Confession: I get more excited by the idea of making a few affordable clothing purchases rather than saving up for one bigger investment piece. While I definitely advise both kinds of shopping, I can't deny how fun it is to purchase a cheap thrill that can quickly refresh my wardrobe without totally throwing off my budget. Being able to order a cute new topand take myself out to dinner? It's a win-win in my book.
But you're all fashion people like I am, so I bet you understand how time-consuming it can be to scroll through your favorite affordable retailers in search of the best under-$100 items. Not all affordable fashion items are made equal, though. I handpicked the clothing, bags, shoes, and accessories that will look cool now, next season, and beyond because cheap doesn't have to mean it has an expiration date.
Fret not, dear shopper, as I've scoured the World Wide Web from top to bottom and found 40 affordable fashion buys that I'm crowning the best of the internet. From the festive sandals on offer at Mango to the cutest mini bags at Topshop and the best shoes from Zara, keep scrolling to shop the ultimate fast-fashion edit.
I've been wearing this jacket from our Who What Wear collection nonstop, and the compliments just keep rolling in. The tortoiseshell buttons and oversize sleeves are just a few of the things that I love about it.
