Summer is almost here, and we’re working hard to update our wardrobe accordingly. Months after first viewing some of the best warm-weather trends on the runway, the time has finally come to be able to wear them in the wild. The only problem is, we want them all. While our closets certainly have no objection, our wallets say otherwise, so we’ve worked hard to scour the world of fashion for pieces that allow us to indulge in our favorite looks in a more affordable way than ever.
Ahead, find six top Spring and Summer fashion trends, and shop them all for under $150. You might even want to pick up more than one piece at these prices! Happy shopping.
1. Bike Shorts
Reborn on the likes of Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, and more, spandex is athleisure at its core. Shop some of our favorite activewear brands and fast-fashion names alike for this street style take on an athletic favorite.
2. Puff Sleeves
Puffy sleeves are the easiest way to infuse a little feminine flair into even your edgiest looks this Summer. Whether a sweatshirt, a silk top, or something in between, make sure to have a little bit of this subtly exaggerated silhouette around to try on for size.
Tie-dye is one of the easiest trends to do on a budget. Sure, high-fashion designers have adapted the colorful look in everything from outerwear to silk dresses, but it is, at its core, an affordable DIY look from our childhood.
4. Utility Style
Whether a full-blown boilersuit or a more understated pair of cargo pants, utility chic was all over the runways for Spring. We particularly love to mix it with our more feminine pieces, like puff sleeves and bows, to add that je ne sais quoi of a borrowed-from-the-boys look gone rogue.
5. Hair Bows
The perfect add-on to any look, from denim to cocktail dresses, a bow is just what every girl’s hair has been craving. Tie it around a high ponytail, or opt for a more loose and long look with cascading locks — anything goes when it comes to bows this Summer.
