The Under-$50 Work Trend Every Fashion Editor Is Buying

We'll be the first to admit we've got expensive taste. But that doesn't mean a good, cheap thrill (especially one that looks much pricier than it is) can't give us the same kind of warm fuzzies. So each week, we're spotlighting the "no-brainer" buys that fill these cravings. Keep an eye on this space for stylish picks someone on the R29 fashion team has recently added to their cart — because sharing is caring, after all.
With every Fashion Month season comes a selection of goods we just can't wait to get our hands on. And we're not talking about clothes we see on the runway — we're talking about those highly photographed trends that take over street style slideshows and Instagram feeds. Last season, though, we saw a shift from the old days of outrageous peacocking to a more laid-back aesthetic. The editor-favorite pièce de résistance? Simple collared blouses that had a twist (sometimes, quite literally). Whether they featured extra-long sleeves or oversized, undone cuts, the not-so-basic button-up that were as easy to wear with designer accessories and creative layering tricks as it is with just a pair of jeans.

The good news is that we don't see this understated trend going anywhere anytime soon — and, it won't cost you a fortune to jump on board with it, either. A handful of affordable shopping destinations are selling their own versions, each ringing in at less than $50 — click through to start shopping.
