Good-Value Alert: These Cheap, Expensive-Looking Pieces Will Get So Much Wear

Influencer Felicia Akerstrom



This is dedicated to all of you out there working to create a stylish wardrobe while on a budget (myself included). With the continual rising cost of living, I’ve found serious comfort in discovering fashionable yet affordable pieces. With fall under way and the winter months on the horizon, there’s no better time to revamp your closet with some cool options. Thankfully, I came across a selection of picks that are incredibly stylish without breaking the bank.

My goal with my latest sartorial pursuit was to find pieces that only look expensive. I set out to keep everything under $100, of which I was successful. My virtual cart is now overflowing with a great selection of coats and jackets (lots of shearling here), timeless sweaters, statement boots (the patent over-the-knee boots are insane), and much more. Ahead, shop 30 of my top affordable picks this season—your friends will never guess their true price tag.
