When you’re just starting out in your career, your clothing budget will vary between small and nonexistent. But, with the right styling, you can make pieces that cost under-$50 look much more expensive.
Target offers some lovely pieces that can be used to build a winter wardrobe that is perfect for work. This blazer from Mossimo comes in a handful of colors and can be used to jazz up suit separates or worn with jeans on Friday. I like the easy shape and the color looks really sophisticated.
This Merona crossover dress, with cap sleeves and a pleated neckline, also caught my eye. (It also comes in plus-sizes.) I also spotted this Mossimo dress with faux leather patches on the sleeves. This dotted split-neck blouse from Xhilaration would look great tucked into a pencil skirt, and Target’s recent collaboration with Phillip Lim produced this chic graphic print blouse.
I have a few pieces from Target, and the quality is similar to H&M (maybe a little better in some cases). So if you would like a couple of pieces for fall, but don’t want to break the bank, carefully select a few inexpensive pieces that might work with what you already have in your closet. And check back at 2:00PM for Two Ways to wear this jacket.
