Something that always comes up during fashion talks is the price. Far too many of us are focused on the cost and the price we pay for our fashion that we rarely ever look at the cheaper alternatives. There are always two extremes when it comes to style; you either spend too much or too little and people will never consider balancing their fashion with something that looks great without paying too much.
While being frugal is often seen as cheap (news flash; it’s not!) there are plenty of ways to update your look without having to pay exorbitant prices! In this article, we’re going to go through a couple of unique ways to help you get the look without having to pay the price.
Simple Changes Are Often the Best
Keeping it simple and using small changes to update your style is often the best way to get a completely new look without paying the price. The idea is that you can use small changes that build up over time that can completely transform your image. Whether it’s changing your hairstyle more often or using a new type of lipstick, small changes can add up and create a completely different image.
Browse a Thrift Store
While thrift store shopping might seem cheap, you can actually get some beautiful garments and accessories for an incredibly low price if you know where to look! You can find plenty of vintage pieces and there’s a lot to love about shopping in a thrift store that is filled with different colours and patterns. Of course, you may want to consider giving those clothes a good wash when you get home, but you’re guaranteed to find something unique every time you take a trip down to your local thrift store of choice.
Consider Online Retailers
While buying online might sound scary because it’s more frustrating to return clothing and you can’t try out sizes, it actually opens you up to a lot of potential savings. If we look through our dresses catalog, we’ll usually find some very stale dresses that everyone else wears because we all shop at the same place, or we’ll find super basic designs that just aren’t exciting or interesting. To remedy this, it’s a good idea to look online and purchase from overseas companies to get a completely new look for a low price. You’d be surprised at how unique the fashion from Asia or different parts of Europe is.
Use Lots of Accessories
If your clothes are relatively simple and inexpensive, then you can adorn them with lots of accessories to take the attention away from your basic garments and uplift them. Whether it’s using rings, a choker, different earrings or layered necklaces, there are many different ways to update your style so that you appear more lavish and stylish despite your basic clothes. Accessorizing is a fantastic way to make your outfit look a hundred times more personalized and expensive, so get used to it if you want to get the look on a budget!
