How To Get "The Gucci Look" While On A Budget
While we all love us some Gucci, not everyone can afford to drop a few stacks on the latest Gucci threads. But that doesn't mean we don't appreciate the luxury brand's aesthetic. Many style enthusiasts are inspired by high-end fashion designs and thanks to fast-fashion brands, those of us on a budget can recreate our favorite Gucci inspired looks for a fraction of the price.
If you're a fan of the all-Gucci-everything movement, here are 5 wallet-friendly styling ideas to rework your look with a Gucci inspired twist.
Accessorize To The Max - From sheer glitter socks to oversize rhinestone-embellished sunglasses and leather berets, the easiest way to add a Gucci-esque feel to your look is with a few standout and over-the-top accessories. The trick is to pack a few of these statement pieces into one look to create a "fashion week runway" feel.
Borrow From Your Grandmother's Closet - Not literally, but for these past few seasons, Gucci has mastered the look of elderly chic, so granny might just be the best source to recreate your wardrobe. Pearl embellishments, oversize cardigans, embroidered knits, and midi pleated skirts will create an unexpected Gucci-like outfit.
Fancy Feet - Upgrade your shoe game and opt for metallic, embellished, and embroidered luxe heel, loafer, and sneaker options to give your look that Gucci inspired vibe.
Bold Bombers & Statement Fur - Dress in metallic and plush fur options that standout. *Style Tip: pair a bold bomber or fur coat with a printed button down blouse or logo/slogan tee for the ultimate Gucci-esque look.
Suit Up - Rock matching blazer and trouser sets in playful prints and bold colors for an on-trend and oh-so-Gucci style moment.
What do you think of today's "Gucci on a budget" styling tips? Do you prefer the real deal or is designer-inspired fashion your thing?
*Style Tip: If you're looking for the "real deal", but you're on a budget, save your coins and invest in a timeless piece like a crossbody bag, a signature wallet, or a pair of Gucci shades that you can wear season after season.
