Six Super Chic Transitional Outfits, All Under $180

Lately I’ve been feeling that although I do everything but shout from the rooftops about how chic and affordable the clothes at Uniqlo are, not enough people are listening. So Kyle and I put together six outfits perfect for the next few confusing months of transitional weather, each from Uniqlo and all under $180, tip to toe. Now that there are multiple stores open across the country as well as e-commerce, there is no excuse not to check it out.  You’re welcome.

Happy Shopping,

P.S. We are also kind of obsessed with Uniqlo’s line of modest clothing by Hana Tajima!

Back to School Week – $120

When September comes around, DC weather can be finicky. Most days it will still be 80 degrees, but some nights will start to get cool. Your trusty summer layer, the denim jacket, is still appropriate for the transition into the school year. I bought the cotton blouse below in 3 colors!

Uniqlo Extra Fine Cotton Short-Sleeve Blouse, $19.90

Uniqlo Cotton Tapered Ankle-Length Pants, $29.90

Uniqlo Denim Jacket $39.90

Uniqlo Chunky Heeled Shoes, $29.90

Burgundy Babe – $140

Feel the September breeze on your ankles with cropped pants, then add a moto jacket for a dinner out. Burgundy ponte pants, get into my online shopping cart now. I have the drape v-neck short sleeve blouse in a forest green I couldn’t resist, but have yet to wear it because it feels very fall. I may be back for more colors after I take it for a test spin.

Uniqlo Drape V-Neck Short-Sleeve Blouse, $19.90

Uniqlo Suede Riders Jacket, $69.90

Uniqlo Ponte Flare Cropped Pants, $19.90

Practical and Polished – $115

The combo of mustard and forest green screams fall, but the ivory pants and floral tee keep it appropriate for DC’s Indian Summer. In case you missed it, mustard is a very big color right now.

Entrepreneur Meeting – $150

My favorite Uniqlo U tee is the perfect pair for a blazer and jeans. Kyle discovered it for herself earlier this year and I promptly copied her, same perfect neutral color and all. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they have doubled down on this thick, luxurious tee with the release of numerous new, fabulous colors. Don’t you just love this inspired color combo Kyle came up with? This outfit has her name written all over it!
