It might not be “something blue” or “something borrowed,” but savers, my new outfit is BIG news for the upcoming season, hello #TangerStyle Holiday!
So, you know me – every season I try and step out of my comfort zone. Remember my green blazer? My orange dress? It’s not like I put those on and walked out of my apartment thinking I owned the city. But, I knew they were worth the investment, so here I am with yet another statement piece.
Ta-da, my “something different.” A pleated skirt is an absolute must in my book and this one from DKNY is perfect for creating memorable holiday looks. I’ll be honest, it didn’t immediately catch my eye because my mind went straight to OOPR (out of price range – did I just coin that term)? BUT, I glanced at the price tag and low and behold, $93.99. Tell me you’re as shocked as I was. I thought for sure this was in the $200+ range. Let’s just say, I put it on and felt fabulous.
And the shirts? Just like in the photos, I’ll be swapping them out when I travel home for the holidays. I initially put it with this grey shirt from Saks OFF Fifth ($34.99), but black also works perfectly and it’s super easy to transition into spring with strappy sandals and a crisp white blouse. With all the wear this outfit is going to get, I’m going to need my favorite dry cleaner on speed dial.
I just can’t get over the versatility of this outfit and how much more I got for less. You know it wouldn’t be a #TangerSaver blog without my signature savings chart, so I of course included one below.
