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

·4 min read

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.

Free Assembly Tie Shoulder Tiered Maxi Dress ($39)

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

Scoop 14KT Gold Flash Plated Brass Hoop Earring Set ($24)

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

Free Assembly Ribbed Sweater Tank Top ($18)

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

C. Wonder Tiered Poplin Dress with Short Puff Sleeves ($37)

The bubblegum pink dress of my dreams.

Scoop Jute Wrapped Block Heel Sandal ($38)

These just scream "summer."

Scoop Sleeveless Sweater Dress ($49)

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

Free Assembly Seamed Cami ($16)

Prints are big this summer.

Free Assembly Pull On Shorts ($18)

Oh hey, matching shorts.

Portland Boot Company Athletic Sandal ($24)

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

Time and Tru Nature Sandal ($10)

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

Free Assmbly Camp Shirtdress ($28)

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

Free Assembly Short Sleeve Drawstring Romper ($34)

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

Free Assembly Pull-On Wide Leg Pants ($24)

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

Free Assembly Short Sleeve Maxi Shirtdress ($36)

This looks expensive.

Scoop Bermuda Denim Shorts ($24)

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

Scoop Bermuda Fray Hem Shorts ($24)

See, I'm telling you.

Scoop Solid Smocked Cami Dress ($32)

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

Scoop Ombre Crewneck Sweater ($26)

Comfy loungewear, but make it summery.

Scoop Ombre Jersey Knit Shorts ($20)

And of course, you need matching shorts.

Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara Tank Top Bodysuit ($15)

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

Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara Chambray Wide Leg Pants ($30)

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.

Time and Tru Two-Band Footbed Slides ($15)

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

Just add sandals.

Scoop 14K Gold Flash Plated Bead Bracelet Set ($11)

Wear these with your favorite swimsuit (trust me).

Daisy Street California Short Sleeve Graphic T-Shirt ($16)

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.
