Outfit Under $75: A Bright Idea

Hey college girls, it’s time for another round of stylish, yet budget-conscious shopping! Thankfully, there are plenty of places out there that offer adorable clothing at awesome prices. And while it is good to splurge on some important staples, there are others that are just as easy to save on. As in fun, easy pieces that are right on trend for the season, like the ones in this outfit!

Brights are a huge trend for this season, and it makes perfect sense to break out your funnest colors in the summertime! But to avoid looking too over-the-top, you should avoid having too many brights in one outfit, and definitely make sure that the colors go well together. You can mix up your colors (think blue + coral or purple + green), go for a monochrome scheme (blues, anyone?), or rock a pattern (a bright tribal or geometric print would be such a focal point), but any way you wear your brights, you’re sure to get noticed!

Top: $19.50, Delia’s, Shorts: $15.80, Forever 21, Wedges: $22.49, Target, Hoops: $1.50, Forever 21, Bangle: $2, All The Rage Online, Necklace: $7.99, Fred Flare

Total: $69.28

This outfit is a balancing act, with two bright colors being the perfect medium between one color reserved and four colors fearless. Coral is such a trendy color right now, and looks great as a bright ruffled tube top. A perfect complement to the summery hue is a pair of extra blue denim shorts, which are just right for a hot summer day. To keep the rest of this outfit neutral, a simple pair of wedges and a few gold accessories will do the trick. Add a pair of shades to top it off, and your day will be looking bright!
