Let me start by saying this is not your average, under-$100 roundup—I’ve spent hours making sure of that. Rather, these are the affordable finds that I wouldn’t just recommend to others but would actually wear myself. And, as some of you may already know, I’m extremely picky when it comes to that, but I like to think it’s a good thing for the most part.
So what should you expect below? Definitely a lot of basics as those are the backbones of simple-yet-cool style, not too much color but at least a few fun items, a sprinkling of trend pieces, and a handful of elegant accessories that look way more expensive than their price tags let on. If that all sounds satisfactory, which I hope it does, just keep scrolling to get started.
