12 "Trendy" Spring Items That Are Easy to Find at a Low Price

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. 

Scroll to shop 12 spring trends that there's no reason to break the bank for.

Tube Tops

A refreshing change from the statement blouses that were everywhere last spring.

Long Denim Skirts

Retro Sneakers

If they look like sneakers that were worn in the '70s or '80s, they're cool now.

A small price to pay for sneakers you'll wear constantly.

Polka Dots

Who doesn't love a good one-and-done outfit in a timeless print?

Polka dots are always a thing, but more than ever this season.

Bermuda Shorts

The secret to pulling off long shorts is in the shoes. I recommend chunky sneakers or strappy high-heel sandals.

It's only a matter of time before these sell out.


This also comes in an ombré version, and I honestly can't choose.

Baseball Caps

I'd wear this with a black midi dress and white sneakers (or anything else—it doesn't get more versatile).


Another cute thing I recently bought (in camel).



Amazon is also a cute-cardigan gold mine.


Tangerine is spring's It color. Get ahead of it.

This tangerine tank pairs so well with denim.

Crew Socks

Fashion girls are wearing crew socks with loafers, over leggings, with their New Balance sneakers—you name it.
