Fashion Week: Look for Less Street Style

Here’s another Fashion Week street style look that caught my eye. I always struggle with wearing pink because it seems too girly-girl for me but I love the way she’s toughened it up with a monochromatic navy ensemble and ultra-modern white heels:

Fashion Week: Look for Less Street Style

2.18.2014

These days, Fashion Week is just as much about the style outside of the big tents as what’s walking down the ramps. But for budget-conscious sartorialists, the amazing outfits seen on fashion magazine editors, celebrities and others invited to these shows, will probably seem as out of reach as Stella McCartney’s latest collection.

But never fear! I’m here to break down a few of my favorite street style outfits from New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week and help you find cheaper alternatives to pull the looks together.

Today’s look is all about complementing textures and colors:

Best of Sale: Coats Edition

2.05.2014

Homes & Heels is all about being stylish on a budget so I’m always scouring different sites to make sure I pay the absolute best price for anything that I buy. But to help us all be bargain-savvy shoppers, I put together a round-up of the most stylish (and most affordable) coats that I found during Asos’ mega sale:

Best of Sale Coats

1. Oversized Multistitch Coat: I’m obsessed with this rich teal color. The oversized shape is a great contrast to the luxurious color and would look great paired over a midi dress with ankle boots.

2. Striped Ovoid Coat: Who says brown and black can’t be worn together? The color combination will go with everything, making it the perfect everyday staple.

3. Contrast Sleeve Double Breasted Coat: This “borrowed from the boys” coat can be dressed down with a pair of distressed jeans or dressed up with a A-line patterned skirt and crop top underneath.

4. Boyfriend Peacoat: Looking for something more fun on the weekend? This coat is such a fun color and a great frame to showcase a statement necklace.

Still on the lookout for boots? Check out my roundup of Best of Sale: Boots Edition from a couple weeks ago.

Best of Sale: Boots Edition

Homes & Heels is all about being stylish on a budget so I’m always scouring different sites to make sure I pay the absolute best price for anything that I buy. But to help us all be bargain-savvy shoppers, I put together a round-up of the most stylish (and most affordable) boots that I found around the web:

Best of Sale Boots

1. Shay Boot: What’s better than a pair of boots that can go with all of your ensembles? This black and brown pair is the perfect one-stop shop.

2. Jeno Bootie: I tend to wear a lot of darker colors in the winter so I snagged a pair of these as the perfect pop of color.

3. Clary Bootie: For all of those West Coast and Southern readers, these would look stunning with a chic blazer and a pair of boyfriend jeans rolled up to show this gorgeous pair.

4. Diba Elyse Bootie: Why should people from the Austin Powers era be the only ones who get to wear white boots? Pair this modern interpretation with a colorful coat, skinny jeans and a white manicure.

5. Brit Ankle Boot: When in doubt, you can always go with the timeless black and gold combination. As versatile as they are, this is the easiest pair to dress up or down.

6. Mabel Boot: Navy and black together are so Euro-chic. Complete the look with a black fedora and a sophisticated sweater dress.

Best of Sale: Nordstrom

5.23.2013

It’s my favorite time of the year – Nordstrom’s Semi-Annual Sale is here! Okay, so maybe it’s just my wallet’s favorite event but getting great items for a steal is always high on my list. I rounded up a few of my favorites from the sale and can’t wait to grab a pair or two before they’re all snatched up!

Best of Sale Nordstrom

1. Jule Sandal – Pair these statement sandals with a breezy sundress to take your look from day to night.

2. Zigi Chapeau Flat – Summer slip-ons get toughened up with the addition of studs and leather, a great contrast to a pair of feminine floral jeans.

3. Dash Flat – My favorite of all these pairs, I’m planning on pairing these with skinny jeans and blazers all summer long.

4. Flawless Bootie – Get a head start on fall fashion by this reinterpretation of the black and white trend for cooler temperatures.

Best of Sale: Colorful Accents

5.09.2013

You know, there’s nothing that I like more than getting stylish decor at a budget-friendly price. Spring colors are still on my mind so I did a quick round-up of the best colorful accents (all on sale!) that can quickly take your house or apartment from winter dull to bright and bold:

Best of Sale1. Foiled Dot Napkin Set from Anthropologie – Instead of using these to wipe crumbs off your face, pop a few of these in simple black frames to create a fun collage (like this one).

2. Acapulco Lounge Chair from CB2 – Again, it’s all about thinking outside the box. This chair is supposed to be placed on a patio but it could work perfectly in a bedroom as a colorful accent.

3. Saal Wood Candleholders from CB2 – Although they’re pictured here with a white candle, a chartreuse green would complement the natural wood in an unexpected way.

4. Regatta Juice Glasses from Anthropologie – The perfect addition to a table set for al fresco dining.

5. Mercury Glass Vase from West Elm – I love the moody, romantic look of mercury glass. Contrast it with some fresh, bright tulips for a great spring floral arrangement.
