Fashion on a Budget: Outfits Under £25 (Guest Post)

If you follow Shona you will know she is doing a series called Fashion on a Budget at the moment. Shona posted on twitter asking if anyone would be interested in guest blogging within the series. So, before I start I just wanted to thank Shona for the opportunity, and wanted to introduce myself to you! My name is Chloe and I am a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger, read my blog herefeel free to check it out after you have read this!

 Shona basically told me I could do whatever I wanted but just stated I should make sure it stays within the topic of budget fashion so I thought why not make three outfits that are under £25; casual, smart and a night out outfit for under £25, meeting many peoples preferences.

All links are at the bottom of each outfit!

Casual- £24.98


I really like this outfit and feel it would be great for a sunny day! The floral top is a crop top but would look great with the leggings, I wear this sort of outfit with white converse but as this is budget I feel for the price these shoes are a real bargain! I added the bracelets for a little bit of glam but obviously you could wear this without them and the outfit would then only cost £20.98 which is amazing!

All of these items are from Select Fashion which is a cheap yet amazing store! I love this website as I can get 15% off student discount which is great news for any students!

Smart- £25


This is a smart-casual outfit; I really love this is it can be worn to work on a nice day or can even be worn out for a meal with the family, it has a sophisticated yet glam look about it. The dress has floral print which really compliments the black collar and belt. The black shoes are a bargain and match the outfit giving you comfy footwear. Finally the outfit is finished with the pink daisy earrings which cost £2.00! They are beautiful and really add a bit of glam.

Night Out/Party- £29.99

Okay, I may have gone over by £5 and hit £30 for this outfit but it costs £24.99 if you remove all thehe jewellery so technically you can still buy this on a budget and look fab!

Okay, so firstly I think this dress is gorgeous! It is simple but elegant as the lace around the collar makes it look so nice and adds a bit of wowza to your look. Also as it is a skater dress, it is less restricting meaning you can bust some moves on the dance floor without looking like a caterpillar stuck in a dress. (Oh I know you are picturing this in your head). The wedges are the perfect shoe for this dress and only cost £10 in the BooHoo sale which is amazing!

As mentioned I have gone over the budget by £5 but I'm a girl, what do you expect?! Again, you can finish the look with jewellery you may already own but as this is a whole outfit I was not happy enough uploading it with no jewellery as I just love a bit of fake gold. The earrings only cost £2 I mean come on....you NEED to grab this bargain! The bracelet matches the earrings and costs £3 meaning you would be a fool to miss out! I find the gold jewellery really helps to finish the outfit giving it something glam while matching, which makes you look super organised. I also find matching jewellery always makes people think you have spent more money on it, meaning you will look super cute!

Best Bargain Fashion Shops!

As a student I know money is limited so it is important to grab your bargains. I thought to finish this I would just leave you with some of the best shops for clothes, jewellery and what ever else you may need. A lot of these sites actually offer student discount which can be anything from 10% to 15% and sometimes you can even get 20% off!


These are just a few of my favourite places to buy some nice clothes and accessories; yes two of them are supermarkets, but honestly I feel some of the F&F and George stuff is so nice and a real bargain! I think some people forget that labels don't mean everything.

Thanks so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed! I would once again like to thank Shona for letting me guest post on her blog, it has been a pleasure! Follow Shona and give her some love, also feel free to follow me for more posts like this in the future!

See you soon,
Chloe
