These are the type of fashion finds that warrant a smug-face emoji—because not only are they versatile and fashion-forward, but they also carry a modest price tag. From versatile tank tops to sandals that hit the biggest trends and dresses that garner a myriad of compliments, today we’re sharing our most satisfying sartorial finds of the year (so far!), all of which ring in at under $100.
“I actually have our editor Lauren to thank for putting these Zara tanks on my radar, but few things have been as inexpensive or useful as they have been for me this year. At $6 each, I bought two in black and two in white as soon as she showed them to me, and I think I’ve worn them all so much that the cost per wear is around one cent at this point.”
"I talk about these jeans a lot but they're just so soft and wonderful and timeless. They're light enough to wear in the summer but I see myself wearing them even more this fall and winter. My only complaint is that Levi's hasn't released them in a black wash yet!"
"I've been living in this tank all summer long. The neck dips low enough to create a really nice v-shape, and sofar the straps haven't stretched at all, which has happened in the past with similar style tops. I also love the rich brown color, a nice break from black."

"With Jéan is always one of my go-to sources for affordable dresses and tops. This rust-colored halter dress is the perfect low-key piece to pack on vacation, but I also love wearing it with a pair of Chanel slingbacks (like I did here) to dress it up."
“These are by far my best purchase of the year so far. I’ve worn them more times than I can count with absolutely everything in my closet, from jeans to pretty floral dresses. Delicate strappy sandals and square-toes are two massively popular shoe styles we’ve seen this year, and these sandals nail the two trends perfectly. Moreover, every time I wear them, I’m pleasantly surprised how comfortable and walking-friendly they are. I’ll be wearing them until my toes turn blue and I eventually have to succumb to wearing boots again!”
“I finally added one of Aritzia’s famous ribbed tanks to my wardrobe this year and have been wearing it nonstop ever since. The thick material is really comfortable, and the square neckline makes it feel more special than my any of my other basics. Plus, it reels in the compliments like nothing else. Seriously, everyone needs to own this tank.”
"This Zara dress got me so many compliments. It's the perfect fun thing to throw on for a summer day or night of any kind. I love wearing it with Converse, but it looks equally as good with strappy sandals. "
