Under $100 Look: True Blues

Break up a denim on denim look with leopard print and a colorful scarf

Hello again! This week's Kohl's challenge was exactly how it sounds—a challenge! I never thought about styling denim on denim, but I am so happy I gave this trend a shot because I absolutely love it. Keep reading to see how I put together this casual fall outfit for less than $100 at my local Kohl's store.

I started with this Lauren Conrad chambray shirt. I love the gradient of color on this piece! The sleeves rolled up great and stayed in place. I also liked how the back was a little longer than the front.

To go under the chambray shirt, I added this Apt. 9 leopard top. I thought it was the perfect piece to compliment this denim-on-denim look. I rolled the sleeves of this shirt up with the chambray top to add a pop of print. I'm really loving animal prints this fall!

I tried on a ton of jeans in dark washes, hoping to contrast the lighter top. I loved the fit of these Lauren Conrad jeans! All her jeans fit so nicely while maintaining their shape, as I mentioned in last week's challenge.

The flats I chose for this outfit were also perfect for fall. There's still some sunshine in the weather here, and I thought I would take advantage of that. Nude heels have been on my "to-purchase" list for a while—so I figured I would start here!

As a final pop of color, I added in this Apt. 9 mustard scarf. I tied the back into an infinity scarf, but you could definitely wear it different ways. I struggled between coral and mustard, but love this look. The scarf is available in many different colors.

The total for this entire Kohl's outfit was $86.18, well under the $100.00 limit! What do you think of denim on denim? Let me know below!

I love this. I would have loved it with a red scarf or even a dark berry color as well. It looks great!

I absolutely love how you've styled denim-on-denim! :-) Sometimes denim-on-denim can get overbearing, but you surely rocked it with an animal print top and that gorgeous mustard scarf. Coral scarf would have been nice too, but mustard is more Fall appropriate, no?
