Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 finds on their current wish list.

Why is it that even though I don't have anywhere to go this summer, I still want to freshen up my wardrobe? It feels superfluous, especially when we're living through a pretty unstable economic climate. So instead of indulging every whim and using retail therapy as a way to quell my anxiety from being inside for so many months, I'm giving myself a summer spending budget. Anything I buy must be on sale and come in under $100. Bonus points if it's 50% off or more. Yes, you read that right. I've found some amazing deals, and I'm willing to share them with you because I'm in a generous spirit. Keep reading for some bright, cheerful, super-on-sale items that will add a little sunny spark to the rest of your summer. (It really only just started, you know…)

Up next, our editor found the best under-$46 accessories on the internet, and she's ready to prove it.

Copy Editor, Branded Content

Aralyn Beaumont joined Who What Wear as the copy editor for branded content after a career in food media. Years of poring over intricate recipes with a fine-tooth comb and working with high-profile chefs has prepared her well for working with fashion's top brands while honoring Who What Wear's voice. Her background as a research editor makes her a finicky editor who will probably care too much about making sure all copy is as factually accurate and aligned with the house style guide as can be. Maybe it's because she's a Gemini, but her personal style is impossible to pin down: One day you'll see her in a turtleneck sweater tucked into a midi skirt with heeled boots, and the next, she'll be wearing mom jeans, a white Hanes tee, and classic Vans. At the end of the day, her style reflects her various moods. Sometimes it will be feminine and elegant, and others it will be grungy or androgynous. Certain things will always remain constant, though. She'll forever be on the hunt for the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans.
