Spring Fashion Trends: Splurge vs. Steal

splurge vs steal neon fashion

Neon

I have pretty much loved neon since the 80s. Is there anything more “Look at me, I’m here!” than a glowing chartreuse garment? It’s a party in a shade family, I’m telling you.

SPLURGE: What better to splurge on than an iconic designer piece? This Halston Heritage Sleeveless Drape Dress ($295) fits the bill. It’s made of crepe and I love the juxtaposition of turtleneck and miniskirt.

STEAL: You can get a similar draped realness with the re:named Maddy Slip Dress ($62), but at a much smaller price. It’s a twist on the classic slip dress, in both shape and color.

BONUS BUY: Both dresses (or anything else, for that matter!) will work with these Schutz Josseana Strappy Sandals ($170). Aren’t they amazing?

splurge vs steal bold purses

Bold Bags

I’m not sure if bold bags ever go out of fashion. But there’s something about warmer weather that makes it more of a necessity. It can be a bright color or a fun shape, just make sure it’s not boring.

SPLURGE: Want to be guaranteed to have the most interesting bag in the room? Choose this Cult Gaia Eos Box Bag ($348). I love the vintage vibe. Side note: I scooped up many box bags at thrift shops back in the day. I feel very lucky when I look at this price tag.

STEAL: The uber affordable brand reTH is exclusive to Shopbop. This reTH Karter Bag ($99) looks way more pricey than it is, doesn’t it? Bonus points for being a crossbody; they’re so popular right now.

splurge vs steal fashion tie dye

Tie Dye

Can you believe tie dye is back? If you were around in the 60s, you must be cursing yourself for throwing out your old deadhead shirts; they’d be worth a fortune today! But then again, they were probably covered in Woodstock mud and patchouli, so…

SPLURGE: This Raquel Allegra Long Sleeve Tee ($223) is a modern take on tie dye, with the fancy price to match. But I love the Rorschach test look of it.

STEAL: For a more traditional rainbow hued tie dye the Lioness Palermo Blazer $104 fits the bill. Plus, a tie dye blazer is like a fashion mullet; business in the cut, party in the color!
