9 Cheap Summer Basics That Are Extremely Versatile

Although it might not feel like it due to the circumstances surrounding coronavirus, summer and all the cute clothing that comes along with it is right around the corner. If you've been keeping up with any of my articles throughout this pandemic, you know that I am taking a stance of optimism and complete hopefulness as it relates to this crisis. That includes my continuation of all sartorial content, including what clothing I am considering buying for summer—whether I will be spending it at the beach or in my home. Since budgeting is definitely a priority for me at this time, I wanted to curate a list of summer basics that anyone can score on the cheap.

The best thing about basics is that they are versatile pretty much by definition. So buying basics on the cheap means you really are getting the most for your money. Including tank tops starting at just $8 and stunning summer dresses you can wear with anything, the below assortment of summertime basics are truly the best and are honestly getting me excited for outdoor days ahead, whenever that may be.

Summer without tank tops would be like winter without a coat. It just doesn't make sense. Luckily, since this will probably be one of your most-worn basic of the bunch, they are also the most affordable. 

Whether you're quickly stepping outside to run errands (whatever those may be right now) or need a pair of shoes to walk around your backyard in (let's hope our circumstances change soon), an affordable pair of slides that still look polished will be beneficial time and time again. 

If you ask me, the flowier the midi dress, the better. This way, no matter what the temperature, you won't be constricted by the garment on your back. This dress style also doubles as a great swimsuit coverup. 

Jean shorts are basically the leggings of summer… just not as comfortable (you get the idea). No matter which length you prefer, this summertime basic is one you can get on the cheap, and the selection below proves it. 

Hot summertime tip: Buy a black one-piece that you love and wear it not only as a swimsuit, but also as a bodysuit with all of your jeans, skirts, and more. 

In case you find yourself itching for footwear that's a tad more formal-feeling, a simple strappy heeled sandal will do just the trick. From block heels to kitten, this shoe style will be another major go-to.

If you're anything like me, you lose sunglasses left and right. This means buying cheap pairs is probably your best bet. Here are some of my favorites right now: 

My fingers are crossed so hard that we will be able to go to the beach at some point this summer, and if that is the case, a large woven tote bag is in order. This way, you'll be able to tote all of your beach and picnic goodies (again, fingers crossed) in style.

Last but not least is a personal favorite summertime basic of mine: the oversize button-down. I usually wear these untucked with my jorts or open over a swimsuit, and I think you should too.

I Never Spend More Than $30 on These Fashion-Girl Staples—Here's How

Don't get me wrong. I love splurging on a specialty item time and again, but there are selected few fashion-girl favorites that I just can't get myself to throw down for. When it comes to things like tailoring and leather, my budget is usually a lot larger than it is when I'm talking about any of the items listed below. Now, just because these items are clearly more "basic" than a showy designer piece, that doesn't make them any less important or valuable. 

Look at any influential fashion girl in the industry, and I can guarantee that she uses a combination of the items below as the building blocks for a stunning look. So maybe those girls don't head to Amazon for their fundamental wardrobe basics, but I sure do. Ahead, follow along as I walk you through the sartorial staples I refuse to pay more than $30 for. And in case you didn't catch my mini spoiler up there, the way I can score these items for cheap is Amazon. Yes, this is about to be a major Amazon haul, but it's one that will leave your jaw dropped at how much money you could have been saving if you only did a little more digging on the site. 

With a basic as simple as a white tank, there's no need to spend more than $30. Thanks to classic brands like Hanes and Fruit of the Loom, you can find all the best white tank tops and more on Amazon.

Whether you're looking to buy your first chain necklace or have found yourself addicted to the jewelry trend and just can't get enough, Amazon has got you covered. From chunky to delicate versions, the selection here will have you in awe.

Leggings are one of the most beloved items in a fashion girl's closet, and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. Instead of splurging on another pair, err on the cheap side and buy one of the below pairs instead. 

Oversize button-downs are life. Wear them over a swimsuit as a cover-up, tucked into jeans, or untucked with leggings and little heels and you'll find yourself feeling polished and cool every time. 

Save your swimsuit splurging for something statement-making and fun. But when it comes to the staples, head to Amazon. 

I personally am always tempted to buy the designer version of something basic, especially sweatpants, but these days, I've been hunting on Amazon first, and let me tell you, I've been saving a ton.

Every fashion girl needs to have a well-stocked selection of seamless underwear. Unless you're into a visible panty line (more power to you if you are), having an assortment of this lingerie staple will ensure you never run into wardrobe malfunctions again. 

Last but not least, crew socks. This current trend started on Instagram and hasn't slowed its roll since last month.
