When it comes to my monthly budget, I've prioritized travel, concerts, and other experiences over fashion lately. It's not always easy, especially after being exposed to so many stylish pieces through my work as a fashion editor. One way I like to satisfy my fashion cravings while budgeting is to keep my eye out for stylish and cheap finds that will round out my closet. Thankfully, the sales happening at the moment are flush with cool under-$100 options.

While I am often tempted to buy pieces on an absolute whim, I do my best to make meaningful purchases for the current season and those on the horizon. One way to do this is by using the three-three test, which I learned from Bobby Schuessler, our market director. This helps me determine exactly how and how often I will wear a piece before committing to it. This past week, I came across 30 items that are both affordable and spot-on for spring and beyond. Scroll ahead to shop my top picks of the moment.
