No one wants to leave the house looking frumpy but some budgets are too small to support clothing shopping sprees.
Looking stylish does not need to come at a high price so follow these tips when finances are limited.
Friends will envy your new wardrobe and wonder how you were able to afford it. Let them in on the secrets as long as they promise not to copy your fabulous style!
If the closet is filled with beautiful clothing but this apparel has become old news to you, consider swapping clothes with friends or even strangers. Visit clothes swapping websites to trade fashions with others or take clothes to a swish, the hip term for a label swapping party.
Organize your own swish via the Swishing website and invite everyone in the area to share clothing with each other.
When an important event is looming and the perfect outfit and accessories are too expensive, borrow them. If friends do not have the ideal dress or suit, go online to find a website that features reasonable borrowing rates. The apparel is nearly new and you will only be wearing it once so why spend an entire paycheck to purchase it?
Find Designer Clothing For Less
There is no reason to shop in expensive boutiques when the Internet features sites that offer designer clothes at up to 80 percent discounts. Look for websites featuring secret sales and others that offer the fashions of the season at unbeatable prices. Shoppers who are patient can find great end of season deals online and in stores. This is the time to pick up underwear, jeans, t-shirts, and other wardrobe staples.
General Tips To Keep Wardrobe Costs Low
Dressing in neutral hues prevents clothing from looking dated. Each season brings hot new colors but these fall out of favor within months. Avoid going from fashion icon to fashion victim in a short time by keeping the wardrobe classic and neutral.
Since everything old eventually becomes new again, purchase fad clothing from charity shops and vintage fashion fairs.
Always buy clothing that fits because apparel in other sizes will be worn less frequently. You may hope to lose ten pounds but if that does not happen, the clothing will sit unworn. If a new outfit is not as appealing when tried on at home, return it.
Go through the closet regularly to find rarely worn items and make these the center of the wardrobe for a while.
