I Dressed in Entirely Under-$100 Pieces for 11 Days Straight

We all love an under-$100 thrill, and if your whole outfit is made up of them, even better, right? That was the mindset I had when I decided to wear the best clothing under $100 to the office for over two weeks straight. The result? A true test to find the most stylish, expensive-looking pieces on the market. I hit up my under-$100 go-tos, including H&M, Zara, Topshop, & Other Stories, Mango, Reformation, Urban Outfitters, Storets, and, of course, our Who What Wear collection. While there was some trial and error (yes, some outfits did not make the cut; DM me for a laugh), overall, I ended up with way too many pieces I wanted to keep. Scroll down to read my honest thoughts on the outfits and grab a few affordable pieces to inject some newness into your wardrobe.

May I interest you in a shot of chartreuse? This cardigan is so soft—like, curiously soft. I also enjoy the button story going on here from the cardigan to the cords.
This bodysuit is special. Upon wearing it, one Who What Wear editor bought it on the spot. The only thing I would change is that the wire doesn’t lay quite flat on my chest. It’s not super noticeable though. The white jeans with contrast stitching were another highlight from this experiment. Word to the wise: I’m 5’4” and have to wear them with super-tall heels so they don’t drag.
The schoolteacher is back and ready for more. This time, she has graduated (sorry) to full-on neon green in the turtleneck department. Seriously, though, dressing in one color is the easiest way to look like you know what you’re doing. And white shoes usually help (and look more forward than black).
I found this duster coat at the Bearded Beagle on a vintage shoot and couldn’t wait to wear it. At $48, it was a no-brainer for this under-$100 challenge. Pictured: vintage blazer coat and choker;
