I Scoured Mango, Zara, and H&M—These Under-$70 Items Look Triple the Price



There's nothing like the thrill of finding a fashion item that looks really expensive but isn't. As a market editor, I spend a lot of time scouring a whole host of brands and retailers to find these sartorial gems and share them with you, our dear readers. (They're simply too good to keep to myself!)

If finding something chic without spending all of your money is your objective, then you probably already know that Zara, Mango, and H&M are really good options to start with. After tremendous scrolling of each of these sites this week, I want to share 37 affordable pieces that caught my eye that look expensive yet clock in at $70 or less. If you want to refresh your wardrobe with elevated basics, of-the-moment accessories, and items that are altogether on-trend for 2023, keep scrolling below for guilt-free options that look luxe but won't take a huge bite out of your paycheck.
