Fashion magazines and stores tell us that money is a very important thing when it comes to staying in fashion trends. This is actually not true, everytime you see something new you would want to buy it and that´s how the Fashion Industry works. It constantly feeds on that need of being in ¨style¨.
But the fact is that money cannot buy taste or style, it has to come from you no matter which budget you have at your disposal. It´s not about buying more low-quality cheap clothes, but instead investing in certain items. On this post will give you some shopping and dressing tips that will help you optimize your wardrobe.
GO FOR SIMPLE AND CLEAN DESIGNS:
When the garments have too many detailing (ruffles, fishnets, fancy closure, and prints) then it´s a fashionable piece. These items are more likely to go out of fashion faster, though in time most of these do come back in style. But when it comes to budget shopping they must be treated as a separate investment.
CHOOSE SOLID COLORS OVERPRINTS:
When it comes to styling in colors there will be more variety of combinations when you choose a solid color. Most of these looks are transitional from day to night making these items a world of choices. The same thing as I said before if you do buy prints they must be treated as separate investments or considered statement pieces.
GO FOR PIECES THAT YOU CAN COMBINE AND LAYER:
When you are buying a day to night dress, for example, you have to take into consideration the material, possibilities of combinations or if its worth the price for the number of wears it will have. Experts recommend that you buy a dress, which can be worn on many occasions. Please take into consideration that many party dresses do work in this guide, but some statement pieces will be only worn on certain occasions and usually, they are not in this budget.
MAKE THE TEXTURES VARY, NOT JUST THE COLORS:
Some people like experimenting with colors and textures when it comes to fashion trends. This is a great idea, although try not to go too experimental, due to the fact that prices might go up. Try buying certain pieces in a color or texture that will combine with your entire closet.
MAKE YOUR EXISTING CLOTHES LOOK IMPECCABLE:
Please do take care of your clothes based on fabric, caring instructions, how to wash and how to store them. A good fashionista treats her clothing with love, this way her clothes will always be on spot. Some garments can last for years time if you take care of them.
WITH ALL THIS SAID I HOPE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THAT DRESSING ON A BUDGET IS SOMETHING REAL, IT´S HAVING A GUIDE ON WHAT AND HOW TO BUY.
BEFORE FAST FASHION EXISTED PEOPLE OWNED LESS PIECES AND APPRECIATED THE VALUE AND QUALITY OFF EACH PIECE OF CLOTHING.
