bcbg on the cheap-y

Sometimes, the reality of life is that you just want to wear sweatpants. Many of us see dressing with style as daunting and expensive, and find it far easier to just throw on that trusty pair of stretch pants to get through the day.

Yet as Urban Darling makes clear, being stylish doesn’t have to be daunting, and I’m here to make it as inexpensive as possible.  Here’s the key: take inspiration from designer looks and find similar items that fit your budget.

Consider this BCBG outfit, a completely relaxed look that still manages to be chic. Yet at a retail price of $807, it’s far more than many of us can afford for a lazy day. How about $165 instead? You’ll be chic, cheap and comfortable, no sweatpants required!

The scoop:

Kensie Sheer Linen Blend Cardigan, Piperlime

Stretch Skinny Harem Pants, Macy’s

London Stiletto, Alloy

C&C California Bold Tank, Piperlime

Burst of Layers Necklace, Forever 21
