Being Fashionable On A Budget
This pandemic has seen a lot of job losses, additional expenses and monetary pulls. However, it is hardly fair that a few less bucks should affect our inner divas. It’s safe to say that the fashion blues can easily be done away with by making smart choices while adding new items for your dream closet while making sure that it doesn’t pinch your pockets.
Mentioned below are some pointers that will guide you during your next purchase.
1. Get on the net!!
There are fashion shopping websites like NNNOW that offer better offers than the rest. With the trendiest apparels and accessories available before they hit the local stores, they also bring the widest plethora of options right to your fingertips while being in the safety of your homes. They offer better price reductions and more frequent offers than the showrooms.
2. Old is Gold!!
Scavenge through the most inner depths of your closet to find the long-lost gems. Get your creative juices flowing and revamp it into something new by either mixing & matching the clothing items or by relying on your trusty scissors and sewing kit.
This will not only save you a couple bucks but will also chase the lockdown boredom away by getting your mind fall into the rabbit hole and explore new worlds!
3. Nifty Thrifting!!
What’s better than finding old masterpieces at really pocket-friendly prices?! There are an increasing number of thrift shops that are going online, and they are the perfect destination for aesthetic lovers. They will quench the thirsts of all those obsessed with cottage aesthetic that has been flooding Instagram and Pinterest of late.
These fashion pieces are the perfect comeback of the iconic fashion trends of the past, keeping these styles rolling through the folds of time. If you don’t mind wearing something that been worn before for the sake of fashion, then thrifting is the therapy you were awaiting.
4. Sell what doesn’t ring a Bell!!
Look through your closet and pull-out items that just don’t do it for you anymore. Don’t just toss them away as one man’s trash is another’s treasure! Get creative and click some good pictures and put them up for sale on desired sales platforms like eBay, Facebook, etc. A few bucks made are better than none.
Doing this will be beneficial in two ways – first, you get your closet cleaned out for new purchases and second, the extra bucks will get you something better to add to your dream closet.
5. Know your Flow!!
Decide and figure out just what you need and want and then stick to the plan. Undecided surfing for fashion pieces will only make you buy more and thereby spend more money than you intended to!
Knowing what you need will just make it a smoother experience with no temptations from what you don’t actually want. It will also help you calculate just how much you need to invest, helping you keep track of your fashion expenses.
Fashion is all about feeling your best, and a hurting pocket is just not what you seek through the process. Fashion is about finding your individuality and it’s hardly justified that money should pose an interference. Thus, don’t shop less, shop smart.
