While not every trend that struts down the runway or red carpet is one that is easily translated into everyday life, there are several that you absolutely can and wholeheartedly should embrace for the spring season. As the weather gets warmer and the sun shines a bit brighter, these are the real life trends to try today. After all, if you can’t have some fun with fashion, what’s the point?
Here are the perfect fashion-forward items to add to your wardrobe this season, all at $100 or less:
Whether your hair is shorter like street style icon Nicole Warne’s or on the longer side, dangly earrings that brush against your shoulder or collarbone add a true element of visual interest.
We have long been fans of modern bomber jackets like Cara Delevingne’s, and we doubt this trend is going anywhere anytime soon. To tone down the masculine factor, follow her lead and wear yours with a pair of stilettos.
Gabrielle Union proves that embracing your girly side can still be uber sexy. Wear your ladylike fit and flare for a special occasion or even to the office for a flash of femininity.
Jourdan Dunn chose colorful patchwork denim, but there are plenty of more subtle options in various shades of blue as well. Pack away the black denim you’ve been wearing all winter and add some variety with one of these options.
Even if your gams don’t quite reach Doutzen Kroes’ levels, leather shorts can be a flattering way to show off some skin. Paired with sneakers like she did, this piece can become a daytime staple. In the evening, try pumps or booties instead.
