Sometimes the best remedy to a style rut is adding something new to your rotation. A bright shade of lipstick, a pair of statement earrings or a flashy piece of clothing could be the ticket to livening up your wardrobe. That said, reviving your wardrobe mid-season is not always the most practical decision, as you’re basically doling out big bucks on of-the-moment pieces you’ll be wearing for about a month or so. It’s quite the sartorial pickle, but not one without a solution.
If you are in fact looking for a quick summer upgrade and don’t want to overspend (since fall is rapidly approaching), then consider shopping an affordable, versatile trend—like florals—that will serve you well while the temps are high, but also transition nicely as the season changes.

To help you, we scoured our favorite sites for pretty, vibrant pieces awash in floral prints—all ringing in at no more than one hundred bucks. From effortless dresses you can pair with sneakers to an adorable scarf to team with your white tee and jeans, there’s a little something for everyone.
