Editors' Under-$100 Fashion Picks: December
Faux Fur Jacket
"I'm petite, so a warm cropped jacket in winter white is high on my list to team with high-waisted silhouettes and dresses."
—Stephanie Montes, Beauty Director
"I'm finally joining the gold hoop club. Since I typically wear my hair back, this chunky pair will be perfectly spotlighted."
—Aidan Macaluso, Associate Manager, Social Media
Faith Velvet Granny Heeled Bootie Pumps
A New Day
"The fact that these are referred to as granny-heeled booties blows my mind—they're the chicest lace-up boot I've seen under $40, from one of Target's new lines. Definitely wearing these on repeat this winter."
—Laura Lajiness, Senior Fashion Editor
Satin Kimono Pouch
"I'm obsessed with pouch bags right now and I've seen many overpriced renditions. This one is a steal! I can't wait to get my hands on it and wear it with everything from denim for day to dresses for holiday parties."
—Amy Lee, Fashion Editor
"I'm not one to wear much color, but for some reason I want the brightest sweaters I can find this season. I'm going for basically every Crayola shade in existence."
—Alyson Fishbein, Senior Manager, Social Media
Standards Velvet Pants
"I absolutely fell in love with this rich color of velvet, and a fancy yet comfy pair of pants is the perfect piece to add to my wardrobe amid the holiday season."
—Lauren Black, Content Analyst
Velvet Chiquita Scrunchie
"I am 100% here for the return of the scrunchie, and this emerald-navy velvet iteration (with a bow!) is too perfect to pass up."
—Allie Flinn, Associate Lifestyle Editor
"Not sure if I can attribute this to my claustrophobia, but I feel uncomfortable in most scarves and collared shirts, let alone turtlenecks. However, this piece is super lightweight and surprisingly cozy, making it perfect for layering without looking (or feeling) like the Michelin Man."
—Samantha McDonald, News Editor
Checked High Waist Leggings
"I'm a big fan of going full-on business chic at work (even if the dress code is casual). These trousers give that effect but are also super comfortable and stretchy."
—Rebecca Iloulian, Marketing Manager
Which We Want
"If ever I were bold enough to wear a cold-shoulder top, you can bet your bottom dollar this would be the one!”
—Kristen Mahler, Graphic Designer
Bling Beanie Hat
"I'm very into beanies, and this blinged-out pick is right up my rhinestoned alley."
—Angela Melero, Managing Editor
Metallic Puffer Jacket
"I've always wanted a metallic puffer but have never had the courage to buy one. This year I'm totally going for it, and wrapping up 2017 with gold. It's loud and obnoxious, but I absolutely love it.”
—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor
Wintour de France Tee
"I'm obsessed with Unfortunate Portrait tees because the doodles are always in really pretty colors. They're a great alternative to a vintage band tee and they make me giggle."
—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
