Budget-Friendly Celebrity Style Closet Staples

I have a few go-to stores I hit up for specific items that I know just work for me after style trial and error over the years. And given that my wardrobe mainly comprises basics, I have my favorite staple shops I turn to on the regular for those simple, elevated items. Yep, three at the top of the list just so happen to be JCrew, Nordstrom, and Net-a-porter.

Sure, treating yourself to something luxurious is nice, but nothing beats the thrill of a high-quality affordable find. The backbone of a ‘celebrity style’ closet are those such essentials, and there are a few that celebrities and fashionistas swear by, like Jcrew and Madewell’s cozy sweaters, and Dr. Martens’s and Converse’s comfy shoes. And while I’d hate for them to sell out, I’ve decided to share the details on some of my favorite wardrobe steals here. Some are from classic brands that have withstood the test of time, while others are from up-and-coming brands that need to be on your radar.

Whether you are keeping things polished and professional for important Zoom meetings, staying cute while walking the dog, or stepping out for a socially distanced lunch, these are the affordable workhorses in my closets—and almost everything is under $200.
