I’m a picky shopper. Although I’m a shopping-obsessed editor, it takes a lot for me to actually commit to fashion purchases. I need to love them. They need to be worth it. They need to have a fashion-forward cool factor that I’ll want to wear on repeat. But all that doesn’t mean they need to be expensive. Sure, I’m all for buying quality investment pieces, but sometimes, I find a chic and affordable option that will get just as much wear and just as many compliments.
When I come across an affordable piece that I think is worth it, I add it to my cart pronto and, of course, excitedly share it with you, our dear readers. And this is exactly what I’m doing today. Below, I’m sharing the coolest affordable finds I’ve laid my eyes on this season that even I—a picky shopper—am really impressed by. Take a look below for the summer finds that I think are worth it, from elevated basics to trendy statement pieces. Best of all, everything is priced under $80.
