Tips from our beauty expert on how to master the hottest looks this Spring – On a budget! 

Updating your style for Spring can be easy and affordable when you combine inspirations from the runway with styles at everyday low prices from Family Dollar. Even though the catwalk is full of different options, don’t feel like you have to update everything to look your best.

Let different aspects of the trends, like colors or even accessories, help you pick the pieces you need to update your new look.



According to the Pantone report, Spring fashion this year is a combination of soft pastels with intense brights to create color and balance. The shades for the season are various tones of green, yellow, red, orange, purple and beige.

To create a casual look that is great for a day in the park, piggyback an orange tank on top of a white one, and then pair it with mock denim style leggings by Mix & Co. The colors will update your look while keeping you comfortable.



The styles in fashion are just as vast as the colors this season. Fringe, graphic prints, wide pant legs and maxi skirts are just a few favorites with many designers like Calvin Klein, Zimmermann, and Wes Gordon.

To put together a Spring look that is more wallet-friendly, use the inspiration from runway designers by opting for a maxi dress from Mix & Co. in a bold color like blue. This is a great look to wear to the office with a suit jacket, or out to dinner by dressing it up with jewelry.



The looks for jewelry this year are bold. Big colorful accessories were spotted on the models featured in Chanel fashion shows, while Valentino and Saint Laurent used gold chains with large pendants.

To give your jewelry a fresh look, mix several gold bracelets with bright colorful necklaces from Mix & Co. to give your look some eclectic style. Have your necklaces do double duty by wrapping them around your wrist to look like a bracelet. The key is for it to look like you’re wearing multiple bracelets to create a stacked bracelet look.

If you can’t make a lot of changes to your wardrobe or jewelry, try updating your shoes!

Trends for shoes have been focused on pumps or sandals, floral printed loafers and flatforms, which are similar to platforms but lower.

Try opting for sandals with metallic silver to add edge and shine, or go with a green colored shoe with bold beads, like ones from Mix & Co. to pair with a skirt or jeans.

No matter where you pull your inspiration from, go bold and colorful this Spring!
