When you are anything like me, you will be the kind of a person who will be spending more hours drooling in front of the boutiques than the number of hours that you will spend when visiting the shops for purchases. My web browser is often crowded with clothing stores tabs while my Facebook news feeds will also be dominated by the fashion ads.
Even though I will spend many hours drooling on the shops, I will hesitate to plunge on a given sassy denim or even that buttery leather jacket, and the simple reason is that my wallet can only stretch that far. Here are some tips that will help get fashionable even when you are on budget.
The secret when one wants to maintain a given budget is ensuring that you set one. It will be hard for your to get stylish and at the same time remain frugal if you do not take time to determine your financial boundaries. It is desirable that you come up with a budget that will determine the amount of money that you are willing to spend every month on clothing. One needs to take time and determine their expenditures in a given month as well as the sources of income before you can come up with the amount of cash that you will afford to spend on ‘fun’ things. It is also desirable that you do self-tracking using a budget tool or app in the form of I like Mint or PocketGuard.
While I do not mean that every individual who will be on budget while shopping should be relegated to the sales racks, one will have the chance to end up with more when they choose to start by buying discounted items. When one is shopping online, the best way to ensure that you remain economical is ensuring that you fill the cart with the less-expensive or discounted items first.
Even though this sounds counterintuitive, when one purchases high-quality items that will last longer, it will be more cost-effective than buying lesser quality items even on the cheap. One gets weary of replacing the cheap shoes after a year or two, and one should consider buying high-quality boots and sneakers. It is the same case for swimsuits and all other wardrobe staples.
The thrift stores get a bad rap, but they can also prove to be the best place to get true treasures. Consignment stores, as well as outlet stores, also provide you the chance to buy ‘like new’ items’ and it is also possible to purchase consigned clothing online via sites like Poshmark.
One can also rely on the current wardrobe and also gt fashionable. There is the need for one to consider assembling what they have in their wardrobe and feel free, confident and daring come up with daring combinations.
