Under $100: Best buys for March

Our editors share the items they are coveting this March—and they're all under $100.

This March we're thinking about transitional pieces and spring trends we can pick up for less than $100.

Statement earrings

Move aside rhinestones, step off hoops, peace out power studs, there's a new statement earring in town: tassel earrings. These shoulder dusters are graphically ideal; long, playful and luxe looking. The best part, they are extremely light for a statement earring, so there’s no risk of getting earlobe fatigue midday. How do I know? I have these exact earrings in four other colours, but red will be mine!  - Julia McEwen, fashion & beauty director

Earrings with tassels, $15, hm.com/ca.

Prairie blouse

You’re going to need to pick up a prairie- or folksy-inspired blouse for summer. This one comes in a bright hue and can easily be dressed up or down. But the best part is the breezy silhouette is super flattering and still manages to look polished and fun. - Alexandra Donaldson, contributing editor

Embroidered top, $75, gapcanada.ca.

Track pants

If wearing track pants outside of my house is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Maybe I’m overly influenced by 90’s RB icons, but I think dressing up these classic Adidas jogging pants with a pair of heels and wearing them out to dinner is impossibly cool. Noelle Gaulthier, style intern

Adidas Supergirl track pant, $75, aritzia.com.

A feel-good collaboration

On March 8th J.Crew launched a collaboration with Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum. The collab includes t-shirts (for the whole family) with hand painted whales by the brand’s head of women’s design, Somsack Sikhounmuong. However, Sikhounmuong also designed and sketched a cute tote and this adorable whale bandana. Fifty percent of the retail price will be donated to the Royal Ontario Museum's Blue Whale project. Its research will contribute to global understanding and conservation of this threatened species. - JM

J.Crew for the Royal Ontario Museum whale bandana, $16.50, jcrew.com.

Go-to spring and summer dress

Pick up this summer dress and watch it become your go-to piece. You’ll wear it to weddings (with pumps), to work (with a blazer) and to brunch (over a t-shirt). - AD

Chiffon maxi dress, $50, hm.com/ca.

The wear-everywhere necklace

Each spring I tend to pick a necklace and wear it pretty much every day. This year, I have my eye on this (Canadian) Jenny Bird pick for its simplicity—but also its unique design. - AD

Arc pendant, $65, jenny-bird.ca.

All-in-one beauty pick

Any mom or busy woman (who isn’t busy, really?!) can appreciate a product that can do a few things. This coconut oil-based, multitasking and organic cream can be used on both lips and cheeks. The formula hydrates and protects while creating a natural finish. I’m keen on this vivid red with a hint of poppy called Beloved.  - JM

null

RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Beloved, $45, sephora.com.

Sunshine sunnies 

Affordable and a guarantee that no one else has it? I’m mass-ordering sunglasses from this Australian brand just in time for spring. If there’s anyone with authority on how to protect yourself from the sun's rays while staying stylish, I’m trusting the Aussies. - NG 

null

Luna Tuscan yellow sunglasses, $45, luna.com.au.

A trendy midi skirt

Midi skirts are always in style, but this spring I'll be picking up an option that touches on a few of spring's big trends: micro pleats and tiers are both high up on the list, but you can always opt for ruffles or saturated colours. - AD

null

Midi skirt, $76, asos.com.

Printed perfection

Pineapple prints overtook spring last year, but I have my money on the cactus motif for winning 2017. I adore this chic and playful frock with cut out shoulder and a variety of adorable watercolour illustrated potted cacti. - JM

Dress, $79, simons.ca.

Unexpected colour

I’ve been spotting lavender highlighter everywhere at the moment—and I’m so on board. Lately, I’ve been all about a fresh face with an emphasis on healthy, glowing skin. The holographic look adds a bit of spontaneity while still keeping it simple. - NG 

null

Milk Makeup Holographic stick, $35, sephora.com.

Daring bodysuit

This sheer bodysuit is giving me Bella-Hadid-wandering-NYC vibes—it turns out she’s been spotting wearing it. If wearing it sheer with only a bra underneath isn't for you, try it with a form-fitting black camisole, for just as much impact. - NG   

null

Danielle Guizio Sheer turtleneck bodysuit, $63, danielleguiziony.com.

A natural mascara option

It's pretty pricey for a mascara option, but I'll be re-stocking this green beauty pick for the spring—it's my go-to mascara. Not only is it all-natural, but it provides lasting colour without smudging—but manages to impact a natural your-lashes-but-better look. - AD

Lengthening mascara, $36, beautycounter.com.
