35 Fall Finds Your Fiscally Smart, Always Stylish Fashion Friend Swears By



We all have that impeccably stylish friend who somehow can always afford a new outfit. Whether you're actually that friend or you're just an admirer, the allure of a stylish, cool bestie doesn't just come by chance. More than likely, they're constantly on the hunt for the most luxe-looking clothing that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Given that the anti-trend, quiet-luxury movement still remains strong, it feels like looking rich these days without actually being rich is a party trick. Now that some of my favorite retailers like H&M, Zara, and Nordstrom have expanded their subdued stealth wealth-esque styles that come in well under $200, everyone can get the look for a whole lot cheaper. 

Now that fall is here and the season to spend money is coming to a close (no more Hot Girl Summer!), adopt the cool-girl mentality by shopping these 35 finds that look expensive without the hefty price tag.

A timeless staple you can always rely on.

Paint the town red in this cozy pullover.

These look suspiciously like the luxury pair on my wish list for just a fraction of the price.

There's something about beige-and-black stripes that always feels elevated to me.

Your friend is probably shopping these tried-and-true under-$100 jeans all fashion people swear by.

These are my go-to sunnies, regardless of the time of year.

I just ordered these, and yep, you should get your hands on them before they sell out.

This would look so chic with a pair of dark-wash jeans and a charcoal wool coat.

Stylish with simple cardigans and button-down shirts alike.

You can never go wrong with a collared pullover.

I'm already envisioning the ways the stylish Parisians will style this miniskirt in the coming weeks.

This cult-loved handbag brand is now on Nordstrom, and one of its elevated styles rings in well under $75.

After seeing our editor Yusra wear this shirt, I've got to say I've never been more convinced to buy something in my life.

The perfect throw-and-go shirt with a pair of puddle jeans or baggy slacks.

These have to be my favorite tailored pants of all time, hands down.

Journee Collection's new nude pumps are such an incredible investment if you're looking for everyday neutral shoes to match your skin tone (and outfit!).

I have a love affair with slouchy trench coats.

The perfect top to layer with.

Throw on over a tank top or across your shoulders for a cool-girl look.

Your fashionable friend definitely buys footwear in the correct size—these wide-calf boots are extra comfortable if a standard-sized fit feels too tight.

I can't even begin to count how many white button-down shirts I own.

If you're looking to invest in a warm, chic coat this fall, look no further than this impeccable option from H&M. Plus, it's under $100.

Everyone needs a pair of well-constructed, long-lasting leather booties.

I could picture you wearing this under one of the distressed leather jackets all of the fashion editors I'm following keep on wearing.
