The Look for Less: Express Plaid Sequin Back Shirt

Express plaid sequin back shirt as seen on McKenna Bleu
If you missed out on the Express plaid sequin back shirt that everyone was wearing last fall (most notably on fashion blogger McKenna Bleu - see how she styled her shirt HERE), then you're in luck because now you can get the look for less at JCPenney. The sequin back shirt I found is by Arizona and comes in four colors for just $24.99! Do no be confused by my collage (above): The front and back of the shirt is the same color, they just don't show the sequins on all colors in the product details on (Did that make any sense?!) Any at rate, this plaid shirt makes a lot of sense for the stylish girl who wants to stand out from the plaid crowd, and the shining sequin detail on the back does just that.

Camo Cool: Taraji P. Henson's Print Leggings and Slip-On Sneakers Look for Less

Taraji P. Henson's camo leggings and cap sleeve tank look for less
In case you haven't noticed, I'm really feeling camo this fall (see for example this post), and apparently, so is Taraji P. Henson, who rocked this print on a pair of leggings before appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The 'Empire' star kept things simple yet undeniably cool with a black cap-sleeve top, slip-on sneaks and oversized leather tote, and while I'm guessing her pieces are all designer, we were able to easily recreate this casual look on a budget. It's a fall outfit you can wear now if it's still warm (ahem, California) or later with layers...denim jacket, leather moto jacket, boyfriend blazer, or chunky sweater, to name a few options. Read on to get the look for less - nothing's over $35!
