Each season I try to find one to two trends worth buying, however, I always have a max in my head that I know I am not willing to spend more than that on. For Spring 2020, two trends that I am loving are wide brim hats (which we saw in the fall too) and puff sleeves blouses, but how much do I spend on this season’s trends?
How Much Do I Spend On This Season’s Trends?
Wide Brim Hats
I bought a wide brim hat in the fall when I first started seeing them everywhere. I started slowly with a $20 a dark brown one from Target. This Spring I decided to purchase two more in a light pink and a cream. They are both very Spring-y but can be worn with a lot of different outfits and now that I have two I am done buying hats for this season.
These felt wide brim hats are most commonly $80-150+ which is not something I want to pay for when I might only get 1 season of wear out of it, since trends don’t typically last for longer than that. For something like an accessory, my max budget is $30. A lot of my blogger friends have this hat for $80, but that is just way too far outside my budget. I found this hat for only $29 and this one for only $15 (with a coupon) and they are both exactly what I was looking for.
Puff Statement Sleeve Blouses
A statement sleeve is a trend that’s been around a while, but this season we are seeing it’s all about the puff and specifically an exaggerated shoulder. I first tried on this cream puff sleeve blouse in my Trunk Club box, but again wasn’t willing to splurge. I then kept my eye on it and it eventually went on sale. For something like this, I am not willing to spend more than $50 and that’s the max. Since I invested in this one, moving forward I won’t be willing to spend quite as much.
I find that picking one to two trends helps me not feel overwhelmed each season and I can still remain true to my style as well stay within my budget by not splurging on every single trendy piece in my wardrobe.
