I'm Stepping Up My Outfit With These Under-$100 Game-Changing Pieces

Do you know what one of the best feelings in the world is when it comes to shopping? It’s that perfect moment when you come across an affordable score that would make anyone do a double-take when you tell them the low price. Basically, I am a forever fan of shopping for pieces that only look expensive.

With that in mind, I recently set off to see what budget-friendly pieces fit the bill for summer and it was quite the success. My main focus was on elevated basics (cool button-downs and ribbed tank tops), updated classics, chic sandals, and trendy designer-inspired options (I definitely had cutouts and smocked styles in mind here). I was very pleased to come across a plethora of under-$100 picks.
