Fashions for under $250, model
CBS/The Early Show
Looking for a stylish look without spending a lot of money can be difficult.

So The Early Show asked the editors of Marie Claire magazine (www.marieclaire.com) to find great summer fashions for head-to-toe that are stylish, and leave you money for other summer treats.

Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles visited the show Wednesday, with numerous possibilities.

All are fresh, fun and easy to wear, enabling you to just pack up and go. They came right off runways into stores

'70s-STYLE TROUSER

Limited:
Red Button Down $49.50
VANILLA STAR FOR MACYS: '70s Style Jean $48
American Eagle: Camel Wedge Sandal $22.99
Gap Straw Bag $19.99

TOTAL: $130.48

This is a great new trend anyone can wear. It really flatters, because it elongates the leg and cinches the waist. Paired with a simple button down or basic tank so the look doesn't WEAR you, this is a great alternative to the five-pocket jean

PRINTED DRESS

LUX: Dress $58
Urban Outfitters: Brown Sling-Back Sandal $38

TOTAL: $96

This is comfortable and easy for any woman to wear: Just throw on and go instantly chic with a flat or sandals. Prints are great for all body types, since they distract the eye.

CUFFED SHORT

Zara: Oversized Cardigan $59
Banana Republic: White top $64
GAP : Beige Cuffed Shorts $44.50
Zara: Silver Sandals $69

TOTAL: $236.50

Don't be scared of shorts. They're a great new trend for the season. A short with a cuff is an especially great way to go, because it's a little more subtle and classic then a regular short, which makes it more versatile. Pair with an oversized cardigan and button-down to make it more user friendly. By covering up a little on top, you're able to make shorts look smart and pulled together. Wear with a fashion-forward shoe such as silver sling-backs to really pull this look together

COLORED DENIM

Isaac Mizrahi for Target: White Blouse $24
Urban Outfitters: Purple Plaid Scarf $24
Bulldog: Hot Pink Jeans $49
Urban: Beige Embossed Sandal $38

TOTAL: $135

Colored denim is really fun, and a great way to wear your favorite pair of skinny jeans while making them modern and fresh for summer. Pair with a neutral-colored top and shoe to keep clean and streamlined. Add a fun accessory or a scarf to make this look your own.

CRAYOLA BRIGHT DRESS

ABS: Yellow Dress $155
Abaete for Payless: Black Patent Wedge $25
Aldo: Black Patent Clutch $40

TOTAL: $220

Make a splash at the next party or event you have in a great, bright-colored dress. Wear in a less fitted silhouette to keep the look fun and flirty for summer. Pairing it with a patent accessory makes it fun and a little more edgy.
