 sweater won't look good on you.
