    32 Things Under $50 That’ll Bring A Tear To Any Style Enthusiast’s Eye

    Pass us the tissues, because we're saying "yes" to the dress(es), jewelry, accessories, and skirts in this list.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A truly adorable pair of bike shorts featuring a crossover hem that won't roll down when you're running, chillin', or Sunday brunchin'. We foresee *a lot* of people dropping into your comments asking "where are these from?"

    Promising review: "Loveeeee these biker shorts! True to size, squat proof, and very stretchy. I plan to wear them for every workout and all summer fun." —Customer

    Get them from Aerie for $20.97 (originally $34.95; available in sizes XXS–XXL and two colors).

    2. A faux alligator print handbag that I literally gasped at the moment I laid eyes on it. It's structured, chic (can also be worn as a cross-body), and does not look like it was under $30!

    P.S. The Wild Fable dress that I'm wearing is also from the same shopping trip!

    Get it from Target for $25 (available in two colors).

    3. A cut out ribbed bodysuit serving up major I just attended NYFW vibes. And even if you didn't, this is the type of look that will make your sidewalk feel like your very own runway.

    Nasty Gal

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $12.80 (originally $32, available in sizes 14–20 and two colors). 

    4. A Free People cutoff denim mini ready to be paired with fall's favorite shoe: Boots. We're talking OTK, ankle-length, calf height... I could go on, but I think there's better use of your time, like carting this bb.

    Nordstrom Rack

    Get it from Nordstrom Rack for $44.97 (originally $78; available in sizes 24–31).

    5. A marbled satin skirt that has bottomless brunch written all over it. I foresee French toast or some chocolate chip pancakes looking (and tasting) delish with this beauty.

    Promising review: "Beautiful piece from material to the design!" —Etsy Customer

    Get it from Nordstrom for $34.80 (originally $58 available in sizes 1X–3X and two colors).

    8. A wildly fun printed pair of mismatched bandana socks just waiting to peek out of loafers, sneakers, and booties. We suggest pairing these with a monochromatic 'fit that'll make your OOTD really pop.

    Lisa Say Gah

    This woman-owned biz has been gaining an abundance of fame over Instagram, and for good reason. Think: funky, retro-inspired prints and fashion forward silhouettes in apparel, accessories, and shoes. Plus, they work with super-talented female designers and produce sustainable and ethically sourced clothing. I mean, doesn't all of that just make you want to say, Gah?!

    Get it from Lisa Says Gah for $12.16 (originally $15.20).

    9. A satin dress centered around what I imagine is like a fairy tale for those who have wanderlust for Paris. Because the second you slip this on, you might have the urge to say "Au revoir!" to all the dresses that came before it.

    11. A totally cute lil' 16-karat gold-plated ring capable of bringing a smile to each and every outfit you pair it with. And because it's adjustable and of "excellent quality" as some reviewers mention, accessorizing it with your daily cup of coffee could quite easily turn you into a morning person.

    Get them from Madewell for $39.50 (available in sizes 5–11).

    Get it from Lulu's for $28.

    16. A sleek fitted romper created with what I suspect is an '80s Jane Fonda workout video in mind. We could all use a little Jane-spo in our closets — especially when it means one piece can work as both a pair of shorts *and* a top all at the same time.

    Promising review: "I bought the dress in ivory and it’s a perfect dress. I'd say it’s true to size or even a little snug. The dress is perfect for the fall and can be worn casual or with boots. Since it has also wool, the material itches me sightly but once I wear a shirt under it it shouldn’t bother me anymore. Due to the wool the dress will keep me warm in the winter also. Can’t wait it dress it up with boots!" —Target Customer

    Get it from Target for $29.99 (available in sizes XS–4X and four colors).
