Every Monday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase that won’t take up your whole paycheck. If you’re looking for something to splurge on instead, check back every Friday for an item that’s absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity.
This time of the year can be hard, sartorially: It’s tempting to keep wearing the same sweaters, but aren’t you sick of them? Emerging brand Likely, launched by the people at Elizabeth & James, has created a line of contemporary pieces to refresh your wardrobe at affordable prices. The brand’s main goal is Instagram-ability, so all the pieces have fresh silhouettes and come in bright colors — the key ingredients for the perfect selfie. Wear this dress with a light trench coat or bodysuit now, and pair with sandals later on.
