The Spring Trends You Want to Test Are Actually Affordable

Another season, another reason for us to tell you about our current must-haves. This time, we’re here to scream from the rooftops about how killer the new spring selection is at Macy’s. Seriously, it’s like a never-ending gold mine of the best trends you can think of, like jolts of bright colors, platform shoes, and reinvented classics, to name a few.

Our editors across both coasts have, as always, been scanning their favorites on the site and are here to share them with you. What’s even better is that most of their favorite spring buys ring in at under $200 (minus a few accessories), which makes dipping our toes in a fresh trend all the more tempting. Keep reading to see what they can’t wait to wear this season.

Take it from us—Aniyah Morinia has a knack for finding pieces that are extremely stylish but still easy on your wallet. Case in point: the following spring picks. 

“I can’t go on Instagram without seeing these heels, and I’m not complaining. Jumbo platforms are the ultimate statement shoe, and the satin effect only adds to the drama. About 100 posts later, and I’m ready to tap into this trend for spring.”

“It’s safe to say I’m still not over cutouts. The negative space makes the entire look feel chic and elevated even if the other pieces are basics.”

“I had so many mixed feelings about low-rise jeans when the trend first started bubbling, but I’m such a fan now. Pair with sneakers, heels, or your favorite pair of loafers and an oversize shirt for the ultimate spring vibe.”

“You can never go wrong with a staple button-down shirt, but I’m adding some variety to my collection with this two-toned number. It’s easy to style, and the leather material adds a bit of edge to any spring look.”

“The vibe is relaxed and carefree, which is the energy I’m bringing into the spring season. The styling options are endless, so I will be ordering this in multiple colorways.”

Is your wardrobe classic and timeless? We promise you’re going to want every piece on Bobby Schuessler’s list. 

“I’m wearing loose-fitting jeans on repeat right now. This straight-leg cut in the light wash is especially trendy.”

“The oversize shirt reigns supreme right now as a modern staple. The button detail on the back is particularly noteworthy here.”

“These relaxed trousers can be dressed up with a blouse and heels or dressed down with a tee and sneakers—so versatile.”

“Saturated hues continue to be the moment, and this coveted Coach bag with a puffy design is the perfect everyday satchel.”

“The beauty of a checked blazer is that you can toss it over any ensemble for an instantly polished silhouette.”

Looking for a touch of trend and some seriously cool pieces? We’re already adding every piece from Kristen Nichols’s selection to our carts.

“Sporty sunglasses are the moment, and this pair from Prada is sitting at the top of my spring wish list.”

“The runways have spoken, and slouchy, wide-leg khaki pants will be huge this season.”

“The ’90s resurgence is here, and I can’t get enough of the throwback hair claws that are everywhere right now.”

“The styling possibilities of a great button-down shirt are limitless.”

“Borrow this leather jacket from the men’s section to tap into the oversize silhouette that is trending.”

Leave it to Indya Brown to find hidden gems in the form of cutout dresses and accessories that stun. 

Dresses like this one are a priority in my closet for several reasons: They’re extremely versatile, easily packable in a carry-on, and make you look like you put in way more effort than you actually did. Wear this one with boots or strappy neutral heels.”

“Instead of reaching for jeans or trousers, try swapping in a pair of cargo pants. They feel more sartorially intentional and add a sporty element that can easily be notched up with a pair of heels.”

“Rose scents don’t usually appeal to me, but this fragrance has so much depth that spraying it on feels more like an experience. The beautiful harmony of florals is an instant mood booster.”

“Tennis styles are also cool again, and I’m personally investing in the trend with this dazzling piece from Oma the Label. It’s natural to think that you have to go full-on cocktail hour with a piece like this, but really, the key is to wear it with casual pieces like a simple white tee or a tank top.”

“I’m declaring it the season of big jewels! But really, colorful and extravagant-looking gems seem to be gaining traction on my feed, and I’m all in. This ring can be worn by itself or alongside a host of other statement rings if the motto is ‘more is more.'”
