The Under-$75 Spring Styles My Whole Group Chat Is Buzzing About

Like most people, I rely on my best friends for fashion advice. I have a seven-person group chat filled with girlfriends I've stayed in touch with from high school, to my study abroad, and all the way to professional life. While we're scattered around the country now, we all find a way to stay in touch via our rambling late-night messages—mostly, I'll admit, for recommendations on where to shop.

Naturally, as the fashion editor friend, I bear the brunt of the work, but after spending three hours sharing links back and forth since we have an upcoming girls' trip and wedding we're all meeting up IRL for, our shopping expertise has leveled up. From can't-miss spring trends to affordable, yet chic jewelry pieces, we've rounded up all the $75-and-under pieces you absolutely need to add to your cart this spring.

Barrel jeans aren't going anywhere this season.

Haven't you heard? Butter yellow is the color of the season.

This off-the-shoulder top looks so expensive.

The perfect warm-weather essential.

My friends are into cuffed jeans at the moment, so, naturally, I had to drop the link to this pair.

You always need a chic white button-down shirt.

Given we're all Gen Z, it's no surprise we're all obsessed with Aritzia.

I just bought a pair of these shell earrings for vacation and I influenced three of my closest friends to get them so we can match.

Another vacation find I simply had to send to my Miami-based friends.

Simply stunning.

Although I already have the gold, I'm eyeing the silver version of this chic clutch.

Entering my Meredith Blake era this spring.

Hailey Bieber-approved,

After Editor in Chief Kat posted this pair on Instagram, I immediately DM'd my friends about how chic they are.

The price on these is too good to resist.

So easy.

The perfect top for our next girl's night out.

These jeans are universally flattering.

So cute!

Trust me, a sleek black belt elevates any outfit.

Okay, H&M, I see you!

I think I need these.

After my friend asked my chat if we've seen any cute going-out tops for the warmer spring days, I knew I had to send her this.

I almost gatekept this adorable cardigan for myself.


We all own (and love!) this Reformation top.

This is the perfect affordable alt for a designer sun hat. Mine is currently sitting pretty at the top of my closet.

These are en route to me as we speak.

Another going-out top my friends and I can all get behind.

We're obsessed with the red color trend this season, and this dreamy Zara dress fits the bill.

I'll leave you with this pretty find.
