Suits You! Looking Good On A Budget
There’s nothing better than hitting the shops for some retail therapy. It’s an instant mood booster and also gives you an excuse to hang out with all your girlfriends. You can arrange to meet for a coffee or brunch before heading to your favorite shops!
There’s just one downside of all this shopping – it is incredibly expensive! Even if you stick to the cheaper clothes shops, you will find that going shopping every weekend starts to affect your bank balance. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way you could bring down the cost of your fashion habit even further? Well, you can! You just need to use these useful tips!
Shop In The Sales
One of the most obvious ways you can bring down your monthly clothes bill is by shopping in the sales. Generally speaking, most clothes stores will hold their sales as each season is coming to an end so that they can clear their rails and shelves for all the new clothes they need to stock. There are also some sales associated with public holidays. For example, many clothes stores drop their prices straight after Christmas to try and attract more customers through their doors.
Make Your Own
Feeling adventurous? Well, how about trying to make your own clothes?! As a matter of fact, it isn’t quite as difficult as what you might think. According to Stitch and Sew, you just need to pick one of the best sewing machines on the market. This will make the whole sewing process a lot easier and quicker. There are lots of sewing patterns online for various types of clothings in different fashions so you won’t have too much trouble finding out how to create your ideal garment.
Want to go shopping but there aren’t any sales on at the minute? No worries, you can still browse online fashion stores. In fact, most shops that have both physical locations and online shops will often offer cheaper prices online. You will also find that there are a lot more special deals and discounts available to online shoppers. It’s worth signing up to all of your favorite stores’ email newsletters. Most shops send out these newsletters on a weekly basis and often put in special discount codes for loyal online shoppers.
If you don’t already shop vintage, it’s worth looking for some vintage fashion. This style of clothing is very much in right now and it’s very easy to wear no matter what type of occasion you are dressing for. Not only that, though, but you can often find some great vintage clothing items at very reasonable prices.
