Each spring I like to do a post on the biggest trends for the season. There is something so fun about getting a few new items to add some pep to your wardrobe!
I try to focus on trends that I think will stay around longer, or will have more staying power, as I don’t want to spend money on things that are only here for one season. And to that point, I also don’t think you need to spend a lot on these trends. This is the time to shop the less expensive stores and not pay an arm and a leg. You’ll have a few new things that make you feel more up-to-date and that freshen up your closet, but you haven’t spent so much that you need to feel guilty if they don’t last longer than a season or two. For basics and classic items that are true investment pieces, I do think it’s worth spending more if you can afford it. (I wrote a post here on what to spend more on if you are interested).
