The common term at the moment is "unprecedented times".  Job losses, and job cuts, have seen people hit hard in the pocket because of the coronavirus pandemic. At this point, not everyone is in the mood for expensive fashion buys. Going shopping now takes careful planning and only happens once a week. People are trying to stay safe, and say it is food over fashion.

Fabulousity and affordability is the equivalent of designer Looks For Less, Steal His/Her Style and the like. It is with the aim to bringing pocket friendly fashion and style ideas based on celebrity or designer looks. While also encouraging us to look in our wardrobes which might just throw up long forgotten pieces that can be used to create a celebrity look without breaking the bank as we prepare  going back to work.

Our first style idea in this series is how to do florals and stripes. This look packs a punch. However, if you do not have the confidence to pull it off, I would advise you play safe and stick to style ideas that suit you.

The style choice on show came from the Valentino and Gianvito Rossi outfit  American socialite, enterpreneur and fashion influencer, Olivia Palermo wore to the Paris fashion week in October 2016. Her prints combo caught me wholeheartedly. However, with its hefty price tag, a pocket friendly version was in the right order.

My outfit was from Boohoo, F&F Asos and Celine. Celine might be pricey for some, but you can acquire any of the outfit combinations according to what you are able to afford. My take was a layered top, multi coloured platform heels, and a turquoise tote. To give it an African twist, pick up that lovely multi floral ankara A line skirt lying forgotten in your wardrobe, it will work perfectly with this look. As earlier said, pulling this off, requires confidence. It would be brilliant to see one of you try this out. My fabulousity and affordability version of this outfit is nowhere near its over $3000 mark.
