Guest Post: Chic on the Cheap Trends

Hi all! I’m Lydia from Chic on the Cheap here to help welcome Melanie back!


I’m trying to think of some things that have changed since 2011; we are all still pattern mixing and color blocking, but now there is lot more neon, all over metallics, and anything that can have a monogram, gets a monogram. Windowpane and polka dots are trying to usurp stripes and leopard as the prints du jour, and sweaters with cute animals knitted on them are no longer just for kids. Also, you are going to need a statement necklace or two.


As for a little bit about what I’m wearing, colored denim and a sweater, layered with a fur vest, layered with a leather jacket – my way of trying to get around the need to wear my heavy winter coat for another day, and brighten up my winter wardrobe, which has been getting lost in a sea of neutrals these past few weeks.


Hope you like the look and will come visit me if you have a moment.

It’s so nice to have you back Mealanie – looking forward to seeing your outfit posts again!
