When you just spent all your extra money on textbooks and a ticket home for Thanksgiving (or, let’s be honest, late-night food carts), but your closet needs a cold-weather update, you may feel like you’re out of luck. Don’t despair – it’s resale to the rescue! Gather together some past favorites to trade in. Then, head down to your local Buffalo Exchange to put together a complete outfit for less than you’d spend on a single item elsewhere. We show you how with these four looks for $50 or less.
Keep It Classic
Noah is going for classic and timeless in this khaki Kenneth Cole Reaction blazer ($18) paired with a checkered J Ferrar button-up ($15) and a great pair of dark-wash jeans from Gap ($17). At a total cost of $50, this outfit is a no-brainer.
Kirsi is mixing up the 90s minimalism trend with just a hint of the 70s. She’s wearing a vintage denim skirt ($16) and an Urban Renewal sweater vest ($19) layered over a Noble U mock neck tee. Paired with her favorite necklace and a comfortable pair of black ankle-strap booties, this outfit is perfect for a fun fall outing. At the low cost of $49.50, she’ll even have extra money for a venti Pumpkin Spice Latte, extra whipped cream!
Meghan has an adorable rocker vibe going in this great dark-wash denim jacket ($16) and babydoll floral dress from Be Cool ($22.50). She completes her outfit with a cute pair of sunnies and sandals. When the weather cools down even further, you could just as easily swap these out for tights and ankle booties. Total cost of this ensemble? Just $48!
Bre is ready for a downtown art walk in this edgy Bohemian look. She’s transitioning a burgundy Iris mock neck tank ($11) into fall with a cozy Forever 21 sweater ($14) and a great pair of Gap jeans ($20). It’s hard to pass up this much style for the low price of $45!
