Since the rise of cheap designer collections and the plummet of the economy, savvy stylists and fashion editors alike have had a wardrobe mantra: mix high and low.

One of the easiest shopping destinations for doing just that is the online home of Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Piperlime -- their sites are combined and, more importantly, so is the shipping.

All of the brands have rolled out their warm-weather shoes, and many are marked down in an effort to give early bird shoppers an extra push. For less than $100, you can pull items from the cheap-chic Old Navy and the well-edited, higher-end Piperlime -- and enjoy perfect shoe updates for when the sun finally comes out.
