5 cheap spring basics that will make you look chic


It’s an urban legend these days that you have to spend a lot of money to be chic. Over the past decade, the high-low trend has emerged, vintage shopping has reached its peak in popularity, and it is no longer considered inconspicuous to rave about something to your friends about something you’ve just achieved. In fact, it is said that cheap thrills can make your entire outfit feel trendier and more expensive.

Whether it’s a great blouse or cool sandals, sometimes inexpensive basics are what stands out the most in your outfit (and no one would ever guess it’s actually affordable). There are a few affordable essentials that almost always fall into this category – from the sweater style that will make your jeans-and-a-shirt outfit sing to the coolest jewelry style you own this spring. Below are the five cheap spring staples that look far from good and will add chic to your entire outfit.
