The key to a consistently fashionable outfit is mixing higher-priced items with wallet-friendly finds. Your closet should be chock-full of trendy styles that spark joy, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they need to come with a hefty price tag. After years spent combing through endless fads as a profession, I can confidently decipher the must-haves from the absolutely-nots.

I’m basically a self-proclaimed shopaholic, and who better to trust with your future wardrobe than fellow self-proclaimed shopaholics? All of the products below were sourced by Bustle fashion editors — aka, you’re in good hands. From Steven Madden sandals that look designer to twirl-worthy skirts, keep reading for a list of editor-approved styles you can mix, match... And mix again.
