Sorry, but not all clothing basics are made equal. Some are cheap and look cheap (here's your guide to what makes jewelry look cheap), some are expensive and look it, and even fewer fall into the elusive category of being cheap and looking expensive. These are the tanks, skirts, boots, and other wardrobe staples that look undeniably luxe no matter what their price tags say. I'm not sure about you, but I'll always choose the expensive-looking version over the others any day.
So instead of leaving all the guessing up to you, I went ahead and sourced all the best cheap clothing basics on everyone's favorite affordable sites Urban Outfitters, Mango, Reformation, and ASOS that look twice their price tags. From the chain-link necklace that looks so luxe to the skinny jeans that will rake in the compliments, look no further for the best under-$150 items to buy right now. Don't tell the people at these retailers, but I'd shell out way more for these items than what each is currently listed for.
