22 Feel-Good Fashion Items We're Shopping Now to Bring Some Joy

This April, we vow to shop fashion items that make us happy and point our mood in the right direction. We're taking into account labels that have committed to donating a portion of their proceeds to charities in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. We're also constantly browsing some of our favorite small brands in an effort to support them and their hardworking teams during this economic crisis. This is what we mean when we tell you to shop thoughtfully. While we certainly haven't limited our imagination when it comes to dreaming about future splurges, we're taking a step back and asking ourselves, "What clothes won't just make me look good but also feel good?"
From Soludos's bright new clothing line to Alice + Olivia's rainbow pullovers and some of Cult Gaia's incredible jewelry that could double as artwork, we've rounded up the items that we know we're going to treasure forever. That's not just because these looks are beautiful but because they mark a specific moment in our lives, when we all want to wear pieces that are uplifting and personal. Read on to see how we're shopping, and you'll find that — spoiler alert! — everything we included in this post is under $150. Yes, your wallet is smiling, too.
