If you read my articles regularly, you may well know that I have this little thing called “expensive taste, small budget” syndrome. I’ll be the first to admit I’m partial to a luxury leather Bottega Veneta purse, but my bank account suggests I better stick to Zara. Luckily, however, as a fashion market editor, I’ve become rather good at finding the most elevated and expensive-looking seasonal pieces that won’t damage your bank balance.
Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite luxe-looking (but budget-friendly!) finds for summer. Included in the mix are pretty summer dresses, designer-looking bags, and sophisticated sandals that will take your warm-weather ensembles to next-level chic. So if you’re a “champagne taste on a beer budget” type like me, then scroll below for some fancy-looking summer finds—all coming in at under $100.
