If it seems like clothing and accessories get more and more expensive, you're certainly not wrong. That said, there are more affordable brands than ever to shop, many of which focus the bulk of their inventory on trend-driven pieces. Bonus: This spring, many of the biggest trends are just inherently cheap, e.g., crew socks, baseball caps, and tube tops, so it's easier than ever to look "trendy" without spending your entire paycheck in one sitting.

Between brands like Topshop, Madewell, Nike, and Mango, I unearthed tons of cheap pieces that represent 12 of the season's biggest trends. And so you get more bang for your buck, I selected the pieces within each category that are the most timeless because you never know when a trend is going to turn into a wardrobe staple.
