Affordable Back to School Looks, BCBG Max Azria Resort 2014

Are you struggling with the constant pull of new trends and all of the expenses that come with it?

As a newly emerged college student having to now plan out expenses based on meals and other necessities, I have had a hard time letting go of the thing that I love the most: fashion. However, with the right amount of dedication and inspiration, anything is possible.

Lourdes from UCLA created affordable ensembles inspired by BCBG Max Azria Resort collection for 2014 in this post for CollegeFashion.com.

This first look (feature photo) a patterned white shift dress, nude strappy wedges and simple-white purse will make any girl weak with envy.

By searching through stores praised for their low prices, Lourdes was able to provide her readers with a chance to recreate this look Boho chic look for a reasonable price.

The next high-priced runway look is comprised of flowy white pants, a black v-neck blouse and bulky black wedges. This shocking look for summer is suddenly in and allows for a more sleek and edgy look for summer.

Luckily, this look is easy to mimic on a smaller budget and perfect for mixing and matching!

I will be the first to admit that I think rompers are one of the greatest fashion pieces ever created.

They provide an effortless look to pull together. BCBG’s collection featured a classier version of the common romper with an unusual assortment of black in white, despite the colorful summer pallet we are accustomed to.

This simple look is easy to do yourself and perfect for almost any occasion.

I applaud Lourdes for a wonderful job providing her readers with a perfect replica of these stylish combos.

So when you are shopping for your new back to school clothes and dreading the inevitable dent in your savings account, remember that style is possible even on the tightest of budgets.
