Long cardigans for all budgets | see all the picks at

Even in the dead of summer I am bound to be needing a light cardigan as I somehow always end up in places that think Arctic AC temperatures are necessary. These are perfect for adding a thin layer without the bulk and enough warmth to protect me from the frigid blasts of cold air. I rounded up some favorites for all budgets below!


1. Grey cardigan with eyelet cutouts {clearance – 71% off}

2. Pink linen blend cardigan {comes in 5 colors; one of closet favorites – I own them in 5 colors!}

3. Black cape cardigan {clearance – only $6!}

4. Marbled brown cardigan {one of my absolute favorite purchases from the Nordstrom anniversary sale – super soft – I could live in this all day!}

5. Tan ribbed cashmere cardigan

6. Burgundy red cocoon sweater {comes in 6 colors}

7. Beige textured cardigan {comes in 3 colors}

8. Ribbed side slit cardigan {comes in 2 colors}

9. Extra long beige cardigan {under $30 and comes in 3 colors}

10. Boucle open-front cardigan {only $35}

Style: ruffle wrap skirts starting at $8!

Style: ruffle wrap skirts | see all the picks at

A fun twist on the traditional skirt for the spring and summer season is the wrap skirt paired with a ruffle detail. Highlight the skirt details by keeping the top detail-free (think lightweight tank or camisole, or a solid color tee). Alternatively, make an eye-catching look by pairing the skirt with an equally detailed top. The options are endless and will always yield something amazing. I’ve rounded some of my favorites below!

I purchased this sleeveless trench coat during Nordstrom’s anniversary sale and have been long awaiting the cooler weather. I love how soft the coat is and with the neutral camel color, it pairs well with just about anything. The large lapel adds a statement to an otherwise ordinary sleeveless coat. This coat can be worn open as I have with this look but I can also envision giving it a more defined look pairing it against a monochrome outfit (i.e black top and black jeans) and cinching it off with a belt.

I absolutely love this statement necklace with its different sizes beads and gold links. This necklace transforms an otherwise plain outfit into a fun look. I kept the color palette simple with a black t-shirt and white jeans to not distract from the focal point of the necklace. Paired with some neutral flats and purse, and I’m all set!

The look for less: Kate Middleton

the look for less comment

I consider Kate Middleton’s style very chic and classy. She has been photographed in affordable fashion as well as high-end fashion. Whatever outfit she is in, she always makes it look effortless.
Kate Middleton Erdem dress


This Erdem lace overlay dress is figure-flattering and has a very feminine feel to it. The detail of lace makes it the focal point of the outfit and she pairs it well with her neutral nude-colored L.K. Bennett clutch and L.K. Bennett pumps. How can you too get this look without breaking the bank? Here’s how:
