It’s easy to get wrapped up in the seemingly effortless appearance of our favorite celebrities when we’re seeing Instagram snaps or street style shots of their literally picture-perfect outfits day after day. I’m sure you’ve at times wondered how they do it. Well, what we often have to remind ourselves is that there’s actually team of people working hard to make these stylish moments happen—and at the helm of those teams are stylists.
And while It girls do wear their fair share of high-priced designer goods, the best dressed ones tend to mix in a handful of affordable pieces as well. That’s why I recently reached out to six of the aforementioned celebrity stylists to get the lowdown on the under-$100 items we should all be buying now. And from accessories to dresses to denim, their answers did not disappoint; read on to see and shop their picks.
“Commando low-rise seamless thongs are an essential part of my personal wardrobe, and I always have multiple pairs on hand in my kit. This seamless pair of underwear shows no lines and can be worn under most shades of white. I could not live or do my job without them.” — Christina Pacelli
“Nipple covers by Nippies is my favorite nipple-cover brand. They come in different skin tones, and the opaque shade obscures the nipple color and outline. These are indispensable in my kit for when my client goes sans bra and there is sheerness.” — Christina Pacelli
+ Plaid Mini Skirt with Zippers ($19)
“You basically just need this cute set, and I can vouch, as I already own it. All I can say is ‘Way harsh, Tai.’ And at a $50 price tag for the set, I can do Tai-from-Clueless cosplay all season long.” — Emily Sanchez
