But there is no need to spend a fortune on new garments. It is possible to tap into spring's most coveted trends without breaking the bank.
From stand-out slogan T-shirts to spring coats and clutch bags, there is something for everyone.
Supermarket retailers such as George at Asda or F+F at Tesco are a fantastic place to bag a bargain.
There are plenty of good quality basics, including day dresses as well as statement skirts and shirts.
Likewise, Primark is a savvy choice for shoppers who are trying find on-trend pieces at reasonable prices.
Look for colours which wash well, such as grey or cream, and try to spot cotton fabrics.
Accessories and shoes are also a good - and simple - way to take your look into the new season.
Look out for sandals with two straps (both flats and heels) and bags with unusual details or prints.
