Simple and Affordable Ways to Spice Up Your Spring Wardrobe

Posted on 03/16/2009

The good news is it’s almost time to pack up the turtlenecks and corduroys to make room for the sassy sun dresses and lightweight leggings. The bad news is, while flowers and plants may be flourishing this spring your fashion budget probably isn’t growing. If you’re a little worried this year’s spring wardrobe is going to look an awful lot like last year’s spring wardrobe because of a lack of funds– don’t worry. We’ve got some simple and affordable ways to spice up your spring wardrobe.

Take Inventory
Make sure you know what you’ve got. Spring is all about getting a fresh start. Why not try applying that rule to your closet? Clean it out and only put back the pieces you love and promise to wear. Everything else can be donated (yay for the tax write-off!) or sold (more money for new pieces!)

Swap Stuff
Your friends are likely going through the same fashion dilemmas you are. Why not commiserate and swap some stuff? Plan a swap party where every guest brings clothing and accessories to trade. Everyone will walk away feeling like they’ve got something new in their wardrobe.

Pick Up Accessories
Accessories can be a great way to update your wardrobe in a big way without spending big money. Try picking up a scarf at Kohl's like one with a lovely leaf print. It’s on sale for $17.50. Or for just $19.99 you can add a little color to your spring ensembles with this orange clutch from Target.

Shop Sales
Want to add a cute dress to your spring wardrobe without adding to your credit card bills? Check out Old Navy for dresses starting at $15. Plus you can score some extra savings by searching for hidden coupons at Old Navy Weekly. With just a little money you’ll be looking hot this spring.
