How many times have you thought, If I just had $500 more dollars, I’d be the best-dressed person on the planet? Yeah, same. Until then, let’s be smart shoppers together, shall we? Consider this your go-to guide to navigating the fall shopping season without blowing your entire budget.
Be honest: You’ve been eyeing these for years. Which also means they’re still just as popular as they were all those years ago. It’s time to invest.
Stuart Weitzman ($798)
Slip-ons, on the other hand, might not last as long. Plus, the less you spend on each pair means the more you can experiment with different fabrics (mmm, velvet).
The luxe fabric never goes out of style.
Trends change faster than you can blink, so tighten up your budget on these numbers. They’ll carry you through one season and that’s probably it.
When you find the right pair of jeans, it’s life-changing. So it pays (literally) to get a great pair that fits like a glove.
7 For All Mankind ($189)
Instead of spending your Working Girl cash on a pair of windowpane trousers, go pillaging your mother’s closet—or pick up this affordable option.
Do the extra research. There’s a chance this baby could last you a decade.
Keep it under $200 for transitional pieces that may change each year (military, bombers, oversize denim, you know the drill).
Old Navy ($45)
The harsh truth: These are adorably fun but wildly impractical.
Nasty Gal ($98)
On the flip side, a classic bag that fits your whole life never goes out of style.
Mansur Gavriel ($585)
Ladies have been rocking the delicate gold chains for quite some time now. Besides, it’s hard to regret a purchase that you never, ever take off.
Kismet by Milka ($660)
Get a fun few pairs on the cheap since you’ll wear them a handful of times before we’re onto the next.
