What We're Wearing: Knit Beanies | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

Have you noticed? All of us at Cheap Chica’s are big hat fans. Like, really big hat fans. Nothing completes an outfit quite like a good hat – no matter if it’s fun and sporty, a classic wide brim hat, or our winter standby: the slouchy knit beanie.

Our favorite beanies are as cute as they are cozy, and will help to give even the plainest of winter outfits that “just off the slopes” look. This year, we’ve added the Space Dye Beanie ($20), the Pom Cuffed Beanie ($14), and the Marled Knit Beanie ($3.90!) to our collections, and are eyeing Target’s $6.48 beanie. You can never have too many, right?

All are cute, cozy, and make the perfect accent piece to any outfit.

What’s your hat of choice, Chicas? Are you a beanie gal or do you prefer wide brim?

Look For Less: Front Split Midi Skirts | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Look For Less: Front Split Midi Skirts

Written By: Robin Reetz

Here at Cheap Chica’s, we love front split midi skirts. There’s something about these skirts that feels chic, sexy, and a little bit 70s. They also work well with a wide variety of shoes – from knee high boots to ankle boots and even sandals.Look For Less: Front Split Midi Skirts | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Jason Wu’s Crepe Pencil Skirt has been on our wish list for a while. After all – it’s Jason Wu. How could it not be? But that $995 price tag has held us back for (very) obvious reasons.

ASOS to the rescue. While the Split Front Pencil Skirt is slightly different in style, for only $32.22 this skirt will give you the exact same effect for a tiny percentage of the price.

So Chicas – which will you go for? Let us know by leaving a comment!
