Kelly’s Chic Under $100: NYFW Essentials.

the best fashion week style under $100 | the stripe

Well, we are gearing up for fashion week! It officially kicks off on Thursday, but in preparation the fashion community is digging through their closets, local stores, (and PR contacts) to make themselves look like a million bucks.

Just like in any other industry, not all of us who work in fashion are able to drop the big bucks on the newest hottest thing. Still, you really don’t have to spend a ton to be prepared. I like to remind myself of this Buzzfeed article from years ago, where a small sampling of attendees at NYFW were asked how much their outfits cost. Some of the best dressed people spent the least money, and some who spend thousands don’t look that much more together. It’s all about how you style it and how you feel wearing it.

I’ve rounded up tons of great finds to make you look and feel your best during this (very cold) NYFW. From warm coats and great over the knee boots (at a fraction of the price of the Stuart Weitzman Lowlands) to a delicious snack bar and a great facial cleanser after a long day in makeup, we’ve got you covered.

May the odds be ever in your favor!
