If you're familiar with Khaite, there's a good chance you're not even reading this right now, as you likely dashed straight to the shopping section. For those who stuck around, let's get into it. Despite being relatively "new" (fun fact: I attended the first-ever Khaite runway show in February of 2019), the brand is an overwhelming favorite among fashion insiders and has solidified a place alongside the top-tier brands on all major sites and stores, from Net-a-Porter to Bergdorf Goodman. It was once predominately known for jeans and basics, but you can now turn to Khaite for everything from heels and boots to eveningwear and It bags. If you do, you'll always be the best dressed person in the room.

Now, let's dive into why we're here. While Khaite's quality and It factor are reflected in its pricing, those on a stricter budget can still emulate the brand's vibe. A few distinct characteristics can be found in all its designs, and if you do a bit of searching (or let me do it for you), it's possible to get the luxe look without the corresponding price tag. Below, you'll see 39 Nordstrom finds that are mostly under $100 that accomplish just that. Keep scrolling to get started.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
