Putting together an outfit that is stylish, practical, and affordable is not always as easy as you think. You have to make decisions about important things all day, the last thing you should be stressed about is your outfit. That is why Xo Mella is showing you some “Looks for Less” to help you simplify your already crazy days. If you are going to be forced to “adult” you might as well do it in style, without breaking the bank.

Our latest look is one of my favorites. Why you might ask? Every piece worn is under $20.00. It’s simplicity makes this look something you can take from errands, to work, and throw a few louder pieces of jewelry on, to make it an outfit perfect for drinks after work.

Outfit Details:

Boots: $5.00 at Forever 21. Yes, we said FIVE dollars. These ankle boots are paired perfectly with light denim. The color of these boots give the light denim an edge that’s perfectly appropriate for a day filled of errands to run.

Shirt: Express, $10.99. This long sleeved grey shirt is perfect and simple, and keeps this look laid back.

Watch: $20.00 at Francesca’s. This watch is simple, small framed, and cute. The band matches perfectly with the boots and throws the whole look together in seconds.

Jeans: $19.99 at American Eagle Outfitters. I love these jeans so much. They cuff perfectly at the bottom and look great with ankle boots. The rips are just subtle enough to keep the edge without taking it to the next level.

Sunglasses: $15.99 at Francesca’s. These sunglasses are so cute and simple. Their hipster vibe make you look effortlessly stylish. It is always a good thing when you can throw together a look with a cute pair of shades.

The best part about this look is that every single piece can be thrown on seperatley to make some of the older pieces in your closet looking completely brand new. You can wear every piece multiple ways, and nothing will be worn once and then thrown into the back of the closet.
