The September issues are on the newsstands — glossy, colorful, and weighty enough to rival your old college textbooks. In a perfect world, you'd pore over each one, circling the trends you'd like to take for a spin, and the pieces you might pull the trigger on.

The only solution? Delegate. HuffPost Style has come to the rescue. (Because, we need to be saved from a life without shiny loafers — the horror!) It combed through your favorite periodicals to find the 30 best buys under $500, including bags, shoes, and even pajamas. So, you can get back to scouring the web for dried blue corn recipes.
