Turns out $100 is all you need to start wearing some of the best spring fashion items this year. Yes, $100. I asked Who What Wear’s editors to comb through all of their favorite online retailers to uncover affordable picks for spring, and they came back with hand-picked selects that are topping their personal wish lists, so you know these are going to be good.
What they found is a mix of amazing items like utility pieces, strappy heels, and a tiger-print skirt that tap into the biggest trends for the season, as well as spring essentials like floral-print dresses, crewneck T-shirts, and jeans that come with incredible price tags. Go on to see which under-$100 spring fashion finds each of Who What Wear’s editors have their eye on now and shop each of them for yourself. Scroll to the end to see which items landed on my list, including my personal trick for finding Manolo Blahnik heels for under $100.
"Tiger print is the new leopard print, so get on it!"
"This sweater is just happy, and I have a hunch it will boost my mood when I wear it. The perfect affordable thrill for this 'will winter ever end?' period."
"There's a reason these tees always sell out. Celebrity stylist Karla Welch was committed to designing the be-all and end-all of perfect white shirts, and she did it."
"Don't tell Topshop, but I'd spend a lot more than $80 for these jeans."
"I've been eyeing these Valet shell hair clips for so long—if I don't buy them for spring, I feel like I'll miss my chance."
"I’m really into the utility trend for spring, and this vest seems like such a cool approach."
"Are you sensing a theme here? This miniskirt has also made its way into my wish list."
"The chicest way to add polish to a jeans and tee outfit."
"Beige is all the rage! I'm taking on the trend in these biscuit-tinted jeans."
"I'll be living in these white strappy as soon as the weather decides to cooperate!"
"These nail two trends in one go: They're a sleeker take on the cargo pant trend and, styled correctly, also hit on the wave of beige-toned outfits."
"My spring shopping philosophy right now is buy all the tie-dye, including this T-shirt."
"I think these would look cool with all of my new tie-dye."
"I'd style this exactly like Shopbop did."
"I hoard midi dresses because they're so easy to wear at the office. This super cute $65 one is about to be added to my collection."
"I'll need a good pair of denim shorts once the weather finally starts to warm up, and Levi's is always a safe bet."
I usually stick to more neutral tones, but I just ordered these sunny wide-leg jeans from H&M, and they are just so good.
I own this turtleneck in black and it's the ultimate layering piece. For spring, I'll be picking it up in white as well.
I already have a beige suit outfit planned in my mind to wear with these with.
Utility pants are another trend that is set to explode. This cool pair from & Other Stories is the perfect way to test-drive it.
Discounted Manolo's are my secret find on The RealReal—the prices are pretty incredible. These aren't my size, otherwise, they would already be in my shopping cart.
