Trends come and go, so I usually avoid spending much on them. If you want to try a trendy piece without buyer's remorse, the key is to find a budget-friendly version in a fast fashion store.
This week's Fabulous Find is a great example: a pair of pointed-toe, slingback flats from the Who What Wear collection at Target. These flats (also known as slipper mules) are very trendy at the moment, but at less than $30, you won't be breaking the bank to give them a try.

Though trendy, these flats are surprisingly versatile! Here are a few ways to wear them:
It can be tricky to look chic and be comfortable at the same time, but this outfit achieves the perfect balance. Dress down these slip-on flats with some ripped boyfriend jeans, and add a cozy striped sweater on top. To make the ensemble polished enough for a coffee date or other weekend outing, add a pair of statement earrings and a cute crossbody bag.
Do you work in an office environment? If so, switch up your usual work unifom with something a bit more trendy and stylish. These black flats pair perfectly with a pair of plaid trousers and a blue oxford button-down shirt. If there's a chill in the air, throw on a sleek navy coat as well. Use a pretty pink lipstick to add a little feminine touch to the final look.
Want to stand out from the crowd at your next holiday party? Try this nontraditional yet chic and sophisticated look. Instead of the typical sequin dress, try a bright red jumpsuit with a tie waist. Give your feet a break from heels and wear these trendy flats instead. When accessorizing, balance out the look with classic pieces like a gold clutch and chunky statement necklace.
