Looking great in your clothes doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds of dollars on an outfit from a designer store or on a custom-fitted dress.
Here are 7 tips on how to look great while staying on budget.
1. Make the most of the clothes you already own
Take some time to review your closet. Mix and match your clothes to create new styles and outfits. Sell or donate the clothes you don’t wear.
2. Buy fewer clothes
Focus on fewer things that you really love. Buy things that can go together and coordinate with other items in your wardrobe.
3. Buy classic items
Classics are styles that have been popular for years, like a little black dress for, or a great fitting pair of pants. Combine classic items with trendy accessories.
4. Shop the off-season
You can find deep discounts if you shop for your favorite designer clothes in the off-season.
By shopping for summer sandals in November you can find a great off-season bargain.
5. Avoid designer stores
You can get discount designer clothes for less if you shop at closeout websites or discount stores, such as Nordstrom Rack, T.J.Maxx, Marshall’s etc.
6. Stay on track with your budget
If you go shopping for clothes set a limit on how much you can spend. Get that much cash from the bank and keep it on you. That will help you stay within your budget.
7. Buy second-hand items
Thrift stores have some unbelievable deals on high quality items that cost a fortune in high-end fashion stores. You will find a selection of near-new clothes, shoes and accessories there.
