If you’re looking for a way to look—excuse my French—”bougie on a budget,” then you’ve come to the right place. Who What Wear was a trailblazer in that category way before it was cool to admit that you got it from Zara. There will be no label shaming here because we’re here to make fashion accessible to all, no matter what your budget is.
One of the best ways to take an affordable outfit to the next level is through accessories. Fun fact: No matter what many of the designer labels might tell you, they don’t need to break the bank. You have no idea how much fun I have sourcing vintage designer finds and buying into that It item, but to be a fashion person, the splurge is not a requirement.
Most people don’t know this, but it actually really matters what kind of accessory you buy on a budget. When you choose the right item, you’re guaranteed to be successful. The below accessories are approved by, well, me, but I know what I’m doing here, so you’re in good hands. Just adding one of the below items to your wardrobe will make all the difference, so let’s see what you find.
