Once again, we’re at the start of a new season. This means that now is the time to go through your wardrobe to see what you’ve already got and what you need to invest in to stay on trend this season. Although fashion changes constantly, they don’t tend to change dramatically from year to year. This means there’s no reason not to wear your clothes from last fall. Replacing your entire wardrobe can be costly, which if you’re on a tight budget can be a bit of an issue. However, it doesn’t have to be overly expensive to update your wardrobe. Below are some tips and suggestions for making your fall wardrobe update a little more budget friendly.
Sell your old clothes online
The saying waste not, want not, is apt when it comes to fashion. Instead of leaving clothes that you no longer wear in your wardrobe to not be worn, sell them. If you’ve got items that you know you won’t wear again, it makes sense to sell them. By doing so, you’ll clear out some closet space ready for your new items and will make a little extra money to put towards your new clothing. The best place to sell old clothes is online on sites like eBay and Vimeo, as well as on Facebook selling pages. While you may only get a few dollars for each item of clothing that you sell, every penny counts, and it will soon add up. Put all the money you make in a savings account and then take it out when you’ve got enough to hit the shops.
Take advantage of deals and discounts
When you’re on a budget, one of the best things you can do is take advantage of any deals and discounts that are on offer. While there are sometimes deals in store, you will find that the majority of the deals and discounts are online. So it may be worth shopping online, rather than in-store. If you take the time to Google deals and discounts for your favorite stores, you’re sure to find some good deals, such as a Payless coupon code to use. From deals on clothing to reduce shipping prices, there are plenty of ways you can save when shopping online.
Use accessories to update older outfits
If money is tight, a great way (and my favorite way) add style to your wardrobe is by using accessories to update your older outfits. Accessories don’t tend to cost too much to buy and are a great way to breathe new life into old items of clothing. From bags and scarfs to bracelets and shoes, a few well thought out pieces can make a world of difference to how stylish an outfit looks. If you’re unsure, what types of accessories would work with your clothes, make an appointment to see a personal shopper. They should be able to give you some tips for accessorizing your outfits to add style and personality.
Just because money is tight, that doesn’t mean you can’t update your wardrobe this fall. If you’re smart about how you go about it, you can ensure that even when on a budget, you always look stylish and on trend.
