Saving Big by Shopping Smart
Staying up to date on all of the latest fashion trends can really take a toll on your budget. An average outfit can cost anywhere from $75-$150. Add the cost of accessories, makeup, shoes, and undergarments and you end up asking yourself, who can even afford to be a woman these days? Don’t get discouraged, you can have all of the season’s must-haves without breaking the bank! You just have to shop smart! Here are a few tricks on how to save big while still looking fabulous.
Versatility is key when trying to upgrade your wardrobe without maxing out those credit cards. Think of your clothing as an investment. Are you going to wear the item multiple times? Can you create a variety of outfits with this item? Do you already own pieces that will match the item you want to buy? If you can answer yes to these questions, then it will most likely be a great addition to your wardrobe. But if you can’t see the long term value in the item then it’s probably a good idea to pass.
As you load up on versatile pieces for your wardrobe, don’t forget about the power of accessorizing! Accessories are a great and often inexpensive way to utilize your wardrobe pieces. So, instead of buying 10 different shirts, try buying 2-3 basic tops and add different statement necklaces to each one. Other great inexpensive accessories that will enhance your wardrobe are patterned scarves, layered necklaces, and fun kimonos.
Shop out of Season:
This is one of my favorite ways to save on a great wardrobe! Since its spring right now, all of the fall and winter items are on sale, which makes it the perfect time to save on those warm, expensive winter sweaters. Then once its winter, all of the strappy tanks and jean shorts are marked down. Don’t be afraid to go ahead and buy these out of season items. Because before you know it, fall will be here and you’ll get stuck paying full price for your fall jackets. It does require patience and a lot of self-control but stick with it and your wallet will be sure to thank you!
