I'm an Observant Shopper—Here Are the Coolest Under-$200 Buys I Saw This Month


(Image credit: @scarletkent)

Most fashion editors know it's not unusual to keep a running tally of all the things you want to buy. And unfortunately for me (or my wallet), that list is never short of things. It also doesn't help when your feed is full of incredibly stylish people who make what they're wearing look like the next best thing. Call it being influenced.

Today, I'm here to share everything that's caught my eye recently but with a little caveat: very single piece included is $200 or less. From head-turning jewelry to winter statement pieces, all of these items are things I've very nearly bought, either plan to, or have discussed ad nauseam in my own group chat. Whether you're in the mood to fawn over pretty things or need some really great wardrobe heavy-hitters, keep scrolling below.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
