For many parents, the days of going into the office and taking spontaneous trips on weekends might seem like a distant memory — along with having the wardrobes to match. But even though I might spend a lot more time in leggings and have less funds to work with these days, I still like to treat myself to a nice outfit here and there.

So, what’s my secret? Finding stylish pieces from Amazon that look expensive but cost way less than those you’d find at a boutique or department store. Yes, including a pair of those chic mesh flats that are one of 2023’s hottest fashion trends.

Scroll on for looks that will look expensive to the onlooker, but you’ll know what a steal they actually were.


This Waffle Knit Henley Top

Think the thermal look is just for at home? Think again. The deep V-neck alone on this long-sleeve waffle knit top is reason enough to show it off. And because it’s a pullover, you can reach for this trendy top even when you’re in a rush. Pair it with your favorite jeans and you’re all set.

  • Available sizes: X-Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 18


This One-Stop-Shop T-Shirt Dress

Other than a pair of cute flats, this T-shirt dress doesn’t need much by way of accessorizing thanks to its boatneck, tie waist, and pocket details. And it has a really luxurious look and feel — the rayon blend is so soft. Plus, this effortlessly chic number can easily transition from day to night wear.

  • Available sizes: Small — X-Large
  • Available colors: 28


This Seriously Chic Linen 2-Piece Set

Calling this linen set “expensive looking” would be a huge understatement. In fact, it looks like something you would see at an upscale boutique. Think high-waisted, wide-leg pants with pockets and a matching tank with sophisticated peplum detail. At less than $40, you might want to grab one in all your favorite colors.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 22


These Belted Palazzo Trousers

If you’re not ready to go full-on palazzo, try out these trousers that are like a slimmer version with a modestly wide leg. And because details count, you’ll be happy to know they’re made from a lightweight fabric that drapes beautifully from the pleated paper bag waistline — not to mention that they come in a variety of solid colors and fun patterns.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 23


This Buttery-Soft Mock Turtleneck

Three-quarter sleeves? Yes, please. But this top has more to fall in love with — like the no-fuss mock turtleneck collar and the buttery soft fabric that has just the right amount of stretch to give it a relaxed fit while still offering a streamlined silhouette. And it comes in a ton of color — basically one for every day of the month if you want to make a real uniform out of it.

  • Available sizes: X-Small — 3X-Large
  • Available colors: 29


This Smocked Floral Jumpsuit

This jumpsuit comes in so many beautiful floral prints, plus some must-have solids. The bottoms are wide and flowy (a.k.a. comfy), while the smocked top gives it a form-fitting silhouette that contrasts nicely with the adorable puffy short sleeves. It’s machine-washable and practically wrinkle-resistant.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 24


This Boutique Lookalike Dress

I’ve seen sundresses just like this in boutiques, and they cost a lot more than this Amazon version that will set you back less than thirty bucks. This ‘90s-inspired dress even has the same luxurious details, like a deep V-neck, spaghetti straps, and a high-quality material that’s breathable and drapes like a dream. Oh, and I can’t go without mentioning that it has pockets.

  • Available sizes: X-Small — 4X-Large
  • Available colors: 20+


These Flared Yoga Pants With A Cute Crossover Waist

Athletic pants don’t have to be basic or boring — or break the bank. And these $20 flared yoga pants ,with a sporty-chic feel, show you just how fun they can actually be. I’m talking wide flared legs and a crossover waist. But they also have all the necessary elements of a good workout pant, like a four-way stretch material that’s breathable and moisture-wicking and pockets for your keys and phone.

  • Available sizes: X-Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 20


This Affordable Lace Top For An Elevated Everyday Look

Lace has a history of being expensive, but this casual V-neck top gives you the lace look you love without the high price tag. And reviewers say the lace pattern is even prettier in person, undoubtedly adding a unique upgrade to the soft waffle knit bodice.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 36


This Casual Long Sleeve Top With A “Twist”

When I say this long-sleeve top has a “twist,” I mean a literal twist knot at the hem that gives you that tucked look without the fuss of actually tucking or twisting. The material itself has a waffle knit texture that feels incredibly soft. It comes in all your favorite neutral hues, plus a few patterns, too.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 15


This Flowy Tiered Tunic That Can Be Worn Every Season

If you love bold prints, this dress comes in a couple of kaleidoscopic options that rival expensive designer versions. But if solids or more modest prints are more your thing, this dress with flowy tiers comes in those too. Pair it with tall boots and tights for a cozy-chic cold-weather look, or pair it with strappy sandals for warmer days.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 17

Hot yoga, pilates, a run in the park — you can do all that and more in these yoga pants designed to soak up sweat and keep you looking sleek.

