Spring Fashion 2012: Trendy Items To Add To Your Wardrobe (PHOTOS)


With constant trend changes and trying to stick to a budget, shoppers often wonder if they should spend the cash to update their wardrobe or not.

We talked to stylist and wardrobe consultant Nalinie Budhu about which spring pieces will be smart investments for the rest of the year.

"The tuxedo jacket is still a big layering piece to take any outfit from day to night -- over a white tank and a pair of jeans or over a long flowing dress," she says.

Budhu also suggests adding jewellery this season.

"Accessories can make the difference -- layers and chunky [pieces] will give you the added finish you're looking for," she says.

For attire, she recommends wide-legged pants, lightweight fabrics and flowy skirts. While adding leather accessories, wedges and geometric prints can enhance your overall look.

Check out the trends to keep in mind this season.
