My Friend Wants to Elevate Her Style— I Told Her to Try These Under-$100 Items


@honeybelleworld; STYLING: H&M Chunky-Soled Boots ($60)

During one of my many recent phone calls with one of my best friends, the chat ended with a style conversation (as it often does). Essentially, my friend wanted some fresh advice on a few items she could add to her current offering that will elevate her day-to-day style. Given that she’s spending a lot of time at home, she wanted just a few comfortable-yet-chic pieces she could wear for various Zoom meetings, along with some sleek finds that would also work if she does happen to be out for errands and such (socially distanced and in a mask, of course). I actually had a range of items in the back of my mind to recommend based on what I’ve seen in the market while researching for various stories.

The pieces in question all feel incredibly modern but are versatile enough to mix into a wardrobe full of basics and other staples. Oh, and the items happen to be under $100. Intrigued also? Keep scrolling to first find the five pieces I told my friend to consider and a smattering of other treasures I think you could be interested in as well.

Wearing a sweater-vest on its own or as a layering piece will bring a directional element to any fall 'fit.

Ribbed flared pants are cozy yet incredibly sleek.

My friend is all about the cardigan and coordinating tank vibe.

Here is the matching tank for above.

Chunky flat boots are the way to go this season.

Can't go wrong with a shacket for fall.

There are so many things right about these pants—from the sweater material to the pretty hue.

A ribbed polo feels very modern right now.

A check blazer is ideal to look polished for those virtual meetings.

This wrap sweater is very sweet.

A very chic piece to amp up any look.

The puff-shoulder detail takes this denim jacket to the next level.

A sweat suit is a no-fail staple right now.

Love the idea of tucking this cardigan into jeans for a very-right-now vibe.

A statement zipped knit will pop on any Zoom call.

Another top-notch check blazer for you.
