Are you constantly scrolling through designer websites and Instagram-famous brand feeds, making millions of mental notes about the high-priced clothing you’d buy if you won the lottery? (Maybe that's just me, then.) Despite my Champagne tastes, I am well aware that I need to take my personal “hot-girl wardrobe” dreams down a more practical and affordable path. So, I turn to Amazon. With underground fashion finds and two-day Prime shipping, it has a lot to offer.

If you’re a fellow hottie on a budget, you’ll also love these smoldering, surprisingly cheap things under $40 bucks. I’ve included fashion tricks and cult beauty products, too, because little upgrades like that can go a long way towards feeling pretty damn fabulous... And confidence is really what it’s all about.


A Square-Neck Bodysuit For Romantic Bridgerton Vibes

Whether you wear this REORIA square-neck sleeveless bodysuit to brunch or bar, you’ll look snatched and ready. Constructed from a blend of nylon and spandex that molds to your frame, you’ll always stay perfectly tucked at all times — a huge plus! As for the quality: “A wonderful, buttery soft body suit, with the perfect thickness of material. Not thin and see through, but not thick and unbreathable,” one reviewer remarked. Style it with jeans or flowy midi skirt for daytime, and then go for a body-con skirt after dark.

Super comfy and stretchy, but it looks super chic for work or going out. The material is really thick and nice,” one shopper wrote. Another massive selling point? It’s machine washable — not always the case for tailored skirts.
