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!
