With the first official day of spring just nine(!) days(!) away(!), it’s time we all get serious about our warm-weather wardrobes. Of course, that can mean different things to different people. Some might need a serious trend overhaul, while others might have that covered but need to re-up on their basics. The latter, of course, is what I seek to help with today.
In honor of the second-best season’s impending arrival (because we all know the top spot goes to fall), I’ve taken the liberty of scouring the internet for the best versions of nine essential basics, all for no more than $100. From trenches and blazers to jeans, tees, and trousers, these are the pieces no wardrobe—whether trendy, classic, or in between—is complete without. To see and shop my picks from all our favorite affordable sites including Topshop, Nordstrom, Revolve, and H&M, just keep scrolling.
