I always have the most fun when shopping for summer clothes. I love wearing shorter hemlines and brighter hues and embracing new trends for the season like under-the-sea-inspired jewelry and quiet-luxury sandals. There are so many great things on the market right now, and I turn to three of my go-to retailers when I’m in need of a shopping trip (which is more often than not). This summer, my social calendar is packed with fun events, weekend trips to the Hamptons, nights out in the city, and a vacation to California, and I’m still holding out hope for a few more spontaneous getaways in my future. Mango, H&M, and Zara have been high up on my list of chic but affordable retailers for years now, and season after season, they come through with exactly what my wardrobe is in need of. After a deep dive on all three sites, these 31 chic yet affordable items were everything I was looking for and more. Some items are so good I honestly wanted to keep them to myself, but I’d never gatekeep chic summer finds, especially ones at this price point.
Keep scrolling to see which H&M, Zara, and Mango items I can’t wait to wear this summer.
