It’s spring! This means you’re likely looking to pack your winter clothing and “freshen up” your wardrobe. But before you go out and splurge on a new wardrobe for the season, look at how you can get a new spring wardrobe and stay stylish – while still staying under your budget. 

One of the most affordable ways to refresh your wardrobe is with a few pieces of nice jewelry that you can mix and match with the clothing you already have to create fresh new spring looks. 

The benefit of updating your closet with a few trendy accessories is that you won’t need to splurge on a whole new wardrobe – just a few versatile pieces.

 When it comes to jewelry, getting stuff off the rack is easy. But the difficulty is finding off-the-rack pieces that match or complement a variety of pieces in your wardrobe that accurately fit your style. For this reason, a great way to get jewelry is to print on demand jewelry that you can customize to your outfits and style. Whether you need earrings with faux emeralds the exact shade of your green sandals or a uniquely shaped necklace to match the print of your favorite dress, printing jewelry on demand allows you to have the perfect piece that fits seamlessly with your outfits for a highly luxurious look. After all, nothing says “luxury” more than jewelry specifically designed for you and by you. 


If you want to refresh your wardrobe with a couple of new pieces of apparel, there’s a way to do so without blowing your budget. If you’re willing to get a little creative (and want to save a lot of money on your wardrobe), there’s no better way to buy secondhand.  While you may need to browse a bit to find items in your size that you like, you’ll almost certainly find some gems. 

Perhaps you’ll stumble on a barely used vintage jacket for a fraction of its price or a comfortable pair of old jeans for just a few bucks. You can check out thrift shops, browse Facebook marketplace or similar apps, or check consignment stores where you’ll find branded merchandise much below market value. The added benefit of buying secondhand clothes is that you will get clothes at a fraction of the cost you’d spend at retail stores, and your wardrobe will be unique.

Another great way to refresh your wardrobe under budget is a clothing and accessories trade with your friends. You know what they say: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In this case, we mean that there are probably many pieces of beautiful apparel in your wardrobe that you barely use.

Perhaps it’s that bright pink dress your aunt gave you that isn’t your color or that pair of bootleg jeans you bought online that are just too long.  However, they could be adorable outfits – on someone else. Similarly, there are probably several outfits in your friends’ wardrobes that they never wear but you’d love to get your hands on them. So, organize a little closet trade with your friends. Take out the clothes you never wear, and ask your friends to do the same. Exchange the outfits you’d like with each other, and voila – you now have a bunch of cute outfits for 0 cost – and so do your friends!


If you do decide to head to the malls, spring is a perfect time to do it! At the beginning of the season, new styles flood the stores, and shops need to make room for the new clothes by eliminating inventory for older or less popular styles. And that means sales! Once you’ve identified the stores you like with sales on, take advantage of the discounts by buying items in bulk. There’s no reason you can’t buy in bulk when it comes to clothes, especially when it comes to essential clothing items you know you’ll wear all the time. Find a cheap tank top or a pair of shorts you like. Buy 3, in a different color each. Mix and match these bought-in-bulk items with other pieces in your wardrobe. No one can tell you have three similar shirts – or how cheap you bought them!
