There are plenty of spring buys under $50 that will have you looking a million bucks. It’s easier than ever to recreate those high-end designer looks on a budget thanks to the number of chain stores that are so in tune with this season’s trends. Whether you prefer bold prints or simple, understated elegance, there’s something for everyone out there this spring. Take a look at some of the best spring buys under $50, below.
When it comes to spring buys under $50, jewellery is a great place to start. This bejewelled bib necklace from Forever 21 features rhinestone accents and comes in a fresh coral colour. It’s the perfect statement piece for pairing with spring dresses. The necklace costs just under $25 and you can find similar styles at ASOS, too.
Stand out in a pair of statement striped pants this spring. You could go for a vertical striped jean like these ones that cost $25 from Forever 21. For something a bit dressier, try a monochrome pant with a tuxedo stripe down the side. Wear them with a plain blouse and black heels to complete the monochrome look.
Geometric prints and patterns were all over the designer runways for spring. Work this trend into your wardrobe with a fun printed dress, like this one from Dorothy Perkins. It features a retro geometric pattern and costs $44. Check out River Island and Forever 21 for other geometric dresses at this price point. Team your printed dress with patent flats and a compact side bag for a fuss-free everyday look.
One of the key jewellery pieces this spring will be the cuff bracelet. Choose one in a high polish metal finish with geometric cut out details. You can pick one up at Forever 21 for around $6. Similar versions are also available at Dorothy Perkins and ASOS.
Anything with an iridescent, metallic sheen will be on-trend this spring. You could easily play it safe with accessories, but why not be a bit daring with some iridescent clothing? This leather-look biker jacket comes in a cool light green colour and has a pearly finish. It’s a bargain at just under $35 from Forever 21 and would look great thrown over light spring dresses.
Instead of big floral prints, this spring will be all about small, daisy-like prints. This Topshop skirt comes in just on $50 and is the kind of skirt you could wear in the transition between winter and spring. Wear it with tights and cropped sweaters while the weather is still cool or bare-legged with a pastel t-shirt on warmer days.
Really shake up your spring look in a flame coloured dress. This one is from Topshop and costs $40. You could also check out ASOS and Old Navy for a range of affordable flame coloured dresses. Wear them with neutral shoes and accessories, and maybe a contrasting piece of statement jewellery.
Clear and see-through accessories will be popular for spring. This season, plenty of designers are choosing to include clear panels on a variety of shoes. Stay on top of the trend with these Forever 21 sandals that have a colour blocked design and clear panel at the toe. They’re a steal at just under $20 and you can find similar styles at ASOS and JCPenney.
Refresh your accessories this season by picking up a chic white mini bag. White clothes and accessories are on-trend right now, and this $38 bag from Nordstrom would make a stylish addition to your spring outfits. Wear it with anything from flirty sundresses to chic tailored suits. Also check out Mango and Aldo for similarly stylish mini bags.
