Heavy-hitting designers bring their fashion to the masses.



    5 Falltacular Ways to Connect With Your Family
    Simply Vera at Kohl's

    H&M: Earlier this year, H&M started featuring a pair of hot stilettos from Jimmy Choo, a brand with its own collection of footwear fetish-istas. Since then, more designs have slowly trickled out, and H&M has also featured limited edition fashions from designers like Stella McCartney and Karl Lagerfeld.

    KOHL'S: Known for her crisp interpretations of classic style, Vera Wang's Simply Vera collection offers tops, shoes, accessories and home furnishing that are as lovely as you would expect. In the junior's section you'll find the LC collection from television star Lauren Conrad, which is cute and comfortable in that So Cal sorta way.

    PAYLESS SHOES: Payless Shoe Source just started carrying name brands a few years ago, but now it boasts designer originals. You'll have a hard time saying no to funky booties and ankle-strap platforms from Christian Siriano and Alice + Olivia, especially when they're less than $50 a pair.

    TARGET: Part of Target's appeal is its low prices and surprisingly stylish stuff. Anna Sui and Liz Lange currently contribute unique fashions and maternity clothing for Target that look fresh and don't wear out the purse strings.

    WAL-MART:Norma Kamali's got her fresh Parisian style down pat, and she's recently teamed up with Wal-Mart to bring that style to the locals. While we're on the subject, it's worth mentioning that Max Azria lent his hand to the Miley Cyrus line of juniors clothing there, which feature some cute tees and trendy, cheap bottoms.

    JCPENNEY:Nicole Miller is know for her splashy color pallet, and she doesn't skimp on her Nicole line for JCPenney. From tops to dresses, the styles are functional, fun and incredibly affordable.

    ADIDAS: Sportswear isn't the first craving for most fashion-forward ladies, but the pieces in Stella McCartney's Adidas line are lovely regardless of when or how you choose to wear them.

    SHOPBOP: Few designers meld masculine, feminine and cute style influences quite like Marc Jacobs does. His Marc by Marc Jacobs line still puts some pressure on the budget, but the pieces are perfect for layering and far more affordable than his runway collections. On a similar note, Moschino's Cheap and Chic line hovers around the mid-high price point and is effortlessly lovely, if you don't count the minor wallet flexing.
