25 Affordable Items I Think Can Make a Wardrobe Feel Much "Stronger"

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares his or her top 25 must-haves or current wish list items.

I recently incorporated a slouchy blazer (a $70 Zara pick, to be exact) into my rotation in an effort to help elevate some of my go-to ensembles. With relaxed fashion reigning supreme for me right now, I thought the oversized jacket could bring a chic twist to some of my daily looks—without sacrificing comfort given the loose silhouette. In fact, when I need to look more dressed up for zoom meetings, I simply toss it on over a T-shirt with my joggers, and call it a day.

And that brings me to why I'm here today. After scrolling through pages and pages of new merch while doing market research for various stories, I noticed quite the smattering of other chic, affordable items that I think could also help make a wardrobe feel that much "stronger.” You know, similar to how my new staple blazer took my closet to that next level.

With all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out a range of under-$100 staples that might just pique your interest right now.

Next, check out more affordable spring items to consider.
