Spring has officially sprung, meaning there’s no better time than now to get a jump start on your wardrobe. As the season gears up, we’ll be trading in our heavy coats, chunky sweaters and boots for flouncy dresses, lightweight blazers and sandals. But revamping your closet doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Luckily, if you’re in the market for spring’s biggest trends at budget-friendly prices, Nordstrom has you covered.
With thousands of incredible items to choose from, finding the season’s must-have items can be time consuming, so we caught up with Kate Bellman, Nordstrom’s managing fashion editor, who gave us some advice on what trends and styles to look for.
According to Bellman, this season’s biggest trends include freshened-up tailoring with silhouettes that “ease towards relaxed shapes” including full-length trousers, soft blazers and statement shirting. Romantic dresses and details including “pretty lace, chiffon and pleats” and “floral prints in pretty palettes” are another top trend. “Crochet, fringe and embroidery in captivating colors” give way to a new “crafty chic” style, too. Lastly, “cutout tops, shirred dresses, strappy sandals, plunging necklines and mini hemlines” are some of spring’s sexiest trends, Bellman says.
With all this in mind, we picked out more of the trendiest under-$100 clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories that we could find from Nordstrom that are sure to take you through the season in major style without breaking the bank.
“These earrings just make me happy with the colorful pop combo of mod-inspired resin and bright bling,” she says, and we couldn’t agree more.
“This colorful handheld bag is a playful twist on the classic straw tote.” What’s not to love?
As for one of her favorite shoes, Bellman says, “These shoes are everything of-the-moment — bold color, sexy straps and a modern square toe.”
