8 Under $20: Plaid

Most people think of plaid as just for prepsters, but it can actually be pretty fashionable! Paired with boots, chunky knits, or dark colors, it's perfect for the chillier months. But if you're unsure about adding plaid to your wardrobe, the great news is it's easy to incorporate it as little or as much as you'd like! Whether you opt for a plaid dress, coat or just accessories, there are lots of options out there that are also budget-friendly!

Budget Stylista: Seeing Spots

Lucky for people like myself with an eternal love for polka dots, designer heavy weights such as Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney had us seeing spots for their F/W 2011 collections. Yes ma'am, the polka dot is big (but not literally) this season.

Budget Stylista: Not Your High School Uniform Plaid

Plaid is one of thing that never goes out of style, but I'm sure many ladies who had to wear a plaid skirt pre-university gag at the thought of wearing plaid again. While it's true that it's pretty difficult to ditch the school girl appearance with a pleated plaid skirt, there are many other ways to wear plaid.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Jennifer Lopez Makes Plaid Glam

Jennifer Lopez has been one of my style icons for over a decade. As a supremely awkward adolescent girl, I used to watch her music videos and drool over her sexy, trendy, totally stunning outfits that she wore with the kind of confidence that I continue to marvel at to this day.

Fashion Porn: Winter Coats

Now is probably one of the best times of the year to think about buying a winter coat. It's before the first I'm-so-freaking-cold-why-haven't-I-bought-a-new-coat day, but after stores have brought out loads of coats - and even marked some down! If you're in need of a new coat this year (or just want something that doesn't say North Face on the shoulder), Thanksgiving is the perfect time to pick one up.

Fashion Porn: Doin’ it in Plaid

Plaid is one of the 10 Modern Pieces Every Girl Should Own and the plaid shirt has become a uniform for both male and female college students. It's easy to wear with jeans, super comfy, and looks good even when it's been balled up on your floor and you only have 10 minutes to make it to class.

8 Under $20: Leggings

I'll admit, a few years ago when leggings came back in style, I thought there was no way I'd wear them. In fact, I told everyone I knew that I'd rather "walk around pants-less than try and pass off some leggings as pants." Obviously, I've since eaten my words.

Fashion Porn: Cardigan Orgy

While the cardigan can be associated with our favorite childhood neighbour, Mr. Rogers, the cardigan is no longer just for old men. A cardigan is easily the most versatile piece of clothing you can own. Chicer than a hoody, the cardigan goes with everything, be it with jeans or over a dress.
