Editor's note: The following is a guest post written by Rachel Zoe, celebrity stylist and fashion designer. This week Rachel discusses how to include high and low end items into your wardrobe.
While I anxiously wait to show off my latest round of designs for QVC — tonight at 7 p.m. and tomorrow at 6 a.m., 12 p.m., 3 p.m. and 11 pm. ET! — I think it is the perfect time to touch on affordable fashion. Now more than ever, I am stumbling upon such incredible interpretations of runway looks at all price points, which means everyone has the opportunity to achieve some killer style.
This Spring, as you go to expand your wardrobe in a mula-conscious manner, I think the idea is just to make sure the quality is there and that the items you choose look expensive. Remember: whatever you buy doesn't have to be expensive to look expensive. The products I have done for QVC achieve luxury that looks really high-end, but everything is under $200; I wore my cape out the other night and someone thought it was Balenciaga!
Aside from my line, I also really like so many of the clothes and accessories from H&M, Topshop, and all of the Target collaborations. And shoes from Aldo or Vince Camuto! Just mix and match their pieces with designer and no one will be able to tell the difference. It really all comes down to how you wear something — you just have to own it! xoRZ
P.S. For more inspiration on this, become a subscriber of my free daily newsletter, The Zoe Report! For every high-end item featured, I show a Parallel Universe option, which is an inexpensive, top-quality version of the look.
