Wardrobe Favorites Under $200

While I am certainly one to mix high and low pieces often, much of my wardrobe favorites is made up of under $200 staples that work hard for me every week. They are versatile and reliable and pieces that I always feel good when I put them on. I really truly believe your closet should be full of pieces that make you get excited to dress up. And while I love investment pieces, I also understand everyone’s budget is different.

Wardrobe Favorites Under $200

Today I’ve rounded them all up in one place and it is freshly updated with newer purchases!

    You are my favorite blogger for practical pieces. I just love the sezane sweater. How is the sizing? Have you seen the other colors in person? They look beautiful!

  3. Sarah M. says:

    I recently discovered your blog and LOVE IT SO MUCH!! The best find of this year 🙂 I’ve been looking at all your jeans reviews and I’m curious: if you could only get ONE jean from Agolde, would you recommend the Toni or the Nico? I know you love both, but I wanted to start with the one that you think is the most loved/versatile in your closet. I read the descriptions and reviews for both, and am so torn. Thank you in advance!!

    • Meghan says:

      Yay – welcome, Sarah and thank you for the kind words! I’d say the Toni over the Nico just because the Toni are a bit more comfy and great for everyday wear given the ankle crop means they can go with SO many types of shoes! Let me know if you end up getting them!

  4. Judy Holmes says:

    Thanks – a great round-up of basics that look more expensive than their price tags! It pays to develop a good eye for style!

  5. Prithvi says:

  6. L says:

    Love this round up and your stuff all around! I appreciate that you put this list together and it’s not fast fashion! Between the Sezan striped top and the ayr, if you only had to pick one, which would you start with?
