Fashion on a Budget | OOTD under £25 #1

When it comes to clothes I like to be very comfortable most of the time but I don't always want to just lounge around in my onesie all day. I've been wearing this little ensemble a lot recently as it is comfy, simple and a little stylish, maybe? It also costs under £25 which is fab considering my Topshop treggings cost more than that (we can all splurge every once in a while).

Houndstooth Leggings* | £5 | Vantage Fashion
Grey 3/4 Length Sleeve Loose Top* | £8.95 | WearAll
Black Cardigan | £5 | Everything5Pounds
Shoes | Primark | £4
= £22.95

I'm loving patterned bottoms at the moment as you can probably tell! I have very slim legs that I think look like sticks so wearing patterns can make them look a little bigger which I like. For only £5 as well you can't go wrong and Vantage Fashion also have lots of other leggings for £5, I've got my eye on the Gingham ones (surprise, surprise). I'm loving anything monochrome at the moment so this is a very 'me' outfit. I adore this WearAll top as well, these photographs don't highlight the beauty in its simplicity though. It has 3/4 sleeves with little buttons on the end and it hits me in all the right places. It is a little tighter around the top and then it floats over my stomach and doesn't cling to any areas that I definitely don't want highlight, like my stomach. 

The cardigan and shoes are just basic staple wardrobe pieces that everyone needs as well. The shoes are especially a bargain as you can get them in lots of different colours in Primark for only £4 so they would be perfect for the Summer, you can add a pop of colour to your outfit with them. If you like to wear more colour you could always add a bold necklace to this outfit as well, Primark do some for only a few pounds so you could still come in under £25!

Would you wear this outfit? Or do you prefer to wear more colour?

  1. I usually prefer more colour, which is evident from my blog http://www.driftingtraveller.me . But, I really like your treggings! Checks, houndstooth, tartan, geometric prints are next on my favourites list.

    1. I have been getting into wearing more colour recently but you can never go wrong with a monochrome outfit :) I'm loving all of those prints as well! x

  2. I'm definitely more of a colour girl. I am so jealous of your slim legs!
    Definitely thought this outfit would've been a lot more expensive.

  7. Amazing outfit on so a low budget! The leggings are very cool, I think that black and white is a classy combo. With printed bottoms there's no need to add more colors.
