Trust Me: These Under $50 Picks Are Elite in Every Single Way

Clothing Under 50 Striped Button Down



Listen, we love a splurge purchase, but we also appreciate a good save, which is why we're always keeping an eye on our favorite brands' latest affordable drops and annual sales. While the internet has no shortage of shoppable material, like Nordstrom's winter sale and fine jewelry that's actually affordable, there's nothing better than an inexpensive find that looks expensive. That's why we rounded up the best under $50 picks that will make you look as elite as everyone else already thinks you are.

We searched high and low from the fan favorite department store Nordstrom to beloved retailers like Mango and Zara to pull together a comprehensive list of pieces that will make you feel like yourself at your very best. After all, who wants to leave the house in a blah outfit? That's just a recipe for a bad day. Below, all the ingredients for a truly killer 'fit, all for under 50 bucks.

A crisp, blue Oxford shirt is always a good idea.

A ribbed midi dress is the ultimate elevated staple piece.

Mid-length shorts add a laid-back feel to any ensemble. 

Nothing says elegance more than a classic turtleneck. We love the eye-catching marled blue color.

Nothing says casual yet classic more than a pair of baggy jeans.

A good button down never goes out of style.

We'd wear these all-white Birks well after Labor Day.

May we suggest pearls and heart-shaped hoops for that extra touch of sweetness?

A blouse that ties at the shoulder is the perfect delicate detail to take your outfit from day to night.

A simple camel scarf is a perfect neutral piece.

V-necks with muted tones are the new basic t-shirt.

Loose fitting mock necks are perfect for spring.

This cap sleeve cropped tee is perfect for layering.

Cropped knits are the new full length tee.

The pointelle detail is just darling.

If we could wear this turtleneck every day for the rest of winter, we would.

Gingham isn't just for picnic blankets anymore.

Classic blue jeans should never be overlooked.

Slipping into a cozy sweater will have you feeling like you're wearing a blanket on your shoulders.

If you're tired of working from home in unnecessarily tight fitting pants, this one is for you.

You can't go wrong with a pleated frocked dress.
