Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

I'll be honest, what I can allot to spend on my wardrobe is at a minimum this season. As a fashion editor, this is particularly tough because I always have my eye on a few wish list luxury buys, especially the new-in items I've taken note of from the runways. But the reality of what I'll actually be placing orders on these next few months is, well, on the much more affordable end of the spectrum. Regardless of cost, I pride myself on spotting elevated finds at pretty much any price point, and today, I'm sharing 30 such low-cost, high-impact buys that are high up on my personal shopping list for spring.

If you're curious to discover what I'm currently eyeing to update my spring wardrobe while still somehow managing to stay within budget, then keep reading to discover my favorite finds of the moment—from the perfect pair of Zara jeans to the viral Skims item I really want—and rest assured that nothing in this edit tops $150, although most of these items sit comfortably under $100. Happy spring and happy shopping!

Coming up, 25 fashion items our editors added to their closets this month.
