Favorite Stores, Amazing Outfits!
Ever have the problem when going into a store and thinking…“I have no idea what to get”? Well, now you can look at a couple of outfits before taking out that wallet of yours and spending money on something that you think you really want, but still don’t know if it will match with the items in your closet. Sure, sometimes you don’t have the money for a full outfit, but it’s promised that these looks featured are inexpensive, in style, fit well, and will give you multiple compliments! Even if you are bad at styling yourself; if you try one of these outfits, no one will ever know!
H&M is awesome when it comes to carrying the latest trends, and don’t forget their pricing! Very affordable and good quality, so you don’t have to worry about the shirt ripping apart after a couple of washes.
You might look at this outfit and think… “What am I, the Little Mermaid?” But who said that was a bad thing? Turquoise is in for the summer and adding a light purple pant makes your outfit scream style! Don’t be afraid to mix your colors! Tone it down a bit by wearing a grey blazer and try wrapping a scarf around your hair (tied on top), giving your outfit that extra oomph. Add some simple earrings and silver or gold flats and everyone will be asking you where you bought that!

What girl doesn’t love a cheetah blouse? H&M has the best cheetah blouse for all sizes. You won’t have to worry about if your gut is sticking out after lunch because the print and flow of the shirt would disguise it completely. Go for a black skinny jean or even a legging to show others that you still have a shape with that flowy blouse. Try tucking in the front of the blouse into your pants for an even more stylish look, and grab these beige oxfords because they help the whole outfit come together. If you would like, add some gold studs and a cute ring to match this adorable look.
What girl hasn’t shopped at Forever 21? They seem to compete with H&M because each store has amazing pieces at affordable prices. One thing that Forever 21 really focuses on is differentiating their clothing selection. Your style can be as different as the girl next to you; but yet, each of you will find something you fall in love with. If you haven’t shopped at Forever 21 before…you need to start!
Every girl needs a corset top. They are classy and this black peplum top is great because it pulls you in at the waist and gives you the perfect shape. These leopard print shorts will add that little bit of sassiness you’re looking for. Pull it off with some strappy nude heels or flats if you’d like to give that sexy, chic look. You can also try wearing a necklace that hits right above the top of the corset for extra style points.

Nothing says “girly” more than a flowy blouse, leopard print, cat eye sunglasses and a cute purse. Each item is a “must have” in any girl’s closet. Putting each of these pieces together creates an edgy, cute, fun, and classy outfit! You can literally get away with wearing this outfit anywhere; shopping, to a club, dinner, the possibilities are endless. The cute is in the blouse, the edgy is in the leopard, the fun is in the sunglasses, and the classy is in the purse. Just add a small gold necklace and earrings with some black heels, and tuck in the blouse if possible. How could you not want this outfit?

Color blocking is so in this season and some of the best pieces are one color, so why not mix and match them? Grab this pink cropped top and add it to this blue pleated skirt. Who said pink and blue don’t match? Another great piece to add to this outfit is this striped jacket which helps bring together the two colors easily. This outfit stands out but will also show people that you aren’t afraid of throwing two different colors together! This look provides all the confidence you will need in a day. If you aren’t feeling the crop top, go for a longer tee that you can tuck into the skirt, giving the same effect. Add some silver accessories, and if you are more daring, go for a yellow sandal or heel and bring the color blocking to another level!
Let’s switch things up a little and go for something different: a shirt with a smiley face on it. You can make it as casual as you would like if you throw on some jeans or shorts, but let’s take it up a couple of notches. Adding the black legging is the first step. This will create a chicer look to your outfit, especially if the legging has a shine to it. You don’t need to add much after that. Grab some circular sunglasses; you can even go more rounded than the ones below… depending on your face shape. Make sure that they are black and get as dark a tint as you would like; the darker the better! To finish this outfit, add some colorful thicker heels such as summer sandals. Also, try this black clutch with gold studs, wear some gold earrings with chunky gold bangles and slick back that hair into a high bun! The overall look is amazing!