These Vacation-Worthy Drawstring Pants

Even if you’re not headed out on a Mediterranean getaway, these luxurious lounge pants are worthy of an “add to cart.” The wide, ankle-length legs and ruffled high waistband give them a beachy look that can be dressed up or down. One reviewer, who did indeed wear them during a trip to Italy, reported that they’re “perfect […]lightweight, and not sheer at all.”

  • Available sizes: Small — X-Large
  • Available colors: 11


This Chiffon Blouse With Ruffle Sleeves

  • Available colors: 28


This Puff-Sleeve Pullover Sweater With Vintage Vibes

This adorable sweater is giving major vintage vibes. And if you’ve ever shopped for authentic vintage threads, you know they come at a price (and maybe with a few moth holes). But this sweater gives you all the vintage details like pleated puff sleeves and a patterned knit weave without the high price (and I promise those holes are part of the design). It’s also offered in a long-sleeved design if you prefer a little extra warmth.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 26


This Faux Wrap Midi Dress With Charming Details

This tiered midi dress doesn’t just look great, it’s also pretty practical, thanks to the faux wrap elasticized waistband that makes it comfortable, easy to slip on, and assures that it won’t go unraveling on you mid-outing.

This Earthy-Chic Blouse Offered In Short Or Long Sleeves

Long-sleeve, short-sleeve, solid, or print — whatever you choose, this blouse is sure to please with its high-end look and feel. It has an earthy-chic vibe with fluttered cap sleeves and a drawstring V-neck, and the material is soft and lightweight (read: breathable). The practical length is ideal for tucking it into your favorite bottoms but it looks great worn loose as well. Looking for extra coverage? There are dreamy long-sleeved options in the listing as well.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 47


This Faux Button-Up Dress With Pockets

The buttons on this dress have a chic tortoiseshell pattern that seriously amp up its vibe. But the fact that they’re faux buttons means a pristine look with no messy gaps. That, plus the soft rayon material with a beautiful drape, makes this dress a must-have.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large

This Best-Selling Maxi Available In Tons Of Colors

This maxi dress looks like it was plucked right out of a trendy beachside boutique. That could be the reason it has a 4.3-star rating after nearly 25,000 reviews, but it’s also the buttery-soft fabric, rounded split hem that allows for easy movement, and the pockets.

  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
  • Available colors: 46


This Casual Tee With A Square Neck

If you’re like one reviewer who said they like their “[…] shirts a little loose but not completely ‘tunic-y,’” you’re probably going to love this longer T-shirt that still offers shape.

This Pretty Midi With Tiny Pleats

This pretty midi has delicate details that earn it a place among other high-end skirts (even though it’s secretly affordable). I’m referring to the ultra-thin pleats that give it graceful movement, the ruffled elastic waist for all-day comfort, and the distinct mini polka dot pattern. But if polka dots aren’t your thing, there are other patterns to choose from, including classic plaid that’s perfect for holiday parties.

  • Available colors: 31


This Roomy Faux Leather Tote That Looks Way More Expensive Than It Is

There are all kinds of leather textures out there but (IMO) the most elegant is the embossed pebble texture, like the one you see covering the outside of this stunning oversized tote bag with practical pockets. Given that it has a genuine appearance and feel, it’s hard to tell that it’s actually made with animal-friendly vegan material — yes, including that trendy tassel charm.

The tulip sleeves on this chiffon blouse are everything. But I can’t ignore the other beautiful details on this blouse that make it look luxurious — like the smooth, drapey fabric and chic pleat that’s both on the front and back.
