Sometimes, you spot a jacket or pair of shoes you simply have to have, no matter the price tag. And that’s great; typically, these are pieces that will last you years (or even decades) to come. However, balance is key when building out a well-rounded wardrobe. To stay within budget, it’s important to temper those big-ticket purchases with pieces on the more affordable end of the spectrum. Luckily, finding super-stylish clothes, shoes, and accessories doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money. In fact, just $35 is all you need to look chic — and these pieces from Amazon prove it.

If the idea of shopping for clothes on Amazon feels odd, don't rule it out just yet. Not only does the online retailer have a near-endless array of options from mainstream labels and smaller-scale artisans alike, but firsthand reviews from shoppers like yourself provide invaluable insight on how an item will actually look, fit, and feel. Plus, if you’re a Prime member, many pieces can be delivered to your doorstep in just a day or two. And even better, there's the handy Prime Wardrobe feature, which allows you to test out eligible items for a week before committing to purchasing them. You only pay for what you keep, and returns are free.

Ahead, you'll find 34 of the chicest fashion pieces on Amazon right now. The items on this list range from cozy knit basics to workwear staples to bags, shoes, jewelry, and more. They do all have one thing in common, though: they’re all pieces that look super luxe, but actually ring in at just $35 or less. So go ahead and treat yourself to a few new looks — after all, sticking to a budget doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun.
