I Never Spend More Than $30 on These Fashion-Girl Staples—Here's How

Don't get me wrong. I love splurging on a specialty item time and again, but there are selected few fashion-girl favorites that I just can't get myself to throw down for. When it comes to things like tailoring and leather, my budget is usually a lot larger than it is when I'm talking about any of the items listed below. Now, just because these items are clearly more "basic" than a showy designer piece, that doesn't make them any less important or valuable. 

Look at any influential fashion girl in the industry, and I can guarantee that she uses a combination of the items below as the building blocks for a stunning look. So maybe those girls don't head to Amazon for their fundamental wardrobe basics, but I sure do. Ahead, follow along as I walk you through the sartorial staples I refuse to pay more than $30 for. And in case you didn't catch my mini spoiler up there, the way I can score these items for cheap is Amazon. Yes, this is about to be a major Amazon haul, but it's one that will leave your jaw dropped at how much money you could have been saving if you only did a little more digging on the site. 

White Tank Tops

With a basic as simple as a white tank, there's no need to spend more than $30. Thanks to classic brands like Hanes and Fruit of the Loom, you can find all the best white tank tops and more on Amazon.

Chain Necklaces

Whether you're looking to buy your first chain necklace or have found yourself addicted to the jewelry trend and just can't get enough, Amazon has got you covered. From chunky to delicate versions, the selection here will have you in awe.

Black Leggings

Leggings are one of the most beloved items in a fashion girl's closet, and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. Instead of splurging on another pair, err on the cheap side and buy one of the below pairs instead. 

Oversize Button-Downs

Oversize button-downs are life. Wear them over a swimsuit as a cover-up, tucked into jeans, or untucked with leggings and little heels and you'll find yourself feeling polished and cool every time. 

Basic Bikinis

Save your swimsuit splurging for something statement-making and fun. But when it comes to the staples, head to Amazon.

I personally am always tempted to buy the designer version of something basic, especially sweatpants, but these days, I've been hunting on Amazon first, and let me tell you, I've been saving a ton.

Seamless Underwear

Every fashion girl needs to have a well-stocked selection of seamless underwear. Unless you're into a visible panty line (more power to you if you are), having an assortment of this lingerie staple will ensure you never run into wardrobe malfunctions again. 

Crew Socks

Last but not least, crew socks. This current trend started on Instagram and hasn't slowed its roll since last month.
