I love the thrill of getting my hands on a fresh new fashion item, but with a European vacation behind me, a new car lease, and several home updates I’ve had to make this summer, I’ve put myself on a tight budget when it comes to shopping this season.

Now that we’ve entered into August and fall is just around the corner, I’m focused on transeasonal pieces that can see me through the summer and beyond. And who better to glean some affordable fashion tips from than the people who basically shop for a living—my fellow editors! I asked them to share their suggestions for what to buy with $100 this month. From versatile black dresses to strapless tops and cord necklaces, their chic suggestions below have something for everything.
