The one thing that can provide a real style challenge is budget. Never fear, you don’t need to have a lot of money to be stylish, as I teach my personal stylist and shopping clients. So today I have selected three terrific bargains, all under $50 that will add colour to your autumn and warmth to your winter.

SEED have stores nationally, are online and are in most David Jones stores too.
Classic nautical stripes never goes out of fashion and this T shirt is a great twist on a basic French Sailor’s top. The shallow V is a flattering neckline for all shapes
The low cap sleeve is a great length and shape to hide untoned upper arms – or as they say in my native Glasgow “tuckshop ladies’ arms”.
Pair this with a tailored cotton /wool straight or full skirt (to the knee) in white, denim – or if you are feeling daring metallic wool (one in Country Road) or black leather (Sportscraft) ! – some great flats – points, moccasins or loafers for easy transeasonal everyday wear.
For nautical chic pair with white/black linen pants and black patent ballet flats or white sneakers.
As it gets cooler layer under a long wool Coatigan in Black for extra warmth. No longer than mid thigh unless you are very tall. Pair with straight legged jeans or chinos – NO ¾ length cargo pants ever and no Capri pants unless you are slender-legged and rocking the whole Audrey Hepburn Parisian look otherwise it is old lady territory.
Asos is a giant UK Men and Women online store and now ships free to Australia. Returns are local post.
It is well loved and well trusted and stocks their own budget brand – right up to the best high quality brands from the UK including Whistles, Hobbs, House of Fraser, Fred Perry etc .
If you don’t know it – get to – it is one of my favourite sites to recommend – especially for those on a budget.
Brilliant statement piece for under $50AUD – throw over a basic white T shirt or blouse and pants and suddenly instant glamour. Easy to wear day and night.
For any occasion be it a Christening, Wedding, Big Birthday over a dress for any age or stage.

I love a bit of colour and these blue, leopard-print , leather, pony hair driving moccasins with black patent tassles are unreal – showstopping statement piece. You could be wearing your gardening trackie daks with these and you would still look stylish ! – I might have to buy them myself !
