FashionReal vs. Steal: Striped Pleated Skirt

Striped Pleated Skirt

Striped Pleated Skirt: The black and white trend has been one of the hottest ongoing looks of the year, and we see no end to its amazing versatility. A master of the cute collegiate look, Jil Sander Navy rocks the black and white trend along this clean-cut, striped pleated skirt with a midi-length hem… but as you’re used to finding out the hard way, that perfect prep look comes with a serious price tag. (LuLu*s to the rescue!) With a few inches shaved off the hem, the Don’t Miss a Pleat White and Black Striped Skirt gives you a girlier version of this look at a much more modest price. Who can argue with that?!

Break out the plaid flannel, distressed jeans, and some can’t-be-bothered boots for an updated take on Grunge fashion, and add a little dark make-up to really set the mood.

FashionReal vs. Steal: Black Leather Camisole

Black Leather Camisole

Black Leather Camisole: Some people make the simple tunics, tops, and skirts by Michelle Mason their everyday clothes, but for the girl with big city dreams and a small town budget, LuLu*s has the answer! This sexy black leather camisole by Mason is surely the kind of wardrobe staple every girl can use. Not only is our version (the Take Root Black Vegan Leather Top) totally affordable, but it’s also a great option for non-leather lovers.
