I am OBSESSED with this BCBG outfit but $316 for a top and leggings is a bitter pill to swallow so I'm hoping you can find a more reasonable alternative. I would prefer to keep the outfit to $100-150 total and while I am open to other colors for the top, I would love it if you can find a black/white combo. I wear a size 8, thanks so much! Regards, Nicole."
Hey, Nicole! Thanks so much for being such a loyal Outblusher! I don't blame you for not wanting to pay over $300 for leggings and a top no matter how amazing the outfit may be! You have come to the right place. Below you'll see I found three tops and three pairs of leggings, all of which are within your budget and will turn heads as you walk by.
1. White Crochet Sheer High Low Sleeveless Blouse ($15)
2. ASOS Top With Double Layer And Drape Back ($51)
3. On The Side Lines Tank ($30)
4. Harley Panel Leggings ($30)
5. BDG Faux Leather Panel Legging ($39)
6. Coated Panel Moto Leggings ($15)
