Spring Fashions to Buy or DIY
All the signs of spring are here — crocus are breaking ground, forsythia branches are in full-on yellow bloom and even the magnolia trees have started to bud. It’s time for us to shed our cold-weather layers, too. It’s hard not to get excited about the warmer weather when we look at the new spring fashions. We’re seeing lightweight fabrics, playful prints and fresh color that makes us giddy. No time to hunt the racks? No problem. We’ve curated 28 spring style essentials for you. These are the must-have accessories and body-skimming clothing that you will need in a few short weeks. And the best part? All are $100 or less. From Anthro to Zara: here are 28 spring outfit essentials under $100. And if you just love that jean skirt, but it’s not in the budget, did you know that you can DIY a jean skirt from a pair of cast-off jeans? No fooling! Check out our jean skirt hack.
If you live in colder parts, you don’t need to wait for ice to break to celebrate new spring fashion looks; you can start simply with outerwear and accessories. A sporty bomber jacket or unstructured trench will bring you from brunch to bars and everywhere in between. A leather bomber is effortlessly cool and bestows instant but serious style cred. And a good bag will take you from the current transitional weather, through all of spring, then into summer. The standout bags that caught our eye for spring are half-moon silhouettes, bright-color tote bags, long crossbodies and the return of the classic leather saddle bag. If they have flirty fringes or very simple but ample metal hardware, all the better. Here are 21 trendy new bags to keep you ahead of the fashion curve.
