Maybe you're saving for a vacation, or maybe (like me) you've got a bunch of weddings, showers, and bachelorette parties coming up that will require lots of cash. Whatever the reason, if you don't have much money to spend on your spring wardrobe, fear not. The key to looking fabulous on a budget this spring is to update your existing wardrobe with a handful of items that are stylish, of-the-moment, and versatile enough that they'll get lots of use.
One store where you'll find lots of easy fashion inspiration? Forever 21, the mecca of trendy but affordable clothing and accessories. You may not love every item there (some of it can be a bit young, I admit) but you've got to love a store where you can pick up a cute, head-to-toe new outfit without shelling out more than 50 bucks. Pretty amazing!
Here my favorite Forever 21 picks to update your spring look (pictured, from left to right):
The dainty Scratch Print Dress ($22.80) in blue and cream is the perfect dress to slip into for work or the weekend; just add a cardigan and pretty ballet flats and you're set.
For a sporty look, the Striped Knit Cardigan ($19.80) is suitable everywhere from the office to the beach this summer; it's the perfect coverup for a chilly night.
A patterned scarf is the simplest way to add freshness to any outfit. This lemon yellow Striped Woven Scarf ($5.50) is a bright and sunny choice.
Be eco-friendly and stylish by lugging your groceries or gym clothes in a cute patterned Tote Bag ($1.50).
A comfy, simple skirt will work with so many tops you already own. I love the sweetness of this Color-Tipped Floral Print Skirt ($12.80).
