Style Your Budget: Fall Closet Staples

We love talking closet staples around GYPO and today’s edition of Style Your Budget covers just that! If you’re new around here, Style Your Budget helps you shop smarter by showing you one outfit prompt styled at five drastically different price points.

One of the things that makes Style Challenges work so well is that we don’t provide you the clothes. That may sound like a bad thing at first, but we promise it isn’t. By providing you with a style prompt rather than a box of clothes, you get to decide what the outfit ultimately looks like (and how much it costs).

If you already own all the pieces in the prompt you can shop your closet for a free outfit. Woohoo! However, if you need to fill in a gap in your wardrobe you get to choose which store, and more importantly how much you are going to spend, to fill in that gap.

This outfit is a fall look from the Closet Staples Casual Capsule Wardrobe Builder. (FREEBIE ALERT – Get the shopping list + 4 outfits from this capsule here.)
