How To Save Money On Clothing And Still Look Fashionable

Mar 7, 2008
Are you one of those that desire to have the latest fashions? If so then you probably know that the price for staying fashionable is a light pocketbook! It costs money to keep up with the latest fashions but there are some things that you can do to lessen the pain. Sometimes it can be as simple as just making the choice of a few cheaper items that you can combine and mix to create your own look instead of spending all your money on one expensive outfit.

There is an old adage of many fashionistas that clothes can make a huge impact on how an individual is perceived. For many people, the clothing that they wear is directly representative of that person's individual personality. This does not mean that you must have the most trendy and expensive clothes in my opinion. You can make a good impression and turn heads without emptying your wallet in the process.

Instead of blowing your clothing budget on a couple of sets of high priced designer clothing it is far better to buy several different items that you can mix with each other and perhaps with other clothes you already have to give them a fresh look. This will enable you to have a much larger and more flexible wardrobe that will make it appear that you have even more outfits than you do and it gives you the ability to get more bang for your buck.

One of the secrets of people that make the most of this approach is to research the things that you are interested in and know what they cost and where to find them at the best prices. Where people make big mistakes is in buying items on impulse without taking the time to research the items prior to the purchase.

One of the places that many people find treasures for their wardrobes is a local thrift store. Thrift stores as well as consignment shops can be great places to not only get great bargains, but you may be able to pick up some designer pieces that are at a fraction of the price they originally sold for and are still in like new condition. In the case of the non profit thrift stores that usually exist to raise money for some organization you are also getting the personal satisfaction of knowing that you are doing something positive for a good cause.

Another point to keep in mind is that brand names do not always mean quality clothing. It is far better to look for quality first instead of the name. Buy quality items that you can do more with than just buying something for the name.
