Best buys under $100

2nd July, 2021

It’s always so great to be able to do this round-up and uncover all the stylish, affordable fashion buys out there. We’re still in the midst of winter dressing so I’ve made sure to include some cosy pieces to snuggle up in, along with statement knits that are guaranteed to add a lift to any look. Plus there are some luxe for less accessories that are going to add some polish and personality to an outfit. Here are some of the best buys under $100 this month.

These Gucci-esque loafers are always a great option for comfortable yet elevated footwear. A few great flats are always a staple of any wardrobe, and when you can find a pair as affordable as this, it would be remiss of you not to snap them up.

Turning up the colour when it comes to winter looks is one of the best ways to turn a tired outfit into something you’ll want to put on. A cardi such as this, with its vibrant injections of colour is just the thing to put a pep in your step.

I love the versatility of a jumper like this—the grey colour is something that will go with virtually anything while the shape and the simple buttons are understated enough to enable this piece to work back with so many different outfits.

In case you’ve missed the memo, beige is back! And this affordable sweater is one way to dip your toe into the trend and have a new go-to in your closet that’s guaranteed to play nicely with myriad outfits.

Ever since I introduced a chunky gold chain into my life, I haven’t stopped accessorising with it. It’s a unexpectedly versatile piece and can turn even the most casual of outfits into something more. Plus when it’s this affordable how could you not?

Loungewear is still always on my shopping list as it’s something that’s always in high demand in my wardrobe. These tracksuit pants from Assembly Label are equal parts comfortable and on trend.

Love this drop shoulder striped top for its oh-so perfect shape and the classic pattern. If you want a failsafe top to add to your collection, you should definitely try this design.

Great colour, perfect sleeve and the kind of jumper that will look a dream when paired with denim. And it’s on sale too so run don’t walk!

Bubblegum pink perfection is always hard to say no to, and when it features in a cardi like this, well, it’s simply a no-brainer. Pop this on over denim, with dresses, with your fave skirt… the list is endless.

I’ve found statement earrings to be one of the easiest ways to dress up a look and this pair comes in at the right price, and the design is spot on.

Compiling the edit for this post is always so much fun because it’s seriously great to see how many really on trend, versatile pieces are out there for under $100. I think that no matter your budget, there’s always a way to update your wardrobe with great, affordable pieces. I think a high-low mix is always the key to cultivate a look that’s all your own and the best part is, you don’t have to break the bank to do it.

Love a matching loungewear set for a day spent at home and this one is perfect — great colour, price and most of all it looks utterly comfy. Bookmark this look for your next Netflix session.

A cable knit turtleneck jumper is one of those things that I just love during winter as it’s such a polished piece to pair with more casual pieces like jeans or a cropped pant. You can’t go wrong with a neutral hue like this because it goes with virtually anything.

I had to share these jeans because as someone who is petite, I am forever trying to find jeans that are just the right length. So when you find a good pair, in a great wash made for a more diminutive stature, it’s important to alert everyone to them!

Elastics are usually relegated to the bottom of most gym bags, but not these vibrant elastics by The Upside. They’re a playful touch to a workout look and so much more fun than the regular kind.

Great frames are a staple of any look for me and these are just the thing to add a pop of colour to an outfit and give them a little extra touch of attitude.

‘Tis the season for stocking up on cold weather essentials and a great beanie should be one of them. This is made of cashmere which makes it just that much more luxe.

I love the Camilla and Marc range of tees as they’re super sleek and simple in design which makes them great for mixing and matching. You can’t go wrong with a classic monochrome palette like this.

I am really loving statement earrings at the moment and have found to be a really easy way to update existing looks. This pair is so on trend, yet has a classic vibe to them that will allow you to wear them beyond this season.

Supergas are one of those sneakers that you just can’t go wrong with. What I love about this pair are the rainbow eyelets — such a fun touch and they give a classic pair of white sneakers some extra personality.

These trackies come in a range of different colours, so if you want some inexpensive loungewear updates, this is one to consider. A tapered style is really great as it looks a bit more ‘fashion’.

Compiling this post every month always results in unearthing some great buys. I’ve always been a firm believer that a stylish look doesn’t have to cost a fortune, and I’ve always favoured a high-low mix when it comes to my wardrobe. I’ll work back affordable pieces with slightly pricier items, and firmly believe an expensive price tag doesn’t always equate to great style. I’ve found some fun fashion pieces for under $100 that will become a welcome addition to your outfit repertoire.

