Glamour Is For Everyone

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 QVCtonight 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.

I kinda hate when they say you should mix affordable pieces with designers. My entire wardrobe is affordable pieces. It's easy to buy cheap clothes without looking cheap, and you don't need to pair them with expensive things to do so.

200$ is still not affordable for most. lol. and i have a strong feeling the retail market is about to start taking a huge hit. people dont have the money to spend 70 bucks for tees and 158 and up for jeans. 150 for shoes, while Rachel may find that affordable, what retailers and rich people who want to sell to the public need to realize is, while under 200$ might not see like alot to them, it adds up! $200 for one item is too much. i know that i wont be buying anymore clothes now unless it is EXACTLY something i've been looking for, not like anything i already own, and something i will actually wear in evryday life. i have bought into this whole looking fashinable scam and have things that are fashionable but you know what? they sit! why? because i am uncomfortable in heels, people stare, no one in reality really dresses up, nor do they even care. get real! when jobs are cut, luxuries like expensive clothes are the first to go. and i am saying this as someone who follows fashion religiously for probably? since i was 13 in the 80s.

I missed the QVC appearance since it is now 8:30 here in CT. Would love to check it out but somehow have a feeling the items are still going to be too expensive for me personally ( I am picturing the items being around $150 & so on...just below $200) - sneaky Zoe
