When you’re trying to find clothing that’s made in the USA, it’s fairly easy to track down funky, one-of-a-kind items from indie designers and well-made investment (read: expensive) pieces from higher end labels. But what about the basics, the stuff you wear every single day — jeans, hoodies, t-shirts, tights, sneakers, pencil skirts, etc? Luckily for us, there are still some awesome companies producing these must-have clothing items right here in America. They can be a little tough to find, but that’s why I did the work for you! Click through to check out 10 everyday basics, all American-made, all great quality, all $100 or less…

Who said wearing your wedding dress had to be a one-off deal? Not Keira Knightley, that’s for sure. The actress, who wed musician James Righton this past May (center), rocked her repurposed wedding dress at an event in London last night (left). Worn over some sort of long-sleeved mesh garment, the Chanel frock looked pretty perfect on the blue carpet, but this isn’t the first time Knightley has sported the look off the altar — she actually first inaugurated the tulle number back in 2008, when she wore it with black tights to a BAFTA awards dinner (right). Five years ago, her wedding, and today … it’s safe to say Keira really, really loves this dress. [Photo Credit: WENN]
Get it? Because Jamie Chung used to be on “The Real World”! What? You didn’t know that? You mean I am the only person on Earth whose brain is essentially an Encyclopedia of Bunim-Murray Productions? Yes, Jamie Chung was one of seven strangers picked to live in a house on “The Real World: San Diego” back in 2004. She was normal and quiet and didn’t get into any trouble which is A) probably why you don’t remember her and B) why she’s actually a successful actress now (“The Hangover” series, “Once Upon A Time”) instead of appearing on her 10th season of “The Challenge.” AND she can afford to dress like a star now too. That bright blue leather jacket is nearly $600, while her purse is nearly $400. Too rich for my real world butt. But I found a bunch of similar and much more affordable items so that we can all dress like an ex-reality show star who’s gone on to bigger and better things. Keep reading »
This always happens. Just a few months after I do a major closet clean, in which I donate/sell things I don’t wear anymore, I wake up with the realization that I should have kept my [INSERT ITEM I DIDN'T CARE ABOUT TWO MONTHS AGO BUT WANT NOW]. Such is the case with the full midi skirt I gave away three months ago that I am dying to wear now that full skirts are being spotted everywhere including the street style photos that have been the source of much of my outfit inspirations recently. I love, love, love this trend because I think it works on ALL body types. A full skirt gives everyone a tiny waist, hourglass shape and a feminine vibe that can be styled in an endless variety of ways and can work for all seasons (just add tights!). Here are five street style-inspired ways to rock the full skirt! I guess I’ll be buying another one — and this time I’m holding onto it for dear life.
I know what you’re going to say. “Amelia! It’s winter! Shouldn’t the mini skirts be stocked away for next summer?” That, my dears, is a fallacy. Winter is the perfect time to rock a short, flouncy skirt — you just need to add cold-weather layers, like sweaters, tights and boots, to make them seasonally appropriate. Here, I’ll put my hand on Grace Coddington’s memoir, Grace, and swear that I am not trying to give you frostbitten legs. Now do you believe me? Good! Click on for my picks!
I was actually scrolling through the photos from the GQ Men Of The Year Awards red carpet looking for a different picture, but when I saw Retta looking so gorgeous and sassy in this stunning red dress, I decided to change course. I mean, check out those tough boots and that fierce leopard necklace. This look is so perfect for all the holiday parties on the horizon, it needed to be Style Stealer-ed ASAP. Read on for shopping details, including an exact replica of that leopard necklace for a mere 15 bucks… Keep reading »
Fall trends are so great because they’re usually stylish and comfortable. Cozy mixed knit sweaters. Warm cape coats. And my personal favorite: the slightly oversized blazer. Whether you choose a super slouchy style or opt for a tailored blazer with just a bit of extra room, you’re going to look simultaneously pulled together and edgy, which is quite an amazing fashion feat. Throw one of these bad boys on over a dress and sweater tights, jeans and a T-shirt, or sexy leather pants and a tight tanktop. Click through for 10 of my favorite slouchy blazers of the season, many of which ring up at less than 100 bucks!

I figured out! I know what’s missing from my life! I understand the reason for the dull ache in my chest! It’s because I don’t have a pair of flat lace-up booties in my closet. Yes, yes, that is it. I am seeking to remedy this situation promptly, after coming across these amazingly cool lace-up booties from American Eagle Outfitters. (Similar styles are everywhere too.) And I already have some outfit ideas in mind. Here are three ways I’d wear these babies… Keep reading »
A puffy down vest is a wardrobe must for anyone who lives in a cold climate, as they provide loads of heat without adding tons of bulk to your outfit. Plus, they have a whole sporty, utilitarian vibe to them that’s actually quite chic, if styled properly. Here’s how I’d wear it depending on the weather forecast…