Simple jewellery that can be worn on a day to day basis is always an important part of any accessories collection, and these earrings definitely fit the brief. They’re versatile enough to be worn in several different ways while still elevating any outfit.

This jumpsuit is such a great casual look option. Plus it’s a great option to have on hand on those days when I just want a simple, unfussy outfit. Worn with sandals or sneakers, it’s an easy way to do off duty dressing.

A little Bottega-esque, this pouch with its puffed, quilted texture is right on trend. Use it to add a little injection of fun to look, plus it’s a great size to carry your daily essentials.

I’m a huge fan of layering necklaces, and this choker achieves the effect without having to fuss around trying to determine which necklace goes with this. Love the celestial theme too.

I am always on the hunt for the perfect white tee so this top caught my eye because it has a polished feel which means it can be worn in a casual way, but can still be paired back with slightly dressier looks.

Now that we’re heading into autumn/winter, a pair of great black pants is a must. I can see this being worn with a tee or a button down, layered with a jumper and coat, and making for such a stylish, yet cosy ensemble.

The colour and cut of this dress makes it such a great after dark look. The green hue is a fun alternative to the LBD, while the streamlined silhouette ensure it still looks elegant.

A denim shirt is one of those things that if you don’t have one yet, you won’t realise just how versatile it is. This Levi’s number is a great hue for doing a double denim pairing.

Black slides are such a great addition to any shoe wardrobe. I’ve always found them to be easy to pair with multiple looks, plus the simple and elegant style ensures it can be worn in myriad ways.

A dainty cuff makes a great layering piece, and this style would make a pretty addition to any jewellery stack. Or you could allow it to shine on its own and use it to add the perfect finishing touch to an outfit.

I’m excited for this month’s best buys under $100 because there are some truly great pieces that are definitely worth adding to cart. I’ve rounded up some affordable wardrobe buys that are perfect for updating your current look, but also a few little accessories that will help you do everything from get organised to brighten up an outfit. So, prepare to welcome a few new additions into your closet.

This shirt dress has the kind of fashion forward design that looks expensive but in reality comes in at under $100. If you snap up the dress in the other colour way you’ll even score yourself an extra 30% off. So, bookmark this because you can wear it on a date, out with friends or just because.

Casual dresses that can be easily thrown on without too much styling involved are a lifesaver. This dress is the ideal comfy casual option for heading to the beach or just over the weekend chilling out. The colour is also super versatile making it a real bargain buy.

If you’re going to invest in beautiful clothes you have to be prepared to care for them. But it can also be tricky determining exactly what to use. Enter this set just in time for autumn/winter. It’s a cashmere/wool wash set that will make caring for winter woolies much easier.

I have spoken of my love of oversized denim jackets of late and this is one perfect example of it. The faded black wash, combined with the relaxed silhouette make it ideal for the popping over many an outfit.

Earrings are one of the best and easiest ways to transform the look and feel of an outfit. This gold pair is fun enough to make a statement but not so OTT that it can’t be worn with multiple looks.

Balloon sleeves? Tick. Ruched bodice? Tick. Beautiful print? Tick. This top ticks all the boxes and is the kind of thing that can I could see pairing as beautifully with a skirt or pants as it does with denim.

I’m all about practical but attractive storage and organisation options and this is cosmetic case is roomy enough to house most beauty products, but not so oversized that it can’t fit easily into most bathroom drawers.

With a slight nod to Bottega Veneta’s puffed shoe range, this is a stylish and sexy addition to any event wardrobe. I love the fact that it’s sleek and simple enough in design that it can play well with most looks easily.

Good, practical basics are the cornerstone of most wardrobes and this black bodysuit fits into that category. I love a bodysuit as it removes any wayward garments becoming untucked, plus it achieves a really clean line.

I’m all for practical and affordable sun protection and this bucket hat is just the thing that you can pop into your bag for everyday use. Also black is an easy one to work with as it can be paired back with multiple looks.

Hello, perfect white tee. Love this as a layering piece heading into winter, but it’s also ideal on its own tucked into shorts, a skirt or jeans. It’s another score in the great basics department.

While the height of sale time has come and gone, it doesn’t mean there aren’t any great buys to be found right now. It’s always fun to pulling together this edit because there are so many affordable finds to be found. In fact, this month I’ve rounded up various finds (including one super luxe beauty find) that will certainly brighten up your month.

Love the crossback feature of this dress. The simplicity of this style means it’s easily reworked in different looks with a quick change in accessories. All that and at under $100 too.

Le Specs are one of my fave sunglasses brands simply because they have such a great range at such a good price point. I’m really loving this style with its tortoiseshell frame and oval shape making it a classic piece to finish off any outfit.

