It's officially summer - cue the striped sundresses, must have one-pieces, colorful sandals and everything white! While you'd love to have it all, if you're like us, you're on a budget. So, for all the fashionistas out there who love a good deal, here’s how to build a summer wardrobe for $100- or less!
A White T-Shirt
A white tee is a must for any wardrobe! Not only does it practically match with everything, but it can also look chic when paired with a simple pair of jeans. Don’t bother dishing out big bucks for a casual top. We all know those armpit stains that occur instantly after a month’s wear! Instead, purchase a comfortable t-shirt that’s sure to look stylish without breaking the bank.
