Before you spend a single dollar on new pieces for your wardrobe, take a close look at what’s already in your closet. You might be surprised how easily you can re-purpose fall and winter items for springtime! Pair your favorite trousers with a cute spring top, a skinny belt and some strappy sandals for instant springtime fashion, or pair that lightweight sweater dress with brightly-colored sheer leggings and pretty pumps to bring your older pieces into seasonal style. As a bonus, you can use this wardrobe assessment time to pack away fall and winter items and free up more space in your closet for a few new items.

6. Hit Up Consignment and Thrift Stores First

Now that you’ve gone through your current wardrobe to figure out what you already have (and what you still need), your first shopping stop should be your local consignment or thrift stores. You’ll be surprised what you can find for next to nothing at the thrift stores! You can save even more money at the consignment shop if you clean out your own closet first and take the nicer items in to trade or sell. Many consignment stores will offer you store credit in exchange for items you no longer want or need, and some thrift stores will offer you a discount for any donations you make. Even without the discounts, thrift shopping can offer you hours of guilt-free shopping to update your wardrobe!

5. Buy a Few Key Pieces to Mix and Match

Keep in mind that you don’t need to purchase an entire new wardrobe every time the seasons change. Adding a few key pieces to your wardrobe is all you need to show off your favorite spring looks! Choose pieces you can easily mix-and-match to create several different outfits without spending a fortune. Even better if you can find pieces that spruce up pieces you already own! Choose a flirty skirt in a color that works with several different tops or a cute pair of heels that can go from jeans to skirts flawlessly.

4. Don’t Forget the Accessories!

One of the quickest ways to spruce up your spring wardrobe is to accessorize. Accessories like a fun, floppy hat, sunglasses and a cute bag can add a touch of spring to just about any outfit, and can be much cheaper than buying an all-new outfit. Inexpensive, trendy jewelry and the right shoes can also help tie your spring look together without breaking the bank. Check your local sales or visit the thrift store for great accessories to save even more!
