Sparkly Embellished Tees
The best part about these feminine tees is that you don’t have to worry about wearing a necklace – perfect for warmer weather, when you’d rather not pile on layers of chains. For all-out glamor, try this simple tee ($93.99) covered in matte white sequins. For a more low-key, lower-budget option, try Liz Lange’s (non-maternity) tee ($49.90), which we’d wear with jeans on the weekend, or as a lunchtime cover-up on trips to the beach.
Pastel Eyes That Pop
Give your dark winter colors a vacation, and switch to lighter, brighter pastels for spring; By Lauren Luke palettes ($37) have all the colors you need to create the perfect pastel eye, plus the lips and cheeks to go with it. If all you need is the eyeshadow, try Maybelline’s four-color Eye Studio palettes ($8.49) for a budget pastel fix.
Walkable Wedge Shoes
Wedges are easier to walk in than sky-high heels, and they’re back in stores this spring, in lots of brights and neutrals to complement warm-weather clothes. We love these two yellow pairs: Chie Mihara’s suede wedges ($390) are luxe but substantial, and Old Navy’s faux leather version ($29.50) is a good way to try a bright shoe without an expensive commitment.
Easy At-Home Beauty
Any way you look at it, at-home beauty treatments are less expensive than multiple spa visits. emerginC skin care ($50-$150) makes spa-quality skin treatments packed with vitamins and natural ingredients to keep skin glowing. Garnier’s skin care line ($5-$20) looks and feels luxe, too, but at drugstore prices (and we love their moisturizers).
