Cute summer clothes under $100: 9 things I’ve bought to wear this summer

We’re talking cute summer clothes under $100!

Hi, friend! Let’s chat clothing … Usually when a new season is rolling around, I do a little shopping to update what’s in my closet. And today, I’m going to share my cute summer finds. I hadn’t bought anything in a while, and this haul will take me through the next few months.

Nothing on this list of cute summer clothes is more than $100, and I’m hoping to wear all of it multiple times. Let’s get to the clothes …

And as a reminder, you can find a lot of my outfit links on this page.

These items I’ve already worn …

Halie Bow Sandal

I love a bow-detail on a slide sandal, and this one has a big bow. I liked these slides the second I put them on, because they’re comfy and flattering on the feet. I’ve worn them a couple times, and because I chose the natural/woven version, I can wear them with just about anything. Also, they’re on sale right now. And they run true to size. There are several colors to choose from, and I’m thinking I may get gold too.

Tulep Hem Romper

Love a good summer romper! I have a jumpsuit from this brand, Fraiche by J, and I absolutely love it, so I was excited to try out a shorts romper with a tulep hem from Fraiche by J. It’s light, flattering and has a cute tie belt. The tulep-style shorts make it look different from other shorts rompers too. I ordered a medium, to accommodate my height and longer torso, and it’s a nice fit. It comes in two colors, red and black. The one thing I will mention is that the little button to close up the v-neck is a very hard-to-latch button — I hope it loosens up as I wear this more often. Small point, but worth considering if that sort’ve thing would annoy you.

Villa Shorts

I bought these casual shorts in spring, and I’ve been wearing them a ton. They have a nice high waistband, pockets and wide-leg openings at the shorts part, which I like in my shorts. I have them in black, but I have a friend at the gym who has the hunter green color, and I may need to grab those too. I think these run a tid big, so I’m a small in them. I wear a small in most items from the Vuori brand. I’ve loved nearly everything I’ve bought from this brand, and I wear it all the time.

Lace Overlay Cocktail Dress

I ordered several cocktail dresses for a friend’s birthday party earlier this month, and this lace overlay dress was the least expensive one, and it was totally the winner/keeper (and the rest went back). This dress also fit the best, and I loved wearing it. It’s navy, fitted, midi length, and has some crochet-lace detailing that gives it a pop (like a flutter sleeve and a flutter skirt). I will definitely find another reason to wear this dress again this summer. I ordered a size 6 in this dress, and it’s not too tight, but just tight enough.

Perfect Fit Palazzo Twill Pants

Wide-leg red pants! Other than the bright red color, my favorite thing about these wide-leg pants is the waistband. It’s a jeans-type waistband, but it has elastic and is so comfortable. When I slid these on in a fitting room, I was instantly a fan. These pants are made from a cotton/rayon/spandex blend, and they definitely have a little stretch in them. I’ve paired them with heels and a white blouse before, and this weekend, I plan to wear them with flats and a plain-white tank. They come in two other colors. I ordered a size 4 for a great fit.

Eva Colorblock Bikini

I bought three new swimsuits last year, so I wasn’t going to get one this year. But I’ve been eyeing this particular style of suit for a while and decided to go for it. The tops and bottoms are sold separately, so technically they fall under the $100 umbrella as individual pieces. I got a medium in both the tops and bottoms. They fit well, but the bottoms are a bit cheeky, and definitely not appropriate for a more conservative pool situation. I wore this swimsuit this past weekend to a girls-only pool party, and it was perfect for that.

Three items I haven’t worn yet …

Mixed Print Ruffled Tier Dress

I’m saving this dress for the Fourth of July. It’s a shorter cotton dress with flutter sleeves and a tiered skirt. While it’s considered a “short” dress, it does come down about to my mid-thigh, and I’m about 5’8″. I love the colorful mixed patterns and how light this dress is. It will be perfect for a hot summer day. I ordered a small, and it fits just right.

Gem Slide Sandal

So I usually wear flat shoes or heeled shoes, and I rarely like a “kitten” heel, if you will. But when I saw these simple slides, I thought it may be worth considering a lower heel. These slides are flattering on my feet, they’re comfy, and I think I could dress them up or down. The price is right, they’re on sale, and these come in multiple colors. I went with the brown, because I don’t have a lot of brown shoes. I’d say they are true to size or a tiny bit big.

Peta Floral Print Dress

I love to wear floral dresses, and I’ve worn all the ones in my closet so many, many times. I knew I needed a couple new floral dresses for the summer. This one has sleeves, a puffier skirt and a belted waist too. I don’t know when I’ll wear this, but hopefully soon. I ordered a small, and it fits well, with extra room too. If you’re in between sizes, I would definitely size down.
