From Dresses to Sandals, These Summer Items Are Begging to Be Added to Your Cart

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

My mom always taught me growing up that you don't have to spend a lot of money to look chic. In fact, a few of my favorite pieces in my closet that earn me the most compliments cost a mere $20. Look, your girl isn't rolling in riches, so I've had some experience in finding the best places to snag good-looking pieces at affordable prices. One of those top places is Walmart. You wouldn't think the same store that carries household supplies and groceries would be the same store where fashion editors snag some incredibly good pieces, but I'm here to surprise you. During my recent scrolling escapade through the fashion side of the site, I found so many cute things, I had to make a full-on list. Want to see what's on it? Keep scrolling for poplin dresses, gold jewelry, swimsuits, and more that are all under $50 and right up my alley.

Yes, I will be wearing this weekly. With sneakers, sandals, heels—you name it.

I can tell you (because I'm wearing them), these look and feel way more expensive than they are.

The amount of basic white tanks one person needs? The limit does not exist.

This gives me major designer vibes but look at the price.

I didn't consider myself a sporty-sandal lover until recently.

I love this fun printed pair too. So many options!

Same print, different color. This doubles as an easy swimsuit coverup.

I always appreciate a good romper. It's the easiest thing to throw on when you're in an outfit rut.

I'm more of a pants person, so I like to find lightweight options for summer. Aka these.

These past few summers, long shorts have been proving superior. I'm so here for it.

Another easy piece to dress up or down. I'm thinking of a look with chunky white sneakers and gold huggie hoops.

Comfy loungewear, but make it summery.

And of course, you need matching shorts.

I always turn to puff sleeves to make a look effortlessly chic.

I'm so excited to be adding more swimwear to my closet.

Brighter colors are making more and more appearances in my closet.

A bodysuit tucked into jeans (or shorts!) + a chic blazer = outfit goals.

Wear 'em with the belt or without. Add flatform sandals for an epic seventies look.

You can't go wrong with a classic black set.

I have these in white, but I definitely need them in pink.

Wear these with your favorite swimsuit (trust me).

I highly recommend ordering this graphic tee one size up for a cool and casual look. I'd pair it with denim shorts over a bikini for a beach day.

The perfect LWD (little white dress) to throw on with sandals.
