How to Shop Fashion Trends on Any Budget

There are three things I am truly gifted at doing on any budget: planning very fun vacations (remember vacations?), ordering extremely drinkable bottles of red wine, and finding very, very good things to wear. So, in the spirit of a holiday season sans travel or dining out, my gift to you is all I have left: This hefty curation of my current favorite fashion, as seen on some particularly stylish people.

I had a lovely time searching high and low (pun alert) for both a designer and a more affordable take on each of these, everywhere from Amazon and Zara to Net-a-Porter and Acne. We’re talking trend pieces that don’t feel too “trendy,” some modern basics that are just kind of cool without really trying, and maybe even a few things that would make good gifts? LMK.
