As a budget shopper, my two favorite places to shop are thrift stores and Amazon. The site has taken the fashion world by storm due to its affordable clothing, shoes, jewelry, and other accessories. And I’m not the only one loving it. Every time I scroll through Instagram or TikTok inevitably I end up swiping on something from Amazon which will get added to my cart. The best thing is that I end up finding great inexpensive dupes with a nice mix of high-end designers and everything in between. It’s the variety and the convenience which makes it the best option for finding something for everyone. To get you started I’ve done a round up of dresses to sandals to bikinis, and I’ve tried to focuses on the pieces which won’t break the bank! If you are looking to refresh your wardrobe there is bound to be something in here you can cart – I guarantee it.

That’s why I was so excited to come across this dress on Amazon for under $30. It comes in 18 different colors, prints, and patterns–including polka dots and flowers–and the frills at the bottom are the perfect amount of playful. Not to mention the wrap style is incredibly flattering!
Show Off Your Feisty Side With This Bikini
If you couldn’t tell by now, I am not big on blowing money on clothes. Trends come and go faster than I can keep up with, so why would you want to drop money on something that you’re probably going to throw away or donate after a year? This is especially true with bathing suits. I used to spend hundreds on suits, and thank god I dropped that habit. I’m currently obsessed with this bikini. The leopard print is feisty and fun, and the ruched bottoms are the perfect amount of cheeky–suns out buns out!

These Sunglasses are So High Quality for Such a Small Price Tag
I bought sunglasses similar to these last summer at Urban Outfitters, and they have quickly become my go-to sunglasses.

And unlike other cheap sunglasses, these are high-quality and won’t snap the minute they are thrown in your purse. What more could you ask for for $15?
This Skirt Can Be Worn With So Many Different Outfits
The 70s had some of the best fashion of all time (this is a fact, you can’t change my mind). Who doesn’t want bell-bottoms and floral everything? I know I do. I think this skirt is very reminiscent of the era, so I’m totally digging it. Pair it with a lace or floral blouse, and you will be feeling totally groovy. Or wear it with a simple tee and thigh-high boots for a more modern look.
Stay Cozy All Year Long With These Slippers
No matter what time of year, my feet are always cold. So I’m wearing slippers constantly. These slippers not only keep your toesies warm, but they’re also super soft. I’ve worn quite a few slippers that have gotten beat up after one winter season, but these are long-lasting. That means no more shelling out money on slippers every single year. And it’ll only cost you $25!
This Sweater is Great for Days When You’re Feeling a Little Extra Sweet
If I could wear sweaters year-round, I would. Unfortunately, the Arizona heat doesn’t allow this. However, with sweaters like this one, I’m very tempted to say screw it and keep my AC blasting all summer long. It’s not super thick or heavy, so you can wear it on warmer fall days or layer it under a winter coat when temps drop. If the hearts are not your style, the sweater also comes in solid colors, stripes, and argyle.

These Levi Jeans are Such a Steal
Just like Adidas, you can also score some serious deals on Levi’s on Amazon. I’ve been a Levi’s girl for years, and I probably will be until the day I die. Their jeans fit perfectly, and they have such a wide variety of styles and colors. These jeans have a skinny fit without being too tight and sit above the ankle, which is ideal when pairing with booties or sneakers. I can’t wait until it’s cool enough to grab a pair of these.
I Haven’t Taken This Sweat Set Off Since I Got It
If you’ve seen me wear this two-piece set four days in a row, mind your own business. But really, has become my WFH uniform. I wanted something comfortable but still cute so I don’t look like a total bum every day. And this did not disappoint. It’s slouchy and extremely lightweight, making it ideal for everyday wear–especially when it’s unbearably hot out.
This Crop Top is the Perfect Basic Piece
Crop tops like this one, despite being rather simple, are usually pretty expensive. I’ve never understood why considering it’s not very much fabric. But, fortunately, there’s no need to spend the money when you get this one on Amazon for less than $15.
If You Love Adventuring, Then You Need These Sandals
You may be familiar with the brands Tevas or Chacos, which means you’re probably familiar with the $50 price tag. And while I don’t have a problem spending money on something that I know will last me years, finding dupes–like these sandals–is one of my favorite hobbies. I wear these hiking, kayaking, playing in the lake, and walking on the beach. I love that you can rinse them off easily when they’re dirty, and they’re comfy as all get out.
Look Like a Serious Boss in This Blazer
Adding a blazer to an outfit is one of the easiest ways to dress up a simple look. I’ve thrifted about 20 blazers over the past couple of years, though nothing like this plaid blazer. Wear it at work for a professional, put-together look, or pair it with a graphic tee to make your typical ensemble a little more creative.
Stop Paying Hundreds for Shorts and Get These Instead
Stop spending crazy money on shorts and get these instead!

This purse may easily be one of the most fashionable purses that I have ever found on Amazon, and I can’t get enough of it. Just look how expensive it looks! It’s giving me major Louis Vuitton vibes. And while it may look small, it’s surprisingly spacious. And how cute is the included coin purse?!

Amazon has some of the best activewear I’ve ever come across. And this sports bra is a hidden gem that everyone should know about. Lulu dupe, anyone?

This Tank Top is a Warm Weather Must Have
I literally live in tank tops 24/7/ That’s one perk of living in the desert. So I’m always looking to expand my tank collection. That’s why I ordered this classic tank top. It’s a staple piece that can be worn with almost every bottom imaginable, and it comes in so many colors that you will never run out of options. I now have it in white, black, and light blue. I wouldn’t be surprised if I order one or two more soon.
This Top Flatters Every Body Type So Well
The world just seems to be getting more and more expensive–especially the fashion industry. We live in a world where brands can charge $50 for a solid-colored tee, and people will pay it! It makes 0 sense to me. Especially when it’s literally blank. This top is proof that you don’t need to drop a lot of money to get a quality shirt. It comes in so many different colors, comes in tank top styles, and the wrap waist will make you look so snatched.
These Shorts Are Not Only Adorable, But They’re Also Crazy Comfy
I’ve been working from home for a full year now, so you can imagine that my wardrobe has shifted from jeans to comfy clothes. So, of course, I absolutely love these shorts. There are no buttons to dig into you, the drawstring waist allows you to adjust them when needed, they can be dressed up or down, and you can wear them in public and still look put together.

This ruched dress is simple yet made for comfort, and with its basic silhouette, it’s a piece that will never go out of style. You can wear it out at the grocery store or glam yourself up and wear it with heels for a night on the town. Amazon user Kay reviewed it, saying, “This is a perfect dupe for the Princess Polly dress! Seriously, do not look anywhere else. The quality is fantastic. It does ride up a little bit, but you just have to adjust the drawstrings a little, and it works out just fine. If you want a looser fit, I’d recommend sizing up one from your normal size because it is tight but also flattering!”
