I was blown away when I saw that my first ‘get ready with me’ video that I posted on Instagram had well over half a million impressions (!!) and over 1K comments. The response blew me away; I will have been blogging and creating content for a decade in March so it means a lot to still have people respond to your content after 10 years – thank you, thank you! As Olivia Colman would say “It’s not going to happen again!” HAHA. Sidenote: Olivia should be Queen of Everything, I adore her! Anywaaaay, I figured for these style videos going forward it would be helpful to have a place with the links to shop the outfits.
Et voila! For my latest style video on Instagram I pulled together three very different outfits that all have one thing in common — each whole look costs less than $150! Yep, everything you see from the clothes to the accessories to the shoes all comes in at under $150 for each outfit. (Just to note that prices are listed at time of purchase so there could be some slight price variance up or down due to sale pricing etc.) I’ve included links to everything for each outfit so you can easily shop the looks below.
Look one: Graphic EuropeanThis look takes timeless sartorial elements, such as dark wash denim, a navy sweater and white sneaks, and breathes new life into them with patent navy color block on the shoes and typographic embroidery to the pullover. All the while keeping the fit slim for a smart European-inspired look. I love this outfit — perfect for brunch or a weekend stroll around town!
Look two: Color Flash
Adding a lone flash of color to an otherwise monochromatic look is a fun way to inject some energy and personality into an outfit. The derby shoes smarten this outfit up but you could easily dress it down with sneaks or Chelsea boots for a little more edge. I accidentally shot this with my Sandro duffel (which definitely wouldn’t make it into the $150 limit I had for each outfit!), but I found a very similar bag that does make it in budget — phew!
Look three: Spring Fresh
As well as celebrating that it’s still light out after 5pm, the arrival of March is days away and that means it’s definitely easier to encorporate more white back into your outfits. You know I’m a fan of wearing white all year round but I totally get that it’s easier once the days get longer, brighter and warmer. With that in mind, I wanted to include a fresh spring-inspired look as part of my mens outfits under $150 post. If you’re looking to invest in your closet for the upcoming season and through into summer then this look is definitely the one for you. The white pants, lightweight bomber and stylish sneaks are versatile pieces that you can work into a multitude of different looks.
