The look for less: Stella McCartney kidswear

Here’s my take on recreating the Stella McCartney little guys collection for fall 2010. I picked out a few looks from her collection and played around with pieces in my little boy’s wardrobe. I also bought a few pieces, which I’m glad I did, because it wasn’t until I started putting the looks together I realized how many different looks I could create with just these pieces.

Look 1:

Key pieces:

Turquoise jeans($57)
Striped tee/sweater($61)
Black quilted jacket($99)
Yellow wellies(item not yet available for sale)

My take:

Turquoise jeans – Levis $22
Striped cardigan – Guess kids $35Alternate link. If you’d rather get the look with a tee, here’s one
Black jacket – target $25
Yellow Wellies – Hunter $50Alternate budget link

Look 2:

Key pieces:

Fair isle sweater($145)
Turquoise jeans($57)
Yellow wellies(item not yet available for sale)

My take:

If any of you have put together a look for less out there, please feel free to share.

If you haven’t tried one of these exercises just yet, give it a shot, it’s a lot of fun. Achieving a more affordable option for something that you don’t feel justified enough to spend a whole lot of money on is a very satisfying experience!
