How to get this Outfit for Less

Love this outfit, The Zoe Report, Sundance street style

Every morning I get The Zoe Report in my inbox. It’s a great little blog on fashion from none other than Rachel Zoe. She gives tips on what’s hot, what’s not and everything fashion forward. Last week the report touted the coolness of a warm little layered outfit that would be perfect for Sundance or anywhere else it’s cold. This outfit had just the right amount of casual/cool to appeal to me.


Tailored camel coat, Chadwick's of Boston 89.95
I loved the business like tailored long wool coat. The easy casual feel of skinny jeans and a pullover sweater were right up my style alley and it was finished off with a pair of rad motorcycle styled short black boots with buckle details. The accessories of a cute grey beanie and some cool shades to keep the winter glare out of your eyes gave just the right flare. Unfortunately I didn’t like the price.


New York & Company Waverly Sweater, $12, comes in grey
While Rachel Zoe probably has a budget that far exceeds mine, I still want this look without breaking the bank and I think I found it. The featured items were a Joseph Camel Coat for $895, a J. Crew Ribbed Sweater at $218, MIH High Rise Skinny Jeans at $256, and Balenciaga Buckle Strap Ankle Boots for $1275. I don’t know about you but that comes to approximately $2644 and that doesn’t include the $10 beanie from H&M or sunglasses.


New York & Company Curve Creator Skinny Jean, $45
My budget friendly alternatives include a long wool coat from Chadwick’s of Boston at $89.95, New York & Company Waverly V-neck Sweater at $12 and their Curve Creator Skinny Jeans $45 which all make great substitutes. I also found some cute faux leather black buckle boots at Cathy Jeans for $44. I think I’ll stick with the $10 beanie at H&M and wear my Ray-Ban Wayfarers I bought a few years ago. My picks come to $190.95, way more doable.
