Of all the seasons, spring is synonymous with rebirth. So, what better time to revamp your wardrobe than the days leading up to the spring equinox. Why not use your wardrobe to conjure a new you? These 10 spring staples don’t just help you cultivate a fresh aesthetic, they do so on a budget. All of these spring essentials are under $100, so you don’t have to break the bank to update your look.
What’s on trend for spring 2017? Athleisure still reigns supreme, striped shirt dresses take you from the office to the bar with effortless style, and pale hues are white hot.

Your spring makeup style should be light and breezy, as the temperatures rise and you’re hitting the town.
