Ideal Closet: Under £100

Just before the New Year Shayne Renee left a comment on the Ideal Closet post of that week asking if I could put a less than $100 outfit. I am more familiar with the British High Street so here is my first (of a series) of "in-budget" outfits. 
The total of this outfit is bang on £100 and I love how colorful and joyful it is. Those pin tuck trousers will be a closet saviour and can be worn up or down non stop, and by just adding some fun accessories a completely different look can be created every time. And at that price it's a bargain, wish they had my size!
What do you think? Is this something you would be interested in seeing more often?

Trousers: French Connection (on sale) £33 | Shirt: Topshop £36 | Belt: Asos £6 | Ring: Asos £9 | Shoes: New Look £16

I won't be including bags and coats in these more budget (and less dreamy) outfits as I believe these are pieces most of us have as closet staples and don't change as often.
