Fashion Forward: Cheap Chic
We all want to wear the latest trends, but that doesn't mean you have to break the bank. In tonight's Fashion Forward, the nightteam's Diana Diaz shows us how to look like a million bucks without spending a fortune by cashing in on Cheap Chic.
WSVN -- Your favorite True Religion jeans $200. A brand new pair of Jimmy Choos $500. Looking like a star without doling out the dough? Priceless.
Target is one store bringing in the discounted designer duds, from Isaac Mizrahi and now the latest line from New York Libertine.
Raquel Garcia: "Well it's a mixture of punk and goth with Victorian, edgy elegance."
You can go casual with a pair of black shorts and gray bird-print tank, and dress it up by throwing on this black jacket with rhinestone detail. Or be pretty in pink with this keyhole woven top and blue shorts.
Take home the gold in this silk blouse paired with dark jeans. Add a gold handbag and you're ready to sparkle, all for just over a $100.
Raquel Garcia: "You can get a pair of jeans for $35, a jacket for just under $40. We have purses like the gold purse you saw for $35 - $40."
But if you can't say no to shopping at your favorite boutique, Blush in South Miami is stocked with everything chic and easy on the wallet.
Monica Hernandez: "You don't have to go somewhere and spend a lot of money on these looks. You can buy them at less expensive places and still get the look and look nice and piece it together."
Head to your favorite hot spot in this sheer poofy sleeve top and white denim shorts or this black cargo dress and funky fedora, and you can never go wrong with a great pair of jeans, like these matched with a back-revealing gray sequined top.
One tip, if you decide to spend more on clothes, go cheap on accessories.
Monica Hernandez: "Some good accessories now are still a lot of bangles. The Lucite, the plastic bangles are still very in right now, big plastic jewelry, earrings, necklaces."
No matter how much your outfit costs...
Monica Hernandez: "You just have to look confident, and you can wear less expensive outfits and make it look nice."
Diana Diaz: "And for all you bargain hunters out there, the Libertine line at Target will only be available through Sept. 15 so get shopping."
