We write a blog for a living — we know what it's like to bargain shop. It can be incredibly draining, but finding a gem is totally worth the extra energy. Our latest Shop-A-Matic aims to save you a little footwork. We enlisted penny-pinching expert Kathryn Finney of the Budget Fashionista to help find 130 items to fit twelve top spring trends: Asymmetrical necklines, destroyed denim, exposed zippers, floral prints, fringe, rompers, metallics, neon brights, nude layers, ruffles, sheer, and statement jewelry. Read on for our top six picks.
Neon Brights: Neon-Yellow Bubble Dress from T.J. Maxx
Why we like it: Neon is tricky to wear but this shade of yellow is toned-down enough to brighten up your wardrobe without turning you into an eighties nightmare.
Jumpsuits & Rompers: Ruffle Romper by By Zoe
Why we like it: The deep plunge of this ruffle romper allows you to get creative with layering — throw a tank top on underneath or a cardigan on top.
Statement Jewelry: Livia Necklace from Anthropologie
Why we like it: Nothing dresses up a simple tank better than a bib necklace. The dripping crystals offer just enough sparkle while the green hues pack a subtle punch of color.
Exposed Zippers: Exposed Zip-Front Color-Block Skirt by Twelve by Twelve
Why we like it: We love the form-fitting shape of this bandage mini. The exposed zipper adds a tough element to complement the sexy silhouette.
Floral Prints: Floral Skirt by H&M
Why we like it: This floral print is psychedelic and neon-infused. Need we say more?
Destroyed Denim: Boy-Fit Jean by American Eagle
Why we like it: These slouchy, relaxed pants are perfect for the weekend. Also they're distressed enough to be trendy but don't look like they got caught in a lawnmower.
