Fashion is a form of expression, but sometimes it is hard to express yourself with a low budget. Most people think being fashionable means you only wear luxury brands, but it’s not always about where you shop, it’s about how you wear your outfit.
It is so easy to shop for less and still look like you spent a lot of money on your look. There are so many stores like Forever 21, H&M and Uniqlo that will give you both quality and quantity with a low budget.
From online brick and mortar, there are plenty of methods a person can use to get a bargain on fashion. Below are a few popular methods you may have heard of, but now is the time to give it a try.
Shopping online can sometimes save you more money than shopping in a store. Certain stores will offer more discounts on certain products just for shopping online. For example, at the end of the year, Saksfifthavenue.com and Neimanmarcus.com have huge end of the year sales. There are also certain online sites that are just for giving discounts on today’s fashion like, Overstock.com, Ideeli.com, and GiltGroupe.com.
As far back as I can remember, I can recall my grandmother clipping coupons for groceries, but I would have never predicted that I would be able to clip coupons for fashion. Now, you can print out coupons for certain stores for an extra bargain on all of your shopping needs. Also, stores send out coupons in the paper for an extra percentage off or dollar amount off when shopping on certain days. Macy’s is known for sending out coupons and now more department stores and following suit.
Shopping in Consignment store
In the past, it was considered bad to shop in the thrift store but now, it is cool. Shopping in consignment stores like the Thrift store, Savers and small neighborhood consignment shops is the best way to bargain shop and find vintage clothing. The good thing about consignment shops is that not only can you bargain shop; you can also take your gently used clothes in and get money to shop more.
Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable. As long as you feel great in what you are wearing, it doesn’t matter how much you spent on your look. Confidence makes the look fashionable and not the actual garment. Become a bargain shopper and you will save more money and still be stylish and fashion forward.
