It's 2020, which means that spending a lot of money on impractical clothes you're not going to wear is the opposite of what most of us are doing, us editors included. While we are buying some new pieces for fall, it's safe to say that it's not at the level that we shop most years. And given the current circumstances, we're well aware that you too may be buying less and spending less. So let's talk about affordable pieces that are also trendy (we are fashion editors, after all).
If you're a regular Who What Wear reader, you're probably aware that we pretty much shop all day for a living, and we come across tons of under-$100 fashion items on a daily basis. But as far as shoppers go, we're as discerning as they come. So in case you just want to know what the very best affordable items to buy right now are in a clear and concise fashion, we compiled them for you.

"A statement necklace that can go with everything is my workday MVP. If I'm wearing a plain top or little makeup, it makes it look like I took at least 50% more time with my appearance. This one is completely on-trend and at a price point that fits with my budget."
"I just bought the Instagram-popular knit crop top from Simonett, and honestly it probably the piece I'm most excited about wearing this fall. As I'm a huge fan of unique knitted pieces, this is something that I know I'll be getting full use out of."
"I'm always a sucker for a bag—especially when it incorporates two of the fall's biggest trends. As chain details and more polished shapes begin to rise in popularity, I'm betting we will see cute bags like this affordable Charles & Keith all over. "
"Even though I already have a plaid blazer, I think this one is different enough because of the beautiful long-line silhouette. It's so classic and at a very reasonable price point—what's not to love? I'll be wearing it with jeans and lace-up boots whenever L.A. decides to cool down."
"By far, the prettiest piece I'll buy this fall is a vintage-inspired collar blouse. Spotted all over Instagram, the large statement collar is perfect to pair with jeans and under sweaters when the temps start to cool."
