As the seasons continue to change, so do the fashions. All these new trends can make it impossible to keep up with the latest ‘what’s fashionable’ list. How can anyone afford all these clothes? Thankfully, there are many affordable ways to enhance your wardrobe that mean you don’t have to break the bank.
De-bobble and de-lint
Perhaps there is a sweater hiding at the back of your closet that used to be your favorite but has begun to look a little past its best? We’ve all been there. Not to worry. Lint rollers are a brilliant way to get all of that unwanted fluff off your clothes. Maybe the wool or cotton has started to bobble? There’s a trick for that too. A fabric shaver will get your clothes looking brand new in no time. You could be amazed at the results. If you really want to save money, a disposable razor also does the trick – just be careful you don’t get too close to the fabric.
Get creative with pantyhose
Pantyhose are accessories that can update your outfit without even trying. Turn that plain skirt into a brand new outfit with some lace-patterned pantyhose. Maybe your shorts look dull? A pair of pantyhose underneath can help break up the outfit. If it’s not warm enough to bare some skin, adding patterned pantyose or fishnets underneath your ripped jeans will turn you into a fashionista in no time – all without the price tag.
Dye yourself happy
There is always the constant struggle when it comes to denim. Do you fork out on the expensive designer pair and hope they last or buy a cheaper brand that may stretch and lose their color? This is even more of a problem when it comes to dark denim. The color can quickly fade out of these jeans meaning we have to hand over even more money to replace them. Instead, you can buy cheap bottles of dye online that you can use over and over again meaning you can hang onto your perfectly good jeans.
Invest in some pins
A little pin here and there can add a whole new level to any outfit. These look particularly great on denim jackets as they bring small splashes of color to your otherwise plain denim. The best bit? You can take them off, swap them around, and re-use them as you please without having to buy a brand new packet every time. Plus, no one will have the same design as you – an added bonus!
Become coupon savvy
Yes, all those discount emails may become annoying after signing up for every store newsletter out there. But what if you put those money-off codes to good use? These can save you a whole heap of money without you even having to do anything at all. Perfect. As an added bonus, many of these stores send out special treats around the holidays or birthdays as an even bigger incentive. If you’re going to be buying new clothes, you may as well save as much as you can!
Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize
And if we didn’t say it enough – accessorize! It’s amazing how much a few accessories can change an entire outfit. Plus, they are usually a lot more affordable than forking out on a new outfit all together. It could be a pair of statement earrings, an oversized bag, or a colored scarf. Whatever it is you need to make your outfit pop, there is an accessory for every occasion.
Keeping up with the latest fashions doesn’t have to be expensive. Thankfully, there are several ways that we can all update our wardrobe that don’t involve us forking out on designer brands, or having to rent a shipping container to store all our new purchases. At last!
