Good Taste, Great Style…Big Savings

Great taste and great style go hand in hand, but they go even better with great savings. We love to follow the trends each season and stay on top of the best places to shop so that we can bring you big-time deals & discounts on your favorite styles. We’re really loving this Fall and Winter’s hottest and on-trend styles of leather, military, equestrian, brocade, ever-present animal print, and of course, oxblood as the new black. For us, it’s fun and exciting each season to see what the new trends are and to incorporate them into our personal style, but as busy, working moms, we prefer to do it by shopping sales.

There are so many ways to stay fashion-current and not break the bank. One of the ways we get the most bang for our buck is by investing in classic styles and great quality pieces. A good leather riding boot in black or brown is going to update your look now, and again in a couple years when the equestrian trend comes trotting back through. By keeping an eye out and with a little patience you can snap up a pair at the many “New Arrivals” sales that happen the first few weeks of each season online. Same with a leather jacket. Even though it’s not technically on-trend right now, the iconic black leather moto jacket is something that has just never gone out of style since Marlon Brando first donned one in the early 1950’s. As long as you aren’t too literal with it, it’ll add instant cool to just about any outfit you pair it with.

Animal print showed back up a number of years ago and it has refused to leave the fashion scene ever since. Each season you’re sure to see animal print on a runway or two. A classic cardigan can be found on sale in just about any department store, grab one in your favorite animal print and throw it on over a t-shirt and jeans for a pulled together look.

Oxblood, or burgundy, is everywhere this Fall/Winter and there are just so many fun ways to add it to your wardrobe. We stay on-trend and on-budget by adding accessories, like a gorgeous infinity scarf, in the color of the season. This doesn’t always work well with beauty products, but oxblood is a perfect color for Fall/Winter lips and nails. Less than $10 to update your look for an entire season? That’s affordable fashion.

These are just a couple of ways we stretch our fashion dollar and stay on-trend each season. How do you keep up with the trends without keeping up with the Joneses? Let us know in the comment section below.

Yoplait® Original is proof that classic is always a good choice. We have more than 20 flavors that burst with the delicious, flavorful creaminess that isn’t just good, it is SO good, especially now that it’s made with natural colors, flavors and sweeteners. What can be more than SO good? The fact that Yoplait® Light is made in more than 20 flavors that contain 90 calories and 2 Weight Watchers® PointsPlus® value each. But the best part is the inspiration these fun flavors can be when it comes to fashion – how about a Key Lime Pie clutch or a little black forest cake dress. We believe the best fashion statements come from flavor inspiration. What flavor inspires you? Try a new one today and use it to plan your outfit tomorrow.
