5 Things From 5 Stores Under $50

Sweet editors sound off on where to shop—and what to buy—for the cheapest end-of-summer shopping spree. (And we might have bought a thing or two along the way…)

If Summer Isn't Over Until You Say It Is

The Store: Topshop

The Shopper: Chantal Strasburger, assistant editor, @chantagold

Haul thoughts: Boom—an entire new outfit for barely more than $150! What I always love about Topshop is that you can find bold, eye-catching statement pieces without paying extra for them. Rarely do both my closet and wallet end up happy, so it's a win-win all around.

If Your Basics Could Use a Refresh

The Store: Madewell

The Shopper: Caitlin Petreycik, senior fashion editor, @c_petreycik

Most Popular

Haul thoughts: A knit tank and a striped crop top feel a bit more special than my go-to white T-shirts. And, this being the end of August, my summer sandals and white sneakers have seen better days. Enter: Madewell's super-cute replacement pairs (on sale!). As for the leather bag, I'm always looking for travel pouches, and while emoji prints are everywhere, an emoticon print feels like a fun throwback.

If You're All About That Long Leg

The Store: Zara

The Shopper: Rebecca Bates, senior editor, @re.beccabates

Haul thoughts: With the exception of the little backpack, this list is all about showing off my gams. Miniskirts, a mini dress, a super-short jumpsuit—I'm feelin' a long leg at the end of summer.

If Your Fashion Motto Is "What Would a Scandinavian Do?"

The Store: H&M

The Shopper: Rebecca Deczynski, editorial assistant, @rebeccadecz

Haul thoughts: Lately I've found myself drawn to a Scandinavian aesthetic—but don't get me wrong, I still love boxy silhouettes and on-trend, off-the-shoulder tops. Thanks to H&M, I can have them both, at affordable prices. While I'm at it, I'll also throw in a few blush-colored pieces to satiate my perpetual need for pops of pink.

If Fall Can't Get Here Soon Enough

The Store: ASOS

The Shopper: Chanel Parks, assistant editor, @chanelinezp

Haul thoughts: First of all, Asos is having a 70-percent-off sale right now, so you should take advantage! And I don't know about you, but I'm gearing up my wardrobe for fall, which is why I chose five transition pieces that encourage layering. I can wear pastel socks with the metallic flats, and pull the sweater over the maxi dress for a cool street vibe. So let the leaves fall, and my outfits thrive (thanks, Asos!).
