In no way does an outfit have to be expensive to look expensive. While I’ve highlighted tricks for creating high-end looks in the past, it really just boils down to ensuring your ensembles are comprised of fashion-forward pieces that may look like they cost hundreds of dollars, but actually ring in for way less. And to help you navigate the millions of products out there to uncover those affordable gems, I spent an afternoon scouring all of our favorite stores—from Nordstrom to H&M—to find the chicest under-$75 items that will seriously elevate your winter wardrobe.
So without further ado, keep scrolling to shop 46 cheap winter staples, all broken down by category (from coats to sweaters to boots). Go on and take your "expensive" cold-weather offering to the next level.
