Devon Lee Carlson can do it all, not just stylistically speaking: By the time she was 17, she turned her love of vlogging into a business. Now 26, Carlson runs her own phone case brand, collaborates with luxury brands like Marc Jacobs, and works as a stylist to friends like Emma Chamberlain and Olivia Rodrigo.

Looking at Devon’s Instagram — which boasts over a million followers — it’s not hard to see why so many want her to style them. The YouTuber-turned-influencer often mixes luxury pieces with her huge collection of vintage goods, making for fun, original outfits. Such jawns can be hard to find, or too pricey to indulge in — so we’ve found eight pieces under $100 we think channel Devon’s eccentric style.

Audrey Slip Dress, $68

One style Carlson can’t get enough of is the slip dress. Hers are usually vintage, but you can achieve a similar look with this shimmery iteration, which comes in a bunch of colors.
