As much as we’d love to appear like we’ve been incubating in an AC-filled chamber all day, most of us have daily routines that leave us looking, well, a bit worse for wear on summer’s hottest days. To add insult to injury, most hot weather clothing isn’t exactly street primo street-style bait—flimsy tanks, flip flops, and loose cotton dresses are comfortable, but can read way too “college quad.”
That’s why we’ve rounded up 30 pieces of hot weather clothing that’s aren’t only cool, easy to wear, and crazy-stylish, but also under $100—because spending big money on summer clothes doesn’t make a lot of sense for most of us.
