All I can say to preface what you’re about to come across is this: Brace yourself. After all, I had to. While I was expecting that reaching out to my fellow editors to see what under-$100 items they’ve been eying this month would possibly save me some money by shopping on the more affordable side for summer, it has somehow left me with more items in my cart than I could have possibly imagined—and definitely no funds to be saved.
From swimsuits and tops to dresses and sandals, below you’ll find everything you need for a stylish season ahead and more, with every item coming in under $100 (oftentimes well under). Furthermore, whether your style is super classic or you live for the latest trends, there’s definitely something for everyone. Just keep scrolling to get started, and when it’s all over, don’t forget that I warned you.
"I used to hate one-shoulder tops, but after sitting next to our market editor, Nicole, for almost two years now, my mind has been changed. I think they are a fun and easy alternative to a basic tank top, and luckily they are extremely affordable."
“I love investing in cute bikini sets because in the summer I'll literally just run around—even for errands—in cut-offs, a bikini top, and something lightweight and maybe a littleeee bit see through up top. (Like this!) Maybe this is the (non-fashion) beauty editor in me, but I have no patience for putting together outfits in the summer! I want to be as comfortable and minimal as possible.”
