Budget-Friendly Spring Fashion Looks

Budget-friendly Spring Fashion

Spring is the perfect time to spruce up the wardrobe for the warm months ahead. I always enjoy picking up a few new pieces to add to the rotation, but in the process I try to be mindful of how much I’m spending to keep my budget in check.

Today I’m sharing with you three cute new outfits I’ve picked up for spring that incorporate some of this year’s fashion trends-including fringe, cold-shoulders, and geometric prints. Even better, all of these outfits were purchased at Target, Wal-mart, and K-mart- making them extremely budget-friendly!

Dressed Up Fringe

Styled With: Tank-$4 on Clearance (Target), Skirt-$20 BOGO 50 (Target), Sweater- $4 on Clearance (JCPenney), High Heels-$10 on Clearance (K-mart), Necklace $3 on Clearance (Burkes Outlet)= $41 Total

This jacquard fringe mini is the ideal skirt to go straight from the office to date night. Although the skirt and tank are pretty basic pieces, adding in a colorful cardigan and cute necklace really dress up the look, making it perfect for spring.


Girly Boho Chic

Styled with: Cold Shoulder Peasant Blouse-$9 (Wal-mart), High-Low Lace Skirt with Belt-$13 (Wal-mart), Lace Up Sandals-$10 on Clearance (Target-similar)= $32 Total

So, I don’t know about you all but I thought this outfit was simply too adorable to pass up. I love that peasant tops have made a come back and I’m loving the cute cold shoulder detail in this blouse. The high-low skirt is also a really versatile piece that could easily be dressed up or down.


Paint the Town in Geometric

Budget Friendly Spring Outfits (5)

Styled with: Geometric Print Dress with Zip-Up Front-$20 on Sale (K-mart), Belt-$5 (Wal-mart), Pumps-$8 on Clearance (Target)= $33 Total

This dress has such a gorgeous print that you’ll definitely be noticed wherever you go. I really love the zip-front detail and the geometric pattern, and I chose to add the blue belt to really accentuate the waist. Perfect for special occasions and family outings.


Which look is your favorite for Spring? What fashion trends are you loving at the moment?
