If you’re familiar with Khaite, there’s a good chance you’re not even reading this right now, as you likely dashed straight to the shopping section. For those who stuck around, let’s get into it. Despite being relatively “new” (fun fact: I attended the first-ever Khaite runway show in February of 2019), the brand is an overwhelming favorite among fashion insiders and has solidified a place alongside the top-tier brands on all major sites and stores, from Net-a-Porter to Bergdorf Goodman. It was once predominately known for jeans and basics, but you can now turn to Khaite for everything from heels and boots to eveningwear and It bags. If you do, you’ll always be the best-dressed person in the room.
Now, let’s dive into why we’re here. While Khaite’s quality and “It” factor are reflected in its pricing, those on a stricter budget can still emulate the brand’s vibe. A few distinct characteristics can be found in all its designs, and if you do a bit of searching (or let me do it for you), it’s possible to get the luxe look without the corresponding price tag. Below, you’ll see 40 Nordstrom finds under $100 that accomplish just that. Keep scrolling to get started.
