So many of you enjoyed last week’s splurge or save outfit that I thought it would be fun to do another one, and I think I have a tough one. I am a firm believer that great style is available at all price points…if you know where to look and how to put yourself together. I’ve seen tacky outfits that cost a fortune and budget outfits that look like a million dollars. So let’s see how we do on this two splurge or save white jeans outfits, which I would both happily wear.
This look begins with a great pair of white jeans. The secret to finding your best pair is to choose a style and shape that flatters your body. It’s often helpful to size up in white jeans and look for ones that are the most opaque. They’re a great starting point for many stylish looks all spring and summer. I now wear these Thinstinct shorts under all my white jeans.
I added a pale chambray shirt which is a quintessential item in my own wardrobe year-round. I prefer lighter washes when the weather warms up, and this often comes hand-in-hand with a lighter-weight fabric.
A pair of easy slide sandals (which are both reviewed as very comfy), a basket tote, two-tone hoop earrings, and rectangle tortoise sunglasses finish the look. This outfit would be great for running errands, shopping at the farmers’ market, or where ever a casual day takes you.
The splurge outfit comes in at $1,942, and the save look comes in at around $300. I would have a hard time spotting this save outfit. Did you? What was the clue for you?
