5 Ways To Improve Your Wardrobe On A Budget

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

There comes a point in everyone's life, when we stand in front of our closets and think everything looks drab and boring. It's this sight that turns our shopping spree mode on, and soon we've lost our money to shoes, clothes and accessories. With all the new collections rolling out every season, it's only natural that might crave a few new things, but what about those days when your budget won't allow a new purchase and yet you want to look your very best? If you find yourself facing this situation a lot then it's time for you to look bold, beautiful and fabulous, without the need of breaking your back:

1. Invest In Classics and Basics

There are some wardrobe essentials that would save you tons of money, no matter what the season or occasion is. If these basics are covered, you can always create your own mix-and-match combos around the basics. So take a good look in your closet, and be sure that you aren't short of a little black dress, a white blouse, a solid color tee and turtleneck, a pair of jeans, and lastly, a sturdy leather jacket.

2. Know Your Shoes

Out of everything, shoes are the first thing people see, so never undermine their importance. Though some can be pricey, especially when it comes to men's wear, but this investment can last a long time (and survive fashion trends too). So while you create your list of essentials, keep a fancy pair for the formal events, a neutral pair for the casual ones and lastly, a comfortable pair for your everyday use, so that you can feel great in these all day, without compromising your fashion sense.

3. Shop Sales and Consignment Stores

If the shopaholic in you just can't resist shopping, then you might want to check out the sales. No matter what season or brand it is, you can be sure of one thing: mid-season and end of season sales. Therefore, keep some money aside to take advantage of prices when they take a dip. If you lack the patience to wait for end-of-season sales, find a few local consignment shops and check out the deals there. You can find pretty good unused and slightly used apparel there too.

4. DIY Your Accessories

The quickest way of revamping your old clothes is using accessories. A trendy hat, a few necklaces or even a statement bracelet can add a much-needed touch of glam to your already worn and tested look. But the price on them can seem like a nightmare, especially if you are on a budget. To solve this puzzle, all you need is some creativity, YouTube and a whole lot of your existing accessories. Believe in the power of DIYs as they will never let you down.

5. Maintain What You Already Have

The devil lies in the details, and so does fashion. This is why always treasure your belongings and keep them neat and clean. This won't expand your wardrobe or turn heads while you walk, but it will surely increase the overall life of your stuff, which is absolutely crucial if you are on a budget. Nevertheless, a crisp-ironed shirt, a neat-hemmed pant and your eye to detail will surely earn you some extra compliments.
