Styling A Going Out Look On A Budget

black white stripe skirt burgundy jumper topshop outfit gave me an imaginary budget of £100 to create an outfit using items from brands they represent. These items had to have a deal going on, so for example, they needed to be in the sale, have a discount code or on a special offer, in order to qualify as part of the outfit. I’ve had a lot of fun collaborating with them on this as I love to make up and plan outfits!

My total imaginary money spent for this whole look was actually £92, so I was well within the budget for this outfit! I chose a black and white thick striped skirt with a burgundy cropped jumper, both in the sale from Topshop. I love black and white stripes at the moment as you know, I love how well they go with burgundy! I would actually wear the jumper with the sleeves rolled up for style. I then chose a pair of black platform sandals in the sale from Miss Selfridge to keep within the style and to elongate the legs.

For the accessories, I chose a black heart ring and a gold/silver beaded bracelet pack, both from Miss Selfridge which offer 10% off for students, so if I was a student, I would use this discount. Then lastly, for nail polish, I chose a metallic red for most of my nails and then a gold shade for the ring fingers. Both of these are from Topshop and on offer at the moment, 2 for £10.

So you can see that everything I chose here had an offer on and I think the website is really useful as you can find the deals you want, all in one place. The deals are new and up to date as well! It’s definitely very helpful! So, what do you think of the look?
