It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the staffers here at Shopbop HQ possess some amazing personal style. So, we decided to challenge a few of them to create head-to-toe looks that fall under a specific price point. This month, we tasked Bao and Jen, two styling assistants, with a casual weekend outfit for less than $500.
Picks: BB Dakota jacket, Chaser top, Free People skinny jeans, Herschel Supply Co. tote, Cheap Monday belt, 1717 Olive hat, Shashi bracelet, Marc by Marc Jacobs bracelet, and Kate Spade New York sneakers (similar).
“For an easy weekend outfit, I never want to look too put together, but rather effortless and chic. I usually throw on a trusty utility jacket —thick enough to keep me warm but light enough that I won’t break a sweat. If I’m in a hurry, which I usually am, I put on a graphic tee and a pair of comfy relaxed skinnies. To top it off, I rely on a cozy knit beanie to conceal my bedhead and slip on a pair of comfy printed sneakers.”
“Dressing like a ’90s girl has long been my go-to look—how can you resist a mini circle skirt with tights and lace-up boots? Mixing prints is a great way to show your quirky side and the warm winter reds and browns, really come alive against black and white neutrals. Another way to have fun with your weekend wardrobe is to play with proportions. A cropped sweater with a long button-down underneath is a cool way to layer and achieve a casual weekend vibe. Add a little sparkle with some beaded bracelets and fun shoes—hello velvet!—to complete your look.”
