Best Buys Under $100

26th July, 2019

One of the great things right now is that there are plenty of great pieces to be found that don’t cost a fortune. From chain stores and their reasonably priced offerings to half yearly sales, it’s totally possible to get yourself some on trend pieces without your wallet looking a little worse for wear.

This month I’ve found some amazing accessories that can instantly elevate an outfit. These wooden hoops are currently slashed at 70 per cent off and are just the perfect addition that your spring/summer outfits need. These resin earrings come a close second. They look luxe but no one need ever know they’re currently on sale for just under $68.

If you’re looking for a few off duty pieces, snap up this cable knit jumper immediately and don’t forget these classic cropped jeans. Whilst this C&M tee is made for stylish weekend pairings with your favourite denim. Cap it off with these cat eye sunglasses and you’ve got yourself a winning look.

If pay day seems a looong way away but you’re itching for a shopping hit then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve rounded up some great buys including cute accessories to elevate a look and inexpensive occasion wear that looks expensive but in reality is less than $100.

There are some great bargains but my faves include a double breasted jacket with gold hardware that’s a little Balmain-esque in its cut and shape and a gorgeous pink Bec & Bridge midi dress that’s ideal for a wedding or other big event. And if you’re on the hunt for one of the season’s biggest must-haves, a satin skirt, the fuchsia pink Country Road number below is exactly what you’re after.

When it comes to accessories it’s all about touches of pink. Upgrade your phone case with a totally adorable Kenzo case, impress with a sleek Furla card holder or step back in time with a retro Country Road tote.
