$50 Fashion Fixes

Updating your look doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money. To keep costs under control, refresh pieces you already own rather than buying entirely new outfits. Genny Iannucci takes three basic outfits: jeans and a t-shirt, a basic suit, and a little black dress, and transforms them for $50.

Jeans and a White Tee, transformed for a grand total of $50.39

This cobalt blue tuxedo inspired jacket with contrast collar hits a style home run. It's right on trend in colour/shape/detail, and can take you right into evening with a little black dress.
