We’ve all been there, clicking the buy button with a reluctantly quivering finger while the price tag makes our eyes water. Sometimes the purchase pays off, and you get what you pay for in terms of quality, or maybe exclusivity. Other times, though, dropping that much money on an item can feel like a waste, and that hurts. That’s why it’s important to show yourself how much you can do on a budget, too. To prove that balling on a budget is not only possible but also fun and fairly simple, we took to Urban Outfitters with just $150 in our account.

When you limit yourself to $150, you challenge yourself to style things you might not normally go for, and your outfits often end up more interesting for it. If we could do it with just $100, then $150 should be no problem at all. Whether it’s a whole outfit, a powerful duo, or even one item that we’d drop the whole budget on, here’s proof that with less than $200 you can seriously spice up your wardrobe.
