21 Under-$50 Items I'm Eyeing to Help Me Dress a Little Less Boring This Season

As much as I like to think my simple style isn't boring, I would be lying if I didn't admit that my tendency to lean toward basics and neutrals didn't (at least, every once in a while) get a little mundane. It's had me thinking that a little shake-up wouldn't hurt, and what better season than spring (one which signifies new beginnings) than to switch things up?

Since, for many of us, budgets are tight all around right now, I figured I would focus on affordable items I'm eyeing. I can't take that much credit, though, because thanks to our Who What Wear collection, the right items weren't all that hard to come by. To see and shop the dresses, tops, skirts, and pants I'm considering at the moment—all of which are under $50—just keep scrolling.

Style this with the matching pants for a statement moment. You can always pair the top with jeans for a subtler look.

These will also look so good with a simple white tank and sandals.

This is just waiting to be paired with light-colored pants.

For someone who doesn't wear dresses that often, this seemingly simple number is a big step.

Don't worry—the matching shorts are linked below.

This is one of those prints you can wear year-round.

Just because I'm not going on vacation doesn't mean I can't dress like it.

I'm surprised this beauty is even still in stock.

I'd pair this with super simple slide sandals for a casual look (or house slippers).

This print is one of those few that feels subtle and statement-making at the same time.

Perfect for layering in spring and then wearing alone come the summer heat.

Wear this with any neutral top for seasons to come.
