The title kind of sounds like a 70's game show, but this was a fun assignment! I set out to scour the streets of Soho and build a versatile summer outfit that cost no more than $100. I thought this would be pretty difficult. I've typically associated lower priced items with poor quality and fit. But I was pleasantly surprised and so was my wallet!
I anchored the look in light gray shorts from Joe Fresh ($19). They were being advertised as part of a Father's Day special so I thought they might be a little too "mature" for my taste. But I was quite pleased with the slim cut of the leg and the perfect length. I picked up a chambray shirt from the same shop (also $19) to use as a layering piece. I picked up these floral statement sneakers ($10) and short-sleeved henley ($20) from Urban Outfitters. For just $70, I built a light, simple, airy summer look with money to spare.
With big box value retailers owning the retail game right now, shoppers can expect to find quality pieces at unbelievable prices. Maybe the $100 style challenge is too easy? How about the $50 style challenge?
