After catching up on the London and Milan Fashion Week shows, I've felt a zest of inspiration to add a few new things to my closet. In combination with the comeback of street style and the exciting debut of new runway trends to discuss, my appetite for new clothes is at an all-time high. My wallet has other ideas, though, so I've resigned myself to sticking to a budget of under $100.

Thankfully, I've mastered the art of scouting finds that look wildly more expensive than they actually are, so finding stylish, affordable pieces hasn't been difficult at all. Since spring is on the horizon, most of the things I'm pinging fall into the light-layer and vibrant-color categories, including a flashy lime-green minidress from & Other Stories and a structured cream blazer from H&M. There are plenty more fancy-looking finds below, so get settled in and keep scrolling. 

I've seen similar versions of this set sell for over $200, so yeah, you'll want to jump on this one early.

Another key to looking expensive: Try to find colors that are bold but not gaudy. This shade of green is powerful yet not in your face.

Watercolor prints like this are so good.

The styling here is bookmark worthy.

Luxe basics are vital building blocks for any wardrobe.

I really thought this was Fendi or Dior at first glance.

It's all about the paneling on these jeans.

I'm a true believer in a black midi dress. It's a fail-safe choice for any occasion.

Usually, a fun bag like this retails for at least $250.

Right now, I'm stocking up on polished basics like there's no tomorrow.

The Row's influence is very clear.

The lace-up back is the true star here.

Because you can never have enough BMDs (black midi dresses).

A pair of pants that will keep people guessing.

Come spring, tops like these will be so handy.

Preppy in the front, party in the back.

Last year, I spotted similar jeans on Farfetch for almost $1000.

Just give me this entire look, thank you.

A beachside vacation can't come fast enough.

The extremely high neck looks so elevated.

Style this with dark-gray dress pants and strappy heels for a '90s-inspired outfit.

This shade of pink is calling my name.

As noted above, this dress deserves a special mention.

Yep, I'll be wearing these firmly into October 2022.

I'm becoming a fan of tube dresses.
