Page 1 of 2Think those fashion-forward trends are too expensive for your small clothing budget? Think again! You can have champagne taste and still get the wardrobe you want by adopting some smart, budget-friendly shopping tips. These seven dollar-saving tricks will help you get the most bang for your buck while providing you with a fabulously frugal wardrobe.
Tip #1: Skip the Department Store, Spend Online
A lot of the time, shopping online can be a big money saver when it comes to buying new clothing items. If you try something on at the store that you absolutely love, go ahead and jot down the name, brand, style and size then search for the same item online rather than purchasing in-store. The chances are in your favor that you’ll find a better deal online. Signing up for your favorite retailer’s email newsletters will also keep you in the loop as they send you the skinny on sales directly to your inbox (some sales and clearance items are online exclusive, too!). You can save a pretty penny on not just tops, dresses and jeans, but designer shoes and accessories, too.
Tip #2: Scour the Web for Coupon Codes
Tip #3: Spend Less with Social Media
Everyone should purchase some durable, basic pieces for their wardrobe that they can mix and match then pair up with practically anything. A wardrobe that contains certain pieces will help you keep more cash in your pocket each season--you’ll already have your tops, skirts and jeans no matter what! Fill your closet with classic, solid colors, neutrals, a little black dress and some dark denim. Then, whenever the seasons change, shop for some new trendy accessories, jackets and shoes to add some fun, sophistication or pops of color to your classic wardrobe.
