Fashion has gotten expensive. This isn’t exactly news, but it sometimes still blows my mind how much things cost – $900 for a tee-shirt? $500 for a pair of flats? In this day, when one item in your outfit can cost almost as much as a month of rent, more and more companies that were once viewed as less-than-trendy are designing products that are affordable and stylish. Here are a couple to check out:
1. Birkenstock – Once known for simple 2-strap sandals, this company has grown to make some of the cutest and most comfortable sandals. I’ve had 2 fun pairs for a few years now and STILL get compliments. People are always surprised to find out that my metallic silver toe-wrap sandals or my t-strap black patent sandals are made by Birkenstock. They also have many veg-friendly options! (All options below found here and here.)
2. Land’s End. The source of many grade school backpacks and plain turtlenecks has developed a younger, more stylish line called Canvas. They have many cute options including fun dresses and comfy chambray shirts!
