Today’s Trend, Yesterday’s Wardrobe: Chunky Sweaters
Fall is officially here and I for one am already being tempted by all of the full price fall merchandise out there. As tempting as it is to spend all of my hard earned cash on the latest and greatest fashions, my common sense tells me that I can get the same look for less using past season designer duds.
One trend that really got my juices flowing was the slouchy sweater and flouncy skirt look that walked down the Stella McCartney runway for fall 2013. I’ve recreated this look using high-end designer pieces that are all on major sale. You can get this look, which by the way is worth thousands of dollars for a fraction of the price. The other great thing about the pieces below is that they will remain stylish for seasons to come.
- Bottega Veneta sweater: Was $1100, Now $550
- Alice + Olivia skirt: Was $297, Now $150
- Acne boots: Was $750, Now $375
- Anya Hindmarch Clutch: Was $635, Now $285
- Emporio Armani Hat: Was $350, Now $165
