Dressing in the latest fashions can cost a small fortune and unless you are a member of the Royal Family, it may be next to impossible to keep up with the current trends. If you would like to dress in the latest styles but just don’t have the budget to accommodate your tastes, here are 3 style tips that don’t cost a fortune.
1) Learn to Accessorise
One of the wisest moves you can make is to learn to accessorise your outfits to make them look totally different each time you wear them. Choose plain colours that can be worn with literally anything and then buy scarves, jewellery, shoes and hats that dress up the outfit and give it a whole new look.
Black, brown, grey and white are great colours that can be accessorised easily but brighter colours like orange, red, pink and yellow are much more difficult to mix and match. Somewhere in the middle of the line there are greens and blues that can work with a multitude of other colours but these should be used sparingly.
2) Shop for End of Season Bargains
Somewhere towards the end of each season all the current season’s clothing and accessories go on sale. Merchants are looking to make space for new fashions for the coming months and it really isn’t worth their time, effort or space to store clothing that won’t be needed for an entire year.
Sometimes it is possible to get fashions for a discount as much as 75% off and if you choose wisely, they will be styles which can be worn year after year. Remember the tip to choose colours which can be accessorised? This is where that tip will come in handy!
3) Look for Online Bargains and Voucher Codes
One of the biggest expenses can be footwear. Sometimes you can find voucher codes for big savings but if you often buy shoes online, one thing you might do is look for merchants that offer discounts regularly. Sometimes it pays to shop online because merchants don’t have high overhead and can pass the savings on to their customers. You’d be amazed at just how much you can save if you find the right site.
Whether looking for trendy clothes to wear at the workplace or for a night out on the town, few people have an unlimited budget at their disposal. Find end of season specials, voucher codes, cheap online vendors and even those that offer free shipping.
Choose plain solid colours that can be accessorised for new looks and buy styles that will live on year after year. With a little creativity and a whole lot of foresight you really can dress like a king on a pauper’s budget. These 3 style tips are just the beginning but the point is this, you don’t need to spend a small fortune to look great in today’s fashions.
