Focusing on color is the best way to transition your wardrobe to spring on a budget. This spring, color trends fall on both ends of the spectrum, from demure pastels to bold neons. Rather than spending too much on a new wardrobe, incorporate these color trends into your current closet with accessories. Throw a pretty pastel yellow scarf over a blouse. Or, get some bright neon flats to wear with jeans. Target and Payless are two great places to find trendy flats for inexpensive prices.

Patterns are also going to be big this spring — polka dots and bold floral prints are my favorites. Flower-printed tops can be found pretty much anywhere for a wide range of prices. The tank above is from Old Navy and costs only $17.50. And aren’t those polka dotted earrings sweet? They’re from Asos for only $10.74. The easiest way to wear patterns is to pair them with a solid base. But, mixing patterns can look amazing, too. If you want to mix patterns, stripes make a good base.

Retro styles are also a big trend. Everything from classy 50s silhouettes to 70s arts and crafts will be big this spring. Another decade’s fashion that will be popular for spring is the 1920s. To get this look think The Great Gatsby and Art Deco. Flapper-style dresses, beading, and feathers will be popular, as will Art Deco geometric lines and shapes.
