Fashion trends are tricky to master. With an industry that is constantly releasing new looks and trends, it can be extremely difficult to keep up. At least ten fashion trends have happened in 2019 and we aren’t even done with 2019!
Not to mention how expensive it can be to keep up with the latest trends. Now, I love a good shopping spree. Finding that perfect outfit is absolutely amazing, but I can’t always indulge in the newest thing. Hello, I am still going to school and I have bills that I need to pay for. I do not have money to spend on every trend.
I know a lot of young women in the exact same boat. A Kim Kardashian look on a 20-something-year-old budget? Not going to happen. So what is a girl to do? Just focus on those classic fashion trends!
While fashion trends do come and go quickly, there are still some pieces that just do not go out of style. The best part is you more than likely already have most of these in your closet. And if you don’t, I know where to find them for cheap, to keep budgeting easy!
So here are 10 fashion trends that never go out of style and just where to find them for cheap!
- Levi’s jeans
This brand comes to mind when talking about denim. They have something for every woman. From super skinny for those that really want their jeans to stick to them, skinny for women who want their jeans to hug them, slim for a natural look, straight cut for a classic feel, boyfriend for the most comfortable feel, and bootcut that widens at the ankle, Levi’s come in every shape. Of course, Levi’s come with a hefty price tag. But, there are plenty of more affordable options. Walmart offers a variety of choices for half the price. Kohl’s also has its fair share available at a low price.
These shoes are a MUST in every woman’s wardrobe. Anyone who knows me knows I love Converse. I have them in multiple colors and patterns. I love the versatility you have with these shoes. I have personally worn my Converses to the gym, school, work, and to parties. Throw on your Converse with a pair of jeans, your white t-shirt, sunglasses and you’ll have the perfect casual outfit. You could also wear Converse while wearing a dress for a cute and playful look. Footlocker has amazingly cheap prices for Converse. I’m talking prices as low as $25! Now that is a bargain! You can also find fairly priced Converse on shoes.com.
- Floral print
By far my favorite print is floral. This classic print goes with anything at any point in time. Spring calls for bright or pastel colors with light and airy fabric. Floral prints and dresses go hand-in-hand. For spring, pair your favorite floral dress with either sneakers or ballet flats. For summer, grab floral shorts or a floral skirt with a solid color top. And for fall and winter, choose floral on darker backgrounds like blue, black, off-white, or burgundy. You can find floral anywhere, for a low price. I recommend Forever 21. Whether you need something formal for a dinner or wedding or something casual, they have what you need. Target is another store that caters to any occasion at a reasonable price. And finally, Fashion Nova offers everything floral.
- Little black dress
Ah, yes, the little black dress. The dress that makes you feel all the way seductive. Black is an elegant and sophisticated color. It has an air of mystery about it. You put on your black dress with your sleek black heels and your favorite makeup and, voilà, you are feeling and looking your very best. You can also pair a loose, flowing black dress with a jean jacket or cardigan and Converse or boots for a casual look. Affordable black dresses are everywhere. I recommend Forever 21. You could also visit Kohl’s for beautiful black dresses at low prices.
I absolutely love my boots. I will admit, I am not much for heels. So when I am going to a fancy dinner, party, or formal event, I love being able to look professional and fashion-forward with my boots. There is a boot for every occasion. Put on some combat boots, form-fitting jeans, and your favorite graphic t-shirt and you have the perfect casual outfit that has a bit of edge. Grab boots with some fringe to match your fringe vest or purse for a country chic look. You could wear boots with anything. Now, usually, boots come in between $50 – $100! That’s crazy! Target offers some beautiful boots for a much lower price at a wide variety.
Cardigans are my favorite of the fashion trends! I have thicker arms, so jean or leather jackets don’t really work for me. Plus I don’t like feeling restricted. Cardigans are perfect because they are soft and light. They also complete any look. Use them for a contrast of color to make your outfit stand out. I’ve even used them with formal dresses. They are just so versatile! H&M and Rue 21 are my favorite places to go for fairly priced cardigans. Both stores have cardigans in every shade, length, and material imaginable. You’re bound to find one you love!
- Midi dress
I love dresses. There is just something about them that makes me feel so girly and comfortable. Midi dresses are my favorite. For those that do not know, midi dresses and skirts end halfway between your knee and ankle. This type of dress is perfect because it’s easy to dress down or up. You could wear your midi dress with heels, your hair up, and your makeup done for a night out or wear your jean jacket and boots for a casual day look. I recommend shopping on Amazon. Amazon has plenty of midi dresses in every shape, pattern, color, and size for low prices.
Leggings are definitely a gift to us women. They perfectly combine comfort and fashion. I love how they come in different patterns and colors. Leggings just go with everything. You could wear them under a long t-shirt or sweater. You could wear them under a dress when it is a chilly day. When you are going out for the evening but still want to wear leggings, opt for leggings that have a texture like lace or even something bold like animal print leggings under your dress. And for office wear, they make leggings that look exactly like trousers but still maintain the comfort of leggings. To find beautiful affordable leggings, go to Amazon. Amazon has a wide variety of leggings for every occasion and at amazing prices.
- Graphic t-shirts
Graphic tees are a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. These tees go beyond just a casual look. They can give you a playful look, a grunge look, a throwback style, or even be a statement. Many people even DIY their plain tees and add their very own graphic. Others opt for the tees that offer up that nostalgia. They show our favorite childhood characters, our favorite bands, or just our favorite decade in general. Many show our political or religious views. Some show calls to action. My absolute favorite place to buy my graphic tees is Rue 21. They have the best selection of graphic tees for a very affordable price.
- High-waisted pants
I’ll admit, I am late to the game when it comes to high-waisted pants. But now that I have discovered them, I absolutely love them. I remember when I tried on my first pair. I was skeptical it would look nice on me because I am a bigger girl. But when I slipped them on I immediately felt amazing! It fit in all the right places and even kept my stomach looking flat. The best part? Designers are making high-waisted shorts, leggings, skirts, pants, and jeans. So you have options when it comes to these. And they are such a nod to the 50s and 60s. You can find these fashionable pants for low prices at H&M. Amazon also tops the list for cute high-waisted pants for low prices.
These are just some of the classic fashion trends that’ll keep you on top of your fashion game while staying in your budget. So before you feel discouraged about your lack of the newest trends, keep these fashionable classics in mind. Proof you can be fashionable and economical at the same time.
