Thrifty Summer Spendings

The best summer clothes on a budget

If you’re looking for an adorable summer dress that won’t break the bank, I highly recommend checking out the cute black and white striped dress on Edikted. It’s not only stylish and perfect for the warm weather, but it’s also incredibly affordable, making it a great addition to your summer wardrobe without breaking the bank. 

With warm weather and swim season quickly approaching, this Aerie striped bikini is a perfect dupe for the popular Triangl swimwear. Their striped bikini not only captures the same trendy aesthetic as Triangl, but also comes at a fraction of the price, making it a perfect choice for budget-conscious fashionistas. 

Although I am biased because I personally own this dress, this pink floral dress from Princess Polly is perfect for a summer picnic or garden party. The material is light and comfortable, making it wearable on those hot Texas summer days. 

If you’re looking for a cute athletic dress perfect for tennis or pickle ball during the summer, I recommend checking out the dupe for the Free People athletic dress. It offers the same stylish design and functionality at a more affordable price, making it a great option for those who want to look good while staying active during the summer.

Although I don’t necessarily believe in the “no white after Labor Day rule,” since summer is approaching, this is the perfect time to buy a cheap and cute pair of white jeans. White jeans are perfect for summer because they’re light, fresh and can be dressed up or dressed down. Plus, they’re very versatile and can be worn with almost anything.
