Top 7 Places to Shop for Affordable Spring Fashion – Fashion Steele NYC

It’s Spring and it’s almost my birthday month (May, I’m a Taurus babe) and I’ve been gearing up for an epic birthday trip by shopping affordable, mid-tier and luxury Spring sales. I’m in the market for flowing spring dresses, bold colorful pieces, chunky accessories, bikini’s and sandals. I’ve scoured the internet to find the perfect pieces for my upcoming trip and I’ve found some incredible pieces that I think you all would love. So before I wear them during my upcoming birthday trip in May, and before I show them on Instagram or YouTube, you all will get to see first hand, what I bought or plan to buy for my trip. As well as a few other pieces and places I love to shop for refreshing my spring wardrobe. Make sure to save and share this post for Spring and Summer outfit inspiration and follow me over on YouTube to see all the pieces I bought while in Paris for Paris Fashion Week earlier this month! The video will go live on Wednesday and I don’t want you all to miss it because there will be a giveaway! Here are the Top 7 Places to Shop for Spring Fashion Online.

LULUS.COM (Use code: MONROE20 for 20% Off) is one of the best places to shop for affordable well made Spring and Summer pieces. I recently did a YouTube Video with a Lulus haul detailing the only 4 Dresses Needed for a Capsule Spring Wardrobe that includes: A Silk/Satin Dress, A Mini Dress, A printed or floral dress and finally a crochet dress. All of which has for an incredible prices in addition to spring sandals, bags, sunglasses and more. The shipping from is also pretty quick and the pieces are great quality given the price.


Ssense is where I go with I want more unique pieces from up and coming designers and brands and more niche brands. They also always have amazing sales on designer pieces. I love their easy, breezy no frills vacation wear and knits. I got a lot of my Isa Boulder knit pieces and swimwear from Ssense. I also saw the my favorite invisible tank top from y/project is now back on Ssense in black, white, grey and green and also that it now comes in a bralette version. When I post this reel at the end of last year, it went viral with this tank top and it’s finally back in stock. So naturally I ordered the bralette version to wear with a long maxi skirt for my upcoming trip in may.


When I need a last minute look that will turn heads and be a standout pieces, I got straight to Revolve because their shipping is unbeatable. They also have tons of options from their primary brands which are more affordable like Lovers and Friends to luxury brands like Bottega. They are one of the only places I could find the clear Bottega sunglasses when they sold out on the Bottega website. They also have an incredible array of vacation and occasion dresses. I always get compliments anytime I wear their pieces. I have this incredible set in white and black and they have been my go-to chic outfits for outings in Miami the past week. I also wore this stunning yellow dress to meet Naomi Osaka during an LVMH x Tag Heuer event in Miami last week for the Tennis Open.


I’m loving The RealReal for those one of a kind statement pieces that I missed out on when they were in store. There are tons of Jacquemus vacation dresses on The RealReal for under $200 and they have such a vast collection of vintage Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior and YSL bags and shoes that I have an entire favorites folder saved on the website. They always have sales too and you can use code: REAL for 20% off of most items as well as receive $25 site credit when you sign up at The RealReal. I’ve been working with them for a few months to promote this program but I’ve been shopping with them, since I first started buying luxury. It’s definitely the first place I go to see if I can find a vintage or luxury piece that’s long been sold out for a great price. If you’re just starting your luxury journey whether that’s clothing, bags or footwear, I’d highly recommend starting at The RealReal so you can get your money’s worth.


I actually didn’t know much about this brand until they reached out to me last year to send me some gifting and I’ve been a fan ever since. I recently wore their rosette dress to an event with DSW and I go so many compliments. Their dresses are relatively affordable with most being between $60-$150 and around the same quality as Zara. I also like that they have very unique pieces that you won’t see everyone wearing. If you’re in the market for Spring & Summer dresses as well as accessories and you’ve never heard of Miss Lola, now is the time to check them out because they are having a Spring 20% Off everything sale I also love these denim sandals that I got form them last year as well. They have such cute and trendy footwear for us big feet gals.


Now I know what you’re thinking but Walmart actually has some cute and very affordable Spring and Summer pieces. When I shop at Walmart I usually shop their Scoop line or their Sophia Vergara line. I find that those two lines tend to have the most trendy and well made pieces. I also found out that Brandon Maxwell designs the Scoop line for Walmart and now I understand why I love that line so much. I recently got some faux leather shorts, a leather trench coat and the most amazing white tee from Walmart and created this reel. I’ll definitely be wearing all of these pieces throughout Spring, especially on chilly spring days in New York City. I’ve linked a few pieces that I own from Walmart above as well as some I’ve got my eye on. But the best thing about Walmart Fashion is that not only is it affordable, they also are size inclusive and I can get behind that. So many brands are choosing ing be exclusive but most of the pieces go up to a 4XL and I think that’s major.


I’ve also worked with Thredup and now it’s one of my favorites for Spring Dresses and accessories. I found this really cool Tibi dress as well as some Fendi aviator sunglasses for an incredible price. Thredup is like thrifting online and they have a designer and luxury section as well. The only thing about Thredup is that you kind of have to hunt for the deals and for the good pieces. I usually head to the luxury or Rent The Runway sales section but for under $50 you can find some amazing pieces.
