If you’re anything like me, you probably want to overhaul your entire wardrobe as soon as the weather takes a turn. But the truth is, you don’t need to spend a fortune to update your closet. A well-curated spring capsule wardrobe can go a long way in providing versatility, comfort, and style without breaking the bank. In today’s blog post, I’ll be sharing my top picks for spring capsule wardrobe essentials, all under $100. From lightweight outerwear to layering basics along with the pieces you already own, you’ll be able to create a variety of looks all season long.
Cargo pants are the wardrobe update everyone needs. Not only are they versatile and comfortable, but they also add an edgy, utilitarian touch to any outfit. They come in a variety of styles, from straight-leg to tapered, and can be dressed up or down. Pair them with a simple white tee and sneakers for a casual daytime look, or dress them up with a blouse and heels for a night out. Best of all, you can score a great pair for under $100. The ones I’m wearing above are from Walmart.
Button-down shirts are another staple that you can’t go wrong with. One of the best things about this timeless piece is its versatility. You can experiment with different ways of styling it, like tying it at the waist, tucking it into high-waisted pants, or wearing it open as a light layer. The possibilities are endless, making it a great piece for your spring capsule wardrobe.
Lace tops and corsets are huge this spring. They add a feminine and romantic touch to any outfit and can easily elevate your look on a budget. Don’t be afraid to mix and match these tops with shorts or flowy pants for a myriad of styling possibilities. You can find tons of cute options under $100 at Saks OFF 5TH, Nordstrom, H&M and more.
Neutral blazers are a key item to make any affordable outfit look expensive. This season, boxy oversized cuts are on-trend, but don’t count out more fitted options. A classic white or beige blazer is timeless, while a patterned or textured one can add some interest to your wardrobe. Play with proportions by pairing an oversized blazer with a fitted top and trousers, or go for a sleek and minimalist look with a more fitted blazer and a simple tank.
Maxi Skirts & Dresses
Maxi skirts and dresses have made a comeback this season as a more sophisticated option to mini dresses. With boxy oversized silhouettes as well as more fitted ones available, they offer a seriously stylish way to switch up your look this season. I love the floral print on this one and this one is perfect for a special occasion.
