These 20 Basics and On-Trend Pieces Look Luxurious, But Surprise! They're Not

There’s nothing I love more than finding pieces that look like they cost a fortune but are secretly super affordable. And that’s one of the best things about my newfound love for shopping for clothes and accessories on Amazon; I can find really high-quality pieces at surprisingly affordable prices. The best part is no one knows how much I saved—that is until they compliment me and I immediately spill that I bought it on Amazon. (That’s what friends are for, right?) 

If you too want to have a champagne wardrobe on a beer budget, you’ve come to the right place. I spent way too much time scouring Amazon to find 20 of the absolute best affordable pieces worth buying right now, from timeless styles you’ll have forever to all the of-the-moment styles you’ve been eyeing. Scroll on, and remember—they only look expensive, so add to your cart with no regrets.

However, she does still have her taste for carbohydrates, love of losing sports teams, and fear of driving during rush hour. She's been in editorial for over eight years as a social media manager and writer covering beauty, fashion, and lifestyle at Glamour and People. Most recently, she was the women's editor at Express. These days, in addition to Who What Wear, you can see her byline at places like Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Ipsy, and WeWork. Both a skincare obsessive and a minimalist, she keeps her routine short, sweet, and effective—and she doesn't go a day without sunscreen. She's also deeply passionate about sustainability, and she strives to recommend products she truly believes are worth the investment. When she's not writing about the best and brightest beauty finds, she can usually be found hunting for vintage and secondhand treasures, attempting to find zen at a yoga class, bingeing Bon Appétit YouTube videos, or napping under her weighted blanket.
