While my closet is stocked with plenty of investment pieces I’ve collected over the years, it also includes many affordable pieces I wear on a regular basis. While I believe in saving my money for bigger items I can wear for years and years, I’ve also uncovered lots of great fashion staples that fit into my personal style and also ring in at under $100.
I’m talking everything from everyday basics like jeans and leather sandals to trendier items like oval sunglasses or a beret I’m not ready to splurge on. These are affordable pieces I’ve worn, loved, and can personally vouch for. Ahead, I’m breaking down some of my favorite under $100 fashion finds straight from my closet. See how I’m wearing them, and shop each of my picks for yourself.
Levi’s is my go-to brand for affordable jeans, and this style is one of my favorite cuts. I’m actually wearing them this very moment.
This cropped cut is perfect for pairing with anything from sandals to boots.
I can't resist a pretty floral top. This outfit had me feeling like Marie Antoinette.
Now that this is on sale you can get it for just $88.
I've been on the hunt for the perfect denim shorts and finally found this high-waisted pair.
& Other Stories is a great spot to find cool affordable pieces.
With the '90s resurgence this year, I wanted to test out oval sunglasses for myself.
This pair from Le Specs made me feel like a modern-day Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy.
I picked up this beret last year and found it to be much more wearable than I originally thought.
Now I'm tempted to buy one in other colors.
I discovered these black opaque Wolford tights years ago and always recommend them to my friends. They're a winter essential to wear with skirts and dresses.
Yes, $49 per pair of tights might sound expensive, but these seriously last forever.
Another piece I've been wearing for years? These super-soft Splendid turtlenecks. They're lightweight and perfect for layering.
I always stock up on these for fall.
I just added this red turtleneck to my closet and love the bold color.
This comes in eight different shades.
My friend Carly designs the most perfectly cut bodysuits for her brand Helfrich, and I'm hooked.
I'm so into this square neckline.
I discovered this top at Zara and packed it on a recent trip to Italy.
Clearly I'm a fan of unusual necklines these days.
Another great find from Zara? These leather sandals.
I'm thinking about ordering another pair in case I wear mine out.
