I recently spent an afternoon chatting with some of my friends over Zoom. Given that I’m the go-to fashion person in my inner circle, conversations often lead to shopping advice. One of my friends asked me to dish out my favorite trends that are chic but also simple and versatile. What I did is made a quick little list and messaged it over to everyone after the convo so they could keep it in the back of their mind when they’re ready to shop. But I also took it one step further: I ensured that the trends in question could all be bought on the cheap.
Interested in which spring trends made my under-$100 list? Keep scrolling for a bit of visual inspiration along with shopping recommendations. Keep in mind that while some of the specific pieces you'll see in the street style imagery below might ring in on the higher end, each look can be achieved at an affordable price, which I'll show you.
