Time to put away those winter boots and dig out the flip flops and shorts. It's SPRING! And what better way to welcome in the warm, sunny weather than with a fresh new style? But don't worry, you don't have to spend a lot of money to refresh your style this spring. There are a lot of things you can do for barely any money at all that will make you feel ready to take on the sunshine and feel fresh and rejuvenated this year. Read below for some of the best ways to give yourself a new look this spring.
One of the best ways to make you feel like a new woman is to paint those boring nails a new color. Try for a pretty pastel color such as light blue, green, purple, pink or even yellow. The colors alone will make you feel like summer has already arrived.
Spring is the perfect time to exfoliate your skin that is likely dry from the long winter months. You can buy a good inexpensive exfoliate peel from your local drugstore. Try adding a few drops of self-tanner to a tinted moisturizer to give you that extra radiant look.
Time to pluck away those unwanted shaggy stray eyebrows you let take over your face this winter. But be careful to not over-pluck. Brushy brows are in now and will help you look youthful while thin brows look too harsh. So be careful to just pluck the extra strays so you don't look like you have penciled on your brows.
4. Mix vs. Match
This year is all about mixing up your style so don't be afraid to clash when it comes to your outfit. It's suggested, however, that you keep prints the same – such as a top and skirt that are both florals, although they can be different colors. Go ahead, be bold and enjoy the fun of mixing up your colors this season.
It's time to say goodbye to your winter scent and bring it your spring scent. Opt for something that is light and breezy. You can ask any employee at the perfume counter what is popular for spring and summer and you will walk away feeling ready to hit the beach.
6. Lip Time
Bright is in this season but if you aren't into the hot red lipstick, you can opt for a hot pink one that not only screams spring but helps make your teeth look brighter. Make sure you get help from a make-up expert to ensure you choose the appropriate shade for your skin tone. If you're fair, you will want to choose a coral or orange variety of lipstick.
No one needs to be convinced to go shoe shopping, right? But choosing the appropriate shoes for spring may not be so easy. Instead of buying your classic high heel, try purchasing a wedged heel. They are super comfortable and come in so many colours and patterns that you will have problems choosing just one pair. They look best with cropped pants or with a pretty dress.
8. Clothing & Accessory Swap
If you don't have a lot of money to spend on a new wardrobe this season consider hosting a clothing and accessory swap. Invite all of your friends to bring something from their closet that they are bored of and don't wear anymore. Your friends can browse the items and choose new ones for themselves. You'll not only find some great new pieces to take home with you, but by getting rid of some of your old stuff you will get the extra storage in your closet to add your new items! It's a win win for everyone.
9. Go Shopping with a New Friend
If you always go shopping with the same person you are likely to always go into the same stores and buy the same type of things. But if you are really ready to change up and refresh your style, why not go shopping with someone new? You will end up in different stores and will be encouraged to try on things you normally wouldn't consider trying.
It has never been easier to find out what's in style nowadays because of cool sites like Pinterest. All you have to do is go on and find what pins you like, print them off and go find the items at your local mall. It's kind of like having your own personal shopping expert at your fingertips. So take advantage of today's technology and get pinning!
