Spring Break Style Under $50

Mar 03, 2013

Spring Break is coming and no matter what you're doing, we want to help you do it in style! To make it even easier, we've broken it down into the essential must-haves. And the best bit? They're all under $50 so they won't break the bank. All you need is one really cool piece to update your style - a pair of stylish sunglasses, eye-catching sneakers or a fun dress is all you need to ramp up the style points for spring break! Check out our guide on how to look cute on the beach, in the city or just chilling at home...

1. Cute Printed Dress

We love this adorable printed dress from Forever21! Printed with little pink flowers, it will look good paired with anything from a little denim jacket, a hoodie or just a chunky cardigan for chilly nights.

A pair of chic, go-anywhere sandals is a must-have for any holiday. These pink ones will add a pop of colour to every outfit and they're comfortable to boot! It's a win-win.

4. Shorts That Go With Everything

So much more stylish than a pair of denim shorts, this navy eyelet pair from Joe Fresh are so cute, we wish they came in different colours. Sure, denim shorts are a classic but if you want to update your spring wardrobe, look for shorts with extra detailing like this pair. Pair with a cute graphic t-shirt like this heart one from Delia's.

Accented with bold stripes, this denim jacket is perfect for clashing with colours and prints.

Of course not! What kinds of people just go through their everyday lives shoving good kids into hard metal lockers? It's not right. I would never associate myself with a group like that. What kind of popular is that, shoving kids into lockers?

The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there. that's a good point.
