Hey guys!!! I hope you are having the best day ever!! Today I want to share how to look chick on a budget! If there is one thing that I really enjoy talking about is affordable fashion and how to have a budget friendly wardrobe! I totally understand what it’s like to have to budget and make ends meet! My favorite places to shop are places that don’t break the bank! The outfits you see above are from Amazon and Walmart! You can definitely look chic without spending a lot of money! That’s why today I wanted to share my tips and tricks on how I look chic while staying on a budget.
Tip #1: Always look for sales!! My husband once said there is always a sale and he is 100% right! Most companies run sales often and timing it right is the key!! Always keep an eye out for their promotional emails! Typically the end of a season are great times to find sale items!! Finding a good sale will definitely help you stay in your budget!
Tip# 2: Determine your basics!! There are a few items that I would say are more valuable pieces in my wardrobe than others! For example shoes are definitely something I wear consistently! So when I go shopping for shoes I know that I am okay with spending a little more on a pair of booties that I will wear all fall and winter than I would on a trendy necklace that I may never wear more than 3 times! Determine your main staple pieces and than work around those pieces!
Tip #3: Find affordable trendy options! We all love to have trendy pieces but trust me it can get expensive really quick! And on top of that you may not even love the trendy item!! So my advice is save your money on the trendy items and look for an affordable option! For example I love the layered necklace look but I am not going to run out to David Yurman and buy 3 necklaces! Instead I found on Amazon several cute jewelry pieces that are very affordable but also feel my need to meet those awesome trends!
Tip #4: Quality over quantity! At the time it may seem appealing to have 5 pairs of black jeans but I think you would be a lot happier if you bought the one really good pair of jeans! Sometimes have just one of something is better than having multiples of something you find average!
Tip #5: Shop at affordable places! Walmart, Amazon, Old Navy and Target to name a few are very affordable places to shop!! They carry great products that are super affordable and really cute! Just because you don’t classify those stores as high end shopping stores, it doesn’t mean there isn’t really cute clothes!!! I absolutely love all those stores!! And truthfully I would rather spend my money at one of those stores anyways! All of those stores I mentioned above have really stepped up their fashion game!!
I hope these tips help!!! Remember you don’t have to break the bank to look beautiful!! Have a wonderful day!
