As all the savviest modern shoppers know, Amazon has, over the past couple of years, become a treasure trove brimming with unique, affordably priced clothing you can’t get anywhere else. Sure, scouring the site can take a bit of time and effort, but if you have the patience, you’re guaranteed to stumble upon plenty of hidden gems from mainstream and indie designers alike. Case in point? These cheap clothes on Amazon that are actually super stylish. Some of them are timeless, others are on-trend, but what they all have in common is that they’re highly rated by shoppers (or come recommended by our very own editors), and cost less than $40.

Whether your aesthetic skews casual, classic, or trending to a T, you’ll find something (or, more likely, several things) that’ll fit seamlessly into your wardrobe — such is the beauty of Amazon, with its seemingly limitless and ever-replenishing stores of styles. From essential layering pieces to statement-making sun dresses to one-and-done jumpsuits, our team has done the work for you and surfaced the pieces that deserve a spot in any well-curated modern wardrobe.

Scroll on to shop the styles our shopping editors are currently lusting over — and which only seem expensive.


This Essential Racerback Tank That’s Worth Buying In Multiples

These cropped racerback tanks are so on-trend right now — influencers are pairing them with everything from sweats to trousers to oversized blazers — but it’s hard to imagine them ever going out of style. Comfy, versatile, and oh-so cheap, they’re definitely worth buying in multiples (black and white are essential, but brown, beige, and army green are all just as versatile).

A Cute, Tie-Front Sundress That’s Sold In Dozens Of Unique Prints

It’s sold in several neutral colors, but it also comes in few cool prints, like leopard and watercolor (both of which feel very on-trend).

A Cute Cropped Tank You’ll Wear For More Than Just Working Out

This is technically a workout tank, but there’s no reason why you can’t wear it outside the gym, too.

This Stunning Bodysuit With A Plunging Neckline

A best-of-both-worlds kind of piece, this combines the Regencycore romance of a puff-sleeved blouse with the comfort and convenience of a bodysuit (which means it tucks beautifully into any bottoms you pair with it).

  • Available sizes: X-Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 11

  • Available colors: 40


A Staple Racerback Tank Made Of A Substantial, Sweater-Like Material

A pronounced cutaway silhouette and snug fit sets this racerback tank apart from the countless other tank tops in your wardrobe. Plus, it’s made of a sumptuous yet breathable knit material, so it reads more upscale than your typical cotton or ribbed tops.

This Sweet Little Mini Dress That Can Be Dressed Up Or Down

If you still can’t get enough of the nap dress trend (we can’t either), you’ll love this mini dress. The smocked bodice, sweetheart neckline, tiered hem, and ruffled cap sleeves harken to the nap dress’ prairie-inspired roots, but that adorable mini hemline is a departure from the style’s usual maxi or midi fits. However you classify it, there’s no denying how many compliments you’ll get on this sweet dress.

  • Available sizes: X-Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 19


This Office-Friendly Mermaid Skirt With A Retro-Chic Feel
