>> this morning on "today's style," how to wear one trend at any age for under $100. patrice williams is a fashion blogger. her website is called looking fly on a dime. patrice , good morning.
>> good morning.
>> good to have you.
>> all about budgets and still looking good while doing it. these are trends you say any woman, any size can wear.
>> any woman, any style, whatever her budget. is your style is never determined by your wallet and we'll show you how to do one trend.
>> let's start off with sunny in, her 30s, means she has a little more license to go wild.
>> this look is really about being fun and funky, and as you can see she's mixing the prints which is something that a lot of women are afraid to do, but it's so easy,'s especially when there's one color.
>> the striped top with the print pants.
>> some team are afraid of doing stripes. vertical, lange and lean versus the horizontal wide stripes.
>> and a very thin stripe.
>> super figure flat sglerg and a that really completes it all. you look great. thanks. let's bring out patty now in her 40s and she's wearing the trend of an animal print cardigan that you're seeing everywhere. a little bit animal print goes a long way.
>> it's been everywhere. easy way to make a statement without going overboard and animal print is really a neutral so it looks great with a little black dress which every woman has in her closet and this is a great professional look as well. making a statement again, but without being overboard and not professional.
>> by the way, the price of the cardigan.
>> lace than $25.
>> a cute statement on a budget.
>> great piece to have in your wardrobe. let's bring out patty who is in her 50s, and she's wearing two trends. the colors black and white .
>> but also this print.
>> this is june and she's in black and white . a trend within a trend. it's really chic, especially for a woman who doesn't want to do a really colorful print. she also has the red pop of color and all trying to find pieces that are figure-flattering. the ruching is great for figures. has a pop of color so she's not boring at all.
>> thank you. looks great and lastly a lady who is representing those laidies in her 60s, hard to believe. lack at her accessories, you look great.
>> all about the accessories. if you don't want to go to a head-to-toe look or with the garment, accessories are the easiest and quickest way to update your style. she has floral. the color is much more subdued with the scarf, fall appropriate and has the hounds tooth bag and that scarf is less than 15 bucks.
>> tying all the colors together. common, pink, black and white .
>> all complement each other so it's not too busy and overwhelming.
>> they look great, and all of these, by the way, under $100.
>> under $100 for each trend.
>> ecnomizes well. big budget tip where you like to shop?
>> i like vintage shopping, that takes a lot of patience but even with the major department stores , all about having patience, going in and having fun and you'll find some amazing bargains.
>> really kind of knowing yourself, too, right? all of these ladies say they have just gorgeous, you know, sense of style.
>> it's about bringing it out.
>> knowing your figure and just because something is a trend, do what works for you and your style and your size, of course.
>> great job. patrice williams, thank you so much.
>> great job to you, ladies. thanks so much for being here.
