You don't have to spend a lot to update your wardrobe this Spring, according to Keri Branch of the Philadelphia Premium Outlets.

"There's a couple really great trends that you can concentrate on that will really give your wardrobe a makeover for the warm weather," Branch says.

Her first must-have: a floral or graphic print dress in bright colors.

"On our model, we're showing Ann Taylor's graphic print," Branch describes. "It's a cool navy and gorgeous amethyst color, perfect for the summertime. It's a replacement for that little black dress that you were holding onto from last season."

The dress and a pair of versatile nude-colored peep-toe pumps retail for $306, but at the outlets you can get them both for $107.

Color's also the big news in jackets.

"We're showing, from Kenneth Cole, today a bright lime-green trench coat," Branch explains. "And with the way the weather goes, you never know if it's going to rain or be a little cooler, so a trench coat is perfect to get you through the Spring season. It's stylish and functional."

The trench retails for $200, but at the Outlets, you can get it for $83.

And there's good news for ladies who never quite got into the skinny jean trend. This spring, the look's more relaxed.

Branch says, "We're definitely seeing that relaxed, slouch look with the boyfriend jean, a little more relaxed fit. You can throw it on with a plain white t-shirt, or a nice blazer, dress it up, dress it down."

Pair the jeans with strappy sandals to take them into warmer weather. These jeans and sandals retail for $149 at the Gap, but at the outlets, you'll pay just $68.
