1. Classic Maxi Dress
The black, sleek, maxi dress is an elegant look that many designers include a variation of in their collections -- take this MIU MIU Silk Dress for example. But instead of spending over $1,000 on a dress, I'm sharing with you guys this Front Slit Maxi Dress which is only $34 (with code DA50) from Tobi, an affordable online shop that always has the latest fashion trends!
2. Long-sleeve Ribbed Turtleneck
Ribbed turtlenecks continue to be a popular fall item. With long sleeves and a slim fit design, the turtleneck can be both flattering and on trend. This Vince Long-Sleeve Turtleneck Sweater is everything we could ever want in a turtleneck, except that it's over $100. If you're trying to not break the bank with this purchase I highly suggest this H&M look-alike, which is only $9.99.
3. Faux Leather Metal Ring Bag
Handbags with metal ring detailing have taken the fashion industry by storm, with Chloé being one of the largest contributors to this trend. While some of these designer handbags can cost thousands of dollars, I found this incredibly stylish Faux Leather Metal Ring Crossbody, at Zaful, for only $20.99, a fraction of the cost! That being said, this purse is not made with real leather or to the same standards that a designer handbag would be made. But for the price, this handbag is more than worth it, I can assure you!
4. White Tennis Sneaker
Every fashionista has a white tennis shoe nowadays, and with good reason. They are trendy, comfortable, and go with just about everything. While I would love a pair of $600 Gucci kicks, the Adidas Stan Smith is a much more affordable option. What's more is that instead of purchasing a 7.5 women's shoe, I went with the identical "big kids" shoe in a size 5.5 instead, bringing the price down about $20!
And there you have it, 4 trendy products for under $40, because you doesn't love a good buy right?! More designer-dupes to come on BTFL, so stay tuned!
