These Under-$100 Items Look Fancy as Hell

I don't know about you guys, but I've been in the mood to be rude when it comes to buying clothes. My shopping carts are chock full of designer items, but unless I'm ready to forsake it all for a Khaite sweater (which, unfortunately, I'm not) it's imperative I slow my roll and stick to pieces that actually fit within my budget. Faced with this predicament, I set out to find the best under $100 buys that look like they could cost much more.

Real talk: I was more than pleasantly surprised with my search results. A perfectly cut vegan leather blazer came in at $89. The coziest ribbed cardigan? $20! And a beyond chic pair of platform thong sandals could be yours for $60 (they will most definitely be mine). So, even though it's nice to have the real thing, I'd argue that nothing feels better than the envious gasps you'll get after divulging the inexpensive price you paid for your elevated outfit.  

Happy shopping! 

I'm interested in incorporating a bodysuit like this one into my nighttime outfit repertoire. 

I've always found wrap dresses to be so sophisticated. 

All I can say is va-va-voom!

I've been on the fence about my cutoff shorts lately, so these relaxed ones feel like a necessary upgrade. 

Give me all the saturated button downs. 

I'd like to channel Sandy at the end of Grease in these. 

I've always been partial to a darker wash when it comes to denim. 

This top offers the flattering shape of a bustier without the discomfort. 

I was eyeing a pair of earrings just like this for over $250. 

Simply the best vegan leather blazer on a budget around. 

These look just like The Row and I must have them. 

I love pairing a satin midi skirt with a relaxed t-shirt when I'm running around. 

These look so much more expensive than $69. 

You really don't have to do much else with your outfit when you have a chunky loafer at the helm. 

These will be perfect for my trip to Spain in August. 

If you're a fan of the "coastal grandmother" look, you need this sweater. 

An everyday, heeled sandal for $50 is a worthy investment in my book.

I'm shocked that these jeans are still in stock, they're that good. 

In my opinion, bucket hats are for adding a pop of color. 

I'm all about the striped polo shirt trend. 

You can remove the shoulder strap from this purse and wear it as a handbag, which I prefer. 

Throw this on for dinner, the beach, to run errands… You will get so much wear out of this dress. 

Lionness always comes through with the affordable yet chic blazers.
