Where a Celebrity Stylist Buys Under-$100 Trends

When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank or acting in her capacity as the official Armi Captain at the luxury rental and styling platform Armarium, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

Since I’ve already shared where I stocked up on the best wardrobe staples like this white tee and the skinny jeans I live in, today I’m slightly switching gears and highlighting where I find the best on-trend items under $100. When it comes to sprinkling in playful pieces like the season’s biggest animal prints and interesting, outfit-making accessories, I’m like the rest of you and look to fast-fashion brands like H&M, Zara, and ASOS. I always find quick buys that will instantly update my style, like a new pair of shoes or dress in an on-trend color, and the items are typically always under $100 (or less). In other words, I never feel too guilty after my mini shopping spree. Keep reading for the items I’m buying for under $100 from each store below.
