What To Shop

4 Timeless Outfits That Won’t Break The Bank

And make you look French n’ cute.

I don’t know WTF has happened, but I now order champagne instead of wine and the other day I told Carmen that I wanted my ‘vibe’ to be, “Zimmermann by day, Saint Laurent by night.”

Sorry but who do I think I am?

Working in fashion and mainly curating WHAT TO SHOP edits means a constant itch to buy something new.

But I’ve got to be realistic with my (very low) budget, but I still want to look expensive.

Thanks to the internet there’s a fix. I find the best way to source lower priced designer pieces is to head to these sites or I can get creative and DIY a designer wardrobe. And then there’s online shopping.

The trick is to look for timeless pieces. This means classic cuts, colours and things that you know you won’t get sick of.

Picture yourself next year and ask ‘would I still wear this?’ And always make sure you already own something you’d wear it with, no one wants a wardrobe packed full of one-off pieces that still have a tag.

All the items below are under $105… it’s like fashionomics.
