The days of layering on as many fashion items as you possibly can in the name of maximalism are officially over. Instead, I’ve been noticing a slow but significant shift toward a quieter, more luxurious method of dressing. Think soft, neutral-colored sweaters; exquisite tailoring; pretty, timeless dresses; and accessories you’ll own and cherish forever. The only downfall is that with simpler, higher-quality pieces, the prices also tend to rise.
That’s where I come in. Rather than diving head first into this inherently expensive trend without any sort of budget, I’m suggesting the 41 items from Zara, Nordstrom, and H&M that are listed out below. Not only are they all $150 or less, making them far easier to justify during the approaching tax season, but they also look shockingly pricey, easily giving you the quiet-luxury look without the strain on your wallet.