Ah Byredo. They do such beautiful products, from candles to lotions. And if your hands are currently taking a beating from all the handwashing you’re doing, then definitely add this cream to cart. It’s a great scent and feels like such a special treat every time you use it.

A flattering kimono style dress at an affordable price. Love the crisp white colour and the ultra feminine silhouette. This would be great paired with flats or a dainty sandal.

You can’t tell here but this skirt has a delicate plisse finish which makes it worth it for that alone. Love the polka dot print, and the monochrome makes it super versatile.

This little playsuit is perfect for the beach or a casual outing. Just pair it with some slides and you’re set.

Who doesn’t love a pretty (and affordable) floral dress? There’s lots to love here: the sweetheart neckline, subtle puff sleeve and the simple and elegant print.

It’s all about Bottega Veneta right now and this is a close dupe to their quilted leather mules. This chocolate shade is such a great one to add depth to any dressy look, and it’s a versatile hue too.

Simple espadrille slides are a summer staple and this pair with its crossover straps is a fun addition to a beach look.

Red and pink is such a vibrant and fun colour combination, and when you throw a polka dot print in the mix you’ve got yourself a winner. This slip dress style is the kind of thing that’s made for a night of dinner and drinks.

Cat eye sunglasses are one of my favourite styles and I have dozens of them in my collection. This Le Specs pair is subtle and elegant making it a great piece to have around all summer.

If you’ve added get fit to your new year’s resolution list, now might be the time to pick up some cute gym pieces. This sports bra is one that will see you through many a workout.

Square neck tops are definitely having a moment, and this dusty pink style with its keyhole feature is the kind of thing that can instantly update a look and give it an on-trend feel.

Espadrilles. They’re a summer staple year after year, and such a comfy alternative to heels. Also, you can bookmark them for the days when (hopefully in the not too distant future) you may just find yourself navigating cobblestoned streets during a European summer.

One of the building blocks of any wardrobe, now is a good a time as any to stock up on a white tank. The square neck is very now and oh-so flattering too.

These Arizona Love sandals have become Insta-famous, and now is your chance to snap them up for a reduced price. They’re also so ridiculously comfortable, you’ll wonder how you ever survive without them.

Thongs have quietly made a comeback when it comes to polished casual wear and this style is the ideal one to have — they’re polished and understated, making them easy to pair back with so many different looks.

These comfy shoes are going to be everywhere this summer so you may as well snap up a pair now. White is also such a fresh colour that can easily be worked back with myriad looks.


Who wants a Camilla and Marc skirt for a fraction of the price? If you’re nodding then snap up this sage-coloured beauty which is now heavily discounted on The Iconic.

Sleek black slides are going to be your go-to shoe in the warmer months and this style is so understated and cool. The square silhouette adds to its on-trend appeal.

You can never have too many sunglasses in my opinion and these are the right shade of tortoise shell to be worn back with so many different looks.

A quick whip around a few of my fave shopping haunts has unearthed so many great buys. I definitely think there’s plenty to add to cart this month, particularly pieces that will work well for spring next month. So if you’re in the mood for a fashion fix, here are a few that are worth checking out.

I fell in love with the old school packaging of these lip salves. They’re such a handy size and I think it’s always great to have a few of these on hand to have at home, in one’s bag and at work.

This jacket is lightweight and a great option to have when battling trans-seasonal weather. I like the tie around the waist which always gives a flattering fit.

A great print and a smart addition to any work or smart casual look. It’s also the kind of jacket that’s handy to have around when you’re faced with a last minute Zoom call and need to quickly look polished.

Simple minimalist slides are always a welcome option to any spring/summer wardrobe. I love that these are a metallic as they’re still easily mixed and matched but add a pop of colour to a look.

Add a touch of cuteness to any ensemble by accessorising with this headband. So great for making an outfit feel dressy and more put together.

Hats are a must, particularly during summer, so why not snap up this beauty just in time for the warmer weather to arrive. It’s such a classic style and can easily worn everywhere from the beach right through to brunch.

Statement earrings are a shortcut to livening up many a look and the jade hue gives it an elegant and vibrant feel.

A beautiful clutch that has a slightly more relaxed vibe is such a great thing to have in you closet. It’s perfect for day time events, but can also turn a casual ensemble into something a little more polished.

A crisp white dress is always a good idea. And this one is such a bargain it would be criminal not to snap it up!

One of my favourite hues to work with is varying shades of pink. This blush hued number is so great for pairing with jeans to add a feminine touch.
