I Love Your Style: Katie

This week, I’m loving Katie’s style. As one of my closest friends and roommate for several years after we graduated from college, Katie and I know each sometimes all too well. And while I’ve always been jealous of Katie’s size 0 figure, I’m even more envious of her ability to pull together on-trend outfits by accessorizing key staples with affordable statement pieces, such a scarves and jewelry.

Although Katie has at least two closets worth of clothes, she is undoubtedly a smart shopper. But she’s careful not to skimp on quality, especially when it comes to the staples. Her advice for finding great pieces without breaking the bank?

  • Sign up for daily emails on flash sales sites such as Rue La La and Gilt.
  • Visit outlet style retailers such as TJ Maxx or Nordstrom Rack as early in the day as possible. Most of these stores receive daily shipments so it’s best to get there shortly after the open for the best finds.
  • Shop at the end of the season. It’s a great way to score deals on classics like a trench or a LBD that won’t go out of style.
  • Take advantage of holiday sales, such as the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas. Katie scored her Frye Melissa boots, below, on sale at Macy’s the weekend after Thanksgiving.

For trendy, budget-friendly accessorizing, Katie’s favorites include Forever 21, VeryJane, the sale racks at local boutiques, and her sister’s closet.
