These days, stores like Zara and H&M are winning the affordable fashion game, heralded by magazine editors and schoolgirls alike.
But don’t sleep on Old Navy – this classic brand may have been around since I was school girl myself, but they are still a consistent source of cute, wallet-friendly everyday wardrobe staples.
Take this off-the-shoulder floral dress for instance. I love all of the vibrant colors, and the slightly vintage feel of the cut. It reminds me of something Brigitte Bardot might wear on vacation (see actual image of Bardot during a visit to St. Tropez below).
Sadly, this particular dress is no longer available online, but here are 12 of my current faves that are ripe for the picking, all under $45.
