One of the reasons I’m most excited for the new season to start? An excuse to add some of the biggest summer trends into my shopping cart. From chic anti-loungewear linen pieces to colorful shoes to the coolest swimsuits of the moment, there are plenty of fresh finds I have my eye on at the moment—and you can tap into all of them, even on a budget.
To bring you some of the best affordable fashion items of the season, I scrolled through hundreds of products at my favorite retailers and curated an edit of the very best finds that are worthy of adding to your summer wardrobe. And here’s the best part: These all look much more expensive than their price tags thanks to elevated details like smocking, on-trend silhouettes like voluminous dresses and puffy flats, and of-the-moment jewelry like chunky chain necklaces and rings that every fashion person is wearing right now. Here, shop my edit of the best affordable fashion finds for under $100.
