How To Upgrade Your Wardrobe on a Budget

Friday, July 17, 2020

Many people take a lot of pride in their wardrobe. You feel better and more confident if you look the part so you are likely always on the lookout for new items to add to your clothing collection. This can become an expensive hobby, especially if you prefer designer brands but the good news is that this doesn’t have to be the case. If you follow these three tips, you can enhance your wardrobe without breaking the bank.

Give Yourself a Monthly Clothing Allowance

You set a budget for other things you need to buy so make an allotment for clothing, too. By sticking to the budget, you can still get the satisfaction of buying new clothes without the guilt that comes with overspending. You’ll also be more likely to find ways to shop smart so you can get more clothes for less money. For instance, you may spend your entire allowance one month on a luxurious fur vest for women and then not allow yourself to purchase another clothing item until the next month. However, if you spend the money wisely, you may be able to purchase several blouses for the same price, meaning you get to go shopping more often throughout the month.
Mix and Match Pieces You Already Own

You don’t have to purchase an entire new outfit every time you go shopping. Buying one new piece should be sufficient because you probably already have plenty of other items you can wear with it. Don’t be afraid to create entirely new outfits out of pieces you already own. Not only will you save money on shopping for clothes, but you’ll also get more for your money because you’ll be wearing each item more often. Before you go shopping, look through the clothes you have and try to get something that goes with multiple pieces that are already in your closet. If you know you need certain new items, it helps to make a list so you can purchase clothing as you need it instead of checking your closet every month.

Shop Sales

The key to shopping on a budget is finding the right sales. This doesn’t mean you have to limit yourself to shopping in thrift stores, although it is a valid option. You may be able to find gently or never-worn designer items for a fraction of their regular prices. On the other hand, if you limit your shopping trips to high-end stores that rarely offer sales, you’ll quickly use up your monthly clothing allowance and not have much to show for it. Instead, shop at stores that offer high-quality, name-brand clothing items but offer frequent sales. Plan your shopping trips around these sales and you’ll be able to save a significant amount of money each month. You may also find it helpful to shop the clearance sections at your favorite stores so you can stock up on off-season items for a great price. You can even shop at online boutiques to find unique pieces of clothing for fantastic deals.

Clothing can be expensive but there are many ways to stock your wardrobe with new items without blowing your budget. If you plan out your budget in advance so you know how much you can afford to spend on clothes, you’ll have an easier time staying on track. Don’t be afraid to wear your items again with new accessories or to change up your outfits so you can gain an entirely new wardrobe with spending a lot of money. Finally, plan out your shopping trips so you can shop sales and get the most for your money. If you practice all three of these habits, you’ll be amazed at how much money you can save while buying new clothes.
