With the warm, quintessentially L.A. summer still upon us here in Southern California, there’s no doubt that I’ll be finding my way to a few more barbecues before the summer comes to an end. With some days at the park on the horizon, check out a few outfit options – for all less than $100!

 

A playful, polka-dot dress becomes the perfect alternative to the go-to standard outfit of a t-shirt and denim cutoffs. Red canvas sneakers are fun yet practical, while a cross-body bag (complete with a gilded weave) leave your hands free to grub!

Clockwise from top left: Forever 21 Pleated Polka Dot Dress – $19.80, ASOS Park Lane Leather Across Body Bag – $33.14 (On sale), Need Supply Co. Annie in Black – $18.00, Urban Outfitters Canvas Plimsoll Sneaker – $18.00

TOTAL = $88.94

 

Just as comfortable, but more stylish than sweatpants, harem pants are an easy alternative to jeans. Pair them with a light, flirtatious tank and sandals to add an air of femininity to these bottoms. Make sure to keep the pants relatively fitted – you don’t want to get mistaken as an MC Hammer look-a-like!

Clockwise from top left: Forever 21 Rhinestoned Braided Ring Set – $4.80, Charlotte Russe Coral Stripe Fringe Scarf – $9.50, Urban Outfitters Kimchi Blue Lovely Leaves Sandal – $19.99, Tobi Jasmine Harem pants – $42; Center: Forever 21 Sheer Embroidered High-Low Cami – $17.80

TOTAL = $94.09

 

It’s the fairytale story of boy meets girl, in clothing form.  Pair an oversized sweater with floral cutoffs for a fun take on the typical hoodie and denim shorts.

Clockwise from top left: Forever 21 Interlinked bangles – $4.80, Foreign Exchange Grey Over-sized Sweater Top – $37.00, Old NavyDouble-strap Buckle Sandals – $14.97 (On sale), Forever 21 Round Sunglasses – $5.80; Center: Delia’s White Floral Printed Short - $29.50

TOTAL = $97.09

 

There’s a reason why jeans and a tank is a go-to outfit – it works!  Gilded accessories keep the denim and tank combo from becoming too expected.

Clockwise from top left: Zara Ethnic Vamp Shoe – $29.99 (on sale), Nasty Gal Button Up Tank – $9.00, Brandy Melville Hammer gold ring – $3.00, Brandy Melville Open green studs bangle – $6.00, Forever 21 Etched Bias Stripes Bracelet – $5.80, H&M Skinny Low Jeans – $9.00, Forever 21 Solid Bracelet set – $3.99, H&M Bag – $24.95

TOTAL = $91.73

 

Dresses are simple, “all-in-one” outfits; they act as a canvas, letting you put your own spin on the garment. For instance, pair a light scarf with a shift dress for some added drama.

Clockwise from top left: ASOS Figaro Leather Flat Sandals w/Color Block – $23.20, Forever 21 Box Pleated Shift Dress – $24.80, ASOS Snake Bar Purse – $13.26, Gap Bordered dot scarf – $34.95
