8 Under $20: Newport News

For a long time, I thought Newport News was a total “mom store” with terribly outdated and, well, momish stuff.  Then, a few months ago  I noticed some of their stuff in mags like Lucky, InStyle and Glamour and realized that they actually had some super cuteness going on.

Since then I’ve bought several items from them and they’re not only stylish and well-made, they’re great for a gal on a budget. Which is me. And you.

I combed the entire website and found so many adorable things, many for under $20, but here are my top 8, MySpace style:

I love simple jersey dresses for their comfort and versatility…you can wear this with flip flops/sandals, flats, wedges or super sexy heels for a totally different look every time (not to mention, it comes in a wide array of colors).

This peasant style top is a great way to change it up from that basic tee and it looks great with everything from jeans to pencil skirts to wide leg trousers (and once again it comes in a great range of colors).

Leopard print is all over the place this season and this tank (which comes in a pack of 2; 1 print & 1 black) is the perfect way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. Wear it by its lonesome or under a boyfriend blazer or blazer.

Close-toed wedges are a great shoe for fall and early winter and with the ankle strap, they look super cute with tights.  They have them in a deep red that is perfect for this fall’s red trend.

I love the cut and sleeves of this tunic – totally unique from any other tunics lining your closet. It will look great with that summer tan, some skinny jeans or leggings and a cute pair of flats, boots or heels.

This sweater may look a bit frumpy at first glance, but it has potential to not only be super comfy and cozy come fall/winter, but it’ll also look super cute with a pair of skinny jeans and some riding boots.

Bangles are a great way to jazz up a basic ensemble and I love the woven texture of this one. Plus, at under $5, it’s really hard to say no.

It’s all about going girlie this season with lace, ruffles and other feminine details and this shirt incorporates both lace and ruffles. Hello, more trend for your buck! It’ll look great on it’s own with some fun accessories, or under a cardi or cropped blazer.

Yeah, so clearly we’ve all missed the memo on Newport News. This store will most definitely be in my “online shopping while extremely bored in lecture” rotation. You might want to add it, too.
