A new outfit can change everything. It can convey a mood, boost confidence, highlight a hidden asset, and has the power to make the wearer feel like an entirely new person. But the one thing a new outfit shouldn't do? Break the bank. Don't get us wrong, we're all for investing in quality pieces you'll wear again and again, but we also know what it's like to want to buy a new outfit without going broke. So what's a babe on a budget to do? We thought you'd never ask. Here are three outfit ideas under $100--just add your favorite accessories and go.
This white romper by Vagabond is exclusive to VDV, and a serious style steal. In a lightweight fabrication that's perfect for summer, this baby's got a front wrap V neckline, plunging back and flounce shorts with super sweet ruffle trim. We love balancing out all that sweetness with round, retro shades and a badass leather belt (two items almost guaranteed to already be in your closet). And at $51, you may as well get it in black too.
Chances are you already own a few LBDs, but what about an LBTD? For those who don't know, that's a little black t-shirt dress, and this one by Mate The Label ($74) is worth adding to your collection (there's also a striped version and a sleeveless version). Wear it all on its own for a simpler look or dress it up with a Western-inspired belt and a printed handkerchief like this one by Amuse Society ($18).
A little pink can go a long way, as is evidenced by these Short Story Shorts ($35) from Van de Vort's in-house brand, Vagabond. A stretchy smocked waistband and lightweight fabrication make them easy to wear and pair with just about anything. We especially love them with the Tyra Top ($40)--the plunging cutout neckline balances those ruffles out perfectly. Throw on some reflective sunnies a you're good to go!
