Spring is just around the corner. The world will soon be full of fresh vegetation, baby animals, and cool fashion trends for spring.
Women get a bad reputation when it comes to clothes and shopping. There’s a stereotype that women spend far too much on clothes that they’ll wear once.
To some extent this is true. About 50% of women say that they don’t use 25% of their wardrobe. Seventy-three percent of women say they update 25% of their closets every three months.
Luckily, there’s no need to spend tons of money on fashion if you know how to shop thriftily. These cool fashion trends will help you stay up-to-date without breaking the bank.
This spring, original denim will be in. Clothes hoarders and thrift shopper rejoice.
The original denim trend means we’ll see more jean jackets and original cut denim pants out and about. These pieces pair perfectly with other trendy spring items like floral blouses and romantic, flowy dresses.
If you’ve held onto your clothes from the 90s, see if you have any old denim pieces in there. You can also ask friends and family if they have any old pieces you could take off their hands.
Trench coats will always be a spring trend as the temperatures rise and the rainy season starts.
This season, you’ll notice updated silhouettes as well as traditional cuts. One new take on a trench that we love is one with bell sleeves from Mango.
Outerwear is something we recommend splurging on for a better quality coat that will last you a bit longer. This is especially the case for a piece that will continuously come back into style each year.
Florals will pretty much always be a spring trend. After wearing blacks and greys all winter, we can’t wait to don pretty pastels that reflect the new flowers blooming around us.
You don’t have to buy these pieces new. Check out which floral pieces you have from last season that are still in good shape.
Consignment shops are also a great place to check at the beginning of spring. In many cases, you can get items from your favorite labels at a deep discount.
This spring, you’ll notice many tops with sheer top layers and sheer sleeves. Designers love the chance to play with delicate details, light, and transparency.
This trend has filtered its way down to the fast fashion houses where you can sheer pieces for little money. The drawback is that these pieces won’t last for a long time.
From fast fashion to plus size clothing, you’ll love the chance to play with different sheer pieces this spring.
Lavender is an underrated pastel. Thank goodness you’ll see tons of it this spring.
You’ll notice lavender sweaters, dresses, accessories, and shoes all featuring lavender. We recommend sticking with one apparel piece and one accessory to prevent you from ending up with a closet full of lavender.
