I, like many in the fashion scene, have an expensive eye for clothing. I love admiring designers’ new collections and saving up for a purchase from a contemporary or indie brand. While I do curate a selection of special pieces I splurge on in my wardrobe, I’m still on a budget, and a majority of what I shop skews affordable. Since I’m always on the hunt for new fashion items for my job, I like to think I’ve gotten pretty good at finding things that have the price people want but don’t sacrifice style or quality.
Since spring is coming up and many are on the lookout for new items to wear as the weather gets better, I thought I’d offer a little help. Below, I’ve rounded up 30 pieces from all our favorite affordable retailers that I think are going to get plenty of wear this season and beyond. I’m talking about ballet flats, maxi dresses, ruffled tops, and much more. Keep scrolling and have a look for yourself.
