If you don’t own a white collared shirt, you can find the classic oxford at Old Navy for $20. This piece should be a staple in almost every girl’s closet. It can double as professional wear. Unless you’re finding this top on a clearance rack somewhere, 20 bucks is probably your best bet.

You might not get too much wear out of sandals because it’s October and sandal season is, unfortunately, coming to a close. However, if you DO want to wear sandals with this outfit totally go for it. You can find them at target for about $40. A good alternative to sandals is the ever-prominent bootie. You can find some black booties at H&M online for only $24.99.

Capes aren’t just for Halloween anymore. That’s right, they’re in now! Obviously the Dracula cape isn’t (unless you’re into that, then go for it), but patchwork and plaid totally are. Who wouldn’t want one? It’s basically like wearing a blanket out in public and it’s completely acceptable. If you’re in need of a cape for the chilly months, don’t spend $200 dollars on one, head on over to your first stop to getting this look which is the H&M website.

Distressed jeans have been in for a while, but lately this season I have being seeing a lot of light wash, distressed boyfriend jeans. Your first choice might be American Eagle, but if you’re on a budget, look no further than Forever 21. They have them for only $29.90!

Congrats! You now have a fabulous outfit for substantially less than you would have paid buying designer brands. Plus, all of these pieces are versatile enough to be worn over and over again.
