It’s been a long time since I last posted an ‘Outfit on a Budget’; the last one was near November last year. And in between then and now, there have been numerous interesting outfits (in my opinion, at least) that would make a good selection for this post. That being said, I think the most interesting to-date has been the outfit from last week’s post, featuring that embroidered denim jacket by Zara. The statement jacket is always a look that directs attention onto yourself, and so, this post may not be for everyone. Though, since that particular denim jacket is no longer available anywhere online, I’ve found it rather difficult to find a substitute. It truly is a unique piece, unlike any other denim jacket I’d ever seen before, high-street or high-end. So, rather than have this post fall to pieces because of the apparent lack of beautiful embroidered denim jackets, I thought I’d pick out an array of different statement jackets that you could pull this look together with. There’s a leather jacket, some embroidery, and even some patchwork, and each jacket has its own unique design quirk. Also worn in that outfit post – which, by the way, if you haven’t checked out yet, you can do so here: https://nikpxtxl.com/2017/01/31/48-ootd-29-01-16/ – was a pair of Cheap Monday corduroy jeans. These jeans, too, have disappeared into Cheap Monday’s archives, away from the grasp of any desiring customers, but I did manage to find a couple of replacements for these; one of which, it must be said, is not suitable for a tighter budget, but I’ve included it regardless because I’m sure all of your budgets vary greatly. I’ve tried to offer at least two options for each aspect of the outfit, unlike in previous posts of this kind, and so, there are a lot of pieces on here that you may wish to pick up for the purposes of your own styling, rather than to recreate something similar to my look. I’ve included a handful of t-shirts, a couple of smart black belts, and a few choices of footwear.
I hope you guys find something, at least, that piques your interest. Let me know in the comments if you do decide to pick anything up! Cheers.
