We are about to reach summer … the time for cooking, beach trips, sandals and casual clothes! To celebrate, we’re going to buy some new items from Amazon’s big Memorial Day clothing sale, right? I’m a New York City fashion designer, so I know a thing or two about style. And everything below is completely cheap. Don’t believe me? You can get the entire ensemble below, including the nice luggage to put on it, for about $ 250.
If you have Amazon Prime, you get free shipping, of course. Not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30 day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime can still receive free shipping on orders of $ 25 or more.)
And you know what else? It will all work together smoothly. Each item can be mixed and paired to give you multiple clothing options that will make you look as chic as possible without trying. Whether you’re at home or on vacation, the trick is to go monochromatic. Let me show you how …
1. A black maxi dress
The first thing to buy is the new black maxi dress. I have two for you to try depending on your body type. Both are great, so just consider your number. Or buy both because they sell for $ 25 and $ 26! A black maxi can take you from the beach or a picnic to a concert, dinner or BBQ. It’s hard to go wrong.
If you’re pear shaped, try this shirtwaist jersey from 12CRAZY.
$ 30 on Amazon
If you’re apple -shaped, try this Yahoo reader’s favorite from Grecerelle, which comes with pockets, a sexy split leg and a nice back detail.
$ 33 on Amazon
2. The perfect accessory-a new belt (or two)
Your new maxi can look very different if you wear it with some essential accessories. While you’re at the pool or on a picnic, wear maxi like that. However, if you want to level it up a notch I recommend trying a contrasting belt in white or a rich cherry red.
The Chic Diary braided tassel belt is a great option to wear with any top dress. Pull it close to the body and make a little blouse, or slap it under the Grecerelle and have a more elegant boho look.
$ 14 on Amazon
The Alaix belt has a late 1980s feel I dug into. It’s structural and playful while also dramatic against your new black maxi.
$ 19 on Amazon
The Grace Karin stretch cinch belt is a great option if you want a more classic French look. And it can be expensive to have a matching shoe that brings me to my next choice…
$ 14 on Amazon
3. A sexy shoe
These strappy wedges from Dream Pairs, which give you a little lift while still providing comfort, are available in white and red to coordinate with your gorgeous new belt. Plus, they’ll do a double duty on your new drapey tshirts, which is next on the list.
$ 38 on Amazon
4. Versatile flowy tops
Both of these ends provide nice details and a loose fit. Wear it like your new black leggings (see below) or belt it up to pair with a summer skirt already in your closet. I would buy a tank and tee in black and white and wear the black tank one day with a red belt and red dinner shoes, and then the white tee the next day, with the same leggings and a pair of white ballet flats. .
This famous tee from Wiholl has a petal split sleeve.
$ 21 on Amazon
This Xieerduo tank has a nice lace trim – and it’s just under $ 13!
$ 22 on Amazon
5. A casual flat
If you haven’t owned white ballet flats yet I recommend this chic pair. You love how they enhance your everyday look. It has an ankle strap that adds a nice detail.
$ 51 on Amazon
6. A pair of classic leggings
Get three packs of these buttery soft high-waisted leggings for just $ 21. That’s only 7 bucks a pair for this fan-favorite set. If it’s a hot weekend, there are a couple of extras. The high waist is both chic and fits your belly well. Buy black for sure.
$ 21 on Amazon
7. Sunglasses as needed
For a little extra oomph, try red sunglasses – that old -fashioned Hollywood look is absolutely irresistible. EFE’s classic oversized polarized sunglasses are $ 14 with an on-page coupon, which is less than I paid for my turkey sandwich in New York City yesterday! No, I’m not kidding. I enjoyed my turkey sandwich for about 15 minutes between meetings, but you can wear it for years to come for the same price.
$ 14 with coupon
$ 17 on Amazon
8. The shocking tote bag of all
You’ll throw all of these things into the most beautiful bargain ever seen, the leopard suitcase from Rockland. At $ 61 it’s a lifetime theft – it can save you 62%! And when you get to your destination you can close your eyes, reach for your suitcase and pick up any two of your recent purchases-I guarantee you can wear them.
Happy Memorial Day!
