What We'reWearing: All Things Pastel - The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

What We're Wearing: All Things Pastel

Written By: Robin Reetz

Winter white has been a big trend for years now – that’s nothing new.

But one trend that surprised us this year (and that we’re now loving) is the winter pastel. Think pale pinks, powder blues, and lilacs for a sweet, chilly-weather look.36H08GPBL_large

Pastels are really all we’re wearing these days. This sweet shell pink layering tee by Daniel Rainn ($34.99) is a favorite, we’re snuggling up with this cable sweater ($16.90) and this duster jacket ($85.28), and are ready to rocked Topshop’s Quilted Zip Front Mini Skirt ($68).

As far as accessories go, our picks are the Clarity Clutch ($42), the Gem Beanie ($16) and pale grey Knit Suede Slip-On Sneakers by Vans ($70).

What are YOU wearing this winter? Will you rock the winter pastel trend, or stick to darker tones? Let us know you’re thoughts in the comments, or send us a tweet @cheapchicas.

In our books, it’s not officially fall until you make the big nail polish switch. You know exactly what we’re talking about – there’s one day every fall season where you update your nail polish to deep, winter-worthy shades.

And that day, Chicas, officially marks the start of the cool weather season.

To help celebrate, we’ve put together a list of 9 of our favorite nail lacquers, all in deep shades. Which will you choose?

5 Winter-Ready Wrap Coats | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

5 Winter-Ready Wrap Coats

Written By: Katelyn Chef

Bundle-up, Chicas – winter is coming.

The good news is that colder weather brings the opportunity for a brand new coat, and this year we’re loving wrap coats. The wrap coat has a few signature features: It’s roomy, has a drop waist, bell sleeves, and a tie belt.

Wrap coats have been spotted all over the runways but unfortunately not at prices we can afford. Luckily, this Cheap Chica was able to find a few styles that won’t squeeze your wallet.

Take a look at 5 of our winter-ready wrap coats:5 Winter-Ready Wrap Coats | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Daily Deal: H&M's $25 Embroidered Top | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Daily Deal: H&M's Embroidered Top

Written By: Robin Reetz

At Cheap Chica’s, our favorite pieces are the ones that we can wear for multiple occasions. Pencil skirts that work with booties, flat sandals, and heels; blazers that dress up a professional look and work just as well on the weekends – you get the idea.Daily Deal: H&M's $25 Embroidered Top | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

H&M’s beaded embroidered top is the perfect example of a flexible, wear-all-the-time piece. This top is cut like a t-shirt, which gives it a casual vibe, but the beaded neckline gives it an elegant look. It’s also striped, and now marked down to $25 from its original price of $39.95– did we mention that?

Wear it with jeans, a perfect black skirt, on a date, at the office, on the weekend, and more. Now that’s a Daily Deal.

How would you style this piece? Leave a comment and let us know!

Star Style: Mindy Kaling | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Star Style: Mindy Kaling In Issa

Written By: Robin Reetz

Things we love: The hilarious, best-friend-worthy Mindy Kaling and every single episode of The Mindy Project.

Other things we love: All things orange and pumpkin for fall.

And while we definitely love Mindy in a graphic pumpkin dress while on-set for The Mindy Project, we don’t love the fact that this dress, anything else by London’s gorgeous Issa, is out of our budget. Way out of our budget.

Instead, we plan on picking up The You Autumn Know Dress ($41.99) from ModCloth and pairing it with some suede, side-zip booties ($69) from Urban Outfitters for a fun, fall, prairie look.

With our spare change, we’ll accessorize with a burgundy ZARA Mini Shopper bag ($59.90) and the simple Bar Bracelet Set ($19.99) from Mango.Star Style: Mindy Kaling | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

See? A similar look for SO much less.

If you’ve seen a celebrity look lately that you’d like to pull off for less, let us know! We just might feature it on the blog.
