I am definitely a competitive person, so—when the searsStyle staff challenged me to shop covetable pieces on a $50 budget—I was determined to wow them. The result? Four hot trends, with change to spare. In other words? Mission: accomplished.
Studio S Chandelier Earrings
We’re all about outfit-makers—pieces that, in and of themselves, elevate looks across the board. Thus explains our fast love for these danglers. They’d make even the simplest combo (like jeans-and-a-tee) feel super-special. At just $5.99? We deemed them irresistible.
Canyon River Blues Skinny Jeans
Jeans that come equipped with a vintage look have a special place in our heart, and our wardrobe rotation. Take these clearance skinnies by Canyon River Blues: Their fading and whiskering hint that they’ve been around the block, while their embellished pockets make them right on trend. (We think they’re the best of both worlds!)
Metaphor Button-Up Blouse
We can never get enough button-up blouses; they’re chic, polished and work with all of our go-to bottoms. So, it makes sense that we had to have this next-level style by Metaphor. Unlike any other top we own, it hits on the sheer trend—plus features of-the-moment epaulettes and stud buttons we love. (We were tempted to score every color!)
Trend Report Western Bootie
In our book, Western-inspired booties are a year-round staple; they work with shorts, dresses, skinnies, you name it. So, we’re always surprised to see them riding a clearance rack—and we’re sure to replenish our collection when we do. (Classic trends on the cheap? Yee-haw!)
