Freshen Up Your Wardrobe Without Breaking the Bank

Sunday, November 22, 2015

Surprised to see the color red on this page? As much as I lean towards a monochrome wardrobe, lately I've been searching for unique pieces to add some statement to my outfits. I will (sadly) be finishing up my internship at Tommy Hilfiger this week, so naturally I've taken every opportunity to use the last of that employee discount. Admittedly I debated for days before purchasing these bold suede booties, but to my own surprise I have not regretted the decision for a second.

Despite being immersed into the New York lifestyle, there are times when even I am bored of wearing colorless basics every day. While I won't be bringing a rainbow into my closet anytime soon, the addition of these autumnal booties has been the perfect wardrobe enhancement. For those of you also looking to freshen up your closets, there is no need to replace your entire wardrobe to do so. A collection of versatile basics paired with a few handy statement pieces is all you need for a subtle (and inexpensive) transformation. 

What are some of your favorite statement pieces? I'd love to know as we inch closer to every shopper's favorite week. I will be back with one more post before Thanksgiving, but I wish everyone a happy early holiday!


  1. Wooohh this is one stylish coat

  2. I don't think I'd regret the purchase of those suede boots either; they're gorgeous! My favourite way to add statement into an outfit is definitely to go for bold statement necklaces or shoes, but I love adding pops of bright colour, too!
