Yes girls, you can be fashionable even when you’re on a budget! I’m one who does not splurge on branded apparel, yet I am quite a fashionista! 😎💃🏻
You don’t have to be famous or rich to look like a million dollars. Anyone can look stylish and modish. All it takes is knowing a few tricks of the trade. Here’s how you can be fashionable without breaking your bank:
1. Shop online
If you love fashion, like I do, you’ll admit that keeping up with current trends can be overwhelming and it burns a big hole in your pocket. You don’t have to walk into a glitzy boutique to get that stunning black long dress that Gigi Hadid wore at the recent Paris Fashion Week. Some online stores have replicate of what celebrities wore at a fraction of the price and you can also find cheap clothes for women at prices you’ll be amazed with from most of these online apparel stores.
2. Shop the classics
List down the fashion items that would make up your dream wardrobe. A small closet full of quality clothes that actually fit make you look so much better than a huge closet full of old and ill-fitting items ever will.
Also, stick to classic items and embellish with the trends. For example, for a woman, a classic might be an elegant black dress, and the trend would be an infinity scarf and statement necklace. Don’t forget to put on the classic red lipstick and red nail polish to complete your dressed up look.
The classic look depends on your style. I mostly prefer to think of the classics as items that you wear all the time. Items that can last a thousand washings. Items that really pull a lot of your wardrobe together. For me, it would be my short denim skirt.
3. Shop off-season
Putting together a winter wardrobe at the beginning of winter is expensive. And summer purchases in May often lead to regrets. Avoid temptation and save your bucks when no one else is buying; buy a couple of spaghetti strap cheap long dresses in late fall and your winter coats in April. You can scoop up great deals that way.
4. Sell or swap with friends
Swapping clothes with your friends can give new life to unloved pieces and help everyone pick out new pieces to freshen up their wardrobe.
5. Look for sales and clearance items
One of the best ways to shop with a low budget is to get your clothes from resale or outlet stores, rather than straight off the rack. Many great pieces end up in these stores due to an inability to move product, or sometimes because a store simply needed to make space for new stock, meaning you’ll find fantastic pieces at low prices in these stores. Online stores like CallaBuy often have discounts and clearance sale.
Staying fashionable doesn’t have to be expensive. Watch out for sales, monitor your local outlets, reject stores and thrift stores and allow friends to breathe new life into your wardrobe can keep you in full feather without racking up a debt. Get creative with your wardrobe to live the fashionista life on a budget.
