Are you hot to break out some spring fashions? Invest wisely with picks from three huge trends, all priced under $100.


Off-the-shoulder shirts and shoulder cut-outs might just be spring’s hottest trend. It’s a great way to show a little skin in a subtle, romantic way. Plus, there’s something boho and free-spirited about the style.

The Farrow Port Top ($78 at balances an exposed shoulder with a relaxed fit top in a soft denim fabric. The pairing keeps it sleek and simple with enough personality to turn heads.

Shoulder cutouts, or cold-shoulder tops, are a great way to dip into the trend. The Topshop Secret Garden Print Cold Shoulder Top ($68 at Nordstrom) features a lovely floral print, keyhole neckline and elbow length sleeves for a very flattering shape.


Lace, sheer, satin, sexy. You can find lingerie-inspired dresses and tops everywhere right now, and they’re perfect for spring. They’re light, soft, flowy and flirty. Pair a camisole with a swishy skirt, or top your favorite pair of leggings with a slip. Add layers, such as a cardigan or blazer, to provide versatility and more modesty.

The Express Strappy Scalloped Lace Hem Cami ($25), available in black or white, can take the place of a standard tank, but adds lingerie-inspired details like a lace hemline and double spaghetti straps.

The Free People Piece of Mind Slip ($88) is a versatile option that can be worn over or under other pieces to let its pretty lace neckline show in interesting ways.

There are two big trends in sandals this year: lace-ups and block heels.

Lacing can be found on everything from pointy-toe flats to knee-high gladiator sandals to high heels, and can vary from boho and romantic to edgy and tough. The Zara Wood and Leather Sandals ($90) mix braided and studded straps with long laces that tie around the ankle to create a look that can be dressed up or down.

The season’s block heels range from boho ’70s styles with wooden heels to ultra-sleek urban trompers in summer suede. The Kenneth Cole Reaction Log Set Sandal ($89) has a throw-back shape and retro brass studs, while the Steve Madden Irenee Ankle Strap Sandal ($80, both at Nordstrom) balances its chunky heel with minimalist straps.
