While we may associate Walmart with inexpensive shopping, we don't always label those within-budget buys as chic lifestyle material...Big mistake, huge. After a thrilling scan of the massive retailer's online stock, we were more than delighted to find a goldmine of goods that weren't only sharply priced but were also undeniably stylish to boot. Why'd we do it? Because we like a challenge. And finding a melee diamond in a giant box is a way to flex our shopping muscles.
Ahead we've corralled a highlight collection of our beauty to fashion and home editors' top must-shop product picks. These are the surprising finds we suggest adding to cart, before word gets out and they disappear. We found everything from vintage-inspired print quilt sets by Drew Barrymore to luminous makeup palettes, an elegant small-space sofa for under $500, summery wardrobe staples, and much more.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Tiered Ruffle Bell Cuff Dress
Walmart's TEXTILE line is a serious hidden gem, with wear-all-the-time separates that carry whiffs of minimal, Scandinavian style and details that feel luxurious and contemporary. This breezy boho dress feels like it could have come from a much pricier retailer.

Flower Shimmer & Shade Eyeshadow Palette
A neutral eyeshadow palette will never go out of style, and Flower Beauty’s version is one of the best Walmart finds, bar none. The powders are pigmented, silky, and last just as long as the pricey stuff.

Straw Crossbody Bag
Nothing says summer like a straw bag, and we're so glad that the canteen silhouette is still very much on-trend. This roomy raffia cross-body is small enough to sling across your shoulder but roomy enough to still accommodate books, sunscreen, and your favorite shades.

Straw Visor 3-Pack
We love sunhats as much at the next person, but they don't always accommodate ponytails. This summer, we're opting for chic visors instead — and we don't have to choose from the three on-trend colorways offered in this multi-pack.

Circular Velvet Floor Pillow
Channel carefree style this season with a plush oversized floor pillow that doubles as a bohemian seating solution. One reviewer gushes: "This floor pillow is absolutely adorable! It's the perfect size to throw in the corner and use as an extra seat when guests come over. The velvet is super soft and the blush pink color looks great with the rest of my decor. It's actually a little bigger than it seems in the picture - thick enough to provide lots of cushion for someone sitting on it. Overall, great value - I wish it came in more colors!"

These shiny ball studs are one of those everyday pieces of jewelry that you'll find yourself wearing all the time — and we'll never say no to a pair of 14K gold earring for less than $30.

Deep Conditioning Hair Mask
Take care of your summertime strands with a deep conditioning mask made completely from an intensive sulfate, silicone, and paraben-free formula that reviewers adore: "My favorite!! Have repurchased many times. Leaves your hair nicely conditioned and looking amazing after just ONE use. I use it once or twice a week, depending on how dry my hair is feeling. I cannot stress this enough, you NEED IT."

Relaxed Vintage Patchwork Jeans

Small-Space Sectional Sofa
This compact sectional features stylish contrast-welting details with smooth walnut-finished legs and a sweet under $500 price tag — customers coo: "Great $500 apartment couch! Just received today...was so easy to put together! No screws etc, just snapping in and I put together by myself. It comes in one big long box with 6 pieces plus the cushions and legs. I ordered the grey, it is darker than in the walmart picture, which I was glad about. The chaise does not attach so you can move to either side. I have been sitting on it and it does not move. Works perfect in my studio apt!"

Sun Bum Sunscreen Face Stick
This top rated and cruelty-free sunscreen stick is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes for easy summer skin protection on-the-go. Reviewers gush: "I've used this product, personally, for probably over 6 years. I work on the beach at periods of time and this is the only product all of my campers at my snorkel camps/surf camps, will let me and actually line up to put on their face. There is not burning, they can't get enough of the smell! They're kinda hilarious about it. Thank you sun bum for making it easy to protect my campers from Florida UV."
