There might’ve been a time when we avoided “mall brands,” but in recent seasons we’ve discovered an unexpected number of pieces from said labels that’ve achieved hero status in our wardrobes—all with a modest price tag to boot. In gearing up for the sunny season ahead, we’re once again channeling our inner Cher Horowitz and taking a trip to our local shopping center (or, okay, doing as much by browsing online) and zeroing in on key on-trend pieces from wallet-friendly vendors. Here, shop our edit of spring selects—most of which ring in under $100—to buy now.

H&M Cotton Jacket, $149.
