Street Style (for less)

Over the last few years, "Street Style" has grown in popularity around the world. This look is defined as "any offbeat or avant-garde fashion inspired by the contemporary culture of urban street people."

How great! While I'm doing one of my favorite pastimes "people watching", I can actually find ideas for new outfits. (Unless I'm looking at "the people of Walmart" -- Ha!) The outfit below would cost more than $8,000, but with a little searching, you can snag the look at a fraction of the cost.

A substitute for the leather print faux fur coat is a more reasonable $178 at Nordstrom.

And a very similar black bag is available at  Pink Soda for $47.
Finally, you can buy a pair of similar flats for  $32 at Sole Society.
"Street Style" can reveal great trends, but with thoughtful shopping you can create your own new and less expensive look!
