Is your wardrobe ready for summer?! Summer is right around the corner, friends!! I am stocking up on these summer staples under $100 and preparing myself so I can spend more time outside or at the pool or tanning and less time inside shopping. These summer staples will be in heavy rotation and perfect to throw in your suitcase and head out to the beach with.
First up on the summer staples under $100 are denim cut-off shorts! They can be styled any which way and they are perfect for just about every occasion or event. Need a cover up for the pool or beach? Throw on a pair of denim cut-off shorts and a kimono. Going to a BBQ or cook out? Throw on a pair of denim cut-off shorts and a cute top. Going out to eat with some girlfriends? Throw on a pair of denim cut-off shorts with an off-the-shoulder sweater or a nicer top. The possibilities are endless so you definitely need to add a pair (or several) of denim cut-off shorts to your summer staples collection! Here are some of my favorite under $100
Next on the list is swimsuits of course! Swimsuits don’t have to be expensive. In fact, some of my favorite swimsuits only cost me around $12… And it also helps to buy multiple swimsuits in the same color so you can just mix and match the tops with the bottoms and to create new looks each time you wear it!
Summer staples are not complete without cute tops. My summer staple tops focus more on light colors (mostly white) and are of the tank top nature. It is summer after all, so why not show off your tan arms and chest right?! I always find myself grabbing white, pink, or yellow tops when it’s time for a summer happy hour or backyard BBQ.
I absolutely love wearing dresses in the summer! I feel like they keep me more cooled off than shorts and a tank top do. Maybe because the breeze can get all up in there or because it’s more loose-fitting than cut off denim shorts… Whatever the reason, I just love wearing dresses in the summer.

Of course, you’ll have to have at least one or two kimonos in your summer staples collection. I always like to wear a kimono over a swimsuit with a pair of denim cut-off shorts and wear it as a swimsuit cover-up. And if I’m going to brunch or a happy hour or something I will throw a kimono on over a tank top with cut-off shorts to make the outfit look a little fancier!
Summer shoes are definitely a must for a summer staple. Sandals, flip flops, espadrilles, wedges, etc. are all needed for the summer season. But it can be pretty hard to find some good ones under $100 these. Here are my favorite summer staple shoes under $100
And last on the summer staples under $100, but definitely not least, are the summer staple accessories! Hats, tote bags, shoulder bags, jewelry, fedoras, you name it, you need it for your summer staple collection. This year the bamboo and woven bags are having a huge moment and so are the boho fedora look. And I am all about it!!
And there you have it my little beach babes! My summer staples for under $100 list! Some items on the list are even as inexpensive as $8!! You really can’t beat that… So stock up and prepare your summer wardrobe with these super affordable staples!
