32 Summer Picks I Found on Amazon That Look Way More Expensive Than $70

Even though summer is looking a lot different this year, all I want to do is wear flowy dresses, tanks, smocked tops, and everything in between. Honestly, I just miss getting dressed in "normal" clothes and wearing them outside my house. So I've really tried to make an effort this last month to wear pieces other than sweat shorts—not just for my sanity and productivity but to prove to myself that my clothes actually still fit. (I may or may not be baking a lot these days.)

It's hard to justify spending a lot of money on clothes right now, even if they do bring me joy. So I've turned to good ole Amazon to feed my shopping urge and make me feel like I'm still filling my closet with seasonal staples without having any buyer's remorse. Here are 32 summer picks I found that look way more expensive than they are (the most expensive item is $70) that I'll happily wear at home and know you'll be happy doing the same. You can thank me later.


I love the unique twist (no pun intended) on this basic racer tank top.

For when you want to wear something other than sweat shorts but still be comfortable.

I'll be living in these linen pants all summer long.

Ribbed tops are having a moment, and this $12 one deserves a spot in your closet.

A blazer that's actually light enough to wear through summer.

These shorts are equal parts relaxed and cool.

Pair this '70s-inspired tank with high-waist jeans, and you've got yourself the perfect summer uniform.


It's not really summer until you pull out your white purses.

Just in case you don't own a handwoven tote yet.

I dare you to find a $40 bag that's chicer than this one. (That doesn't apply to the other bags I've featured!)


Tortoise-shell anything makes every outfit more elevated.

I plan to layer my beaded necklaces with gold chains.

Gold hoops that look way more expensive than $55. 

Did you really think I wouldn't include an anklet?

Sunglass chains = the summer accessory you never knew you needed.


If there's one style of sandal to own this summer, it's a sporty pair.

The cutest Mary Janes I ever did see.

Your summer wardrobe isn't complete until you own a pair of woven slides.
