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!

Aargh! Dianna, I have to quit reading your fashion blogs..expensive..last week I bought Chelsea black rubber boots you mentioned from Last Call Nieman Marcus, (boots fit my size to a tee, well-made), today went to JCrew web site...bought shirts, jewelry, jeans, then in my haste forgot to add extra 30% off! but for $3.99 for a shirt, can't complain! Thank you seriously though for guiding us all through great fashion picks!

Margot you can still ask for the 30% off by calling their 800# for the adjustment. I love Budget Babe. It is also one of my daily reads.

Brenda to the rescue! What a great tip! Please don't stop reading, Margot, I will try to post less appealing items from now on ;-)
