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

Cheap summer pieces from Amazon



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 54 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 ordered this and was totally surprised by the fit and quality. Still confused by the $13 price tag! 

There are so many fun iterations on our tank. We're not even sure this is our favorite. 

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.

Your basic sports bra just got jealous.

I don't think we'll ever tire of a lovely ribbed knit.

How about a sarong to go with that bikini? This one comes in a million colors.

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.

Yet another staple that our senior editor Allyson Payer made famous among our editors. She tried the cream stripe, but this blue one is nice too.  

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

These shorts are equal parts relaxed and cool.

The green strip is a solid bet too. 

The lettuce trim has me smitten.


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. 

This cute necklace costs about the same as a Sweet Green salad!

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.
