The idea of warmer weather is making me crave fresh fashion items, and with spring on the horizon, there are some stunning new trends that I can't stop thinking about. While there are hundreds of cool micro-trends I could talk about, I'm focusing on a handful of my favorites, which I'm planning to add to my closet. Here's the best part: All of the pieces ahead are priced under $100, so if you're looking for some great affordable buys, that is what you'll find here.
So which trends are topping my spring shopping list? Everything from gauzy sheer items to '90s tube dresses to shiny metallic pieces, which are too eye-catching to ignore. There are some key spring trends like rosette details and maxi skirts that I already have in my closet, but now that I've found amazing under-$100 versions, I thought I'd share them. Ahead, shop the six best spring trends for under $100.
If there's any single item I could suggest you try out this season, it's a maxi skirt. Floor-length hemlines have been trending for a minute now, and spring 2023 is when they're really going to peak. Try swapping one out for your typical jeans or trousers for a fresh feel.

Adding a pop of metallic is like turbocharging your outfits to another level. A silver bag or shoes just adds that It factor to really anything but plays especially well with toned-down basics.

With all things '90s and early '00s having a big resurgence, it's no surprise that one major silhouette of the era—strapless dresses—would be too. The versions bubbling up today, though, are much more refined and minimalistic.

We've been yammering on about the rosette trend for months now, but with pretty new versions emerging left and right, you can't really blame us. Whether you add a flower choker to your outfit or wear them embroidered onto a top, spring '23 is when this trend will be fully in bloom.
Shades of periwinkle, lavender, mint, and light pink flooded the runways in what I'm describing as the new era of pastels. I'm especially keen on trying this trend, as I just know it will play well with my wardrobe of classic neutrals.

This spring, "naked" dressing is all about gauzy, sheer fabrics that are ideal for layering. Try a semisheer top or take a bolder approach with a slightly see-through skirt.
