Congratulations, everyone! We made it to summer 2022! Trips have been planned and flights have been purchased, which means my wallet has taken a hit. But if you know me, you know that I love a challenge, and I’ve been determined to find high-quality items with two-digit price tags this summer. So of course, when I set out on this endeavor, I immediately scoured Nordstrom’s site. Its Young Adult section is one of my best-kept secrets for affordable, on-trend options that don’t sacrifice quality. Think brands like BP, Vero Moda, and Open Edit (an editor favorite). My wish list of summer staples includes ribbed tanks, fun accessories, printed dresses, and strappy sandals. Luckily for all of us, I found everything on my list, and each item is $50 or less. (The headline doesn’t lie.) Here are 16 pieces that your wallet will thank you for.
