Who said that to look stylish you needed a large budget? You can be stylish even in these hard economic times. All you need is some creativity and the following great tips:
Before you go out to buy anything, take stock of what you already have. Many of us are fond of buying clothing items or accessories, wearing them once and filling them in the ‘for special occasions’ section of our wardrobes. These items in many cases get thrown to the back of the wardrobe and are never worn again. You know the saying ‘out of sight, out of mind’.
Going through your wardrobe could be a shocking revelation for you. You’re likely to find clothes that you had bought and forgotten about. You may even find items that are still in fashion and would look great with new items you have. It would also help prevent you from purchasing the same item again.
Many people purchase clothing items with the intention of matching it with a specific clothing item in their wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your clothes a little bit. Although that top looks perfect with that skirt, it may look even better with a pair of stretch denims. You can come up with several new looks just by mixing up your wardrobe a little bit.
If you like your old clothes but feel that they could be a little outdated, don’t dump them in the trash bag just yet. You can freshen up old clothes and use them to express your sense of style by adding a few accessories. You can add a stylish beaded necklace or scarf to a dress or blouse to breathe life into your look.
If you aren’t happy with some items in your wardrobe, don’t be hasty in throwing them away. Your friends may like them. You can swap clothes that you don’t like for clothes that your friend has that you like. You will not only get new clothes for free but will also have the pleasure of making your friend happy.
Ok. So you think you would do better with some new additions to your wardrobe. You don’t have to get the latest items from the high fashion stores. There are several stores that stock just as fashionable clothes for more affordable prices. You may even have better luck with online stores. Keep your eyes open and your ears to the ground.
