Hi/Lo: Metallic Oxfords, Loafers & Brogues

Sensible shoes don’t have to be boring! The latest menswear-inspired oxfords, loafers and brogues walked the high fashion runways in an array of gleaming metallics, but as much as I love a pair of gold or silver shoes, I don’t want them to cost me my weight in gold and silver either. Luckily, the metallic trend has trickled down — here are affordable alternatives to five pairs of high-shine designer kicks.

Hi/Lo: Flat Sandals For Summer

I’m sad. After years of depending on J. Crew’s Capri flip-flop as my go-to summer sandal, the company went and broke what was already perfect by pushing out a new version with slightly thicker straps and this weird supportive thingy on the heel. The difference between the old and new versions is marginal but noticeable and just decidedly not the same. As a creature of habit, this is upsetting. Don’t fuck with my summer shoe game, J. Crew! I guess this means I’m in the market for a new summer sandal, but where to start? I know! With absurdly expensive designer pairs and their affordable alternatives!

This Alexander Wang eyelet suit costs hundreds more than my wedding dress! White eyelet never goes out of style, but there is no way in hell I would spend $1,000+ on a white suit. I’d have to wear a plastic poncho to protect the damn outfit from THE WORLD! I saw “Can’t Buy Me Love”! (Okay, so that was white leather, but still.) I’m getting anxiety just thinking about it. This eyelet tank and pencil skirt from Ann Taylor is 75 percent cheaper, making it a safer (on your wallet) bet for your summer functions.

Hi/Lo: Vintage-Inspired Totes For Spring

Cute and feminine with a vintage feel? I’m in. Kate Spade’s Vita Riva Francis bag is super cute but a little out of my price range. I’m not gonna spend $398 on a bag to carry sunblock, beach towels, and beers! Mod Cloth’s When In Venice Beach Bag provides the same feel for a fourth of the cost.

Is it summer yet? I’m dreaming of sand, sun, and saltwater. When I saw this Cynthia Vincent clutch, my heart screamed “need!” but my brain said “no way!” I have never purchased a clutch for $295 and have no intention of starting now. If you can’t wait to go to the beach, or wear the beach under your arm, try Island Betty Hawaii’s version available on Etsy!

Hi/Lo: Varsity Sweater

Hi/Lo: Varsity Sweater

See that varsity tennis sweater on the left? It’s by Rag & Bone (or is it “rag & bone”? I dunno) and it is THE IT SWEATER of the season. Various fashion magazines told me so and then I’ve seen it on at least five celebrities in the last few weeks. But it is so expensive. Stupidly expensive really, which is why it’s great that those clever folks at Nasty Gal made a straight up rip-off for 85 percent less. Love? LOVE. (Plus, check out more varsity fashion below!)
