I Made an Affordable Shopping List for My Friend—She Loved These 7 Items Most


@basicstouch; STYLING: H&M Bucket Hat ($10)

Every time a new season rolls around, I get a flood of questions from my best friend about what to wear. It comes with the territory of working in fashion. But like most of us these days, she doesn't necessarily have the money saved up to splurge on a bunch of new pieces. So to help her out, I took the time to make her an affordable shopping list for this summer, and I figured that I should share her favorite pieces. 

Everything on this list retails for under $75, but none of these pieces sacrifice style for the sake of a more affordable price tag. I'm talking about shoes, bags, and plenty of clothing that hit all of this season's biggest trends. Think gingham button-down shirts, pointed-toe flats, and even a luxe-looking pair of leather sneakers that retail for $60.

If you want to see her favorite pieces (the first seven below) plus a whole lot more, keep scrolling.
