Editors' Under-$100 Fashion Picks: June
"Come summer I tend to trade my heels-and-vintage denim uniform for flat sandals and polished trousers.The menswear-inspired handkerchief print and loose silhouette of this style will seamlessly blend into my wardrobe without breaking the bank."
— Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
“Can't go wrong with a white blouse for summer and this cropped silhouette is serving up some cool, French-girl vibes.”
—Leah Benzie, Social Media Editor
“This is the cutest summer bag that goes with just about any outfit.”
—Christian David, Art Director
Dôen Phoebe Basket, $38
“White shoes continue to be a decidedly fresh trend for summer. These block-heel mules are a cool alternative to open-toe styles for work, worn with everything from denim to skirts to dresses (and my favorite hack for concealing a chipped pedicure).”
—Laura Lajiness, Fashion Editor
"I'm trying to branch out from wearing jeans to work every day (especially as the temps rise), and these lightweight pants are just what I need. I'll wear them from the office to dinner dates—plus they have pompoms on the hem. Need I say more?"
—Rebecca Iloulian, Marketing Manager
"My strategy lately has been all about dressing up underwhelming outfit choices with a standout pair of earrings. The bigger and brighter, the better—especially when paired with a simple slip dress or T-shirt and jeans."
—Stephanie Montes, Beauty Director
"Whether I'll find the time to take a true vacation this summer or not, this dress will make me feel like I'm out of office. It feels at once classic and on-trend, so for $60, I'm sold."
—Lauren Black, Content Analyst
“These block-heel shoes are great for work— they're the perfect amount of dressy, and the low-heel makes running around the office bearable.”
—Aidan Macaluso, Associate Manager, Social Media
“This summer I'm trying to incorporate more hair accessories to play around with my overall look. Cult Gaia has a selection of "turbands" that are perfect for everywhere from the office to the beach. Plus, they're super cute."
—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor
"I'm always seeking cool, interesting tops I can wear to elevate jeans, which I pretty much wear everyday. This shoulder-baring, asymmetrical top is both romantic and elegant and the right amount of dressy."
—Amy Lee, Fashion Editor
“Living for all things woven for summer. This is the perfect beach accessory I can't wait to use all season long.”
—Alyson Fishbein, Senior Manager, Social Media
"I feel like I need this beret right know... I don't know why, but I think it'll be a fun brunch accessory."
—Erin Nicole, Senior Lifestyle Editor
Lisa Says Gah Beret, $38
“I’m currently obsessed with cute summer slides that can easily transition from brunch with the girls to a dinner date—bonus points if they’re easy on the soles."
—Samantha McDonald, News Editor
“Though these bad boys might be nearing the $100 tipping point, their unique oblong shape and surprisingly feather-light weight make them entirely worth the price tag."
—Kristin Mahler, Graphic Designer
