We Challenge One Girl to Style 3 Fall-Perfect Looks — All Under $150

Oct 10 2012 - 10:31am

Listen, we're the first to admit that fashion can get seriously pricey, but that doesn't mean crafting a look that says "runway" instead of "off the rack" is impossible. Quite the opposite. Today, we've got Penny Chic [1]'s Shauna Miller (pictured here) on tap, offering up her signature brand of look-for-less expertise. Our challenge to her? To create three Fall ensembles — each catered to work, play, or an off-duty angle — that don't break a $150 spending limit. Bottom line: no burning a hole in your pocket and absolutely no compromising on sleek styling. With Shauna's savvy eye, strategic budgeting, and love of shopping (a girl after our own heart), we're sure you won't be disappointed by the outfit outcome. Click on for three ways to wear your Fall best — all under $150 — then, tell us which look is your favorite in the comments below.

The Polished 9 to 5

Your work wardrobe doesn't have to be a drag — and it doesn't have to drain your bank account, either. Belt a printed cardigan over a neutral-toned blouse (or in this case, one very cool denim top); then, add a sleek pencil skirt finish on the bottom. Brownie points for usage of this season's metallic obsession via the skinny waist belt.

The Laid-Back Bohemian

Layering is a given during the colder months, but feeling bulky and frumpy isn't. To spruce up the piled-on look, go for a contrast in colors and textural dynamic. We're loving the bold scarf on top (who doesn't want a little cheetah print in their life?) and the tapestry-printed detail of Shauna's ankle boots.

The Cocktail-Cool

All you need for a sleek afterhours look? The right proportions and the right accessories. Try an eye-catching colorblocked palette against a playful circle-skirt silhouette. As for the accents, a slick patent leather clutch, go-with-everything booties, and a statement necklace should do the trick.
