Silicon Valley executives may not be known for their fashion sense, but many of them have a high-end taste.

Mark Zuckerberg gets his signature gray T-shirts custom-made by an Italian designer; Evan Spiegel prefers $450 sneakers; everyone from Satya Nadella to Sundar Pichai to Kevin Systrom has been spotted in shoes from French fashion house Lanvin.

But these execs make millions of dollars a year, and many of them have a net worth that surpasses $1 billion. They’re not exactly shopping on the sale rack, and their fashion choices aren’t exactly accessible to the masses.

So, if you’re attempting to replicate the personal style of your favorite tech exec, how can you pull it off? We searched the internet high and low to find affordable versions of what CEOs like Tim Cook and Susan Wojcicki have worn on-stage or at public events.

Here’s how you can dress like your favorite tech executive for $200 or less. For $200 Or Less Dress Like A Tech Billionaire
