Best buys under $100

10th July, 2020

There are so many great sales on right now which means there are plenty of bargains to be snapped up. The good thing about scoping out luxury sites such as Matches Fashion and Net-a-Porter during sale time is that there are some gorgeous luxe items that are a fraction of the price. Also, if you’re in the market for new basics or just something to brighten up your wardrobe then definitely shop around right now because there are plenty of cute options to be snapped up.

In trawling through some of my fave websites of late I’ve stumbled upon the below edit, with a mixture of chain stores buys to great accessories and some truly wearable pieces that are destined to be worn on high rotation.

Smythson produce ultra chic stationery and this notebook would make a welcome addition to any WFH desk situation.

These sunnies are on trend and at such a miniscule price tag, it makes sense to add it to your accessories collection now.

Keep your head toasty with this Alexander Wang beanie. The dove grey shade also makes it a versatile piece that can work with myriad looks.

I’ve found that statement accessories are one of the easiest ways to really elevate a look. These Rebecca de Ravenel earrings do just that.

White sneakers are a forever staple and with biz-leisure dressing now very much a thing, you can now wear them casually or (if your office dress code allows) at work.

One of the things I really valued during iso was having special pieces dotted around my home to brighten up my day. This Anya Hindmarsh candle is a great reminder that there’s always a rainbow around the corner.

Exercising outdoors just got more chic with this sleek C&M baseball cap. And even if you’re not planning on working out, it’s still a great addition to any casual look.

This cute top is so perfect for wearing with everything from jeans to shorts and skirts. Love anything that can be worn in so many different ways.

Another great pair of sunglasses destined for your future summer wardrobe. The slimline profile make this such a sharp way to finish off an outfit.

Loungewear options that are also stylish enough to be worn out and about get my tick of approval. These drawstring linen pants can be worn doing everything from the school run to grabbing a coffee.

I like the old school feel of this striped top from Country Road. A comfy addition to any WFH wardrobe or weekend outfit rotation.

I saw this top and thought of how many different ways it could be worn. When you have the right basics it can make getting dressed so much easier.

When a new season hits, it’s only natural to want to invest in a few new pieces to officially welcome the change in weather. And without a doubt spring is one of my favourite times of year as the weather’s getting warmer which means it’s time to embrace lots of light and airy pieces. I know a wardrobe refresh can be pricey which means it pays to shop smart and find pieces that will update your look but won’t cost a fortune.

I don’t think a spring wardrobe is complete without a beautiful dress to take you through the next few months and I can’t go past a floral print or a great wrap dress which is guaranteed to be all kinds of flattering. That said, you it’s also great to stock up on basics such as this tee or singlet to work back with everything from jeans to a skirt.

There’s also no shortage of affordable accessories to add to your wardrobe. From these classic white sneakers which will go with everything to these beautiful polka dot flats, it’s all about comfortable options that are still guaranteed to look polished. Also don’t forget about a pair of statement earrings or these adorable blush sunglasses.
