With temperatures rising, it’s time to scour for fresh wardrobe staples without busting budgets. Styling trendy, editorial-worthy ensembles with cash constraints is always challenging, yet it’s fun to let the creative juices flow. I philosophize that creating trendsetting looks doesn’t necessarily take a financial fortune — it takes vesting the creativity and time — the beauty of fashion is in the composition of an outfit itself. Whether you’re spending summer in the city, sipping cocktails on a patio, hanging-out on the shore or all the above — it’s essential to stock up on light and bright pieces to survive this season with style. The best part is, there are many trending items for $200 or much less– to rock killer style without emptying your wallet.
