wardrobe updates for under $20

It's no secret that I prefer vintage and pre-owned shopping to the traditional mall, but I find that I can often experience the thrill of the thrifty hunt without spending three hours at my local Goodwill. There are plenty of incredible shopping steals and budget-friendly deals available online, and with a sharp eye and keen sense of search, you can find chic clothing and accessories for under $20 -- without ever leaving your laptop.

how to wear a midi skirt

When it comes to mastering the midi skirt, there's one woman who has her styling game completely nailed down. Kate Foley, creative consultant and former buyer for Opening Ceremony, has managed to take this tricky piece and turn it into something that I absolutely have to have in multiple iterations. From making it a summer staple with a crop top to pairing it with a turtleneck, she manages to make any outfit with a midi skirt look as easy as tossing on a t-shirt and jeans.

The best part? She unabashedly remixes the same skirts, shoes, tops and accessories over and over again, making her a true inspiration for any modern woman's wardrobe.

Which Kate Foley ensemble is YOUR favorite?
