I'm Shook: These Outfit Combos Look Upscale But Actually Aren't Super Pricey

At Who What Wear, we consider putting together an outfit an art form. You have to balance shapes and proportions, pair colors, and let your creativity and personal style shine through. Having to do this every day of our lives can feel like a lot (some days are easier than others, right?), which is why we’re all about outfit formulas that pay off every time.

We write about perfect outfits a lot—whether it’s first-date outfits our single friends swear by or the spring tops that pair especially well with jeans. Today, we’re focusing our outfit attention on looks that feel especially upscale, but don’t hit your wallet like one. Who doesn’t want their outfit to punch above their budget? From a monochrome matching set moment to vegan leather that looks plain expensive, keep scrolling to check out our high-end outfit ideas and shop the "get the look" items. We swear you’ll look like you spent at least double what you paid.

Camel Loungewear + Timeless Coat

Camel and black is a color combination made in fancy heaven.

If you don't have a black coat like this yet in your wardrobe, consider this your sign.

Black Matching Set + Pumps to Match

Black Sweater and Sweatpants Who What Wear Collection



When you wear all black, even comfy loungewear can look super chic.

Shop the matching Grace Pull-On Pants ($155).

Honestly, we're very torn between the black and the camel.

Monochromatic Turtleneck + Vegan Leather Pants + Statement Accessories

Gather your best black items and then punch the look up a notch with exceptional accessories.

You can always count on H&M for solid basics.

These pants have a cult following among Who What Wear employees.

Vegan Leather Shirtdress + Turtleneck Layered Underneath + Tall Tonal Boots

This look screams powerful, and we're not mad at it. When temps rise, just ditch the layer and swap in slingback pumps for the boots.

If we're not buying our basics at H&M, it's Amazon for the win.

These are the perfect boots to transition to spring.

Classic Sweater With a Twist + Vintage Wash Jeans

Who What Wear Collection Jaree Gray Sweater

It's the raised double seam and rolled neck for us. This simple look is proof that sometimes less is more.

We're having a hard time picking between the gray and the forest green.

Something about a well-executed rip feels '90s in the best way.

Bustier-Inspired Tank + Vegan Leather Separates

If you can't tell by this point in the article, we love vegan leather. No material looks as luxe for the price!

Who What Wear Collection Matching Set Knit Kat Collings



Extra points for a statement accessory like a textured hat.

Shop the matching Mollie Knit Skirt ($135).

Very much into the nutmeg color of this set.

Alluring LBD + Cozy Matching Socks 

This outfit is a study in balancing vibes. A subtly sexy keyhole dress is beautifully tempered by matching knit socks.

We have it on good word that these socks are incredibly cozy.

We did a double-take when we saw the price of these shoes.

Shop Other Upscale Picks

Shop the matching Wendy Wavy Ribbed Skirt ($135).

This set is vaguely reminiscent of Gwyneth Paltrow's green look in Great Expectations.
