The weather is getting warmer and the buds are starting to appear on the trees, sure signs that spring is just around the corner. While fall fashion may seem to get the most buzz every year, there are plenty of great things to say about spring styles.
If you're excited to get out of your bulky winter clothes and enjoy the nice weather, here are some fun ways to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
1. Start From the Inside
Is your underwear drawer looking a little sad? It can be tempting to put off updating your unmentionables in the winter when you're covering up with so many layers anyway, but spring is the perfect time to choose some fun, pretty undergarments. Remember to choose styles that will work well under lighter fabrics.
2. Spiff Up Your Feet
Take a break from your winter boots and slip on a pair of sandals! There are so many unique styles, and finding a new pair of sandals is the perfect reason to splurge on a pedicure as well.
3. Consider a Scarf
Put your cozy winter scarves back in storage and choose a light silk scarf instead. Spring is a great time to show off some floral prints and pastel colors, and a scarf adds a dressy and unique touch to any outfit.
4. Get Ready for the Rain
Umbrellas, raincoats, and rainboots are practical and can make any outfit look more fun and whimsical. There are countless colors and styles, and rain accessories are the perfect place to choose novelty themes if you want.
5. Choose a Seasonal Perfume
Embrace the warmer weather by choosing a light floral or aquatic scent. Whether you use traditional perfume sprays or concentrated fragrance oils, you can easily find a spring scent that fits your personal style.
6. Change Your Makeup Colors
While bold, dramatic, and strong looks are great for the holidays, warmer seasons are more conducive to subtle, natural tones. Update your makeup drawer to favor light colors and nude tones, and add some new nail polish colors as well.
7. Don't Forget the Sunblock
Chances are you'll spend more time outside in the warmer weather, and it's important to keep your skin healthy and safe from sun damage. There are many options for sunblock, including hypoallergenic choices and some that also include a moisturizer. You may want to try some samples first to find the one that works best with your skin chemistry and provides enough protection.
8. Add Some Sparkle
Whether you love necklaces, bracelets, earrings, or all three, pick out a couple new selections for your spring wardrobe. You don't have to spend a lot of money when you go with costume jewelry, and in many cases, these inexpensive pieces are hard to distinguish from the real thing. Go one step further and get a multi functional item, such as a fitness tracker bracelet.
9. Accessorize Your Hair
Maybe you want to make a big change and go for a cut and new color. If not, do something more subtle like experimenting with a headband or small barrettes.
10. Find a Light Jacket
Spring is a great time to choose a light trench or windbreaker. Think about your local climate and choose a jacket that will be warm enough on cool evenings but that doesn't carry the bulk of a winter coat.
11. Enjoy the Freedom of a Dress
Perhaps one of the best ways to enjoy the warm weather is to choose a comfortable and flirty dress. You can find countless affordable options from casual shifts to formal gowns at tobi.
12. Update Your Handbag
Your handbag is not only an accent piece for your whole outfit but also carries all your important items from work to home to an evening out. While handbags can be pricey, there are also many affordable options so you can find a fun new accessory without spending your whole budget.
Whether you're into exploring every new fashion trend as soon as it hits the runway or you prefer to keep a more classic wardrobe, spring is a great time to change things up and add some new pieces.
By choosing some small and inexpensive additions and upgrades, you can enjoy the fun of an updated wardrobe without breaking your budget. Dresses, sandals, and rain accessories are especially fun additions, and spring is a great time to try out a subtle makeup look as well.
