I'm just going to say it: I know a great affordable fashion buy when I see one. While I could sit down and explain in detail why exactly each of these finds is so spot-on, I prefer to rely on my gut instinct as it hasn't led me astray yet. You know how I can tell when something is really good versus just okay? It happens when I come across items—like the below 30—that make me feel all sorts of extreme emotions such as wonder, panic, and above all, pure delight. I'll even go so far as to say the items featured here will likely have the same effect on you.
You see, I've scoured the internet from top to bottom and found a whole lot of affordable clothing buys that shook me to my core. Sure, you could waste the better half of an hour hunting down these jaw-dropping finds for yourself, or you could simply trust me and scroll through my edit to see the best under-$98 clothing items that are alarming me by how good they are. So choose wisely, and happy shopping!
Suddenly all I want to wear is athletic shorts, and I just placed an order for these.
The gathered neckline and tie-up detail make this little tank look way pricier than it actually is. I can already envision it looking so good with denim shorts and slip skirts.
Any ribbed knit tank is an easy add to my cart, but this one has captured my attention for its particularly elevated look.
The ideal length that's not too short but not too long. Levi's does it again.
A little slice of cool-girl brand Sandy Liang for under $100? Count me in.
From the gauzy material to the dreamy blue color, this dress is a winner for more reasons than I have time to explain.
Just wait until you see the back to understand why retailers can barely keep this tank in stock.
I had to blink several times to make sure I wasn't imagining this sale price. For such a beautiful dress that hits on a number of trends, this is a straight-up steal. (Please also take a look at the back to fully understand.)
Such a fun way to wear to the '70s floral trend right now.
Fashion people everywhere are buying padded tanks in droves.
Boxers are trending right now and, yes, these are indeed from the men's section. Catch fashion girls wearing these around the house with an oversize tee or button-down.
I'd argue that these are the #1 shoe trend of the whole summer. Elevated and chic with a comfortable kitten heel, these aren't your average flip-flops.
How charming are these tie-up bows and micro gingham print?
When Levi's drops a new jean shape, our ears perk up. I can already tell that this "high loose" silhouette will earn its way into so many fashion girls' closets for its forward, '90s-inspired look.
Suddenly, playful beaded jewelry has shot to the top of my shopping list and I'm eyeing this daisy necklace to help me dress a bit cooler this summer.
Whether worn as a swimsuit coverup or tucked into shorts, I'm convinced that everyone needs a lightweight shirt as versatile as this.
To be honest, I want to wear this entire outfit.
Underwire bikinis are my all-time favorite swim trend, and Madewell just made the prettiest version yet.
I appreciate that the matching bottoms are offered in both low-rise and high-rise options.
For bringing that beachy vibe with you anywhere.
This pretty number deserves a look from all angles.
Le Specs just brought back one of its most popular sunglasses with more modern wide sides, and I already know at least five people who will buy them.
The '90s are calling.
When comfy shoes also happen to be trending hard, you take notice. When you find a pair for $40, you don't pass them up.
If you're new to shopping for clothes on Amazon, this affordable brand is a great place to start.
Add something extra to every outfit.
