Update Your Wardrobe on a Budget

We could all use some extra cash to buy things we need, but somehow all we ever do is balancing our budgets and trying to figure out ways to save money. However, life goes on and we occasionally find ourselves in a situation where we want to buy a nice piece of clothes, but we tell ourselves that we can’t afford it. Don’t worry, there are ways to save money on clothes regardless of the season. 526454690_ee12e4c427_z

Don’t follow fashion trends blindly

Fashion is inspired by everyday life, and one interesting research has shown that French women do not really care about what is shown on TV or in a fashion magazine, but choose clothes based on what suites them and makes them look good. Besides, don’t you just hate it when you see someone else wearing the exact same outfit as you? With a lot of people buying what is considered ‘fashionable’ we end up with a lot of people wearing the exact same things like uniforms. Refuse to be blinded by trends and show how different you are.

Re-use your old clothes

We all have tons of old T-shirts we never wear and are sick of. Re-use your old clothes to make something new. There are dozens of different ways you can use an old T-shirt, and not to mention other parts of your wardrobe. Make stylish scarves, fashionable necklaces, trendy headbands, unique bags or even a sexy bikini using nothing but your old clothes. Have fun, be an artist for a day and save some money along the way. You will surely be one of a kind among your friends.

Out-of-season shopping pays off
Getting some new clothes and still staying on a budget is easy if you know when to go shopping. Postseason sales and clearance racks are simply the best times for you to spend less on new clothes. You have to be systematic and make a list of what exactly do you need for the upcoming year.

After you do this, make changes in your budget around seasonal purchases. Buy winter clothes such as coats and boots in late February, and remember that you can find a bikini online in the fall or in the winter and save a lot of money.

‘Spice up’ your outfit

One particular outfit can look elegant or casual depending on the accessories you decide to wear that day. If you have one particular blazer that looks good on you and you really like wearing, you can add a new statement necklace or a nicely coloured scarf, thus completely changing the way you look. Add colourful hats, statement necklaces and trendy bags to your wardrobe and wear different accessories every day to create different looks and stay elegant.

Buying gorgeous clothes on impulse just because they’re on sale doesn’t mean that you’ll save money. On the other hand, if you are about to buy a pricey item, try to save money by doing the following: get your money’s worth by investing in a classic shape and color. This way you can get more than a season’s wear out of it.
