If I were to combine the online inventory at Madewell, Free People, and Gap, I reckon there would be hundreds of thousands of items to choose from. Talk about overwhelming. But since it's my job to do the shopping for you, I rounded up some of the very best pieces from these affordable retailers, starting at $20 and capping out at $130.
Looking for some cute, quality basics? I found a striped T-shirt, white tank top, band tee, puff-sleeve blouse, and more. If you're anxiously looking forward to sunny days ahead, I found some amazing dresses and blouses that are begging to be added to your closet. And if you're planning on staying home for the time being, like me, I've also found soft, cozy sweatshirts, knit dresses, and pajama pants. Yep, there's something for everyone.
