January Jones' High-Waist Jeans and White Boots + Chloe 'Pixie' Dupe

January Jones style featuring white tee, high waist button-fly jeans and white boots with Chloe bag
Even at the airport, January Jones exudes chic simplicity in her white tee and high-waist flare leg jeans. I love how the white pointy-toe boots and cateye sunglasses give this look a retro mod vibe. And her Chloe bag, albeit timeless, is over $1,000! Steal that style with a dupe under $100 that gets great reviews from Amazon shoppers.

Look for Less: Levi's Ripped High Waist Skinny Jeans

Levi's jeans look for less
You've probably seen these on all the fashion bloggers - the popular Levi's 721 Ripped High Waist Skinny Jeans. These feature two large rips on the knees and that's it. I love the look and I love Levi's but one thing I've learned is that jeans with prominent rips and distressing tend not to wash and wear all that well, which is why I'm eying this look for less at American Eagle. They're currently buy one, get one half off, too, which brings the price down further. And they come in short, regular and long lengths!

Look for Less: Splendid Ruffle Sleeve Tee

Splendid ruffle tee look for less
Ruffle sleeves give an edgy camo tee a feminine feel. I'm loving Splendid's take on this trend but found a look for less that's super cute and just $25! Comes in 6 colors in case camo isn't your thing (but how could it not be?!) and they're currently buy one, get one half-off.
