To be honest, I seriously look forward to writing these monthly Style Steals installments. Not only do I get to do a little window (or screen) shopping, but this column really challenges me to find the best products at affordable prices. Trends come and go, so my theory is to choose wisely and splurge wisely as well. The trick is to find pieces that will survive a season or two without going out of style. With this next roundup of splurge vs. save, you’ll find spring trends that will easily spill into hot summer days. From floppy sun hats to spring’s most coveted pattern (spoiler alert: it’s florals), this post will save you pretty pennies and keep your wardrobe shining all season long…
