AFFFORDABLE GUCCI CARDIAGN

Luxury pieces like a Gucci cardigan are surprisingly affordable when you are able to wear them often and style them to match your esthetic.

Working for Nordstrom taught me an appreciation for the quality that comes with luxury brands.

However, the best closets, including my own, I curate with a mix from Target to Chanel.

To demonstrate how easy it is incorporate luxury brands I asked Jennifer Kidwell, from Jenny Wears Vintage, to style this Gucci cardigan using her thrift store finds and vintage collection.

“Now more than ever, it is easy to mix old and new because new often looks old! Fashion is constantly repeating. When I do purchase a new item, I choose quality, staple pieces that will last.”

DON’T SAVE YOUR CLOTHES OR YOUR LIFE FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION

When I’m helping clients in their closets, I’m always finding fabulous pieces hiding in bags and boxes, preserved for a special occasion.

Use your favorite things. Wear them, ALL the time. It feels great!

This cardigan will be in style all year round forever. These sneakers and your classic white tank should be refreshed at the start of the season so they look new.

“My love for vintage that started at 13 years of age expanded to a love for designer pieces in adulthood because of the similarities they share: their quality is above par, they are made to last, they often withstand trends, and their value continues to increase over time.”

A GOOD PLACE TO START

when considering investing in a monogramed luxury piece is in your accessories.

A hand bag in a shape you can wear all the time will give you a lot of bang for your buck.

If you choose wisely it won’t matter if the outfit you wear with it is thrifted or from Target.

THE SECRET TO MAKING AN AFFORDABLE GUCCI CARDIGAN IS HOW YOU STYLE IT
